When super tall girls say they feel awkward for being so tall, I can completely relate. That’s because I belong to the other end of the spectrum. I am super short (just 60 inches!) so when I’m with people of average height, I try my best not to feel, well, awkward and out of place. It’s actually worse when you’re trying to pose for a photo with a group of people. When that happens, I cheat. I tiptoe. And yes, I do wear heels. But I’m a 3-inch-heel kind of girl, and we both know those 3 inches don’t really count.
Speaking of height, a statuesque Karlie Kloss was spotted attending the premiere of Serena in New York on Monday. For the occasion, the supermodel donned a tea-length patterned dress detailed with ruffles at the hem. But instead of teaming the dress with high heels, she kept things casual and comfy with a pair of pointed mary-jane flats.
The dress had vertical and horizontal stripes on them — a very unflattering combination — but because Karlie is skinny and, well, tall, she pulled it off with no issues — even with just flats on her feet.

I kind of envy this girl. As a model, you’re able to wear a lot of things without looking bad. How do you like the combination Karlie put together here, yay or nay? Would you wear her dress?
It’s from Prabal Gurung’s resort 2017 collection so you won’t find it in stores yet. Karlie’s pointed mary-jane flats, however, are available for the taking if you like the silhouette. They’re from Tabitha Simmons, and the style name is Hermione (yes, like Hermione from Harry Potter).

The Hermione flats feature pointed toes, slim straps across the vamps detailed with button closures, and ultra low stacked heels. The patent version above is currently on sale at Matches. For those looking for a cheaper alternative, you may consider these super sexy flats from Shoes of Pray, which retail at $210:
