Mini Skirts: How Short Would You Go?

12/13/2006 at 01:00 PM ET

We’ve seen some alarmingly short skirts lately — skirts so short that they make raising your hands above your head a big no-no! But some people, like Katharine McPhee at the Billboard music awards, seem to pull it off without worry. Nicky Hilton opts for a safer, mid-thigh length in Miami, while Jessica Biel cuts it off just above her knee in this one-shouldered number. Now it’s your turn. Tell us: How short should mini-skirts go?

Nicky is good opsion cause the thing is wearing thing that make you feel good and look pretty it is not to see who gets the slotiest look!!!

I don’t think Katherine can pull it off. It makes her thighs and stomach look fat.

Katherine McPhee looks like a McHooch

I think Ms.Katherine’s skirt is trashy. I do not think it is the length of the skirt but the top of the dress and all. It looks like something a stripper would wear (not for long). But if I had those legs, I might wear it too, just because I can!

Get over urselves on

OK, here’s the thing. Most girls really do look trashy in skirts like this. Mcphee does have great legs, but you can tell that she is uncomfortable wearing something so foriegn to her. Bur for the record, WHY DO YOU CARE? I mean really get a life! So what? You aren’t wearing it so why do you care. And for all of those peole trashing O’Wryly, LEARN TO READ. He never said anything about those women in particular. Nicky is a stick but it’s none of your bussiness.And Kat is just trying to separate herself from American Idol. I mean, when you see her, can’t you just picture Simon Cowell? She wants to be thought of as someone who isn’t just “that girl from american idol” I honestly don’t blame her.

I think that nicky hilton looks best becuase it’s not super short like katherine mcphees, but not as conservative as jessica biels.

I just hate Katharine’s sense of style. She’s trying too hard to look as fashionista as other celebrities when in fact, she’s nothing like them. And oh, her, once bulimic? Thats ridiculous! She’s chubby, how dare her confess that she’s had an eating disorder. I guess that’s just one of her tricks to be the center of attention. I just dont like everything about her..her voice, her moves, the way she pretends to be somebody she’s not, and the way she dresses herself..HIDDEOUS!

To the person who commented above…excuse me? Anybody who had/has an eating disorder probably go through a lot of self concious days, and it doesnt help when some one says ‘how dare you have an eating disorder’. It hurts me to think, that people actually have feelings like this, because I wouldnt want anyone to say things like that about me, so I would never say that about another person, especially about someone I didnt even konw…

Really short cause the shorter the hotter

Maddie on

UMMMM…there is such a thing as over doing it. I mean, come on! When you can see your butt from the front it’s a LITTLE too short!
