Closing the 2013 American Music Awards with her performance of “Wrecking Ball”, Miley Cyrus was no less flashy on stage than at the MTV VMAs in September, but gathered a lot more fashion good-will with her red carpet outfit. The Los Angeles ceremony showed Miley a bit more demure in front of the paparazzi, but she still donned a sexy cut leotard during her performance.

Accompanied on the red carpet by her father, Billy Ray Cyrus, Miley made the best dressed list with a white Versus Versace suit. The 21 year old still showed her sexy side by wearing it without a top and even accessorized with a high fashion accent, the classic Versace gold safety pins.

Making it to the best dressed list was a big get for Miley Cyrus, especially after the criticism sparked by her skimpy outfit and sexy performance at this year’s MTV Video Music Awards, alongside Robin Thicke. Also responsible for the positive reactions were Miley’s Saint Laurent s shoes and Lorraine Schwartz earrings chosen for her red carped appearance at the 2013 American Music Awards.

After going for a sexy and stylish look on the red carpet, Miley showed up on stage at the end of the ceremony to perform her hit “Wrecking Ball” wearing a fun outfit, matching the background visuals. Her Markus Lupfer leotard showcased her body and was accessorized with huge lucite bracelets and similar earrings.

Miley Cyrus’ stage outfit at the 2013 American Music Awards featured a cute kitty print on a lilac background, coming off as less provocative and more fun than her previous teddy bear leotard, worn at this year’s VMAs.

Part of the praise Miley gathered for her red carpet and stage looks at the American Music Awards can also be traced back to her makeup choices. Whether on stage or on the red carpet, Miley Cyrus decided to highlight her natural beauty by sticking to nude lips and adding plenty of black eyeliner. Her bold brows are perfectly on trend and her slicked and side swept hair also added to her gorgeous looks.
