She looks covered up and modest here, but in 2008, Miley caused a stir by wearing far less.
In April, she raised more than a few eyebrows when she posed for Vanity Fair wearing nothing more than a blanket, red lipstick and a sultry stare. "I think it's really artsy. It wasn't in a skanky way," she told Vanity Fair at the time of the shoot. "Annie [Leibovitz] took, like, a beautiful shot, and I thought that was really cool." But when the photos were released, she changed her tune a bit, telling Billboard, "I was embarrassed but also it's like, every career thing that I do can't be perfect, and sometimes my decisions are wrong. I think that just makes me even more relatable."
And throughout the year, photos of the teenager in various states of undress, including wearing a wet T-shirt in the shower and showing off a lime green bra, popped up online. Some were hacked from her phone (allegedly taken for boyfriend Nick Jonas), while others were grabbed from friends' MySpace pages. All were utterly embarrassing.
