Miley Cyrus' Pasties Are Her Lil' Kim Moment (PHOTOS)

Miley Cyrus has been running through an exhaustive checklist of provocative clothing over recent months. Thigh-high boots? Check. Bras as tops? Check. No clothes at all? Yep, check. But somehow, she hadn't yet gotten to celebrities' favorite head-turning style: pasties. (Hard to believe, right?)

Cyrus checked that final sartorial statement off the list on Saturday, when she took the stage at iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas. Her performance costume consisted of a white mesh minidress with white furry "gorilla sleeves" attached, strappy black and white undies that might as well have been swimsuit bottoms and studded black ankle boots... and the black pasties. (UPDATE: The dress, we now know, is by Maria ke Fisherman and can be yours at Opening Ceremony.)

The 20-year-old singer has been using her outfits to shock for the past year (since we got over the lesser shock that was her haircut); but as Lil' Kim can tell you, stick-on nipple covers are one accessory no one will ever forget.
