For her controversial "Can't Be Tamed" music video, Miley Cyrus did not turn into a seductive, provocative, unusual peacock overnight. Far from it.
A lot of work went into the transformation, as celebrity makeup artist Denika Bedrossian dishes: “Our inspiration for the video was exotic endangered birds breaking out of their cages; lots of sexy, dark, exotic feathers.”
This included the use of a $25,000 corset on Miley's frame, along with a heavy focus on her eyes. Bedrossian says she applied lashes with real feather tips to Cyrus' peepers - because the singer's eyes are clearly what viewers of this racy video would focus on.

Bedrossian may be the expert, but she emphasizes that Miley was involved in the entire process: “We all collaborated together to create a gothic, edgy, yet feminine bird. She wanted to be a part of every detail.”
