'Wrecking Ball' Miley Cyrus isn't totally naked -- she's wearing shoes


When it comes to dressing — or rather, undressing — for performances, album covers, and music videos, Miley Cyrus certainly knows how to upstage herself.

She has an affinity for over-sized teddy bear backpacks and foam fingers and she really hates wearing pants, but in the just-released video for “Wrecking Ball,” Cyrus gives new meaning to the term “stripped-down single” when she sheds her wife beater and tighty whities to perch atop a wrecking ball in the buff.

Still, reports that she’s completely naked are, technically, not true. Stop trying to catch a glimpse of her naughty parts, look down at her feet, and read on for the details. 

Cyrus wears a pair of cherry red Doc Martens (get a pair of your own at dmusastore.com) throughout the entire Terry Richardson-directed video. Considering that the set is basically a demolition site, walking around barefoot near exposed rebar would have been a disaster waiting to happen. Though combat boots haven’t had a moment since the grunge era of Nirvana and Courtney Love — heck, even Daria is wearing high heels these days — this isn’t a “they’re my feet I can wear what I want to,” kind of moment. Miley’s loved Docs since she was a super-sweet 16-year-old also known as Hannah Montana.

Many fashionistas say that every great outfit begins — and, if Miley is the one getting dressed, apparently ends — with the shoes. Some fashionistas would walk around the Fashion Week tents naked if they had a Pilates body like Cyrus’. I bet you could even find a few fashionistas who would totally count that sledgehammer as an accessory.

Are combat boots making a comeback thanks to Miley Cyrus or are you about as likely to run out and buy a pair of Docs as you are to join a nudist construction crew? Watch the video below then head down to the comments to tell us what you think of Miley’s latest look.
