3 Petite Celebrities That Rock Style At 5'0 Tall.

posted on: 1/2/12


If you've been a long time reader of my blog, you know that I am petite. I really don't realize it until pictures, like the one above are taken. I would like to note that I am wearing 3 inch heels. I have tall friends. 

Anyways, the past few months I've been feeling the need to write a blog post with examples of petite ladies and the way they dress. Even though I love Miranda Kerr's style, I am not that tall or that skinny - so why would I want to compare myself to her? That's why I found 3 ladies, who are not only 5'0 tall, have very different body types, but they also rock mad style. 


America Ferrera dresses her for her body. I have a lot in common with her curvaceousness, that I always look forward to seeing how she highlights it.  When you're petite, curves are something that can get the best of you. If you let it. Just because you're petite it doesn't mean that you don't come in athletic sizes. You just have to learn how to wear clothes that flatter you're figure.



Christina Ricci. She's a gorgeous girl, who's body changes as much as her style. It's been amazing to watch her grow into her look and embrace her petiteness. One thing is for sure, she's not afraid to take risks or experiment. When you have a petite body, you really don't know what will look good on you until you try it on.


Kristen Bell. I didn't realize she was 5'0 until I started writing this blog. She carries herself like she's at least 5'5. Being a petite girl means showing as much leg as you can, in a appropriate way of course. It means having fun with heels, hem lengths and walking tall.

I chose these 3 ladies because they couldn't be more different in body shape and in style, but at the end of the day they are all the same height.

Alix,

I know exactly how you feel. I'm petite, too and finding outfits are always a nightmare because the curves sometimes don't fit the dress just right. And then finding shoes, for me at least, is always worse... Being a size 5 narrow. I feel like those shoes are nonexistent.

Great blog post by the way. I'm obsessed with Kirsten Bell's style. Rachel Bilson is pretty petite too, not a 5'0, but pretty comparable to most petite celebs.

Cheers,

Amanda

That top photo with your friends' heads cut off is classic. I'm 5'2" and I look to the same icons you've mentioned here. Great post!
