Miley Cyrus has turned grungy wet-look lengths into something of a signature this year. After stepping out at Saint Laurent’s Malibu Beach presentation in June with her blonde locks seemingly fresh from a saltwater rinse, Cyrus has regularly shaken out a mane of dampened hair, most recently for an emotional performance at the VMAs, in the music video for her latest single, “Slide Away,” and last night, at Tom Ford’s Spring/Summer 2020 show.
For the front row—found at a disused platform of the Bowery stop on the J/Z line—Cyrus honored a 1999-era Pamela Anderson, topping her piece-y waves with a fuzzy black brimmed hat worn at an angle just jaunty enough to reveal her cut of fringe. Black aviators, a nude lip, and a plunging neckline punctuated by a duet of chains finished the fall-ready moment, which felt like a hard lean into Cyrus’s emerging identity as a pop start with a penchant for rock and roll. Because who says pool-dipped hair is an undertaking reserved for summertime styling?
