Self appointed twerk team captain, Miley Cyrus, is scheduled to present Marc Jacobs and Robert Duffy with the prestigious ‘Superstar Award’ during this week’s Fashion Group International Night of Stars Gala.

Although you may be thinking that Miley’s questionable fashion choices should have barred her from all things fashion related, the pairing as presenter to Marc Jacobs actually makes sense. In a Hunger mag interview, the pop star cited Jacobs as her longtime mentor. “I work a lot with Marc Jacobs. He kind of brought me into fashion when I was 16, that was when I started being around him and just learning from him. He let me inspire some of his pieces…”

We were just as surprised but does this mean Miley’s ‘mentor-mentee’ relationship with Marc Jacobs technically makes her fashion royalty?
