A List Petite Celebs

1. Natalie Portman (5’2″)  This petite celebrity wins the Triple Crown of entertainment!  She swept through the Golden Globes, the SAG awards and took the Oscar for her roll as Nina, an obsessive ballerina, in Darren Aaronofsky’s latest film “Black Swan”.  Portman will have three films released this year, including “No Strings Attached” starring Ashton Kutcher in theaters now,  ”Your Highness” and “Thor” coming later this year.  Plus, coming this summer a new baby and a maybe wedding!

2. Sandra Bullock (5’4″) This petite actress is one of the highest income earners in the business.  For the movie “The Blind Side” she earned $20,000,000.  In 2002 she was paid $15,000,000 for “Murder By Numbers.”  Her next movie in production  ”Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close” is set to be released in 2012, we are sure she will make a hefty sum!

3. Reese Witherspoon (5’0″) Recently this petite celebrity has become more known in the tabloids for her love life and now with her engagement to CAA agent maybe she can get back to the business of making movies!   Witherspoon is likely the highest paid actress in the business,  she was reportedly paid 15 million for  ”Legally Blonde” and its sequel, a whopping 12.5 million for “Sweet Home Alabama,” another 14 million for “Four Christmases,” 15 million for “Just Like Heaven” and 15 million for “Walk the Line,” and 14 million for “How Do You Know,” starring Owen Wilson and Paul Rudd. Wow, now you can do the math, it pays to be petite!

4. Jennifer Aniston (5’4″) The pretty petite Jennifer Aniston had several films released in 2010, the latest is “Just Go With It,” starring Adam Sandler.  Aniston recently returned back home from Georgia, after filming ” Wanderlust” to be released (2011).  Friends Star Jennifer Aniston, told Rolling Stone magazine in 1999 that ”I’m 110, I’ve been 130, and I’m 5’5″.”  There was some silly rumour a while ago that Jennifer went on a special exercise program and gained 2 inches in height… I’d love to know where that rumor originated!  She’s also said in an interview she’s ’5ft 4″ and 3/4″.

5. Sarah Jessica Parker (5’2″) The petite fashionista is a clothing designer for Halston!  Perhaps she is best known for being Carrie Bradshaw in “Sex in the City,” both in television and on the big screen.  She has also starred with Matthew McConaughey in “Failure to Launch” and in “The Family Stone,” with Luke Wilson.

6. Mila Kunis (5’2″) This petite bombshell’s latest breakout role in “Black Swan” as “Lily” has landed her on the cover of W Magazine!  Before this her voice was more recognizable than her face, as the voice of Meg Griffin on “The Family Guy.”   Mila Kunis has starred in “Max Payne,” “Forgetting Sarah Marshall” and her memorable role as Jackie on “That 70’s Show.”  We suspect she is now on the fast track to major Hollywood success and stardom!

7. Ellen Page (5’0″) The Canadian born petite actress and Oscar-nominee for her breakout role in “Juno” playing an eccentric teenager who finds herself pregnant. This rising petite starlet has been in awarding winning roles in the movies “X-Men: The Last Stand” and “Inception,” starring Leonardo Di Caprio!

8. Amanda Seyfried (5’2″) This petite dynamo has proven she can hold her own alongside mega star Meryl Streep in the movie musical “Mama Mia.”  Her recent film repertoire includes ”Letters to Juliet,” “Dear John” and “Jennifer’s Body.”  Her latest movie is set to release this March “Red Riding Hood,” also starring Gary Oldham, Shiloh Fernandez, Lukas Haas and Virginia Madsen. We can expect to be seeing a whole lot more from this fresh-faced petite!

9.Halle Berry (5’4″) This half African and half Italian American petite celebrity has blazed a new trail  for actresses.  She was the first and only female African American actress to win an Academy award in 2001 for her role as Leticia Musgrove the love interest of a racist prison guard who had executed her husband while in jail in the movie”Monster’s Ball” starring Billy Bob Thornton.  Berry has come a long way from her start in beauty pageants in the 80′s, she simply saw pageants and modeling as a way to become an actress.  ” I never wanted to be a model. My modeling career was nothing but a stepping stone to my acting career and that’s all I ever saw it as. A pointless rock in the river that has to be stepped on in order to get to the meaningful oasis of acting.”  Berry has starred box many box office thrillers from: “X-Men,” “Die Another Day,” “Perfect Stranger,” and “Gothika,” her break through role was in Spike Lee’s “Jungle Fever.”

10. Salma Hayek (5’2″)  Quote: “I act tall!…But look how short I am…I can’t even act to be tall. I’m 5’2′. I can’t even create the illusion that I am tall!

This beautiful petite celebrity shines at any age, now 47, she’s is best known her showing off her best assets in Wild, Wild West,” “Desperado,” Mexico,” and “Fools Rush In.”
Hayek also produced and starred in the movie “Frida” and the movie won two Oscars!  She has a new movie release coming later this year, the “Americano,” look out for it!   Written by: Ann Lauren

Summer Shorts for Petites

We all want to show off our legs, especially if they are shapely and well toned.  Wearing the right style will go a long way to flattering your Spring and Summer look.  Choosing shorts can prove a contest in itself for petite women.  It’s important to remember shorts should be fitted, not overly loose, have clean details and a classic style.  Wearing an outfit all within the same color wheel will also give you a long, lean silhouette.  Topping off your entire look with wedgies or a heel will pay tribute to your legs and create an illusion of lengthening the leg.

Women who are short always wonder about wearing a Capri style pant during the warm months as well.  This style can prove tricky but also flattering on the right figure shape.  Always wear shoes the same color of your pant.  If you’re shorter than 5’2” have heavy calves or thick ankles, this style is not a good choice for you.  If you have shapely legs and over 5”2”, make sure you match your shoes with your hemline color to pull off the look with class.

Cuffed shorts ~ this is also a very fashionable style for petite women. Cuffed shorts will make your legs appear longer and are very stylish. Just make sure that the cuffed shorts aren't too tight. They should be loose from your skin so you can move around in them comfortably.

Bermuda shorts  ~ are a definite no as they fall below the knee and will make you look stumpier.

Above Knee to Mid-thigh  ~ are the most complimentary lengths for petites because they help to elongate your look beautifully. 

Short shorts ~  will make you look even shorter and inappropriate if your butt cheeks are exposed. So, think about the message you are sending as well.   However, if you have a flawless figure and in great shape, you’re one of the luckier few to pull them off.

Cargo ~ stay away.  Stay far, far away.

Petite Hats For Petite Women

Princess Kate brought "hat styling" back into fashion and has made women around the world think twice about adoring their dos with a cute little topper like the one appearing on the left.

Headwear for women has been both a frivolous ornamental accessory and necessity throughout the ages and milliners have created concoctions from the mildly simple to the grossly ornate.

A fallacy does exist, however, that hats will make a petite woman look shorter and pudgy.  That could not be farthest from the truth.  Knowing what compliments not only your facial shape but your total look is key towards purchasing the right style just for you.  You want to make sure, of course, that the style you chose matches your height and figure proportions. Any brim should definitely not be wider than your shoulders as they can overpower small frames.  If you have a full figure or over weight, stay away from very small hats. Don't wear them propped on the back of your head but rather down above your brows as it will force you to look up, elongating your neck, straightening your shoulders and making you appear visually taller.  Simple, but true.  Noted below are photos of styles for your particular facial shape.

If you have an OVAL face, not to worry.  Lucky girl that you are, you can wear anything.

Round Face

Square Face
Round Face ~ Find a hat with a large brim and a high crown. These features in a hat will help elongate your face shape and even out the roundness. 
Square Face ~ Choose hats that have curvy lines and are soft and feminine to lessen all of the angles. You also look better with large brim and upturned brim hats.

Long Face ~ You need sharp, clean styles. Wear it straight and forward to cut the length of your face. Also, go for not to wide brims with low crowns -- hats that cover your forehead to look sleek, stylish and mysterious.

Heart & Diamond Face ~  Because your chin is the most narrow point on your face, you need to avoid wide brims that will make it look narrower. Other than that, you're like the oval face shape and can pretty much wear any style you desire.
