Celebs Will Never Let This Controversial Shoe Trend Die Out

Celebs are never ones to shy away from a polarizing shoe trend. Instead, Hollywood's style set is usually the first to hop on board with a tricky style to show us how it's done (or maybe just to stir the pot a little—who knows?). Remember when J.Lo made jaws drop by wearing a pair of sky-high platform stilettos that defy the laws of gravity? Well, it turns out she's not alone. Suddenly, more and more celebs are opting for impossibly high platform heels, and we can't help but notice the growing trend.

While J.Lo is definitely known for favoring her platforms, Victoria Beckham is also a fan of the teetering shoes, which she somehow pulls off flawlessly. I won't lie. The thought of walking just a few steps in heels that high makes me cringe. Just think how easy it would be to make a wrong step and end up with a broken ankle! Despite the risk, we've just added Jessica Alba, Yara Shahidi and Elle Fanning to the list of celebs who are putting their stamp of approval on the shoes.

From Lopez's eye-widening boots to Alba's more walkable pair, keep reading to see how celebs are wearing platform heels right now, and then shop the pieces you need to get their looks.
