Miley Cyrus talks 'edgy' ELLE cover

Miley Cyrus describes her style as "punk and a little edgy".

The singer-and-actress appears on the June edition of ELLE magazine, her first big UK cover shoot.

The 20-year-old says the publication matches her own personal outlook on fashion and beauty, which is more alternative than other glossy magazines.

"ELLE UK is really cool and it is a little different. I think it shows a different side of style that I feel is really me," Miley revealed in a behind-the-scenes video. "It's a bit punk and a little more edgy. It's really cool to be able to shoot this as I haven't had the chance to do much for the UK like this yet. ELLE is a really cool magazine and my first big cover."

For the June edition, Miley rocks a ten-page spread where she models some of the season's most iconic pieces. The designers she sports include Saint Laurent, Fendi, Emilio Pucci and Simone Rocha.

Alison Edmond was the fashion stylist on set who explained more about the wardrobe chosen.

"Some of the designers we used are those who are good at portraying a strong woman," Alison revealed.

Make-up artist Melanie Inglessis gave a rocker feel to the star's look by using black eye make-up and a nude lip.

"I really wanted to go for a rock 'n' roll look to bring Miley's personality out," she revealed.

Hair stylist Jenny Cho created a cool punk look by putting Miley's platinum blonde pixie crop into a Mohawk style.

"She's young and fearless so I created something playful and fun," she explained.

Miley found the experience of shooting her extensive spread for the magazine difficult as there were so many outfit choices on offer. She likened the process of selecting the things she wore to working on her music.

"It's like doing an album where you don't want to cut the songs you do like but you have to choose," she laughed. "It's like there's so many options and outfits and pictures, you feel like, 'How do I know this is the one I'm really wanting?' I'm glad I don't have to edit through the pictures."

    Driving a $900,000 Porsche 918 Spyder to the future

    It’s more than just its inherent speed, or the whooshing noise that fills the cabin like a school choir jamming with James Hetfield. It’s what it represents in an industry full of skeptics. It’s a portal into the future – a time capsule left by some mad scientist born decades too soon. It’s something that shouldn’t exist. And yet it does.
