Looks like Miley finally got the memo! While not always synonymous with career-defining style, Lebanese designer Zuhair Murad credits the star with catapulting him to the big leagues. “We got many calls, many e-mails, some of them just for congratulations and some of them for orders,” he tells nymag.com of the elaborate gown Cyrus wore to the 2009 Academy Awards. “It’s a very special art,” he says of his handmade creations, designed for “women who love fashion” and buy pieces “to be special, to be different.” And though A-listers flock to his capricious designs, including Jennifer Lopez, who wore his sequin-dusted gown to last year’s Met Gala (“People were crying,” he insists), Murad is forever grateful to his first high-profile fan. “Many, many, many celebrities at the same time start wearing my clothes,” he explains. “But the biggest occasion, the first one, was Miley Cyrus at the Oscars.” –Justine Harman
