15 Celebrities Who Wear Underwear as Outerwear—Miley & More


Celebrities have been trudging into underwear-as-outerwear territory more and more as of late, but this style is nothing new. Sometimes they get it right, and sometimes they don’t. And everyone seems to disagree as to which is which, so we hope the celebs are having fun with it!

1. Beyoncé Knowles


Beyoncé is an example of someone who can get it right. She’ll pull this look out almost exclusively on stage, but it’s always tasteful and you can see the thought and effort behind each attempt.

2. Kim Kardashian


We did an article a while back on some of Kim’s fashion fails, and the above outfit was featured there.


A better underwear-as-outerwear look on the most famous Kardashian sister was this one, which she wore out clubbing. Context, kiddies. It can make or break your outfits.

3. Katy Perry


Another pop singer who wears bejeweled bras on stage. For a stage look, it’s kind of fun, and definitely goes along with Katy’s playful child-like public image.

4. Rihanna


Rihanna is a big champion of underwear-as-outerwear. Sometimes she looks great, and other times she just looks cold.

5. Miley Cyrus


Miley has been wearing mostly underwear as a habit as of late. We actually like the look she wore on Letterman, with the red heels and skyscraper-printed skirt. The colors go great with her hair. The rest of the looks…maybe not so much. But Miley has said she doesn’t do it to look good or sexy, which you have to have some respect for, I think. Well, you don’t have to, but it’s an uncommon motivator for how celebrities dress nowadays. And for most people.

6. Justin Bieber


Wearing underwear as outerwear isn’t only for the ladies. The Biebs has been seen showing his boxers (boxer-briefs?) from time to time. Not particularly new or interesting, but it’s something. I guess the Segway adds something? Still, he could do much better.


Thank you, Versace, for being a shining beacon of enlightenment.

7. Lindsay Lohan


Ms. Lohan wore some sort of corset over her shirt one day. Not really sure why. The color makes it seem like some kind of low-cut bib or something. Emphasis on the something. Too drab.
