And you thought Miley couldn't find more ways to surprise you.
TIME's Best-Dressed and Worst-Dressed lists are just two of the magazine's 54 "Top 10" rolled out today for the end of 2013. The number one pick for best-dressed went to the lovely Jennifer Lawrence, for the gorgeous strapless Dior gown she wore when accepting her first Oscar earlier this year.
The number one worst-dressed star of the year, in turn, recognizes another memorable stage moment: Miley's nude bikini-and-shorts combo at the MTV VMAs. The two-piece, hidden under a bizarre furry-faced onesie, made Britney Spears' flesh-toned two-piece outfit at the 2000 VMAs look tame, especially when accessorized with red lipstick, a suggestively-placed foam finger and a perpetually outstretched tongue.
But Miley came close to redeeming herself months later at FGI's 30th Annual Night Of Stars Gala, where she presented the Superstar Award to Marc Jacobs wearing a slinky aqua Marc Jacobs gown. And she looked, much to everyone's surprise, pretty darn classy.
In fact, Miley wore several surprisingly inoffensive outfits this year. But somehow we doubt anyone will remember them with the VMAs still in their memories...
... and worst:
