Not all tall women are hot, that wouldn’t be fair. But if a tall woman is hot, then it makes her hard to ignore, she gets noticed everywhere. A lot of the most gorgeous tall women become models as most models have to be a certain height of course. Designers love them because clothes just hang off a tall woman better. Guys love long legs, some guys even like big feet. There is no accounting for taste really. But not all of these women are models, some are actresses or singers and quite a few are athletes.
Still, it takes a certain type of guy to be comfortable hanging out with a woman that is taller than he is. No one likes to look up to kiss his girlfriend; and a guy wants to feel like the powerful one in the relationship, which is sort of hard to do when the lady in your life is taller than you are. If you hang with a tall woman, then you have to be comfortable with yourself, unless of course you are a giant yourself.
Women that are over 6 feet tall have it rough; of course there is always the guy that will come right out and say he is attracted to the Amazon type, but for the most part it isn’t cool to be gorgeous and over 6 feet tall. Well, we at TheRichest disagree.
Here is TheRichest’s list of The 10 Sexiest International Stars Over 6 Feet Tall.
10. Uma Thurman – 6′
Uma Thurman, who is known as one of the world’s hottest women, has been made being tall hot for a while now. She used to be a huge star, starring in movies like Dangerous Liasons and Pulp Fiction as well as many others. She also has had her share of relationships with many famous guys. She has been married to both Gary Oldman and Ethan Hawke. Both marriages ended in divorce. She has been keeping a bit of a low profile as of late, which must be hard to do when both gorgeous and tall, but apparently she is trying.
9. Famke Janssen – 6′
Famke Janssen is gorgeous no matter how you slice it. She has that Dutch flare and is well known as a model, actor and director. She got her first big role in a James Bond flick in the mid 90’s but most people these days know her from playing Dr. Jean Grey in the X-Men movies – meaning all sort of nerds who like sexy tall women are big fans. She was married once, but it didn’t work out, which is good for all the guys that love tall women out there. Oh, and she is really tall and really hot.
8. Elle Macpherson – 6′
Elle Macpherson is from Australia and is a world famous model and actress. There was a time when she was considered one of the hottest women in the world, and even now is she is still gorgeous. She has been on the cover of Sports Illustrated’s Swimsuit Issue a record five times. She is one of the most famous models of all time and is currently married to Miami billionaire Jeffrey Soffer. Apparently rich guys like tall and beautiful women, too. But don’t worry, even if you aren’t a billionaire you have a shot at hanging out with tall supermodels…in your dreams.
7. Amelia Vega – 6’1”
Amelia Vega is a gorgeous Dominican actress, singer, model, and a beauty queen. She became the first Dominican woman to be named Miss Universe in 2003. While many of these women tower over their husbands, Amelia doesn’t have that problem. She is married to Al Horford, who plays for the Atlanta Hawks and stands 6’10”, so at least there is one woman on this list who doesn’t feel very tall when when she is around her man. While not well known in America, she is huge (no pun intended) in the Dominican Republic and has performed for over 50,000 people.
6. Ana Ivanovic – 6’1′
Ana Ivanovic is the first, but not the last tall and hot tennis player on this list. Ana is a ridiculously hot Serbian professional tennis player who is ranked number 6 in the world and was ranked number 1 in the world in 2008. She has won over $14 million in prize money over the years. So yes, she is not only a great athlete but also rich.
Despite all of this, she is currently single. Although guys with low self esteem should probably not apply. Women like this should just be illegal.
5. Claudia Lampe – 6’2”
Claudia Lampe is yet another tall athlete who is incredibly hot. She was a college basketball player at the University of Texas El Paso where she was a solid contributor. She is originally from Bolivia and played basketball for the Bolivian national team. So one would think she might have gotten into pro basketball because she was 6 feet 2 inches tall? She did, but it just so happens that she is now a model and by the looks of her photos is doing quite well. Claudia is the epitome of a woman that can be well over 6 feet tall and still be super hot.
4. Natalia Bush – 6’2”
Natalia Bush is a really gorgeous Spanish model with amazing green eyes and an amazing body. She was born in the Canary Islands of Spain, and was declared Miss Tenerife in 2003. She now lives in Italy. Her father is from South Africa, and her mother is Spanish. Besides modeling, she has done a bit of acting, appearing in some Spanish, and Italian movies. She is single, so if any of you guys are interested in a gorgeous, 6 feet 2 inches tall model with an incredible exotic look you might want to get in touch. Unless of course you are intimidated or something.
3. Maria Sharapova – 6’2”
For crying out loud, just knock it off. Rich, one of the best athletes in the world, incredibly gorgeous, I mean do you have to be 6’2” to go along with all of that? She is 28 years old and is from Russia. Maria Sharapova is an amazing tennis player who is ranked third in the world. She has lived in the United States since 1994. Competing on the WTA tour since 2001, Sharapove has done extremely well, ranking number 1 in singles on five separate occasions. The blonde bombshell has also represented her country, most recently at the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, earned a silver in the women’s singles.
2. Gabrielle Reece – 6’4”
Now we are starting to get into uncharted territory. Gabrielle Reece is a whopping 6 feet 4 inches tall. She is arguably the hottest volleyball player of all time.
Born in California, raised in the Virgin Islands, Reece went to college at Florida State, where she was a beast at volleyball. She set school records in blocks, many of which still stand today. Following her collegiate career, she moved to the Big Apple in pursuit of a modeling career. As luck would have it, not only has she modeled, but she’s had a successful professional volleyball career. Her 6’4” frame appeared in Playboy in 2001.
1. Lauren Jackson – 6’5”
Lauren Jackson is the last, and the tallest on this list. Standing at a ridiculous 6’5,” Lauren is still undeniably and very confusingly hot. She is from Australia and is the daughter of two former professional basketball players. She has played professionally in Australia and in the Unites States. She also has played in the Olympics for Australia and has won three silver medals, as well as a bronze. She was 6 feet 5 inches tall by the time she was 16.
