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?

McPHEE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Nicky looks pretty drab and doesn’t belong there with the other two. Jessica looks great, and Katharine McPhee looks AWESOME!! At times on American Idol, she seemed to either be too conservative and embarrassed about her body, or slightly too daring (yellow dress). She has now managed to find the perfect balance and is dressing SPOT ON for each occasion. Way to go, Kat!

Katherine’s dress is a bit trashy to me. The plunging neckline and mega-short skirt are overkill.

If one could pull it off without overly exposing themselves (and it’s flattering to the body), then go for it!

knee length for me, but it just depends on what the individual is personally comfortable with and knows what looks best on HER…

I’ve never really been a fan of hers. It seems to me that she is always act like she’s “all that”, when she isn’t. I believe her choice of clothing is more of a shout to “look at me” rather than just trying to look good.

Katharine definitely looks AMAZING in hers… not to mention her fun spirit is radiating through. That girl is going to be a big star. The others don’t look bad, but they look semi frumpy.

Giant sequoias!??!!! Where?

Who is Katharine McPhee? Another wannabee celeb…The other two look great!

My first thought when I saw McPhee– stripper!!!
Nicky’s outfit is a little baggy, but I think it looks cute on her!
Jessica’s dress is adorable! She can pull anything off! It’s a little hard to see her figure because the background is black as well, but it looks like there is a little roushing (sp?) around the waist– which might cover a little of her figure but it’s still flattering without being OVEREXPOSED.
