Celebrity designing gone too far.

Okay, so we had Kate Moss for Topshop, Lily Allen for New Look, Penelope Cruz for Mango etc etc etc. And I can see why some of these "modern style icons" are chosen to "design" or at least inspire their own clothing lines, but the latest one has left me completely dumbfounded. 

16 year old Miley Cyrus is to team up with Max Azria (Chairman, Designer and CEO of BCBG Azria Group) to create a junior line of clothing for..... Wal-Mart. 
The trend driven collection of graphic t-shirts, bottoms and shoes will be introduced in stores and online in August, and all items will be priced lower than $20.
It makes sense that if Miley was to team up with any one designer, it would be Azria, since he has dressed her for many celebrity events. In fact, both these gorgeous Hervé Léger dresses worn by Miley were designed by Max Azria. But really, how much influence can the 16 year old Cyrus have over the design process?
