Miley Cyrus recently discussed her edgy cover for Elle UK.
The cover of the magazine finds the singer striking a very provocative pose. Cyrus can be seen with her hands behind her head with very little covering her chest.
To keep people talking, she recently tweeted an alternative cover which finds the former Hannah Montana star without a shirt. The June issue of Elle marks her first major cover shoot in the UK.
When asked why she decided to go with an “edgy” look for the cover, the 20-year-old singer admitted that the magazine’s approach to fashion and beauty is more in tune with her own.
She explained in a behind-the-scenes video:
“ELLE UK is really cool and it is a little different. I think it shows a different side of style that I feel is really me. It’s a bit punk and a little more edgy. It’s really cool to be able to shoot this as I haven’t had the chance to do much for the UK like this yet. ELLE is a really cool magazine and my first big cover.”
In addition to discussing her engagement and Justin Bieber, the singer modeled outfits designed by Saint Laurent, Fendi, Emilio Pucci, and Simone Rocha. The spread is compromised of a whopping 10 pages.
Although several photographs were taken of the Miley Cyrus for the spread and the cover, only a select few bad the cut. She said that choosing which ones would be featured was not unlike selecting tracks for an album.
“It’s like there’s so many options and outfits and pictures, you feel like, ‘How do I know this is the one I’m really wanting?’ I’m glad I don’t have to edit through the pictures,” she said.
