Did you know that this week is “Stand Tall Week”? The recent yearly event has been around since 2010 and it was created to encourage tall girls to embrace their height. Sometimes, being on the tall side can be a bummer. It can be harder to find clothes that fit and all that height can intimidate lesser men. Look on the bright side though, it helps you weed out guys with no self confidence that are afraid to date a girl taller than them. Also, you NEED to be tall for modeling and plenty of other talented celebs are tall too. Here are some of our favorites.
Gisele Bundchen and MICHAEL Michael Kors York
Most supermodels start at 5′8″ so they’re all tall, but Brazilian born model Gisele Bundchen is especially tall. At 5′11″ she is nearly 3 inches taller than some of her fellow models including Bar Refaeli. Here she looks absolutely stunning in a sleek white dress at the U.N.’s environmental awards in New York City. She tops off the look with black peep toe stiletto’s similar to the MICHAEL Michael Kors York. These Michael Kors heels make for a perfect patent pump. To be wearing heels that high, she’s clearly proud of her height – as she should be.
Mandy Moore and Kate Spade Heather
Mandy Moore was one in a trio of chart topping young pop stars in the late 90’s/early 2000’s. Her fellow singing sensations Britney and Christina are just over five feet but Mandy is 5′10″. Here, all grown up, she looks ladylike and timeless in a mix of modern and classic pieces including Audrey Hepburn favorites, cropped skinny trousers and ballet flats like the Kate Spade Heather. These gorgeous Kate Spade flats, very similar to Mandy’s have a vintage vibe with their glam cap toe. We’re pretty sure Mandy’s pants are supposed to be cropped, but if you have a pair that’s gotten too short, consider giving Mandy’s look a try.
Uma Thurman and Steve Madden Glaare
Actress Uma Thurman of “Kill Bill” fame is the tallest on this list coming in at six feet. Here she is spotted at the “Diamonds Are Girls Best Friend” event during the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival. She shines in a layered lace dress and sparkly t-strap sandals, similar to the Steve Madden Glaare. These gorgeous pewter sandals by Steve Madden add a girly/glam shine to any look without being over the top. There is also a more colorful option available which we absolutely love.
