You can’t help but notice that Miley Cyrus is turning into quite the fashionista these days. With her newly brunette hair and fabulous flirty dresses, the Hannah Montana star is conquering the red carpet as rapidly as the multiplex. We were so wowed by her Grammy look that we went to her stylist Tara Swennen for the inside scoop. Swennen tells us that her starting point was Miley’s new darker hair. “It’s still sort of a drastic change, especially from the blond Hannah Montana,” she says, “so we’re trying to lighten things up for her major red carpet events.” Hence the white Celine dress — and the mandatory sparkles. “Obviously she really likes sequins — she is still 15!” laughs Swennen. But that doesn’t mean that she won’t be trying more sophisticated looks. Swennen tells PEOPLE that Miley “likes to rock out and try new things,” and that we can expect to see more of an edge in her clothing choices, taking cues from style icons like Ashlee Simpson. “She’s a rock star, and that’s what we’re going to see a lot more of this year.”
