Miley Cyrus Before Bra Tops And Short Hair (PHOTO)

Believe it or not, this is the midriff bearing popstar only a few years ago.

The name Miley Cyrus used to be synonymous with phrases like Disney star, teenybopper icon and wholesome role model. How things have changed: Now the infamous actress is known for midriff-baring styles, tattoos and subversive ensembles. The 20-year-old performer rose to fame as Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel, but has since shed her girl-next-door image in favor of something a little more controversial. Although Cyrus has received a lot of attention for her recent bad girl makeover, she has accomplished a great deal in her short career. Miley has been nominated for a Golden Globe, she has been ranked on the Forbes' Celebrity 100 list and she bagged one of the hottest men in Hollywood (she is engaged to actor Liam Hemsworth).

In this 2006 photograph (whoa, it really seems like this was taken just yesterday), we see Miley looking sweet as ever at the world premiere of "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest." The then 14-year-old star was spotted wearing a red embellished dress (we can't help but take note of how demure she looks). Cyrus paired her ladylike frock with a pair of brown leather boots and a cute side pony. We also love her silver cuff -- it appears as though this fashionista was ahead of her time!
