Art or trash?

Art or trash?

A giant dildo, a vibrator given by a fan and an "ultimate party hat" with an iPod player stuck to it along with illicit substances.

Miley Cyrus has turned these items into "art" and got them on the New York Fashion Week runway show.

These items have joined other similarly colourful, bizarre structures put together by Cyrus that are on display at V magazine's offices' gallery in New York City since yesterday.

But first, some pieces from her art collection called Dirty Hippie, made its debut at US fashion designer Jeremy Scott's New York Fashion Week show on Wednesday.

In front of guests such as comedienne Whoopi Goldberg, rapper 2 Chainz and actress Bella Thorne, models strutted the runway decked out in Scott's vibrant Spring/Summer 2015 collection and Cyrus' handmade jewellery and headpieces.

The accessories were made of items that Cyrus, 21, had received from fans during her Bangerz tour, purchased from supermarkets or from airports.

Leis, fake flowers, baubles, car air fresheners - you will see them all.

The display of creations is truly baffling.

They resemble Polly Pocket items once famous among girls in the past - just a whole lot weirder and definitely NSFK (Not Safe For Kids).

Oh, and definitely not art.

This is the latest in a string of surprising antics from the US singer.

Cyrus recently made headlines for her ice cream nipple pasties at designer Alexander Wang's top-secret New York Fashion Week party, shortly after she revealed her campaign for homeless youth in Los Angeles during this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

For the controversial young star, being creative helps her cope with her tumultuous year.

"At the beginning of this year, I hated 2014 because everything that could go wrong kept going wrong," she told V Magazine.

"Being in the hospital, my dog dying... So, that's how I started making art. I had a bunch of... junk and s***, and so instead of letting it be junk and s***, I turned it into something that made me happy."
