Miley Cyrus describes her style as "punk and a little edgy".

The singer-and-actress appears on the June edition of ELLE magazine, her first big UK cover shoot.

The 20-year-old says the publication matches her own personal outlook on fashion and beauty, which is more alternative than other glossy magazines.

"ELLE UK is really cool and it is a little different. I think it shows a different side of style that I feel is really me," Cyrus said in a behind-the-scenes video.

"It's a bit punk and a little more edgy. It's really cool to be able to shoot this as I haven't had the chance to do much for the UK like this yet. ELLE is a really cool magazine and my first big cover."

For the June edition, Cyrus features in a ten-page spread where she models some of the season's most iconic pieces. The designers she sports include Saint Laurent, Fendi, Emilio Pucci and Simone Rocha.

Alison Edmond was the fashion stylist on set who explained more about the wardrobe chosen.

"Some of the designers we used are those who are good at portraying a strong woman," Edmond said.

Make-up artist Melanie Inglessis gave a rocker feel to the star's look by using black eye make-up and a nude lip.

"I really wanted to go for a rock'n'roll look to bring Miley's personality out," she said.

Hair stylist Jenny Cho created a cool punk look by putting Cyrus's platinum blonde pixie crop into a Mohawk style.

"She's young and fearless so I created something playful and fun," she explained.

Cyrus found the experience of shooting her extensive spread for the magazine difficult as there were so many outfit choices on offer. She likened the process of selecting the things she wore to working on her music.

"It's like doing an album where you don't want to cut the songs you do like but you have to choose," she said.

"It's like there's so many options and outfits and pictures, you feel like, 'How do I know this is the one I'm really wanting?' I'm glad I don't have to edit through the pictures."
