Miley Cyrus's NSFW VMAs Outfits Almost Make Us Forget That 2013 Debacle

Almost.

Miley Cyrus has no shame in her style game, and we love her for it. For the 2015 MTV Video Music Awards, we were expecting to be shocked. And in true Miley form, she did not disappoint. With these looks seared into our memories, there's no doubt that her infamous performance with Robin Thicke is long forgotten.

Here, in order, we've ranked her looks -- all designed by Jeremy Scott, except for the Atelier Versace look she arrived in -- from the statement making to the downright crazy. Scott is known for pushing the envelope when it comes to fashion (McDonald's French Fry purses on the runway are his standard fare), and his looks for Katy Perry and Madonna in the past have had us looking twice. But this was some next-level style. Shield your eyes, folks. 

  • Miley arrived in this suspenders-and-chandelier number by Versace. We thought that would be the most outrageous. We were wrong.
