Michael Kors has added his voice to the chorus chiming in on the Miley Cyrus controversy – and gives his approval to both the Hannah Montana star and to photographer Annie Leibovitz.
"I think they're beautiful pictures," the fashion designer and Project Runway judge told PEOPLE at Monday's New York premiere of Iron Man, an event he co-sponsored with the Cinema Society.
As for the debate over the photos and what all this may mean to Cyrus's career, "I don't understand what the hubbub is about," says Kors, 48.
