Professional twerk-star Miley Cyrus has scored positions on both Time's top 10 best and worst dressed lists thanks to her schizophrenic fashion taste.

It may not come as a surprise that 21-year-old twerking pop star Miley Cyrus made Time's 2013 Worst Dressed list. What's more surprising, perhaps, is that Miley wasn't allowed to fill each of the 10 positions with the offensive, high-leg leotards that have become her signature stage look this year.

It was of course the nude latex bikini worn while gyrating on Robin Thicke at the VMAs that clinched the top spot for Miley Ray. The fact that the furry grey leotard with teddy bear motif (worn at the start of her VMAs performance) became one of 2013's most popular Halloween costumes was probably the final nail in the coffin.



Also sitting shame-faced on the worst dressed list are Kim Kardashian, in her floral (Givenchy) curtain at the Met Ball, Anne Hathaway's nippletastic Prada Oscars dress and Justin Bieber's distasteful gas mask get-up.

But when not tongue-wagging or flaunting her bikini line, Miley Cyrus has occasionally (repeat, occasionally) been known to tone down her raucous dress sense. For that we have Miley's mentor Marc Jacobs to thank. Scoring sixth place on Time's 2013 Best Dressed is the turquoise sequinned, low-back Marc Jacobs gown that the Hoedown Throwdown singer wore to the Night of Stars event.

While we're not fully on board with Time's description of Miley as "dazzling" and "elegant", hopefully the pop star will take inspiration from the other stylish celebrities on the list topped by Jennifer Lawrence in her Dior Oscars dress.

Ultra stylish Solange Knowles, who sits pretty at number 10, could be the perfect reference point for Cyrus, who turns out is also a fan of similar quirky designers such as Markus Lupfer. Solange just needs to teach Miley how to wear more of the designer on her body.
