Would You Wear Shorts as Short as Hayden and Cameron?

08/17/2007 at 01:00 PM ET


With the explosion of minidresses, celebrities like Amanda Bynes have been showing off their fabulous toned legs. But those dresses seem almost modest compared to some of the short shorts we’ve been seeing on stars lately. Recently we spotted Hayden Panettiere and Cameron Diaz sporting some eye-poppingly short shorts around town. As hemlines seem to be going higher and higher, we can’t help but wonder how short is too short. Tell us: Would you wear shorts this short? Do you like them on Hayden and Cameron?

I’m from Florida, this is the (unfortunately) preferred length of girls ages 12 to 35. Now, I’m not saying I don’t have shorter shorts, but I ALWAYS make sure there’s absolutely no way my tush is showing at any angle. Another two to three inches and these shorts would have been great.

If I had a body like that I would…the saying is ” if you have it flaunt it”.

short shorts are comfortable in summer. i love wearing them especially when i’m on the beach…

I think that if you have the right shape its maybe okay, but if you dont, try a bit of a longer pair. I like short shorts but not that tight and short.. if you know what i mean.
Still, i like short shorts

sometimes in the summer it justs gets too hot, and shorts this short are comfy. however, if they are too tight, or your buttcheeks are hanging out, its no longer attractive. and if you KNOW they dont flatter your body, please dont wear them! the reason why shorts this short are more wearable than a short dress is that you cant accidentally flash your naughty bits in shorts!

I am 5’8, which I guess is fairly tall, and am around size 2/4 so I like to wear short shorts, I have to be careful how I wear them though so it doesnt come off whorish because they can sometimes looks skanky if you have longer legs.

I think both look great in those shorts. I really think its stupid that most of you think that you should have long legs 2 wear these shorts. I prefer Haydens legs over Camerons. Whats wrong with having an athletic and curvey body? She should stay proud of how she looks. Since when is having skinny long legs the best way 2 go?
I also dont think the sorts are trashy. If everything is covered up and in place, why not wear them?
I fully support them!

LJ, it’s not about everyone having the same kind of body, it’s about wearing what flatters whatever body you’ve got. This particular look only looks good on thin women with thin legs. They can be short or long, but if you’ve got big thighs, it just looks bad. Hayden is not fat by any stretch of the imagination. Her thighs look muscular, not like “thunder thighs” as someone so elegantly observed earlier. Still, the fact of the matter is her shorts are too short and too tight around her thighs and I think they look bad. She’d look much better in a skirt or bermudas. I’m not hating, cause Hayden looks a sight better than I would in those shorts and I think her body is very cute.

well one reasin i wouldnt wear them is because thay look like thay would give you wedgei everytime you sit and no. 2 thay are way too short for me when you have a big butt and thigh(like me)thay are really hard to pull of .
