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.

Christian Louboutin Widens Spectrum with New Shades of Nude Heels


Christian Louboutin may be known for the red soles, but another color has brought the designer into headlines this month. Specifically, the shoe company has announced the release of multiple hues for “nude heels”, which have previously and globally been matched to white skin only.

The best message to come out of this story – one that’s long overdue – is that people of color can, on a wide scale, afford to spend $600 to $1,000 on a pair of high heels. The fact that it’s coming from one of the top designer high heel brands hopefully means that there will be a trickle down effect and this will be the new norm after some time.

Louboutin’s nude heels will come in five different shades that range from “fair blush” to “rich chestnut”.

Nude heels are a wardrobe staple, because they have a leg-lengthening effect, and they match just about anything. And now, women of all ethnicities can feel these benefits because they can get a pair to match their skin. Why this is just now happening in 2013 is beyond us, but we’re glad it is.

Not sure which color to pick? There’s even a Louboutin Shades app on the iTunes store.

How to Wear Dresses with Heels

 What do you make of a 16 year old wearing a leather jacket, a few piercings and blue dyed hair? A middle-aged blonde wearing a polo shirt and pleated slacks? Or how about a woman in a little black dress with bright red high heels?

Fashion is a statement that divides an individual from another in the most profound way. Fashion can speak volumes about a person, their lifestyle, personality, preferences, likes and dislikes and many a times the social status.

And when it comes down to fashion, everything matters: the right color, the right length and the most appropriate shoes. It goes without saying that shoes can make or break a dress. Choosing the right shoes for the right dress is like pairing wine with the right meal, it needs an acquired taste, experience and above all an extended palette.

You wouldn’t go to the gym wearing a pair of trainers with 4 inch heels would you? It is very important that you wear dresses with high heels that compliment and accentuate the entire look. There are generally four types of heels, high and low heels, platform heels, wedges and stilettos. All of them have their own advantages, disadvantages and individual presence that can help not only elevate you but elevate the entire look.

Dresses with Heels


Stilettos are undoubtedly one of the most sought after type of high heels when it comes to formal events. Stilettos can work with almost everything as long as you choose the right pair. Traditionally, stilettos have worked much better with long and voluminous full length dresses. However, these days, stilettos can also work with short dresses. You typically don't want to pair stilettos with short day dresses or shorts. You can pair stilettos with short formal glitzy dresses, (Beyonce-style) for clubbing, birthday parties etc. but not for day events. Stilettos can get quite uncomfortable so many prefer not to wear them if the event is more than a few hours long.

High/Low Heels

Where low heels can almost work with all silhouettes, sizes and dresses, including casual as well as formal wear, high heels have slightly more support than stilettos, so they can easily be worn throughout the day. Pumps are quite the rage these days, including the infamous nude LK Bennet’s that the Duchess of Cambridge cannot have enough of. You can pair heels and pumps with short dresses, casual jeans, pencil skirts and even formally, if you choose the right ones. You can wear dresses with high heels including peep-toe heels and pumps to work, casual or formal events.


Platforms are another style that looks good with almost anything. Platform heels are more on the funkier side, and yet can easily be pulled off with a short dress as much as a full length gown. Platform heels are a celebrity favorite; they offer the height and the stability to prevent those much-dreaded and publicized falls. If you are just starting out or are looking for fancier alternatives that at the same time offer stability, then opt for platforms.


Wedges are basically like flip-flops on heels. They are most preferably worn with casual summer dresses, to work or other daywear. Wedges make your legs appear longer, so they look much better with shorter hemlines.


In the end, there are no hard and fast rules, so if you find a good pair of stilettos that go well with hot pants, then there is no fashion police that can stop you from doing so. The one rule that you should keep in mind, though, is to wear dresses with high heels that compliment each other well from a color and style standpoint.
