I always get amused when Beauty Queens or beauty contestants are caught in the middle of a sudden photo op while wearing only flats or rubber shoes or worse, with bare feet. The quick instinct is to tiptoe their stand till the camera snaps and hope that the frame won’t include anything from the ankles down.
Balance is super important. And you’ll be amazed at how these ladies have already mastered the art of tiptoeing their way to a taller look when the need calls for them to do so. In fact, I’ve seen more than a few among our Binibinis who even do tiptoes while already wearing their five-inch platform heels. Talk about standing head and shoulders above the rest.
And a few of this blog’s readers and followers whom I’ve met recently or way before always acted surprised upon seeing that I am actually tall (5’9″ without heels!). They thought that I only measured 5’4″ after seeing my photos with the ladies.
Well, now you know the secret aside from wearing skyscraper heels. They are so used to giving themselves the extra lift, while I remain standing flat on the ground. ;-)
