12 Examples Of Famous Women Who Are Both Gorgeous And Tiny

You know, I kinda like to go against the grain. I like to challenge norms, heck, one could say I’m always contrarian. But one of the things that irritate me are those conventional beauty norms. A man always has to be tall, broad-shouldered, and generally just be a Viking. While women are expected to be these fragile, long-legged goddesses that came straight from the catwalk.

But see, life doesn’t always work that way. Life is messy, and humans, both men and women, come in a variety of shapes and forms. Today, thanks to Ranker, we’ll be challenging one specific set of those norms, namely, that women have to be tall and long-legged. So this list is dedicated to some of the most famous, tiny and gorgeous women out there

Ranging from 4’11” to 5’0″, most of these women are as cute as they come. The famous “pocket beauty” saying fits these ladies beautifully. Let’s see.
