Did Miley Cyrus Show Too Much Skin at the Billboard Music Awards?

We know her style’s been getting sexier lately — short-shorts and tube tops, two-piece dresses, super-high slits — but was Miley Cyrus‘s latest fashion moment too racy?

The starlet showed up to the Billboard Music Awards Sunday night wearing a plunging white Jean Paul Gaultier blazer … and not much else. She paired the jacket with simple jewelry, black-and-white peep-toe shoes and makeup by Tarte.

“I love white on white,” she told PEOPLE while walking the red carpet. “I love a good white party.”

The outfit, though giving the appearance of airiness, was still quite warm, however. “There are nooks and crannies that get sweaty, I swear,” Cyrus added.

To be fair, the show did take place in Las Vegas, so most stars’ styles definitely had an extra dose of sexiness, but is showing this much skin inappropriate for a 19-year-old? Let us know what you think in the poll below!

She’s 19 for pete’s sake people! If this was any other starlet but Mylie Cyrus it wouldn’t be a big deal! I remember when Britney Spears went through the same thing.. Yawn…

I think she’s trying too hard to be grown up. She’s an adult now but just barely. I agree that if you’re going to show cleavage you can’t also have a very short hemline. It’s one or the other if you have any class at all. No need for woman to dress like she’s selling herself on a corner to be sexy. That garners attention from males, but not the right kind unless all you’re after is to be used and tossed away afterward because that’s how they’ll view you dressed like that.

Yes. The answer is yes she did.

I think she’s trying to figure herself out. She’s young and has a lot of freedom. She’s experimenting and making mistakes. I did it too, just in a different way.

I agree with other comments, she looks old. The first thought that popped in to my head was that she looks like she is 40.

She’s looking a little “ho-ish” and old.

It’s like she forgot to get dressed and just threw on a blazer and heels.
Not hating, but this what happens to most stars when they are not getting attention and lack talent, they wear less hoping no one will notice the latter.


No 19yr old of mine would be allowed out like that. Yuck and unflattering.
