Miley Cyrus on the VMAs Red Carpet: A Study in Near-Nakedness

There's just so much to see.

Celebrities have been doing the naked dress thing (opens in new tab) since the dawn of time (or at least the internet). But Miley Cyrus has, I think, just topped them all. In an Atelier Versace-designed look that can only be described as a pair of gold overalls with a bejeweled loincloth attached, she's throwing down the nudity gauntlet.

And to great effect. (And little surprise.) She looks pretty damn impressive—it's like she's wearing nothing but confidence and tattoo ink.

It should be noted that there appears to be some kind of nude thong situation under that sparkly skirt, so she's not *totally* exposed.

And, of course, there was much hair swinging to celebrate.
