Christmas came early at last night's KIIS FM Jingle Ball when both Selena Gomez and Miley Cyrus performed in holiday-inspired costumes that were anything but family-friendly. Selena vamped it up in a shiny red leotard covered with a sexy lace overlay, black combat boots, a black choker, and – to complete the full-on goth look – black lipstick. Miley continued her year's parade of crop tops with a red sequined option with furry white cuffs and matching bottoms. And, although most singers don't typically perform with their purses still slung on their shoulders, Miley couldn't help but bring her furry chain-strap Chanel bag up on stage with her. And why not? The strap perfectly matched those on her boots!
