Tall Fashion Models & Celebrities – I Could Care Less What They Are Wearing!

So you may be shocked at that title! Why? Because for the most part I could really care less what tall fashion models and tall celebrities are wearing! I know, this is a tall blog and I should be following them with a cult-like watch, but really I think it’s a big waste of my time. Why? For the most part I believe the clothing they are wearing is unattainable for tall people and here is my reasoning.
  • Most tall fashion models and tall celebrities have their clothing specially designed for their bodies. Yes, it fits them perfectly! But, on the rare occasion that the clothing is re-created for the general public, it is made into main stream sizes which means that suddenly the item is no longer made in tall sizes. There’s rarely an instance I could possibly find the same items in my size in a store.
  • On the off-chance I could find the item in the store, it is normally so expensive that my chances of buying it are slim to none. For example – what occasion would I ever wear an Oscar type gown? I’m a normal lady raising a family. I will never attend the Oscars or be invited to “The White House.” So I will never, ever need a celebrity gown.
  • Many tall celebrities and tall fashion models really aren’t that tall! I am 6’1″ in height, so if I’m trying to dress like a model who is 5’9″ tall, their clothing really isn’t going to fit me very well.
  • The amount of frustration I would encounter trying to emulate the wardrobes of tall celebrities and tall models is not worth my time.

On the other hand, I enjoy looking at the latest trends and enjoy dressing stylish. But, this means that I have to tweak the styles to look good on my tall frame. It works much better for me to purchase timeless styles that are affordable and attainable. I can easily follow many of the trends by changing out my accessories.

As a result, Tall Clothing Mall and our blogs will not feature tall models and tall celebrities on a regular basis. I would much rather spotlight tall people doing extra-ordinary things that make the world a better place as well as tall clothing that we can afford and attain.

I’d love to hear your opinion on this matter. Also, if you know of a tall person that is making a difference in the world, I’d love to feature them here.

Custom Made Ski Pants, Coats, Jackets & More

custom made ski pants and custom made clothing for tall people

While looking for resources for my blog post on “Where to Shop If You are an Extra Tall Woman“, I found a new resource.
Beyond Clothing makes custom made ski pants, coats, jackets, waterproof pants and more! I know these are winter items, so it may not help you out this year, but perhaps this will help you next year. These items can be customized with your inseam length and are made proportional to your height. Most items are made for both women and men.
