LOVE magazine’s editor-in-chief and stylist extraordinaire Katie Grand writes of Miley Cyrus, “It was tricky to borrow clothes for the shoot because she seems to divide opinion in a Marmite-esque way,” in her latest editor’s letter. The solution? For W, at least, it’s no clothes!
On the cover of the magazine's March issue, the pop star's dripping with diamonds, lying in a sea of white sheets, and showing off bleached blonde hair—and eyebrows. The only color (other than her tattoo) is her dark nail polish, per the request of photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot. Turns out, Cyrus asked celebrity manicurist Lisa Jachno to sharpen her signature almond-shaped nails before painting them with Chanel’s Le Vernis ($27) in Black Satin.
"Miley is one of the coolest young entertainers that I have worked with,” Jachno says. “Her nails were kept long and tapered to create an edge and roughness to her pale look.” We’ve grown quite fond of Miley’s frequent transformations—what do you think of her latest?
