This Celebrity's Red Carpet Style Is a Tall Girl's Dream Come True

Dacy Knight

Even though we first see our favourite designer styles demonstrated on figures nearly six feet tall while they're walking down fashion show runways, for some reason it can still be a challenge to find clothing suitable for women over 5'9". Eveningwear can be particularly difficult, with hemlines hitting the wrong place—midi dresses becoming mini, and floor-length pants becoming capris.

Alyssa Sutherland, the 5'11" Australian star of Vikings, navigates tall-girl dressing with ease. Her red carpet ensembles play with daring proportions that emphasise her towering physique as she dons wide-leg coveralls and flowing floor-length pastel dresses. She often favours pants, and every time the waistline hits well above the hips, lengthening her already long legs. Still, her style always works as she embraces her height to get away with striking outfits, even sporting a sparkly mini à la fellow 5'11" fashion girl Gisele Bündchen.
