A Stylist Behind Miley Cyrus's Controversial VMA Performance Has (Almost) No Regrets

Miley Cyrus's stylist has one regret about the star's controversial performance. She wishes there'd been MORE TWERKIN'.

Even Miley Cyrus's batshit mesh-covered-pasties outfit can't overshadow the star's controversial twerkin' at the VMAs. Which everyone is still talking about btw--most recently The Cut, which chatted with the stylist/creative mind who helped with that whole look (and Miley's "We Can't Stop" video), Lisa Katnic.

Turns out we have Katnic to thank for the VMA performance costumes and foam sports-fan hand--the latter, of which, she made personally. Katnic also "dressed" the basically naked models in Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" video--so she's no stranger to controversy. And she certainly wasn't put off by the largely negative reaction to Cyrus's performance. She does, however, have one regret about the whole thing: She wishes there'd been MORE TWERKING.

The L.A.-based stylist says that we, the viewers, completely missed out, as we “didn’t really get to see [seven-foot-tall burlesque dancer] Amazon Ashley’s butt twerking--which is an amazing sight."

More amazing than a wandering naughty foam finger accessory and dancing plushy teddy bears?

“I feel bad for people who had to watch the performance on-camera," Katnic laments to the Cut. "It was a spectacle in person.”
