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?

American Idol fans all need to grow up, people can find her attractive and even know who she is without watching the show. I see posts like the ones here everytime this girl appears anywhere. And then people wonder why the show isn’t taken seriously. Oh well it would appear Katharine is beyond all that now.

btw she looks great, all of them do

I think Katharine looks great. She can pull off sexy without looking trashy: few can do it! Shes going to be a star, and I hope she has a great career.

c’mon, Katharine is obviously the best looking out of these three. She has so much star factors and that dress is HOT
btw her new single is amazing as hell, I Lost You/Dangerous really nice, can’t wait for the whole new album!

DAMN, If I was as hot as Katharine McPhee I would walk around naked all the time. Saying this, I love what she is wearing (In awards like Bilboard and MTV it’s okay to use short skirts… and hell if I had great legs like her I would expose it time from time) as well Jessica Biel. Nikki is the only one I really didn’t like it. It’s not flattering.

I don’t know what all of youa re thinking. Nicky looks the best by far. Her dress is super fashionable. Jessica’s dress is great too. Katherine: looks slutty and trying WAY too hard.

How High should a mini skit be? Well that depends on who great legs one has and how old one is. Its ok if the gal has great legs, but some of these actress should not wear them there legs are terrible.
In fact some of these actress I wonder who dressess them they look terrible in some of these outfits.
