I agree that she should not be wearing the super short diaper-style shorts. However, I do think compromise is in order. It is SO hard to find anything stylish right now that isn't super short. They're everywhere. I hope you can find some middle ground. A compromise would show that you're still open to her feelings and understand that those are what's "cool" right now but are firm about your rules and instilling self-respect.

It's your house, and ultimately your rules. If she's used to just doing what she wants or getting away with things you can't yield on this or you'll end up on a slippery slope awfully fast. If in your house it's the fingertip rule (which is usually the schools rule as well) then so be it, make it known, enforce it, and let her b**** and moan all she wants. I'd just take her short shorts back to her Mom's and grab her baseball shorts for her.
If my child has an opinion on what they want to wear I ultimately leave it up to them as long as the important bits are covered and there's no bigoted slogans. At school the dress code obviously trumps whatever they may prefer.
