Mandy Moore's dress was so short when she appeared on ELLEN DeGENERES' chat show this morning (08JAN04), the comedienne gave the teen pop star a blanket to cover up.

The 19-year-old CANDY singer, who appeared on the show to promote her new movie Chasing Liberty, drew a look of astonishment from DeGeneres when she stepped out in a black form-fitting frock, which sat just below her thighs.

DeGeneres exclaimed, "You must be freezing! This is actually the most skin I've seen on you."

Moore admitted, "It's a little chilly in here. I should've worn the sweater as well but I'll know for next time. No one warned me!"

Generous DeGeneres quickly asked for a red blanket to be brought out from the backstage area, which Moore draped over her

shapely legs for the remainder of the interview.
