Meeting the parents is a big step in any relationship — and takes all the outfit-planning advice one can muster. Here, we examine Miley Cyrus' choices for the big meeting with the famous kin of her new fling.
Cyrus and Patrick Schwarzenegger have been spending a lot of time together since they made a very public debut at Patrick's alma mater. They've canoodled in photo booths and stepped out for a casual date night. Meeting the fam for the holidays is a logical next step, so Miley was off to Idaho to cozy up to the Schwarzeneggers for Christmas.
The singer had already gotten the thumbs up from the Kennedy side of Patrick's family tree. Next up was secuting Papa Arnold's approval over a casual breakfast with friends. For the low-key affair, Miley went for quirky pieces and a feminine color palette: a faux-fur pink coat, leopard-print turtleneck of the same hue, vintage Chanel handbag, and reliable Doc Martens to avoid any embarrassing slips on the icy streets. The look lets her personality shine through while hitting just charming enough notes. If all the smiling photos are any indication, the face time seems to have been a success. Ahead, see how you can copy Miley's not-so-standard, but still A-plus, meet-the-parents ensemble.
