MTV Video Music Awards stylist Heather Zweigel has opened up about working with Beyoncé Knowles on last year’s show, admitting the singer made the ceremony “iconic”.

The Wrecking Ball singer will be taking to the stage to host this year’s Video Music Awards ceremony on August 30th in Los Angeles.

And while Heather hasn’t worked with Miley personally, she thinks the 22-year-old’s unique sense of style would make her an interesting client.

“I personally haven’t had the opportunity, but would imagine it would be a constant style adventure where there aren’t too many limitations, which would be extremely liberating to a stylist!” Heather told MTV Style.

Last year’s stand out performance was Beyoncé Knowles 15-minute rendition of her album.

And Heather says that working with the veteran superstar was an incredible experience.

“My team and I worked alongside the Beyoncé styling team for last year’s VMAs to ensure the quick changes were seamless,” Heather continued. “Beyoncé truly made that show iconic. She absolutely stunned in her custom Tom Ford creation and her performance was unforgettable.”

The VMAs famously see some of the world’s most recognisable faces take to the stage both to perform and to collect awards for their videos.

But Heather says that while the atmosphere on stage is relatively calm and collected, backstage it’s a different story.

“It’s insane behind the scenes!” she said. “There’s lot of clothes being thrown, nudity, and talent running in heels while we run after them trying to get them fully zipped up before they go onstage to be seen by millions.”
