The Scoop on Miley Cyrus's Glam Grammy Look!

You can’t help but notice that Miley Cyrus is turning into quite the fashionista these days. With her newly brunette hair and fabulous flirty dresses, the Hannah Montana star is conquering the red carpet as rapidly as the multiplex. We were so wowed by her Grammy look that we went to her stylist Tara Swennen for the inside scoop. Swennen tells us that her starting point was Miley’s new darker hair. “It’s still sort of a drastic change, especially from the blond Hannah Montana,” she says, “so we’re trying to lighten things up for her major red carpet events.” Hence the white Celine dress — and the mandatory sparkles. “Obviously she really likes sequins — she is still 15!” laughs Swennen. But that doesn’t mean that she won’t be trying more sophisticated looks. Swennen tells PEOPLE that Miley “likes to rock out and try new things,” and that we can expect to see more of an edge in her clothing choices, taking cues from style icons like Ashlee Simpson. “She’s a rock star, and that’s what we’re going to see a lot more of this year.”

I thought her mom was with her all the time? I wouldn’t let my 15 year old look like that. Especially if she is an influence to young girls.

She’s at the GRAMMYS! Are people forgetting it’s a red carpet event? Like Stacy said, it’s just make up. She’s having fun and playing glam for a day. I’ve seen plenty of candid pictures of her where she looks like any other ordinary 15 year old. Her body is covered and she looks like she’s having fun. The poor girl probably felt pretty awesome about herself that night until she came on this board. Apparently wearing a full face of make-up for one special night makes someone a bad role model.

her face looks different than on her show- seems swollen or something. this dress isn’t very pretty, looks a bit tacky, but i guess she wanted to show off her legs which are fabulous

I agree, she is just perfect with that make up on! Let her have some fun! Every girl at her age would love to put on make up everyday and wear all that fabulous clothes everyday, it’s like a dream come true, it’s like a fairytale! So let her play with her hair!
It’s her very special night, so let her again feel like the real rockstar she is!
Everybody at her age would have loved to play with fashion and make up as she does!
So don’t be jealous, and allow her to feel like the very very very celebrity she is! on

I don’t like seeing tons of makeup on children but I’m sure for Miley it is just like “dress up” and it is a fancy event. Sort of like how even young ballerina’s wear makeup to complement the stage

jennifer….u could’nt have said it better


Way too much makeup for a little girl! Is it just me or does she remind you guys of Linda Blaire from The Exorcist? I think young starletts try a little to hard to look more grown up. Too much makeup seems trashy to me. I like the au natural look myself.

Ashlee Simpson should be the last person Miley is trying to imulate!

She is absolutely repulsive. Her lack of singing talent, red-neck accent and cheesy clothing make me sad about the current choices of Disney channel.
