Fashion Faceoff: Ashlee vs. Tori (vs. Me!)

12/22/2006 at 12:02 PM ET

I grew up in Texas like Ashlee, and I dote on my pug like Tori — it evens turns out that I own the same adorable paisley Free People velvet tunics as they do. But, that (and my non-celeb status) is where the similarities end. Both Ashlee and Tori treat this piece like a dress, just wearing it over tights — while I pair mine with leggings or jeans, because it is simply too short to wear with stockings! If I bent over in my dress without something very opaque on underneath, I would risk some very indecent exposure. My hat off to these ladies if they have figured out something about keeping covered in a micro-mini that I haven’t (and kudos to Tori for not just sticking to maternity wear). This is a whole new dimension of super-short hemlines. Tell us: Would you wear a dress this short without pants? Who wears it better: Ashlee or Tori?Melissa Liebling-Goldberg

The fishnets on Tori look ridiculous. She should take some tips from Heidi Klum on how to be pregnant and keep your sense of style. Ashlee looks cute and pulled-together, but I couldn’t carry off the look without pants!

I wouldn’t wear something like that, personally. I think I’m a little too conservative! However, I think Tori looks better in it than Ashlee. It looks too short on Ashlee, and I don’t like it with boots.

i think ashlee wins this one. tori spelling IS SOO UGLYYYY

Tori looks the best! Her blonde hair provides a nice contrast to the black outfit. Ashlee’s scarf, or whatever it is, makes her head look weird!

I wish I had the body to pull this look off. I think Tori looks great. If Ashlee took the hat off she might look okay in it. It is a cute outfit and I think Tori can pull it off.

This is a cute look, but I would wear it with pants, maybe tight black leggings. It looks way better on Ashlee, she gives it a young modern feel with her boots, hat and bag.
But Tori looks ridiculous as usual. Amazing how two people can wear the same thing and look so different.

Tori looks great. I don’t think I have ever said those words before…but she does look pretty good.

Christine on

I’d definitely wear it without pants, as long as it was with tights… I hate leggings, and am not too fond of the dress over jeans look – if you have the legs to wear it, why not?

rachel on

I would totes wear a short dress without pants– why would you wear it with pants?
I think they both look bad in that dress…

Quinci on

I think they both look fine in the dress, but the dress is a little to short to be wearing while you’re pregnant.
