Heel to Toe
5 of The Highest Heels Ever Worn

High heels are a fashion essential, and they seem to be getting higher by the day. Gone are the days when the highest heels and stilettos were limited to 4-5 inches; today these are considered standard, with women moving up to 6, 7, 8 and even 18 ½ inches in some rare cases. If you thought you weren’t ready to go above 3 inches yet, then it is about time that you checked these famous designers and celebrities out who have taken high heels to a whole new level, and have the recognition of wearing the highest heels ever.


Lady Gaga is very close to becoming the ambassador for extreme high heels shoes. A complete look not only consists of wearing the right dress, the right hair and makeup but also wearing the perfect shoes... and in Lady Gaga’s case, the latter takes on epic proportions. There are numerous high heels to Lady Gaga’s credit, including the crystallized heels she wore to the 2010 Grammy awards, the 10-inch Alexander Mcqueen snake skin ankle breakers she wore to the MTV VMA’s 2010 and not to forget the sky-high heel-less heels. But the highest heels that she has worn so far have been the 24-inch heels she wore to the CFDA Fashion Awards.

It is another story altogether when a super model falls-that even on the runway. But that is exactly what happened when Naomi Campbell dared to don 10 inch mock croc platforms on the runway in 1999. Well, who knew times would change so much that the 10 inch platforms will become the norm, but have to give her brownie points for trying it back in the day.

The Mcqueen house has become one of the most daringly practical names in the fashion industry. Whether it was the man himself, or Sarah Burton now, their collections are whacky, practical and always in demand. And that has, over the years, only encouraged them to express their creativity. And the 12-inch high heels that Heidi Klum wore on the Mcqueen Fall 2009 runway showcasing the extreme high heel shoes are yet another evidence of their objective to offer wearable extreme fashion.

Taylor Momsen is known for a lot of things. From gaining worldwide popularity due to her twisted character in Gossip Girl to becoming a teenage icon, she has been evolving in more ways than one. And she obviously has no intentions of slowing down. She wore platform heels that had a small opening and title "tips", and a dollar bill on the inside. Where other celebrities were pulling fashion off, she went ahead and pretty much made these impractical heels practical!

You cannot talk about the highest heels without mentioning the ones that made it to the Guinness book of World Records. The highest heeled shoes commercially available, according to the famed recordkeeping establishment, are the 20 inch platform boots created by the Indian designer James Syiemiong.

These are some of the highest heels ever created, and with stars like Lady Gaga and Taylor Momsen expressing their individuality in every way they can, the sky is the limit. While these feats of the human foot are more than likely to be attention-grabbing schemes, there is no doubt that as the heel grows, the comfort level shrinks and the price tag goes up. Be sure to use some form of high heel cover to keep your fashion investments looking as good as the day you bought them.

5 Favorite Movie Clips of Women Helping Women

Have you ever watched a film with a lead female character or two and enjoyed it so much that at the very end you felt a little bit…emotional? And has this feeling perhaps led you to think, “I need to watch this again with (insert BFF’s name here) and I need to call her RIGHT NOW and tell her all about it”?

It happens. It happens and it doesn’t have anything to do with quantifiable evidence. A feel-good-about-the-sisterhood movie might not have won any Oscars or stars or thumbs up, but it can make you feel lucky to have your girlfriends and it might make you want to be a better one.

A strong group of girlfriends is like having a pot of gold and it’s always a delight to see that magic happen on the big screen (or even the little screen if you're anything like me in college).

Here’s a very short list, in somewhat chronological order, of our favorite movies featuring women helping women. 

1. Thelma & Louise (1991)

    Iconic; Thelma & Louise is what every woman thinks of when she thinks of films about women helping women. World-weary Louise helps doe-eyed Thelma out of uncomfortable man situations while fleeing to Mexico in a convertible mustang. Their decision-making, how the stakes get higher and higher, the scenery and that soundtrack! This film surpasses the term chick flick and is more a spiritual thriller with some seriously young Brad Pitt eye-candy thrown in. Best movie ending ever. I’d probably floor it off a cliff if Harvey Keitel was chasing me.

    2. Steel Magnolias (1989)

    Another one not to miss, I think of this film as paving the way for Thelma & Louise. A high-voltage cast of southern women see their friend's (Sally Field) daughter (Julia Roberts) marry and then die a tragic death. The life challenges they face together and the way these old and new friends communicate is so subtle and sensitive it is a good friendship lesson to us all. Full of excellent one-liners and killer scenes (armadillo cake anyone?), this is a woman's classic.

    3. Practical Magic (1998)

    Okay, this didn’t get many stars, not many good reviews or any thumbs up. There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of it... but it’s fun to watch with your girlfriends anyway. The basic plot is that two sister witches have been cursed upon. The curse entails that the men they fall in love with will die an early death. They also drink piña coladas and have dance parties in the middle of the night. Need I say more? Goran Visnjic -- Dr. Luka from ER, hello! (that’s who put Croatia on the map for me) -- is the swarthy bad guy. The sisters have to work together to exorcise them out of their lives. Maybe not technically a classic, but a fun watch, especially around Halloween.

    4. Sex in the City-Movie #1 (2008)

    This could not be left out. Like it or not, Sex in the City is the TV series of our generation that taught women to speak to each on another level. The movie features the characters we all know and scenes that we’ve all been through before, packing up and moving, escaping from the love of your life. Buying your wedding dress at a vintage store and then ditching your penthouse -- oh, wait-that would NEVER happen. Regardless of reality these are four friends that stick together through the best of times and the worst of times.

    5. Bridesmaids (2011)

    Bridesmaids is a great example of women helping women and the dark jealous resentment that some women have the capacity to harbor. This is a film about two frenemies planning their friend’s wedding. Lots of funny and tragic things happen. Actually, many tragic things happen. However the grand finale is the wedding scene featuring the band Wilson Phillips singing “Hold On”, which is an awesome way to show the women had united.

    Why We Love Films About Women Helping Women

    A few themes stood out in compiling this list: tragedy, bonding, sensitivity and above all, a sense of humor. Leading lady characters carry a depth and grace that isn’t often seen in their male counterparts, and the traits of depth and grace are exemplified when they are helping each other.

    Obviously, this is an abbreviated list, but there are so many! Please share your favorites and explain why.

    Maybe You Shouldn't Wear Heels to Disneyland

    As much as we love our heels, as much as putting our "best foot forward" is one of our vital beliefs here at Clickless, as much as being fashionable matters, it might not always be appropriate. If you're walking Disneyland with your family all day long, your feet may get a little uncomfortable. 

    Take this endearing clip from Modern Family wherein Gloria refuses to sacrifice her heels to meet Mickey, Minnie and the gang. She is clearly in pain, and it's affecting her mood. In a heartwarming moment, Jay brings her a pair of slipper heels from the Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique, and she is walking on air. 

    So hear this, dear readers. Fashion is always first, but there is a time and a place. We can't help but think if Gloria had been wearing her Clickless she may have had less to complain about. At the very least, she would be able to protect those little babies from the damage of walking around on harsh surfaces all day.

    Oscar Shoes: Our Picks for 2014's Leading Ladies

    This Sunday marks the 86th annual Academy Awards, better known as The Oscars. We can't wait to sit around with our best girlfriends sipping champaign, eating finger foods and critiquing the fashions. At this point, we have no idea what Oscar's leading ladies will be wearing. Only the real insiders are privy to that info. But what we do know is what's on the cutting edge of shoe fashion, and if we had our way, all outfits would start and end with the shoe. So, without further ado, we give you our picks for the 2014 Oscar shoes.

    The Nominees and the Shoes We'd Choose

    Actress in a Leading Role

    Amy Adams, American Hustle

    We've loved Amy Adams in former roles like Enchanted and The Muppets, but American Hustle is a different character for her. In it, she is enlisted in a bribery scam where the would-be stripper from New Mexico plays an British upper-class woman. She does a fabulous job playing a dynamic role, which is why we've selected these dynamic, metallic chain-fringe sandals from Gianvito Rossi. 

    Cate Blanchett, Blue Jasmine

    A "victim" of a financial scandal involving her former husband, Jasmine (played by Blanchett) finds herself suddenly broke but in denial. She takes a flight, first class no doubt, to her sister's house in San Francisco, still clinging to her expensive rings and high fashion. For her character, we chose this snakeskin pointed toe pump from Alexander McQueen.

    Sandra Bullock, Gravity

    In a telescope space mission, Sandra Bullock's character plays a scientific engineer who, along with co-star George Clooney, is the victim of a terrible circumstance. After debris destroys their space shuttle, we find the two floating in space in a dazzling spectacle of filmography. One of the critiques of the film is that Bullock's hair doesn't free float as it really would in space, and for that reason we've selected these gravity-defying six-inch platform pump from Christian Louboutin.

    Judi Dench, Philomena

    Based on a true story, Philomena is about an elderly Irish woman, played by Dame Judi Dench, searching for the son she gave up for adoption as a teen. She plays a common middle class woman with former ties to the convent and a very utilitarian wardrobe. That's why we've chosen this staple black low-heel pump from Christian Louboutin. 

    Judi Dench Oscar Shoes

    Meryl Streep, August: Osage County

    Among a star-studded cast, Meryl Streep plays the matriarch of a family who has reconvened in Oklahoma to pay respects to the patriarch of the family, who died in an apparent suicide. Quarrels and revelations come into play in the dark comedy. For her nomination, we chose these snake-inspired numbers from Giuseppe Zanotti.

    This Week in Heels: May 23, 2013

    It was a week filled with celebrity happenings, like the Cannes Film Festival and a plethora of premieres, finales and upfronts. With a spring in their step and a twinkle in their eyes, fashionistas are continuing to lead the rest of us on the journey to their fashion haven, where everybody wears great shoes and flats aren't allowed.

    Nicole Kidman downright sprouted like a tulip in the spring wearing this floral, strapless number from Christian Dior to the Cannes Film Festival this week. Her heels were a lovely shade of pink with a hint of orange, also from Dior.

     On the tails of her announcement that she'll be authoring her first book, Lea Michele attended the Fox Upfronts event this week donning an off-the-shoulder pink number. Michele looked quite summery with her olive tan, lighter hair, and mettalic pointed toed stilettos.

    Minka Kelly made the LBD pop with a blue pair of Jimmy Choo's at the Aqua Star Pool redesign launch at the Beverly Hilton in L.A.

     Zoe Saldana was in New York this week premiering her film Star Wars: Into Darkness. She stopped by the Sirius XM headquarters wearing this printed suit from Antonio Berardi. What we love most about the ensemble is her pairing with the Christian Louboutin Paulina Pumps.

    ABC's show Scandal is all the rage right now, and it capped off its second season with the finale party this week. Actress Kerry Washington sported a bowed number from Giambattista Valli and looked flawless. She matched the dress with a rosy-nude pair of platform heels from Lanvin.
