Kim Kardashian isn't one to let her 5-foot-2 stature get her down -- the reality superstar is constantly reaching new heights in sky-high heels.
Such was the case for her August 20 nuptials in Montecito, Calif., where the famous bride tied the knot with her 6-foot-9 beau Kris Humphries. Decked out in a strapless ivory Vera Wang gown, Kardashian walked down the aisle in towering Giuseppe Zanotti platform pumps.
"The first pair went with the princess dress that I wore during the wedding ceremony. They are closed-toe off-white satin with the crystal heel. I needed the height and wanted a sturdy heel because I was so afraid I was going to trip walking down the aisle! LOL," the 30-year-old posted on her website along with a pic of the shoes on August 29.
"For my mermaid gown I wore the peep toe white heels with the amazing beads on them," she continued. "And then thirdly, I wore the simple satin sling back peep toes with my simple satin old Hollywood gown."
Giuseppe Zanotti's luxe footwear styles are a red-carpet favorite among celebs. His platform peep-toe slingbacks retail for $595 and up and boast a 5.5-inch heel, while the double-platform pumps can run you $695 and add an impressive 5.75-inch boost to your height.
