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.
