Miley Cyrus can add ‘Gucci model’ to her already impressive resume, as she’s set to be the face of the new Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia Eau de Parfum.

The 28-year-old is currently known for her mullet and grungy, rock ‘n’ roll vibe. Her beauty looks have come a long way since she was a teenage Disney star…

The Hannah Montana years…

Cyrus first shot to fame as Hannah Montana when she was 13 years old. She played a normal girl with a secret life as a popstar – and when she transformed into Montana, she donned an iconic blonde wig with bangs.

We’re not entirely sure why her classmates didn’t realise Cyrus had the same face as Montana, but hey – that’s television for you.

When not in character, Cyrus was a fresh-faced teen: her brown hair was long and her make-up minimal, aside from the Noughties-favourite: frosted lipgloss.

Experimenting with her look…

Towards the end of the Noughties, Cyrus started playing around with her look. She was rarely seen without mega extensions in her hair, dying it a darker brown…

… while also going all in on black eye make-up.

Leaving Hannah Montana behind…

When Hannah Montana came to an end in 2011, Cyrus took out her extensions and opted for a more grown-up look: soft waves in her hair, and classic make-up looks including a bold red lip and big lashes.

Her rebellious stage…

Cyrus completely mixed up her music and her style when she released the album Bangerz in 2013, with singles including We Can’t Stop and Wrecking Ball.

Not only were her fashion choices more risque, Cyrus also cut her hair short and bleached it blonde…

One of the more controversial and questionable beauty decisions she made came in 2015, when she wore dreadlocks to host the VMAs.

Hollywood glam…

When Cyrus’ music moved away from hip-hop and closer to her country roots, she went back to basics: simpler make-up, and longer hair in loose curls.

After quite a hectic few years of experimental beauty, this was a very polished time for Cyrus.

A bit more rock ‘n’ roll…

In recent years, Cyrus’ style has evolved to be grungier and more rock ‘n’ roll. Her hair’s messier, her make-up looks darker and more smudged, and now she’s finally embraced her current look: the mullet.

After all, her father is Billy Ray Cyrus – one of the most famous champions of a ‘business at the front, party at the back’ mullet.
