Famous Tall Women who Flaunt Stylish Heels


Just because you are tall doesn't mean that you have to miss out on taking advantage of one of the privileges of being a woman-wearing high heels!  Who out of us doesn't want to look and feel sexy on a night out on the town? If you are already tall adding a couple of inches (or six) only emphasises the fabulousness of your frame. Why look dowdy pairing flats with a fabulous evening outfit?

There are plenty of examples of how to pull it off in the celebrity circuit.  These ladies cause a stir wherever they go, demanding attention and influencing almost everyone around them. Take your cues from some of the tallest and most beautiful women in the world...

Michelle Obama

The first Lady of the United States of America has been voted as one of the most stylish people in the world. Her sense of fashion is so good that no matter where she goes, one can’t help but take a second look. The 5’11” Mrs. Obama has been known to wear heels as well, her most recent being a couple of days ago at the Democratic National Convention. Sporting bright heels that matched her one-of-a-kind dress, she went on to the stage to deliver a powerful speech while looking absolutely amazing, which is pretty difficult.

Carla Bruni-Sarkozy

This 5’9”, already famous singer, songwriter and model shot to the sky when she married the then President of the French Republic, Nicolas Sarkozy back in 2008. She was all over the news then and along with her famous kitten heels, was an inspiration to many who went for her style soon afterward.

Maria Sharapova

Probably the tallest woman on this list, at 6’2”, tennis star Maria Sharapova still continues to dominate her opposition every time she steps into a court. The height advantage she has on most players has seen her win 4 Grand Slams and more than five years down the line, is still one of the top players. Her use of heels at award ceremonies and other events is also something to watch for.

Princess Diana

Who can forget one of the most influential women on that planet? Princess Diana was known for her elegance, beauty and sense of fashion. Up until the late 90s before her tragic death at the tender age of 37, the 5’10” Princess was a style icon along with her slender heels.

Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts has been in the film industry for quite some time but it wasn’t until ‘Pretty Woman’ that she was deemed a Hollywood star. The movie grossed a whopping $464 million worldwide and the trademark heels the 5’9” beauty wore in the movie were instantly made iconic. The actress continues to wear heels to this day.
