Miley Cyrus in Hunger Magazine
Miley Cyrus has gone from a squeeky clean Disney tween to a punky, tongue-wagging 'semi nudist.' Her roaming foam finger and antics on that wrecking ball have the world asking big questions such as 'is Miley Cyrus a danger to women?' But her style shift also leaves us with a lorra lorra questions. Who is the brains behind the fash-over? Does she have a team of stylists brainstorming the next Miley to shock the world? Or is it all Miley?
Well in an interview with Hunger Magazine Miles has credited Marc Jacobs as the man who introduced her to high fashion, saving her from those sparkly jackets and cowboy boots. When asked how her style has evolved from her Hannah Montana days she said:
'I work a lot with Marc Jacobs. He kind of brought me into fashion like when I was 16, that was when I started being around him and just learning from him. He kind of let me inspire some of his pieces and now I feel like it’s just having the right people around you.
Something again like the ‘Wrecking Ball’ video or ‘Can’t Stop’, 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. 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.'

We thought if there was one man responsible for her fash-over it would have to be the guy who chopped off her tumbling Disney locks. But Marc and Miley are a solid fashion twosome, as Miley wore mesh Marc Jacobs to the Met Ball, is a regular on his New York front row and Marc recently featured her naked (obvs) on a t-shirt to promote skin cancer awareness.
In the interview Miley also opens up about the wrecking ball video, working with Britney and doing things to shock. As for her style she also says that she is trying to get the balance between being lady like and punk and says: 'I like having this punk feel about it even if it’s like Louboutin. You’ve got to find the right designers that know how to mix.' Miles says she likes to have fun with fashion (she did wear a giant teddy bear costume to the VMAs) as she says: 'Like fashion and everything else, it doesn’t need to be so serious. People take it too seriously, it’s supposed to be self expression and how you want people to see you.'
