He kind of let me inspire some of his pieces and now I feel like its just having the right people around you”.

Nov 2013: Miley Compares 'Wrecking Ball' To Marc's Collections

“There are parts of it that of course are for a mature audience but there’s something kind of immature about it because the party’s so ridiculous, it always has to have a balance and a ying yang to it," she said. "That’s the same as ‘Wrecking Ball’. It has to be sexy and strong and that’s what I feel like with fashion, I feel like Marc does that so well.”

Jan 2014: Miley Is Unveiled As The New Marc Jacobs Face

8th Jan 2014, Marc Jacobs reveals that Miley is the new face of his SS14 campaign. Shot by fashion photographer David Sims, Miley is sat on a sandy beach with two other models, Natalie Westling and Esmerelda Seay Reynolds - and looks ridiculously cool. Talk about a match made in heaven!

This week it was revealed that Miley Cyrus is the new face of Marc Jacobs's Spring Summer 2014 campaign. We admit to initally being rather surprised at the partnership considering Miley is a pop star known for her near-naked twerking while Marc Jacobs is a top-notch designer who names the likes of Sofia Coppola as muses. But then we had a look back through the fashion archives and turns out, this is one love-in that was a long time coming.

You'll remember it wasn't so long ago that Miley revealed Marc is her 'fashion mentor'. And let's not forget the star has been spotted wearing his designs on more than one occasion, most notably at the punk-themed Met Ball. And not only does MJ influence Miley's style but apparently he has inspires her music videos too.

Of course, this isn't the first time Miley has posed for Marc. The songstress got naked for his 'Protect The Skin You're In' T-shirt campaign was aimed at raising awareness and funds for melanoma research. And ever since, Ms Cyrus has been stripping down to her undies.

So let's take a look back at where this blossoming fashion friendship began. In the gallery above, you'll find the key moments throughout the MJ x MC love-in...
