I’m actually too old to have seriously been into Hannah Montana, so Miley, to me, has always been a starlet who I couldn’t really understand or connect with. Her music seemed disposable and goofy and her look was a bit too sanitised and cookie cutter.
But then last August, she cut her hair and amped up the ‘interesting factor’ by about 100%. Lately, I’ve found myself half-baffled, half-amazed by her red carpet choices, which is actually a good thing. The girl fascinates me - she’s anything but boring!
I think she’s navigated her post-Disney, ‘I’m not a girl, not yet a woman’ era like a pro and is definitely the anti-Lilo. Of course, she gets up to nonsense and possibly isn’t the best role model, but at least there aren’t any arrests or rehab stints. She seems to be doing her ‘finding herself’ in the least destructive way possible. I love that she’s just having fun - she’s young, pretty, rich and is owning it.
So let’s take a look at my top Miley faves:
Super chic at the Marchesa show.
Sleek and sexy at 2012 VH1 Divas.
Oh, these ol’ flat abs? Sizzling at the iHeart Radio Music Festival.
Looking confusingly amazing at last night’s Billboard Music Awards.
Fully committing to the Punk theme at last week’s Met Gala.
Solange for Complex magazine.
[MY FAVOURITE THING TODAY] Chrisette Michele is looking super duper fly.
[MY FAVOURITE THING TODAY] Solange Knowles. Railroading.
[MAG FAB] Zoe Kravitz, who is on the cover of Nylon magazine alongside Bella Heathcote and Juno Temple, doesn’t really care about being a polished Hollywood princess… As if we couldn’t have guessed, right?
Her take on her personal style:
I feel like everyone thinks that everyone should look the same - clean cut. If I go to a party and my hair’s messy and my shirt’s ripped or whatever, it’s like, ‘She’s a crackhead.’ I’m like, ‘Do I have to look like a fucking perfect Barbie doll?’ The cool thing about fashion is that if you do it right, it’s an art form and it’s a way to express yourself.
And now from her interview with Time Out New York:
I’m humbled and excited about [the attention I get from the fashion fraternity], but I’m not trying to be a huge designer or a big model. I’ve been clear I just want to express myself. I’m really appreciative for the love and respect [from the fashion community], but I just want to do the fun shit. I’m a lot more interested in style than fashion—style is what makes us who we are.
Style icon Solange did a great interview with the London Evening Standard. Here’s what she has to say about the sound on her unreleased new - as yet unnamed - album:
‘There’s a lot of sexual vibes on [my new album]. I think I just finally started having good sex. This woman came up to me the other day and said, “You know, I think people dress a lot better when they’re in love with themselves, with other people, or with where their life is.”?’
Style icon Solange did a great interview with the London Evening Standard. Here’s what she has to say about working on her new album without a label’s backing:
‘I don’t think there’s a need [to be signed to a label] if you are able to fund [an album] yourself and have a strong sense of development as an artist. It means you aren’t dependent on some A&R dude to position you with writers or producers or figure out your next direction. Major labels act as banks in terms of how they produce and release your album. No major label is really good or bad, they just 100 per cent operate as a business, which makes sense… no hard feelings.’

“Even as I’m navigating through this journey of getting so much love from the fashion world, I’m kind of still tiptoeing around, checking things out. I haven’t just fully dived into the scene, because it’s kind of a scary world. I’ve seen my mother and sister produce their line [House of Deréon] and know how much work and politics goes into it. So it’s not something that I just want to jump into. I always say, in terms of putting products out there, I really don’t feel like there’s a purpose unless you feel like there’s something missing that you can contribute.”
