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

Coco, Thanks. I don’t watch MTV or any shows on there no wonder i didn’t know of her.

nikkie on

she is definally cute and i love her tan tone. I just think she gets too much media time lately.

jessica on

I don’t like the outfit, but Vanessa is not fat. You people who are saying she is are either crazy or jealous. Most likely both. She is very pretty, the outfit just isn’t flattering.

SJM on

Do I see Nick Lachey knocking on your doors?? Doubt it. It’s always the uglies that are sooo critical. haha. Thanks for making me laugh.

SA on

ARE U LADIES ACTUALLY STILL TALKING ABOUT HER SHORTS?/????????????

lucia on

Vanessa is a really pretty girl. Unfortunately this shot of her isn’t so great. In all other photos she looks thin and really pretty.
Jessica is very pretty too, but I gotta say she’s looking totally chubby lately.

lizz on

i think this she looks fine in the shorts- but what has she ever done other then win beuty pagents and host shows oh yeah and date nick lachey- half the time i think the only reason magazines talk about her is because of her boyfriend.
