Did Miley go too far even for the person behind her radical image overhaul with this one now iconic look?

For a star widely criticised for her outrageously sexual on-screen antics and lapse attitude towards (alleged) public drug taking, her parents are pretty relaxed.

This is probably because, for the most part, they understand the publicity game she plays. Her father is the legendary country-pop legend Billy Ray Cyrus.

"Of course I'll always be here for Miley. Can't wait to see her when she gets home," he told Entertainment Tonight after witnessing his daughter in that MTV Robin Thicke grind-a-thon he couldn’t un-see, even if he wanted to.

"She's still my little girl and I'm still her dad regardless how this circus we call show business plays out. I love her unconditionally and that will never change."

And her mother Letitia "Tish" Jean Cyrus has not only produced five of Miley’s films, but is also kind of behind this whole re-brand anyway as her manager.

But there is one now iconic outfit that reddens her with parental rage. And it’s this:

"That’s the only one I really didn’t like," Tish told E! News, referring to the outfit her 21-year-old daughter wore to the iHeartRadioMusic Festival in Vegas in September: a white, gorilla-esque string top and fluffy sleeves, complete with tiny black nipple pasties that left her bare breasts on full display.

"I was there for that," Miley’s 26-year-old sister, Brandi Cyrus, added, saying "and there was some tension."

"That’s the only time ever," Tish said. "Now Miley’s 21, so, you know," she said laughing.

The only time? We wonder what Tish would make of photographs that showed Miley Cyrus posing with former pimp turned hip-hop personality Bishop Don Juan at Greystone Manor in West Hollywood.

Juan was a pimp until he found God in the 80s and opened the Magic World Christian Kingdom Church of the Royal Family in Chicago.


Meanwhile, famous faces from David Jason to Kate Winslet have waded in on the great Cyrus debate lately.

Last week, the Touch of Frost star described her as an example of the eroding standards of modern society.

"She has done it to break the mould," he told The Sun on Sunday. "I can understand why, but we have given her the oxygen of publicity and encouraged it, so young girls will think it is the right way to attract men. We've lost our standards.

"Once upon a time if you said this or did that, you'd be off the air. They wouldn't dare show it.

"It slowly drip feeds, erodes standards of politeness, manners and morality," he continued.

"It just drips and it takes us further and further down, and instead of inspiring us to look up, we are all going down."

"You hear horror stories where you think, 'God, who’s looking after these people and why does it seem like they’re losing their way?'" Winslet similarly told Psychologies magazine. Read more on that story here .
