Revealed: Why Miley Cyrus hates wearing clothes

Olivia Bergin,

Let's face it, Miley Cyrus has posed or performed while brazenly showing off her groin more times than we've had hot dinners - or at least it feels that way.

On the rare occasions that her groin is concealed from view she opts for crop tops and hot pants or for magazine shoots a bed sheet or nipple covers (brought by her on set).

Yes, she's 21, super-slim and doesn't have to worry about cellulite, but there are two factors pressing on her constant state of undress.

One is that despite her global fame, not every designer is clamouring to dress her. In the new issue of LOVE magazine, editor-in-chief Katie Grand picked Cyrus to star on the cover but writes inside: "It was tricky to borrow clothes for this shoot because she seems to divide opinion in a Marmite-esque way. Many people who I respect didn't want to get involved. They thought there was something superficial about her - dangerous, even."

In the end Grand managed to dress the Wrecking Ball singer in pieces by Balmain, Marc Jacobs, Vivienne Westwood and Miu Miu - but Miley brought her own styling props, the aforementioned nipple stickers, just in case. Needless to say they made the cut.

Meanwhile in the pages of another style bible, W, Cyrus models a top by Alexander McQueen (nothing else) and wraps up in a bed sheet. "We never were inside, and we never wore shoes," she says in the accompanying interview of growing up on a farm. "I think it's why I like wearing no clothes so much and I'm always naked."

Estimated to be worth in the region of $150 million (£92m), Cyrus might not always have hot-off-the catwalk creations at her fingertips, but she could buy all the clothes in the world - if only she wanted to.
