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 isn’t the only one to sport the “stripper” heel, as you like to call it, many other actresses wear the platform shoes as well, with a towering heel, even to red carpet events, so you might as well call them out on wearing “stripper” heels too. Also, a lot of people wear platforms, but that doesn’t make them strippers, now does it? Also Giambattista Valli is very tasteful.

Anyway, sure I’d wear these shoes. I’m used to 6″ stilleto heels and boots, so 5 1/2″ isn’t nothing for me to wear. Plus I love the platform shoe. I like the tan/cream and black shoes better then the ones Mariah’s wearing. I don’t think the black and white platforms she’s wearing goes with her jeans all that well. Although I can understand the concept, because she probably wanted to match them with her cropped leather jacket and shirt. I think the tan/cream and black shoes would have looked better with her outfit. I must say, Mariah looks very nice here. She looks very understated here, compared to what she usually wears when she goes out to dinner or something. Her hair color looks different to me {I like it}. Maybe a shade darker??? or maybe not.

I would absolutely wear these shoes, they are absolutely gorgeous. And, Mariah can pull just about anything off, although the jeans with them don’t quite make for a good match. But the shoes… Ahhhhhhhhhhh, STUNNING!!

I definetly couldnt walk in those 5 1/2 inch heels! i cant even walk two inch heels!

I don’t why she always has to be on very high heels! I don’t like them on her. She doesn’t know how to walk on them. I would wear them because they would look better on my long legs.

Um……. no I wouldn’t wear them, but, I am a Mariah Carey fan!!!! LOL!! :D

I would never be able to wear shoes like that, just for the simple fact that I trip over my own feet in tennis shoe’s.
