Miley Cyrus says she learned everything she knows about fashion from Marc Jacobs

As controversial as her image currently is, Miley Cyrus isn't messing around when it comes to fashion and style.

By Glamour Magazine Oct 9, 2013 6:51PM

Miley Cyrus, (Bruce Glikas/FilmMagic/Getty Images)Believe it or not, Cyrus credits the evolution of her post-Hannah Montana look to none other than Marc Jacobs.

"I work a lot with Marc Jacobs," she tells Hunger TV. "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."

In fact, Cyrus draws an analogy between Jacobs' independent spirit and her controversial "Wrecking Ball" music video.

"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," she explains.
"It has to be sexy and strong and that's what I feel like with fashion; I feel like Marc does that so well."

As for juxtaposing soft and sweet against licking machinery, Cyrus says that people shouldn't take things so literally—or seriously.

"There's definitely something amazing about being so ladylike yet being so punk and that's kind of more of what I am, even if I'm wearing things that aren't," she 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."

Guess what other designers Cyrus has recently worked with: the Opening Ceremony crew at Kenzo!

"When I was in Paris working with Kenzo, that's something that they do really well there too," 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.
"I read that 80 percent of what people think about you is made off the first 10 seconds they meet you and you look at someone and you say, 'are they competent, are they this, are they that?'" she says. "And for me if that's what people are looking at for the first 30 seconds they see me, they're going to think they know who I am—so I want you to take in everything and I want everything to be representing who I am."

    11 style rules to break right now

    You already know wearing white after Labor Day is cool. But menswear is reinventing itself rapidly, leaving some long-held mandates by the wayside, not to mention a bunch of men with a lot of questions. Sure, some style laws are truly inviolable. Showing a quarter-inch of cuff will always be crucial, but with designers and dandies flaunting so many former taboos it's hard to tell what's in play these days.
