Miley Cyrus opens up in ELLE’s May Women in Music issue with writer Tavi Gevinson where no topic seems off limits. She dishes on topics ranging from her Disney past and personal struggles to her political perspective as a young female artist. Ditching the wildly printed leotards and teddy bear props, Miley is shown more subdued, and dare we say modest? Against a dated hotel backdrop, Miley pairs feathered coats, cutout dresses and classic lingerie pieces from designers like Anthony Vaccarello, Ralph Lauren and Marc Jacobs. Her stoic expression and the raw and unedited approach to the editorial shows a new version of Miley that we can’t resist!
