Grammy Top Three Picks

As you all know the 2013 Grammy awards were presented last night at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.  I featured some of the red carpet looks from beauties 5’8 and taller on the Pretty Tall Style Facebook page, but here are my top three favorites of the night. I loved them all equally.

5’8 Rihanna looked absolutely amazing in red.  Classy looks good on her, as does bad girl, but I love that she is a style chameleon and can pretty much pull anything off that she chooses.

Pretty Tall Style Muse :: Maria Sharapova

Maria Sharapova is 6’2″, 25 years old, gorgeous and at the top of her game. She just won the French Open and with that win became the number one ranked women’s tennis player in the world.  She owns the tennis court using her long frame to cover those lines. She owns her height, choosing to rock sky-high heels and short dresses to show off her gorgeous gams. Another example of why tall girls rock!

Love Is In The Air

I really get a kick out of seeing tall people together.  They just seem to go together and compliment each other wonderfully.  When you see two tall people walking dow he street together it makes you take notice and you can’t help but to admire. These are some of my favorite couples.  Can’t get enough of them.  So do you have a favorite pairing?

President Obama 6’1″ and First Lady Michelle Obama 5’10.5″

“I love your style!” “Well, I love your style” hehehe

Prince William 6’3″ and Kate Middleton 5’10”

Pretty Tall Style Muse :: NeNe Leakes

The Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes is 5′ 10″ tall.  Not one to bite her tongue, she lets the world know what’s on her mind.  I have to admit that I’m not a big fan of the show, but I do love NeNe. It seems like NeNe has spread her wings, with a book, the apprentice and Glee.  Plus I love her confidence and the way she rocks her 5″ heels without hesitation.  What a tall girl can learn from NeNe is not to let your past (mistakes) define you and your future (you can grow from them), don’t be afraid to speak your mind and you don’t have to be a size “0” tall girl to have style, be confident in what you wear and who you are!

Pretty Tall Style Muse :: Queen Latifah

The Queen herself stands regal at 5′ 10″ tall. Actress, rapper, singer, executive producer and Cover Girl.  Her credits, her style, her confidence, her strength along with her cover girl smile make her a Pretty Tall Style Muse.  What can we tall girls learn from her: It’s okay to be a strong woman, be comfortable in your own skin, never take being disrespected or called out or your name as okay, that you can do anything you put your mind to, that tall girls can have some serious curves, that there is strength in unity, so tall girls unite! :)

Pretty Tall Style Muse :: Lisa Leslie

The amazingly talented and gorgeous Lisa Leslie stands tall at 6′ 5″.  The 39-year-old was the first woman ever, to dunk in a WNBA game. She was the WNBA MVP three times during her career and also has four olympic gold medals under her belt.  What we tall girls can learn from Mrs. Leslie-Lockwood is that tall is beautiful, yes some of us do play basketball and pretty darn well, it can be the catalyst to many great things, tall girls can find their tall prince charming too and live happily ever after in their heels. :)  She is definitely a great example of a tall girl who rocks!
