The hottest celebrity topic of the moment is Miley Cyrus’ tendentious actions at the VMAs, and the belief that she twerks her way through life. Days after the VMAs, Miley released her new song ‘Wrecking Ball’, a beautifully written and touching song. Which brings me to point out two different types of people…
There are those who were curious about how the ‘Hannah Montana’ star has changed from Disney princess to headline making, booty twerking queen, and watch the video and realise that although the VMAs were too over the top, her music video for ‘Wrecking Ball’ was actually a well thought and profound depiction of the lyrics in the song.
Then there are those who completely judge her actions as immature, unsophisticated and filthy. Although both people have a valid point, Miley has acted so for a purpose… Both types of people are getting her attention. Word of mouth proves to be the most powerful form of promotion, and Miley is getting exactly what she wanted.
The moral of this was that the concept can be similarly represented in fashion, also.
You don’t have to twerk or act differently for your style to be appreciated. You don’t have to be something that you’re not in order for people to appreciate you and what you embody as your values and characteristics.
I’ve said it before, and I will forever repeat it; Individuality is key to making fashion work for you. Be adventurous with your outfits, try a colour that you normally wouldn’t wear. Find something new that works for you and utilise it to the best of your ability.
Respect yourself, your body and your morals, because at the end of the day, thats all you have. Make sure that your actions and the way you comport yourself only reflect the good sides of you, even if you do have skeletons in your closet.
Yes, Be Controversial; but don’t disrespect yourself to prove your controversiality.
