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.

Mariah wore 7″ heels on her ” adventures of MiMi ” tour and she ran in them so ya she can walk in those heels … Maybe she had some drinks since she was at a club and needed a little help …

Ok ppl! They’re technically not as High as they seem as the front of the shoe are also on a platform therefore they’re not as difficult to walk in as u would first expect!
I love the shoe though! FYI mariah always holds the hands of her security gaurds its not because she cant walk in the heels! Im thinking that a woman who walks in heals all the time other than barefoot would be able to walk in heels by now! lol!
Oh btw so what if Posh wore the same shoes first! Do u not wear the same clothes that u bought from a high street store as any other tom dick or harry!

If half you twits that even replied realized this is typical shoes for Mariah, she has said millions of times she basically walks around on her tiptoes even when she is not wearing heels, and she always has from a child to now. As far as her looking like a stripper that is just pure hate. Lastly if you knew anything about Mariah you’d know her Body guards often walk with her within arms reach or even escorting her by her hand. I would think Mariah is well practiced walking in heels. So to all the “ugly” girls spewing hate, get over it and yourself.

Hell yeah, no problem i can even run in them :P i already had shoes with a 160mm heal, it’s about being a fabolous diva and as a former dragqueen i am :)
All those girls from ANTM can eat their hearts out (accept for Eva of course, i luv her, runway diva to the max) :P:P:P

I would absolutely wear those gorgeous heels! They are so HOT! They fit Mariah’s style perfectly.

I haven’t ever tried to walk in ones exactly like that. But to look that good, its worth the risk of falling on my ass.
