Since she couldn't open her mouth to stick her tongue out in Marc Jacobs' high fashion spring 2014 campaign ads, Miley Cyrus opted to purse her lips together instead.
The pouty look makes for some striking images. The campaign also features two other models who serve as background props for Miley. All three look lost and forlorn in jewel-toned frocks that cover up their entire bodies -- a far cry from the singer's usual raunchy fashions. The somber tone of the photos is further enhanced by the gloomy beach backdrop.
"We wanted this beach with the girls kind of sulky and broody, and we thought it would be cool if it was Miley with what could be two friends, feeling distant and quite dark," Jacobs said.
After the designer's go-to photographer Juergen Teller refused to shoot the controversial starlet, David Sims stepped up to bat.
Unlike his photog, Jacobs said he adores Miley.
"There's nothing I don't like about her," he said. "She is just genuine and very natural."
There must be another side to Miley, after all.
