Miley Cyrus is literally shedding her good girl image in the steamy new video for her single “Can’t Be Tamed.” Donning a sexy set of wings and a $25,000 metal corset custom-made by The Blonds, a caged Miley readily takes on the role of a rare bird. Celebrity makeup artist Denika Bedrossian, who created the starlet’s wild look, tells PEOPLE exclusively, “Our inspiration for the video was exotic endangered birds breaking out of their cages; lots of sexy, dark, exotic feathers.” To achieve Miley’s untamed look, Bedrossian focused on the eyes, applying rich jewel-toned shadows. “I used a lot of emerald green, turquoise and black to create a deep peacock eye,” says Bedrossian, who used vivid eye color from MAC and The Balm to stand out against Miley’s fair skin. And to add extra dimension to Miley’s eyes, Bedrossian applied lashes with real feather tips for an authentic bird-like feel. Though Miley’s new look is more grown-up than we are used to, Bedrossian tells us that the songstress helped conceptualize the dramatic change. “We all collaborated together to create a gothic, edgy, yet feminine bird. She wanted to be a part of every detail.” Watch Miley’s “Can’t Be Tamed” video here. Tell us: What do you think of her exotic video look?Andrea DeSimone

The bottom photo looks awesome, but she looks like a train wreck in the top photo.

if she wanted to show the world she wanted to shed her good girl image, this is definitely not the way to do it. her main fan group is kids, and personally, i would feel hesitant to show my kids this.

Her makeup and every thing looks great! But the video looks very lady Gagaish and way to sexy for Miley.She needs to remember that she is only 17 and many young girls still look up to her.I know that she wants to seem older and more edgy but she should trnsition into that more slowly.

Eh, she looks fine! Most girls are trying to grow up too fast anyway and it’s not like she’s making the video all about sex like Britney Spears and Lady Gaga. Mind you, they make great succes off that but Miley makes great success off of looking sexy but meaningful, being creative not crazy and not caring what anyone thinks. Being think that a role model is wholesome and inspiration and Miley is that, not some picture-perfect Disney girl who tries to please everyone. Miley is herself and if you don’t like her, she isn’t forcing you to watch her. She’s said over and over again the reasons for this and that if you can’t handle it, change the channel. P.S.: Miley, you look flawless! =]]

She’s well on her way to being just like Lindsay Lohan. It’s sad that her parents allow this. I guess she doesn’t care about the very young girls who look up to her. I saw the video – not good.

LOVE is more than a LOOK.

Miley Cyrus should know this.

i have to agree that she is growing up but she also needs to remember that itty bitty girls & young teens are looking up to her as their role model & i would never let my daughter watch this, honestly. it’s a great video, she looks awesome, but it’s just too much for a young audience to watch. i was influenced by a lot of singers who were trying to be sexy & thats the way i am now but i would never want my daughter getting influenced like i did. miley has DONE ALOT over the past few years that are not appropriate for girls her age & honestly i don’t see how her dad could let her do just anything but she has amazed & shocked people both. i am not a hater but i am not a lover either. i just don’t think it appropriate for her yet because now every guy is thinking that she is a hot piece of a$$ & thats not a good image.

There is NO reason what so ever to say she is looking way to sexy in that picture… I was walking down the street and saw a 12 year old girl wearing underwear as shorts…. Miley is almost 18 and she isnt gonna be the next lindsey or britany. Billy Ray wouldnt let it happen…
