You’d never guess that these celebrities are Petite!
Many stars you know are part of the petite crew. Stars like Salma Hayek, Hayden Panettiere, Katie Couric, Shakira, Eva Longoria, Ariana Grande, Kristen Chenoweth, and the list goes on. The petite size is considered to be 5’4″ or shorter.
It blew my mind when I learned this, because all of the ads in the magazines and TV shows make them appear much taller. Even magazines lie about the height of celebs. Elle magazine once stated that Victoria Beckem was 5’6″, when she is actually 5’4″. Though it’s only a couple of inches off, it definitely makes a difference, especially in the world of fashion. There’s no doubt that petite celebs rock the fashion industry.
Below are some petite celebrities using some style tricks to appear longer
- High Waisted Trousers
- Pointed toe heels
A pair of pointed toe stilettos should be in the closet of every petite woman. Having a pointed toe rather than an open-toe sandal or something with a round toe, will give the illusion of longer legs.
- High collars
Lengthen your frame by wearing a shirt/blouse with a higher collar. This slight detail makes your overall silhouette look taller. (Also as you can see, she’s wearing the pointed toe shoes to give her the full affect of looking much longer.)
Check out Forever 21 I’ve found that they have a great selection of high collard blouses.
