Miley Cyrus

For Miley Cyrus, 2013 really was the best of times and the worst of times.

At least, that's according to Time magazine, which just gave the 21-year-old a spot on its 2013 best dressed and worst dressed lists.

Unsurprisingly, it was a two of her most buzzed about looks in the past 12 months that led to the singer's appearance on each list. The first—the racy nude latex bikini she wore for her infamous MTV Video Music Awards performance—was, according to the glossy, the number one worst outfit of the year, serving no other "stylistic purpose apart from showing a lot of skin."

Although, we're not sure Miley, who was the 2013's queen of the crop top and booty-baring bottoms (who could forget the super high-cut bikini bottoms she wore during her recent American Music Awards performance?) would actually mind the magazine's less-than-flattering description of her two-piece.

But it was her ability to flip flop from sassy to classy when the occasion called for it that secured the "Wrecking Ball" crooner's spot on Time's best dressed roundup. The publication hailed Cyrus for the glamorous green Marc Jacobs gown she wore to the 2013 FGI Night of Stars gala back in October—as well as her decision to ditch her tongue-wagging, foam finger-waving ways for the occasion.

But whether you love or hate her style, there's no doubt the provocative dresser knows how to turn heads. And though there's only a few weeks left to the year, we wouldn't be surprised if she turned out a couple more headline-making looks—like the penis-adorned leotard she wore in a recent Christmas video—before we say goodbye to 2013.
