Perhaps the daring ensemble was an attempt to distract from the fact that Miley Cyrus wasn't wearing her engagement ring from Liam Hemsworth.

After all the rumours about their relationship - whether they're together or on the verge of a split - we'd have thought Miley would be wearing the massive rock at every opportunity she got.

She did, however, look amazing in her tiny white hotpants. The singer, 20, teamed the shorts with a baggy black vest, gold belt and black and silver sandals.

The outing comes just a few weeks after Miley's dad, Billy Ray Cyrus revealed he wasn't sure whether Miley and Liam would ever get married.

He said: "I know as I was writing a book, I wanted to keep that particular moment [Miley’s wedding] as open-ended as possible. I didn’t know the answer. They're young, they're kids, the great news is they’re great friends, they're really good friends."

He continued: "I play it by ear, I know whatever's meant to be that's the way it's going to happen.”
