Would You Wear Mariah Carey's Super High Heels?

10/18/2007 at 06:00 AM ET


Mariah Carey has an established over-the-top style — but even knowing her love for big hair, slinky dresses and high heels, our jaws still dropped over the shoes she wore out to dinner in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. The singer (and new perfume maven) headed out to eat in a pair of Giambattista Valli platform heels that have a staggering five and a half inch heel on them (135 mm, to be exact). We cannot imagine being able to take one step in a pair of heels that high, much less spend a whole night out in them (although it does look like Mariah is getting a little help)! But maybe we’re just wimpy so we want to know what you think! Tell us: Would you wear Mariah’s high heels? Could you walk in them?

Love Mariah’s jeans instead? Get a pair of her J BRAND “914” cigarette leg jeans in Ink, $158 at jbrandjeans.com.

I agree with Lisa. With out the extra inch/inch&1/2 that the platform adds they might be cute, and maybe Mariah could walk with out the help of her bodyguard.

What is the point of torturing yourself if you need help to walk? Come on now…be real!

Oh sure if I want to break my legs or get aching feet for the rest of my life. Who cares about comfort when you can add several inches to your height that probably you will be the only one to notice?

I can barely walk in low heels, I am so used to sneakers, that I only wear heals when absolutely necessary. But Mariah Carey is very used to high heels, when she’s at home and she’s bare foot, she walks on her tippy toes.

Mariah looks great in them!

Hell yes! Those shoes are about $1,200 bucks. If I could afford them, I’d rock the hell out of them.

I’d be like Britney and those brown boots she always wears!

If I had $1200 to spend on shoes, I’d spend it on something lot more tasteful, like Manolo Blahniks. Sorry, I don’t do “stripper”.

I personally would not be able to walk in heels that high. Mariah is already 5’9 and 5 inch heels would make her well over 6 feet tall.. why does she want to be so tall in the first place?

Jen on

Hell Yeah I would those shoes are beautiful, I would rock that whole outfit it love it.
