Miley Cyrus first started transitioning into a more adult image to shed the “innocent” teen idol rep she’d earned from starring in Hannah Montana back in 2008, and although she’s no Olsen twin, it seems like men across the globe were excited when she hit the big 1-8 last November. Not only did she grace FHM’s “100 Sexiest Women in the World” list—at number 89, if you’re curious—she was number 64 on Maxim’s “Hot 100” in April.
Her days of switching from girl-next-door to rock star on the Disney Channel are over, but Miley’s personal life has been just as hectic. There were her breakups with Joe Jonas, Justin Gaston, and Liam Hemsworth, which would probably be enough to cause a lil’ heartbreak for any girl. In 2010, TMZ released a video of a then-16-year-old Miley giving The Last Song’s producer a lap dance at the film’s wrap party. Her parents split and decided to divorce but then got back together after all, and let’s not forget the whole bong incident.
Born as Destiny Hope Cyrus, Miley’s parents gave her the nickname Smiley as an infant because she smiled so often. Smiley was eventually shortened to Miley, and voila! a star was born. (Probably didn’t hurt that Dad was country sensation. Hey, mullets used to be cool!) Still looking “Smiley” as ever, Miley is sweet and “innocent” in these folding Ran Ban sunglasses, a creative take on traditional Wayfarers.
