Miley Cyrus wore white at Sunday's Billboard Music Awards in Los Angeles — but the 19-year-old former Disney star looked anything but innocent.

The actress and "Can't Be Tamed" singer showed off her skinnier-than-ever frame — plus a shocking amount of cleavage and her lean legs — in a white Jean Paul Gaulthier jacket and no pants. Cyrus accessorized the super-daring jacket with Jacquie Aiche jewels and Christian Louboutin heels.

Cyrus recently addressed her precociously sexy image during an interview on Lifetime's The Conversation with Amanda de Cadenet.

"If people find that [I am a sex symbol], I take it as a compliment," the former Hannah Montana star said. "Thank you for thinking I'm sexy!"

She said of the public backlash against her provocative behavior: "People are so scared of seeing a woman being like, 'This is who I am and you're not going to change it.'"

And growing up and out of her squeaky-clean child star days was truly liberating, Cyrus added.

"I just got so set in the way of saying the same things I did when I was 12 years old. . . I guess I kind of realized that my whole life isn't one giant press junket. I don't have to be smiling all the time and always have the perfect answer."
