Miley Cyrus wants to be taken seriously. So much that she’s willing to put herself in the line of fire by showing (too much of) herself in a women fashion magazine: Miley Cyrus covers Elle August 2009.
Miley, widely known as Hannah Montana sprung some serious controversy when doing her last “serious” magazine spread (remember Vanity Fair by Annie Leibovitz?); a year later she’s back, ready to raise more eyebrows (photographed by Carter Smith) as she puts on a Rodarte dress or a Wu jacket. (the story continues right after the jump with more pictures!)
Elle’s August Cover story decrypted: Miley has officially started promoting her Max Azria Wal-Mart Collection! Elle knows how to rule out financial difficulty throughout the summer heat! (not to mention the number of teen-buyers they’ll drawn to the dark side with this issue!) Is that pink thing really to appear in Elle? (photos via 1, 2)
