As much as MTV likes to be the brand of youth, it's also historically been averse to connecting itself to anything with a whiff of age...until last night, that is. Fresh from her profile on Refinery29, the style iconoclast we know and love as Baddie Winkle made her way to Los Angeles for the VMAs this weekend. She was invited by the host herself, Miley Cyrus. The epic first meeting of this match made in Technicolor heaven took place during rehearsals on Saturday night, and was, of course, well documented.
"You make me feel underdressed," Cyrus told Winkle, the 87-year-old Internet star, in a video on Instagram. "I'm usually underdressed. You know that."
"I watch you all the time," Winkle agreed.
"Me and Baddie actually have very similar taste," Cyrus added, stating the obvious. "We probably shop at a lot of the same stores."
"We probably do!" Winkle said, though in a second video she reaffirmed her opposition to pasties. Even so, we fully anticipate some kind of twinning moment during the show tonight.
