Miley Cyrus’s Cutout Couture Gown Was Inspired by...The Beatles?

When Miley Cyrus performed in an empty Rose Bowl stadium this weekend, it wasn't just her gorgeous voice that held our attention—it was also her next-level gown, which, as it turns out, was inspired by another iconic musical act.

The performance was a part of Global Citizen's Global Goal: Unite For Our Future stream (you can watch it here), which saw stars like Cyrus, Shakira, Jennifer Hudson and more unite for a call to end social injustices and continue fighting against COVID-19. For the occasion, Cyrus performed a powerful rendition of The Beatles' hit song “Help!” in Pasadena, CA.

For her look, Cyrus also channeled the band's original album artwork for “Help!” with a glam-rock twist on the oversized blue shirts worn by John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. Her couture gown, made by Alexandre Vauthier, featured a thigh-high slit, ab cutout and asymmetrical sleeve, all in a sparkly teal color.

She told Vogue of the look, “I wanted it to stay vibrant and hopeful like the melody of the song. I love how this dress represents ‘Glam Rock.’ A little more [David] Bowie than The Beatles—with a nod to Dolly [Parton], whose version of ‘Help!’ I used as inspiration for my cover.”

Help us get our feet back on the ground, because we're in love with this cause and this outfit.
