Anna Kendrick on Trying to Look Taller and Finding Her Perfect Oscars Heels

With the Oscars just days away, first-time nominee Anna Kendrick is finding her wardrobe to be almost more stressful than the biggest night in her career up to now. “It’s been physically more uncomfortable than I expected it to be!” Kendrick tells PEOPLE of her red carpet season experience at last night’s Pre-Oscar Poolside Party benefiting The Red Cross Haiti & Chile Relief Fund at the Beverly Wilshire, Four Seasons. “You want your waistline to be just so, and I’m always trying to look taller than I am –so I’m always in something that’s a little snug or a little too tall.” And while she admits one secret weapon she’s used is Spanx, her main concern for Sunday is finding a pair of shoes that won’t hurt. “I’m just trying to sift through what heels are more comfortable on my feet. Certain Jimmy Choos and Sergio Rossi shoes are really comfortable, but it varies from shoe to shoe, so it’s kind of hit and miss, trial and error.” So while her style needs are at fever pitch, the Best Supporting Actress nominee says: “I keep trying to immerse myself in something that doesn’t have anything to do with the movie or awards season.” And that includes reading books and preparing for her mom’s arrival from Maine to attend the telecast with her. We can’t wait to see what Anna will choose for the red carpet on Sunday — vote on our gown predictions now!Andrea DeSimone; with reporting by Alexis Chiu

There is no need to “try to look taller” in a dress/outfit. You will only end up looking uncomfortable and forced. Be yourself, Anna, and hire a good stylist if needed, who will help to guide you in obtaining a dress and/or shoes that compliment you as you are.

I like Anna Kendrick’s Oscar Heels! It’s nice that The Director of Eclipse says it’ll be even steamier!
