See how the star’s style has changed during her rise to fame…

Miley Cyrus is Marie Claire’s January cover star. In celebration, we chart her ever-changing style.

Born Destiny Hope Cyrus, the American singer has changed her look drastically since those early Hannah Montana days, and we’ve got all her most memorable style moments so far.

The 23-year-old former child star burst onto the Disney scene in 2006, quickly becoming a seriously successful female solo artist – and one of America’s most controversial pop stars. Sharing a stage with the likes of Madonna, Miley has long been championing gender fluidity, and has become quite the role model as a result.

When it comes to style – just like her music – Miley isn’t afraid of pushing the boundaries. Working with a team of dedicated designers, she is constantly evolving her look, regularly slipping into some seriously statement stage outfits.

Off-stage, Miley is every bit as brave when it comes to fashion. From impossibly high flatform shoes to ultra-short hemlines, there seems to be no trend Miley won’t try.

Meanwhile, on the red carpet, Miley has traded in those pretty prom dresses. Now, we’re seeing a more grown-up wardrobe: most notably that Alexander Wang floor-grazing, metallic, backless gown to attend the iconic MET Ball.

With so many looks over the years, we’ve rounded up some of the most memorable.
