How Miley Cyrus’ Costume Designers Managed To Turn Pot Leaf Jumpsuits Into Art

If you’re lucky enough to get tickets to the highly anticipated Miley Cyrus Bangerz tour, it looks like you’re in for a real disaster treat. She’s already getting great publicity (remember a few nights ago when she was photographed putting a fan’s thong in her mouth?) and a recent interview with her costume designers has just confirmed that Bangerz is one psychosexual fever dream you won’t want to miss.

Miley’s tour garb (which includes, among other things, a Jessica Rabbit dress, an outfit made out of a larger-than-life photo of Miley’s own face, and some kind of terrifying, furry Santa Claus top) was designed by famous duo The Blonds, who’ve also dressed stars like Beyoncé and Ke$ha. David Blond opened up to People about their designing process, and thank god he did:

She really knows what she likes and what she wants. We had a lot of freedom but the process was really collaborative and we always appreciate when the performer puts in their two cents. Miley likes to show off her legs and body so everything was really high cut, low cut, or both.

Wow, that’s so weird! I’ve never thought of Miley as someone who liked to display her body in public. I’ve only seen her nipples, like, twelve times. Anyway, The Blonds go on to explain how they brought magic to the individual pieces:

We digitally printed marijuana leaves onto fabric and embellished them to give the bodysuit a three-dimensional effect, since we know how much she enjoys the Mary Jane.

Wait, has Miley Cyrus expressed interest in recreational marijuana use? I must have missed that. I had no idea. The designers also shockingly reveal that Cyrus seems to enjoy photographs of her own face with her tongue hanging free, describing their process of creating her crazy t-shirt dress out of a Terry Richardson photo:

[We] crystalized her eyelashes, lips, and earrings to create great little sparkly details. It looks like her head is on top of her legs.

Whether you love, hate, fear, are sick of hearing about, or admire Miley Cyrus, you can at least be grateful that her propensity for attention-seeking has employed a lot of really talented, really interesting people. I’m looking forward to seeing what kinds of crazy/artful costumes she’ll gyrate in next.

    There’s no worry, and zero demand. From today’s article in Forbes: “Demand for Miley Cyrus tickets for her Bangerz tour, however, have softened after that peak in popularity, resulting in lots of empty seats and dropping prices in the secondary market.” Thankfully people aren’t digging her crap.
