There's a method to the madness of Miley Cyrus when she decides what she wants to wear to an awards show.
And it was business as usual last night at the AMAs.
2013 American Music Awards Red Carpet
The 21-year-old arrived to the big event channeling her androgynous side with a sexy two-piece Versace suit. Before heading into the big show, the "Wrecking Ball" singer spotted her older sister Brandi Cyrus, 26, on the red carpet and ran over. Brandi was there as a reporter covering the event alongside Life & Style.
When she asked her little sis why she chose to wear the Versace number, Miley responded, "Because I think eeryone uses award shows sometimes as pageants rather than showing up and just being, so I think it's important for women to see women who don't show up in gowns every time and a full face."
Was Miley Cyrus' AMAs Performance More Controversial Than the VMAs?
She added, "It's important for girls to see sexuality differently, so that's why I choose what I wear."
Hours later, Miley traded in her suit for a more revealing number -- a kitten bikini that showed off a lot of leg during her closing performance.
