Jackets as dresses? It’s been done since immemorial (also just recently — check out Rihanna), but wearing a jacket as a dress is still considered very risqué.
Miley Cyrus made headlines and probably angered some conservative groups with her outfit at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards on May 20. She wore a Jean Paul Gaultier jacket as a dress and Christian Louboutin heels.

This isn’t one of Miley Cyrus’ best looks, as that hair is a little bit too big, and that double-breasted jacket needs to be tailored.
But her makeup and her Pilates-toned body are very much on point. When else is Miley going to wear something like this but during the prime of her youth, right?

We still think moving around in Miley’s Jean Paul Gaultier jacket/dress would be uncomfortable, seeing how it’s so short. Our favorite version of the tux dress remains to be this one from Rachel Zoe:
