Famous Women : Size Tall

Michelle Obama
At 5'10", Michelle Obama is
the latest to join the ranks
of tall and famous women.

Tall is sexy, powerful, and eye-catching.

It's small wonder, then, that fashion designers call for the tallest and most willowy models available to show off their latest lines. (Aspiring to a modeling career? Find another line of work if you don't stand at least 5"9".)

So it still amazes many tall women that larger sizes at local shops are a tall order, even when the industry says that THEY are the paragon of beauty.

Fact is, the average of height of American women is 5'4". As a result, that's the majority of women's size clothing manufacturers churn out year after year.

Even into adulthood, many tall women remember the wisecracks from schoolmates or siblings about their height. Later, they could either opt for a role as slouching wallflower (in flat shoes) or rise above it all in 3-inch heels by learning to wisecrack back: "Oh, I'm sorry...I didn't see you down there!"

Today, besides pursuing a career on the catwalk, there is a growing list of famous tall women who aren't afraid of getting noticed. They include actresses, pop stars, and sport champions, along with the latest to join their ranks - a woman who happens to have the ear of the new President of the United States - Michelle Obama, who stands 5' 10".

Here's only a partial list of famous women who also stand out from the crowd:

  • Wimbledon Champ Venus Williams 6'1

  • 2007 American Idol winner Jordin Sparks 6'0"

  • Macy Gray 6'0"

  • Geena Davis 6'0"

  • Elle MacPherson 6'0"

  • Brooke Shields 6'0"

  • Uma Thurman 6'0"

  • Sigourney Weaver 5'11"

  • Melania Knauss (Mrs. Donald Trump) 5'11"

  • Actress Tilda Swinton 5'11"

  • Model / Actress Tyra Banks 5'11"

  • Model / Actress Gisele Bundchen 5'11"

  • Actress Joan Allen 5'10"

  • Model and Top Chef host Padma Lakshmi 5'10"

  • Anjelica Huston 5'10"

  • Liv Tyler 5'10"

Of course, not every tall woman was born to be a sports champ or Hollywood star, or even the wife of a president, but you can take a page from their playbook. Strut your stuff and be proud that you're not "one size fits all" — not because of your physical stature but simply because of who you are.
