Would You Wear Paris Hilton's Garters?

10/23/2007 at 06:00 AM ET


Something is going on with Hollywood and wacky hosiery lately. First Jessica Alba‘s kneesocks over tights, then Rihanna‘s thigh-highs, and now Paris Hilton is bringing old fashioned garters back! The heiress showed off her retro stockings in a thigh-baring miniskirt while partying in Los Angeles — and then repeated the look at the Spike TV Scream Awards this weekend. We say it takes a brave woman to put that much attention on her thighs, but we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear garters like Paris? Do you like the look on her?

I guess she isn’t getting enough attention lately, so she resorted to this. If she wants to show the world that she has changed, she is going about it the wrong way. A sexy look is good for her, but this is overdone and sleeeezy. I can’t believe she wore this look twice!!

Only if I started hanging out on street corners to make some extra cash! It looks like she left the house and forgot to put on her skirt!

kendra on

yea, in the bedroom for my husband. NOT IN PUBLIC.

Elda on

Yes i would, she’s looking sexy and stylish at the same time!!

Racquel on

Yes Yes Yes!!!!! I am far from Paris’s number 1 fan but at the same time I am not a hater either. She looks well…HOT!!! Not everyone could pull off the garters but with her long legs that seem to never stop I say draw attention to them. Anyone who thinks different must not have legs for days. I was surprised to see her choice of shoe though. I would have thought if Paris was going to do the garters she would have gone with a little bit more sexiness in the shoe. Still hot though:)

NO WAY would I ever wear this get-up. It looks rediculous. She always manages to make her body look like a limp noodle. So Much Slouching! It ruins nearly every outfit she wears.

Trish on

Nope and No way. She looks as if she is going to an audition for Julia Robert’s Pretty Woman. Just another way of satisfying her attention cravings..
It’s a shame really…she could be a very beautiful woman yet she insists on being a trashy teenager basically…I know that sounds harsh but it is the truth, how I see it anyway.

Priscilla on

she looks pretty but she ruin it.

Kim v on

She looks like she forgot a layer when she was getting dressed. I would not wear this.

Glenda on

Has Halloween come early?

Horse Girl on

In the bedroom, not in public. She would look so much prettier if she would just dress classier.

first i saw the top of the picture and i was like paris’s finaly wearing something nice, and then i saw the rest and all my hopes sank…
no way i would wear gaters… it’s screaming cheap cheap cheap…

Rebecca on

I wouldn’t try the garters as I have big athletic thighs, but I think the look is rather cute on Paris for a fun night out.

Puh-lease Paris, the garders are rediculous! Clearly she is preparing for her charity work in Rwanda!

one of the bouncers hated it but the other loved it .. i got right in

Tania on

She might as well work in a strip club if you ask me.

laura on

not to a party unless it was a themed party. or at least i would show them. she looks cute still. she’s been doing better.

Lovely on

Bad idea paris

Anonymous on

I would not wear that in my life! Thats something you would wear to the strip club!

melinda on


Obviously you haven’t been to a strip club because Paris has more clothes on than a stripper!

SK on

I would wear garters to a club in Hollywood but not with the rest of the outfit. Paris did not do this look right. It looks too soft and feminine (with the light colored makeup and headband) to pair with garters. The outfit is not a sexy one…it just looks like garters were thrown into the mix with a casual black outfit and overall creates a confused look- neither feminine nor sexy, just lost. If she was going for sexy, she should have gone for it all the way with a sexy dress, darker makeup, and voluminous hair sans headband.

laura on

she pulls alot of things off.
i personally think people are afraid to try something new.
if other celebrities start dressing like that, everyone else would.
i can bet on it too.


what pisses me off about Ms Hilton is that she keeps going away with murder wether fashion, misconduct or trollope-attitude is concern. If she was balck or even hispanic she would have already been locked for being SO AWFUL and such a bad example to human beings. But because she’s rich, blonde and white she is allowed to do what she does.Sad…

robin on

Paris is Hawt sporting her garters. I dont think she is tying to get attention-She is baby. Dont be a hater.

Caroline on

I like it ! it’s original !
I will not wear that but it’s kinda cool.

liz on

Paris Hilton shouldn’t have even worn that!

preete on

Well, I love PARIS for bringing old style again. She looks hotter than any other person. But I dont like her as a person.

podge on

good thing she has bodyguards, i mean walking like that out in public isn’t the best idea ever. especially like in queens or the bronx or something. hehe that remindes me of this one part in The Nanny. ok so niles and mr. shefield are trying to turn fran into a proper lady for this dinner-thing that is happening at their house. so their trying to teach her how to talk with a british-sort of accent. mr shefield is like “ok repeat after me: james in a lark went to central park after dark” and then fran was like “jee i hope he has a gun” hehehhehehheheh that was funny. ok so yah. about her outfit: SLUTTY SLUTTY SLUTTY of her to wear that out in public, its not even halloween
