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?

I think they all look great!! I personally wear a skirt that short because I don’t have the body to pull it off.

McPhee should invest in a longer dress or she is going to pull a britney!!!

When I was McPhee’s age I was wearing sexy clothing all the time! McPhee is very pretty!
The point of this type of dress, is to show off what you’ve got, how you carry yourself in a revealing dress, and to see how many guys find you sexy and want your #!
Nicky is not pretty, the only reason why she ever gets photographed is because she’s Paris’ sister!
And, Jessica’s dress……..I am sorry but, it’s not THAT short it’s just above her knees and it looks annoying to wear!

And……….Where are the “Gaint Sequoias O’Wryly?”
I know they are big trees in California.

I’d go to about knee length therefore I’d have not much to worry about my panties showing when I sit… Jesica Biel looks the most classy out of the three.

Katharine’s dress looks like it came from 541 or Rave. You can be young, have a hott body, and still dress in fabulous clothes.

I go mid-thigh with my miniskirts. I really don’t think any of them are doing it right. When wearing a miniskirt the legs should be the main focus.

I think all three of the girls look fine although I’m not too fond of Nicky Hilton’s dress. And in response to O’Wryly’s comment about Kat’s legs being the “size of sequioas”, it’s because of people like YOU that so many girls have eating disorders. Katherine has a great body!

Nicola on

Kat’s is much too short. This look is sleezy, Jessical Biel looks classy and has a classy attitude too !!

Shannon on

Personally, Katharine’s dress looks downright trashy. And there’s nothing spectacular about her legs to be wearing a skirt that short, either. Plus, this photo captures a really idiotic-looking facial expression for her. *Shudders*
