Miley Cyrus may have taken steps to transform her image from over-the-top to more natural, but she hasn’t fully removed herself from wearing head-turning ensembles.
The “Younger Now” songstress proved that by posing nearly nude, as the model for the cover of famed photographer and director David LaChapelle’s forthcoming book of photography, “Lost + Found.”
The photo, which is displayed in the “Entertainment Tonight” clip above, shows the physically fit, 25-year-old singer looking unrecognizable, and somewhat like a butterfly goddess. She is pictured next to a toilet and sink, and appears to be wearing nothing but big hair, technicolor fairy wings, heavy makeup and glitter on select portions of her body.
Rest assured, though, Miley is actually dressed in a sheer bodysuit that features pink Swarovski crystals.
Miley’s contribution to the project is a pretty big deal, as the book, published by Taschen, is Dave’s first in 10 years. Other stars including Lady Gaga, Kanye West and the late Amy Winehouse, David Bowie and Michael Jackson are also featured in the project, which is due out Dec. 1.
In May, Miley told Billboard she wanted to be “super clear and sharp” for her next record, which includes the already released tracks “Malibu,” “Inspired,” “Younger Now” and “Rainbowland.” On Aug. 18, she dropped her music video for her single, “Younger Now.” The clip, which shows her wearing Elvis-inspired clothing, is a clear indication that she’s reconnecting to her country roots.
“Younger Now” is featured on Miley’s forthcoming album of the same name. The record drops Sept. 29.
