Miley Cyrus in Marc Jacobs at the Met Ball earlier this year
Miley Cyrus has credited Marc Jacobs with introducing her to fashion. In an interview with HungerTV, the Wrecking Ball singer said: “I work a lot with Marc Jacobs. He kind of brought me into fashion when I was 16, that was when I started being around him and learning from him.”
The singer, now arguably more famous for twerking and sticking out her tongue than her music, also said: “He kind of let me inspire some of his pieces,” although, regrettably, she doesn’t specify which.
Favouring a modern punk aesthetic - tight mesh crop tops and heavily ripped denim are Miley staples (not forgetting the undercut) – the singer says her look “has to be sexy and strong… I feel like Marc does that so well.”
“There’s definitely something amazing about being so ladylike yet being so punk and that’s kind of what I am, even if I wear things that aren’t,” Miley continued.
Could there be a Miley/Marc collaboration in the future? With Marc Jacobs leaving his post at Louis Vuitton to focus on his own mainline collection, a Miley Cyrus inspired collection would certainly get everyone talking.
