You'd never know it from her Marc Jacobs campaign gig or her major covers for the likes of W, but is Miley Cyrus experiencing a backlash from the fashion community? Jacobs himself admitted that longtime collaborator Juergen Teller declined to photograph the provocative pop star. Now, Love editor-in-chief Katie Grand says that many designers were reluctant to loan out clothes for Cyrus to wear during her cover shoot for the magazine's spring/summer '14 issue. Maybe this explains why she's hardly ever wearing anything?
“At first I wasn’t sure about Miley," Grand writes. "A lot of people aren’t. It was tricky to borrow clothes for the shoot because she seems to divide opinion in a Marmite-esque way. Many people I respect didn’t want to get involved. They thought there was something superficial about her — dangerous, even.”
Of course, it's hard to complain too much when Roberto Cavalli is designing your tour costumes and you've been stepping out in Margiela and Markus Lupfer. Cyrus is a polarizing figure, but if big labels won't come to her, she should use this as opportunity to celebrate more adventurous brands and young designers. After all, it worked for Gaga.
