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?

Jessica Biel is beautiful but that’s not the best dress. The length is fine, it’s the one shouldered thing I don’t like. Katharine McPhee looks absolutely amazing.

O’Wryly, are you insane? While I admit that the dress is a bit trashy because of the plunging neck line, Katherine does not have big legs. It’s comments like that that turn girls into twigs like Kate Bosworth and Nicole Richie. You probably think they have great legs. Now with that off my chest, I think that if you have good legs, you can wear short dresses and skirts, but don’t go for the plunging neck line or anything else too revealing. It just looks like you are trying too hard, and it comes off trashy looking.

Jessica Biel looks classy. Nicki is ok, almost too thin. Katharine I don’t know who she is but her skirt is too short.

They all look beautiful but Jessica out beats all of them! She’s more than beautiful!!

Are they wearing panties?!!? Thats all i care about. Katharine is looking very stunning these days. Classy not trashy! I don’t think she looks trashy at all. Type in ‘Britney Spears’ and then you will see the definition of trashy.

too short for me but Katherine is young and her body is good enough for this dress. glad we weren’t subjected to her bending over, tho. why does Nicky Hilton look so thin?

Angie on

I love the dress Katherine is wearing! It suits her body type and her age, but doesn’t cross the line. I’d wear that anyday! The other 2 dresses are nice, too. I like Katherine’s the best, though!

Reading through these comments, it’s obvious that the american idol fans are trying to bombard yet another board. It’s always so obvious since the general public has no idea who Mcphee is. She’s a joke outside of american idol. But on topic I say Jessica looks the best. She is pure class, not imitation.

O’Wryly are u on crack? giant thighs? where… were you accidently looking at a pic of yourself with a mini on? I think McPhee’s skirt is a bit short, but it does not look bad on her. If I had a body and legs like that, I’d be flaunting my stuff all the time!

laura on

no. only because my legs are so long it will look like i’m wearing barbie’s clothes.
