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?

giant sequoias? more like athletic, powerful, strong shapely legs. McPhee’s legs are sexy. they actually have very nice definition and tone to them where you can see that she works out and maintains her body as opposed to the anorexic twig stick girls who make athletic girls look like goddessess. she’s EARNED the right to show off any damn part of her body that she pleases. id appreciate McPhee’s look anyday over some skinny chick who probably doesn’t even work out, just throws up instead, and despite her thinness still has cottage cheese thighs (and we all know theres plenty of those out there)

I think that they all look really good. BUt they might be jsut a little to short for me.

Definiately McPhee- the other ones don’t even come close!

Katharine’s skirt length is really too short and it is unnecessary for her to have to wear it that short especially with that neckline. She did not dress like this on American Idol. I feel like she is feeling like she has to change her image in order for people to pay attention to her and that will draw people’s attention away from her amazing voice and towards the way she dresses.

The mini skirts are great-Kat’s length is perfect-it doesn’t need to be exposing or trashy. I think the mini skirt is really sexy when worn with a shirt that has sleeve and a high neck line, that way you are showing off one asset and leaving the rest to the imagination.

now that is SHORT! I do believe that if you think you have ‘killer legs’ or whatever you can show it of but when you sit down the whole world can see your crotch? that’s a bit too far I’d say… the shortest i would go is definitely nicky hilton’s skirt… and i have nice legs too so dont go around saying people who have more respect on how they look like are just ‘jealous’

Jessica looks lovely and her dress is a lot longer then McBeaver, but Kat’s dress is way to short when the top is so low as well. You can get by with one or the other. Having both ends showing just looks trashy.

I would go with nicky hiltons. I love her style!!!! Kathrines is waaaaaay too short. Nicky has it the perfect length.

Betsy on

i would absolutely never wear a skirt that short, she looks trashy

Tootsie on

She is sooo fat and thinks way too highly of herself!
Get a life Kat!!
