In the past year, Miley Cyrus has made some interesting (to put it nicely) style choices. And I say that as one of the few people who actually had high hopes for her newly acquired edgy style. I mean, her nude-and-black mesh dress at this year’s punk-themed Met Gala? Flawless. But then, she broke out a latex bikini at the MTV Music Video Awards. And after that it was a parade of ill-fitting onesies, booty shorts, and grills.
And just when she had about lost me, she took to the Fashion Group International’s 30th-annual Night of Stars in a backless emerald gown. It was jaw-dropping – and I mean that not in a her-performance-with-Robin-Thick way, but a good one.
What’s not surprising is that her two best looks (well, at least in my book) had something very important in common – their designer. Both the mesh number and green dress were designed by Marc Jacobs, and today, it’s been confirmed that the “Wrecking Ball” singer is the new face of the label. Not bad for her first high-fashion campaign.
But unfortunately for Marc and Miley, not everyone was thrilled with the pairing. According to Jacobs, the label’s in-house photographer refused to shoot the star. Even without his go-to photog, however, the angsty ads are generating a lot of positive buzz, which we can only hope will lead to more of Miley in Marc Jacobs on the red carpet. Fingers crossed.
