She has fun styling Miley...
Entertainment Weekly recently interviewed stylist, Simone Harouche, the woman said to be behind Miley Cyrus' latest fashion phase. Below are some highlights.
Harouche on working with Miley Cyrus: "Miley is really fun. She's open to trying new things. With every artist, especially musicians, when they put out a new album, their look needs to mirror what their sound is. With this new departure and new sound, Miley wanted to evolve as someone who is into fashion and style. It's a matter of listening to her music and hearing the vibe and going from there. I think [to myself], ‘I'm hearing this music, now how should this look? How should this sound look?' You create a package. She's really fun and open to taking risks. She's got an amazing body and she's hot. We have a lot of fun."
Harouche on choosing Miley's outfit for the VMA's: "I go through all the runway looks and we do requests with the showrooms and fashion PR people. We'll end up having three or four racks of gowns and clothes. It depends on the client, but we usually have one or two fittings and narrow down the look. A lot goes into leading up to picking that outfit. With the VMAs, you can take more risks. You can have a little bit more fun. It's not as serious as going to the Grammys or the Oscars. With the music industry, you can push the boundaries more. The Oscars are all about beautiful gowns and people look forward to seeing the fashions, which are stunning, runway pieces. It's more serious and high-end. People in the music world love to push the envelope. [At the VMAs] you see people in shocking outfits."
