Vanessa Minnillo: How To Look Good In Short Shorts

01/05/2007 at 10:00 AM ET

As the host of TRL, an ET correspondent and the girlfriend of a pop megastar, Vanessa Minnillo sure is a busy gal.  But when BONGO JEANS asked the former beauty queen to be the new face of BONGO for Spring 2007, the self-proclaimed denim addict (she owns hundreds of pairs!) couldn’t say no — especially when she saw some of the clothes she’d be wearing in her very own ad campaign. “These shorts are special,” she told me at her sexy BONGO photo shoot, where she tried on cropped cardigans and comfy soft knit tanks, skirts, and shorts—some really SHORT shorts.  “I have no bum, but these give you a nice little booty.”   Ok, Vanessa, but when it comes to those teeny tiny shorts, booty isn’t everything—how does she keep her legs so long and lean?  “I’m not gonna lie, I do go to the gym.  But honestly, you just have to find time to be active,” she told me. Then she picked up a downright adorable pair of canvas pumps with red patent leather heels.   “But if you want these legs in these shorts?  These heels will help,” she said.  Spoken like a true pitchwoman.  —Kristen Mascia

I don’t like that pic of vanessa.I kinda think her thighs look fat, don’t get me wrong i’m a total fan, but i just don’t like that outfit.

FAT? you people are sick.

Go girl! Nice fashion since, and can pull it off without
being a total slut. Nick should feel so much better now that he’s with someone, who appears to be more real.

Give me a break people! You all go on about Nicole being too thin or Mariah too fat. Now you think Vanessa has fat leg and her stumach isn’t ripped. This is why there are so many people that are killing themselves to have the perfect body. Anybody that is less then a size 3 needs to put on some weight. Vanessa looks healthy to me.

marie is in da house on
