Are you paying attention, Simon Cowell? Miley Cyrus - our blonde-Mohawked June cover girl - knows exactly how to spot that all-elusive X factor.
'A star is someone who doesn’t have to take her clothes off to be sexy because you naturally have star power,' she told ELLE writer Janice Turner. 'Sex does sell, but you have to find a way that’s not just showing your tits. I don’t want to be a glorified model. They just walk on stage and it’s all about their clothes – or lack of clothes.'
So for us, meeting Miley was very much to do having her bring her own persona to some of the season's most iconic pieces - those by the likes of Saint Laurent, Fendi, Emilio Pucci and Simone Rocha. She rocks 10 pages of them - shot by Jan Welters - in our new issue, out 1 May.
You can read the unmissable interview in full (and yes, she talks about Liam) then, but in the meantime, for all those fans who are about ready to burst from waiting, here's your exclusivebehind-the-scenes look at our Miley shoot. Enjoy.
