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.”

The new makeup look is not a pretty one for this cute girl! The eye makeup makes her eyes look tiny and puffy; stick to the youthful, natural look of previous appearances, it is SO much more flattering! Cute dress for her.

Ashlee Simpson…a fashion icon?? Have I been missing something or living under a rock that I haven’t noticed that Ms. Simpson is now revered for her fashion forward thinking. Please! I don’t think it will do much for Miley’s persona…singing or dress sense…to be compared or to be following in Ashlee Simpson’s footsteps.

She’s so cute on the show, not so much here. Her face is way too made up, the hair ages her and her face looks chubby. Clothes are fine, face and make up, thumbs down.

The dress was way too short, the shoes didn’t seem to fit her feet, too much fake hair and too much make-up. She’s 15 and there’s a way to dress classy and sophisticated without trying to look like your 25. Every 15 year old wants to look 25 but the stylist could have made her look rocker chic and still her age. Miley next time have your manager get in touch with Gwen Stefani and have her set you up with something from Lamb. If you want to do classy, rocker chic the only true source is Gwen. Tara Sweenen you hit all the wrong notes and everyone in the fashion world said so, so get your act together and remember the age of the person your dressing or move onto another client. We don’t need anymore Lindsay’s or Britney’s or Paris’s in this world.

I can’t believe anyone liked it, it looked very pornstar…….bad stylist.

As a middle school teacher and mom, I applaud Miley’s style. She’s demur and appropriate for her age. Any one who thinks this is “too much” hasn’t seen the way middle schoolers have come to their 8th grade dance for the last few years. I’m thrilled that Miley is their new style hero and that Brittany and Paris are waning!

Maybe I was an unusual 15 year old, but I hated sequins.

Kelly on

Way too much makeup and ugly hair extensions. She’s only 15, let her look like the happy, healthy teenager she seems to be.

Rebecca on

Miley’s dress is very pretty and appropriate, however she does have a ton of make-up on and that hair looks rather bushy and too long.

Bev on

Yes, she has too much makeup on. The last few dresses she has on are way too short too. Maybe just adding one inch would help. She looks like a hooker with all the makeup & shorter dresses. She looks great natural, with just a little makeup & more hip clothes. Not hooker clothes.
