How tall is Shakira ?

Home :: Bookmark :: About  

Shakira's height is 5ft 2in (157 cm)

Colombian Singer.

From Maxim Magazine she said in regards to britney they are 'same height'

But also from that magazine:
Did you have any nicknames? When I was little, they used to make up all kinds of things, always playing on my name, like Cachita instead of Shakira. And now I get Shak, Shak Attack, Shaki, Shakazulu, Shakarita…but my classmates also used to call me Enana, which means dwarf, because I was always the tiniest one in my class. Do you wish you were taller? Actually, I like being petite. When you’re small, people tend to protect you and treat you in a soft, gentle way. And I like that. I like getting demonstrations of love and affection. Who doesn’t!
Visitor Katy pointed out Shakira said in a video she described herself as a "5 foot 3 girl from colombia"

Given the formal dress she has on she has to be wearing heels on this photo: Click Here so the difference between her and Gerard Pique is even greater than it seems. Click Here

She is a tall female but she always curve her legs to look short and young 162cm not short

Looks taller than 5ft2 in the photo

She might be no taller than 5'0. I wouldn't be surprised if she just reaches that height.

I think Shakira is 5f1 because next to 5f7 Sophia Vergara she looked to me to be around 6 inches smaller. Click Here

Hmm, another source is affirming the frequently mentioned 4 feet 11 inches. Click Here

I met her when she came to India to perform way back in 2006 or 2007 at a party thrown for her by my friend's father. I was 10 or 11 then and had just crossed the 5'0" mark. When I was talking to her (she's a super nice woman, BTW) she seemed to be about my height, and both of our shoes had approximately the same heel height. So I guess she's in the 5'0-5'1" range.

on the radio they said she was 4'11
Sarah says on 12/Oct/13
Saw her statue at Madame Toussauds. She was about 5'1" or maybe 5'1.5
Erica says on 20/Aug/13
It says here she's 5 feet no inches. Click Here

she doesn't seems 5'2 next to gerard piqué (6'4) he seems 1'4-5 taller than her when we take care of her heels.

Can somebody explain this? Avril Lavigne gives her height as 5'1", so I highly doubt she's taller. Here is Shakira and Avril in similar size heels.

She can't be 5'2, and is most certainly not 5'3. I think she's applying the Hollywood two inches.
Cache says on 26/Jul/13
Yup Just Because is right most Colombian top models are tall. Lina Mossquero, Norma Nivia, Aileen Maria are all in the 1.83 range.
Star says on 24/Jul/13
Shakira has been quoted as saying she is 4'11.
And Ali, 5'1" is not the average height in Colombia. There's a big mix down there just like in Brazil where they found Gisele Bundchen and many other models. There are many Colombians mixed with German or African which are both known for being tall.
ice says on 5/Jul/13
Really? All you see is a 2-inch advantage? That platform looks just as tall as the one she's wearing with Gerard, and Selena has no platform at all. Also, with Gerard, let's say he is 6'3.5", making him 6'4.5" in shoes. At a head taller, that puts Shakira at 5'7" in those shoes. Giving her another benefit of the doubt, and saying she's only getting 5.5 inches from those heels, puts her at 5'1.5". The likelihood that EVERYTHING is in favor of her being taller is slim, plus she still winds up shorter than what's listed here. I really can't see her being taller than 5'1, which is average in Columbia (Nevermind people in her own country calls her short...)

Okay, done! Selena Gomez is listed at 5'4.5" on this site. I found a picture of her in regular 3-inch heels or so, while Shakira has on heels with what looks to be another insane platform. Shakira has to have at least a 3-inch shoor advantage, yet is the same height as Selena, if not shorter. Rob, please explain this!

[Editor Rob: she looks to have about 2-inch shoe advantage to me.]

Editor Rob, look at Shakira's INSANE shoes in this photo. The platform looks to be at minimum of 3 inches, and there's an additional 4 inch heel attached. I think she's getting 6 inches of height. Gerard Pique is listed at 6'3", so you know that he won't be any taller. With tennis shoes, let's give him 6'4" With him slouching and looking down at her, she's only a bit above his shoulder. It looks like he has a whole head, so with those shoes on, she's about 5'6.5" Subtract those shoes, and I can't see more than 5'1. I think we can rule out the 4'11", but her 5'3" claims are ridiculous.

What do you think, Rob?
[Editor Rob: pique could be 6ft 3.5 range, but she might get near 6 inches with a big platform like that]

Penelope Cruz is listed as 5'4" on this site. You mean to tell me that this is only two inches?

Editor Rob, take a look at this. Carson Daly is listed as 6'1 on this site, making him about 6'2 in shoes. In In very tall heels with what looks to have a bit of platform, Shakira is 10 inches shorter, or 5'4. Without those things, she can't be taller than 5'0.

Not all ColOmbian women are shorties. I'm 5'6" tall, and I have cousins who are taller than me.
Pink Roses says on 25/Mar/13
NO WAY SHE IS 5'3!! I met her in 2007, her and I were wearing flat shoes and I was way taller then her, and I'm short, only 5'2! hahahah I love you Shak but face it girl ,you are short! haha
krazykarl says on 16/Mar/13
I rode a flight from Santiago Chile to Buenos Aires, and a stood next to her with 3 in heels and she is no more than 5' 3" tall with them on.
Clarissa says on 3/Feb/13
Hey guys , she's not 157 cm , she is 150 cm i really saw her at concert she's small and she looks like a barbie , a baby doll that you take a lot of time to see her better because she's like a barbie with a little face , little arms stunning stare , she is more beautiful than television , nice presence; also jlo is tiny i saw her last year and she looked a 5'3 160 cm no more.
damian says on 29/Jan/13
No way she's 5ft 2in (157 cm).

Back in the mid 90's, when she was starting her career and singing in Spanish only, she said in a Mexican tv show "I'm just 152 cm"

To be more accurate, she said that in "Siempre en Domingo" (Always in Sunday).
ashley says on 27/Jan/13
She 's not 5'3 at all , i saw her she is little i think she 's 4'11 , that's it.
Ali says on 19/Jan/13
This is a joke, shakira is seriously like 5 foot nothing or 4 foot eleven. 5'1 is average in columbia so surely if she is 5'2 or 5'3 she could not have been considered small at all. Rob she needs a downgrade seriously.
Katy says on 11/Jan/13
In a recent interview for the Voice she said she was 5'3. This is the video in min 0.56 where she mentions that: Click Here
[Editor Rob: good find]

"Same height" as Britney. Somebody stop the laughing.
marla singer says on 15/Oct/12
Dwarf? 5'1.5 is above average in Colombia (her country) or at least average. I think women's average there is 5'0-5'1. I went there a couple of years ago, I am a 5'5-5'5.5 girl and even in flats I literally towered over most women, while most of the men were more or less my height, with a very few exceptions.
Silent d says on 12/Oct/12
On an episode of celebrity juice she was listed as 5 foot. Keith lemon said those were their actual heights. I don't believe it but beckham was listed as 6 foot on that show. I think shakira is at least 5 foot 2. She looks short but i think she could be 5 foot 3. If she claims britney's height, she must be close. 5 foot 3.
Brad says on 21/Sep/12
Wears giant heels much like Aguilera. As listed. J-Lo wouldn't be caught in the under 5' 2" footwear, she doesn't need it.
johnnyfive says on 6/Sep/12
This is the evidence I am talking about. On this first pic, J-Lo is actually around 1.5 inches taller, but who knows if her heels are bigger than Shakira's. Regardless, it doesn't look like a 5'1.5 standing next to a 5'5 AT ALL

In this other photo, Shakira is actually looking TALLER!

So you be the judge, we all know J-Lo definitely deserves a two inch downgrade to her real height of 5'3, but also I'm advocating for Shakira's upgrade to AT LEAST 5'2.5, or perhaps a weak 5'3.
Johnnyfive says on 1/Sep/12
I usually don't upgrade celebs but I think shes closer to 5'3 based on pics I see of her and Jlo who you inexplicably have at 5'5 but is closer to 5'3 or 5'3.5. In those pics Shaki and Jlo look almook the same height and in some Jlo is about a half inch taller. Even at 5'3 Jlo should look considerably taller and she isn't not to mention at 5'5! Jlo should tower her! An upgrade to 5'2.5 or 5'3 is in order for Shakira.

On her documents (it's hers for sure, just check birth date etc.) she claimed to be 5'4" (162 cm) Click Here
