Women love to add a few inches to their height and heels are the perfect way to do this, but it seems as women want add even more inches to their legs, shoe designers are adding even more inches to the soles of their creations - making for some vertiginous heels that women are finding it hard to stand up in (let alone walk in).

The trend for the exaggerated platform first moved into the mainstream five years ago, and has been gaining pace (and inches) ever since.

It seems the bigger the celebrity the bigger the heels - take a look through our gallery of the stars who are towering head and shoulders above the rest of the fash-pack.
