Hope y'all have been stocking up on some killer lingerie because underwear-as-outwear has officially become a thing. Whether it's bra over a tee (like Iggy Azalea in her "Fancy" music video, above), dress, or (gasp!) jacket, no article of clothing is safe from a total undergarment takeover. Don't believe us? Well, we gathered some pretty solid evidence that the resurgence of this trend is in full force. Disclaimer: This isn't a full timeline of every known bra-over-shirt occurrence, but a brief look back at this trend's biggest pop culture/fashion moments in recent history. Also, corsets don't count. Onward!
Does Miley Cyrus get more hours per day than everyone else? How else could she manage to be on her Bangerz Tour, act as the face of Marc Jacobs, and cover magazines practically every month? Her latest cover is a big one—Elle's Women in Music issue. Unlike her most recent cover—for W, where she was wearing a whole lotta nothing—for Elle, Miley has on a sequined jumpsuit from Marc Jacobs' Fall 2014 collection.
What Miley gained in clothing she lost in accessories—while her W cover featured baubles on baubles and bling on bling, here she only has on two bracelets and one ring. Her makeup is similarly just as low-key, with her strong brows (welcome back, bbs!) standing in stark contrast to her platinum pixie.

Hold on to your ten-gallon hats and brace yourselves for five more months of Miley Cyrus' stadium spectacle because everyone's favorite wrecking ball just kicked off her Bangerz Tour last Friday night (Feb. 14) in Vancouver, Canada, and will barrel on through North America and Europe until at least mid-June! The platinum-pixied pop star treated British Columbia to a flying hotdog, furry backup dancers, a 17-song setlist—riddled with hits from her current album, old favorites from her earlier day, plus a few covers—and a whopping nine performance outfits courtesy of her laundry list of designer BFFs.
This year at NYFW the clothes seemed to take a backseat to nearly everything else. Not that there wasn’t anything interesting being shown on the runway—there was just a lot going on: the polar vortex, the longer-than-ever trek from show to show, the Instagram bait sets at Marc Jacobs, where a layer of gray clouds canopied the audience, and Opening Ceremony, where Belgium chocolate dripped from the walls in sync with L-VIS 1990’s live soundtrack. Yet the biggest non-sartorial talking point was the models who wore them. Designers put more energy than ever into casting this year, which made for a lot more surprises throughout the week.
KENDALL JENNER AT MARC JACOBS

Marc Jacobs has an eye for budding young stars. He helped put Miley Cyrus on the fashion industry’s radar early last year when he sat her front row at his Fall '13 show, dressed in a head-to-toe look from the then-current season, and recently tapped her for his Spring ads. So the designer’s decision to cast Kendall Jenner must mean that he sees potential in the reality TV star-turned-model. Not to mention the surprise of seeing her with bleached brows, a sleek bob, and in a sheer top. PR gold.

That's all, folks. After a week of fashion shows, new collections, and celebrities, New York Fashion Week is officially over. Of course, now we just direct our attention to other cities like London, Paris, and Milan. Since it's neither seven days, nor over until it hits another three cities, I vote we just change it all to International Fashion Month. All those in favor say "aye."

We already heard that The Blonds would be designing some of the outfits for Miley Cyrus on her Bangerz Tour, but, the "Wrecking Ball" singer just revealed they're not the only ones. Yep, Miles has recruited the likes of Jeremy Scott and Marc Jacobs to outfit her on tour. Being tight with designers certainly has its perks, eh?
Snag this tee from Marc Jacobs!

On Tuesday, Miley Cyrus tweeted a photo of a marriage equality tee by her BFF/current employer, Marc Jacobs. Made in 2009, Miley was one of the few lucky ones who snagged the limited-edition shirt, which shows a blonde, same-sex couple in black dresses alongside their pixie-coifed kid. The bad news: That particular shirt sold out a LONG time ago. Jacobs only printed about 200 of them and a quick search on eBay yielded zero results. *sigh* The good news: We found a legitimate replica reprint with only one tiny difference.

Miley Cyrus, never one to shy away from making a statement, decided to wear her
heart opinion on her sleeves today in a pro same-sex marriage Marc by Marc Jacobs T-shirt. The top depicts a presumably lesbian couple in black dresses with their child in matching threads and reads, "I pay my taxes, I want my rights." Wanna know how we know for sure that it's Miley (besides the fact that she posted the pic on her Twitter #tongue)? The tell-tale tat on her left forearm. But mostly because #tongue.
