Miley proves tan tights are having a moment

Tan tights were an essential in any pale Irish teen's wardrobe. They gave a great faux-glow in the days before Sally Hansen was widely available, but they also unfortunately gave your legs the startlingly uniform look of a shop-window mannequin. Awkward.

We like to think we've moved on from buying tights in a shade of "Sunkissed Glow" these days, but Miley Cyrus has us thinking we might have turned our backs too quickly!

The singer is the new face of Italian hosiery company Golden Lady, and she is looking great in the newest campaign pictures.

In a leather jacket and crop top, Miley rocks a pair of nude tights pulled right up to her waist. As any Irish girl knows, that's the ONLY way to wear tights – though it's usually under a skirt or a dress!

The Rock Your Legs campaign was shot by Miley's good pal Terry Richardson – yes the same lad who snapped her as she bared pretty much everything in a skimpy red leotard:

We must say, we prefer her when she's covered up, even if it is only in a pair of tan tights!
