BACK TO SLIDE

After leaving Disney, she continued to pursue her passions of acting and singing. She starred in "The Last Song" alongside now fiance Liam Hemsworth. Cyrus also released a slew of albums which included chart-topping songs like "Party In The U.S.A." and "Wrecking Ball."

There's no denying that Cyrus ditched her wholesome image after "Hannah Montana," and with that came a drastic change in her style. The colorful, sequined dresses perfect for the teen icon's bubbly image were replaced with edgier, skin-baring looks on the red carpet.

Figure-hugging gowns -- like the long-sleeved, nearly naked Marc Jacobs gown she wore to the 2013 Met Gala -- have been a staple for Cyrus. The brunette beauty also isn't afraid to get risky in sheer ensembles -- she recently hit the iHeartRadio Music Festival red carpet in a see-through look.
