This seems like the perfect listing!
Allie said on 16/Mar/16
Actually, looking at pictures and taking into account the approx age Barbara was likely listed at this height, she does look like a weak 5'8er..
Allie said on 12/Dec/15
D, Not all of us are short? I'm a legit 5'10 and a girl so if you think I'm short for a girl in contrast to the apparent average height. Models and agencies are known to lie if the models do not fit the mold. Sad but it is what it is. Besides, models get more height if they become more famous. Especially if they're shorter. Such as this girl. She's in the 5'7 range but as she got more famous, they're trying to tell us she's 5'9 now lol.
I've seen several 5'10/5'9.5 models suddenly be listed that tall then a few years later become 5'11 outta nowhere. Though sometimes these models do legit grow to 5'11, sometimes they do not.

She look 5'8.5 next to the rock.

I think Barbara is 5'7 flat. Definitely not more than 5'8
Allie said on 28/Oct/15
I think she's closer to 5'7 range than near 5'8.. I think 170-171's perfect.
Mariam, Candice is 5'8.25 max and Miranda's like 5'7.5 cause she's almost always shorter than Candice.
Lou said on 5/Oct/15
Always thought that she is 169-170

Height Observer said on 4/Sep/15
@mariam1 fact is candice was smaller than other models who's 5"9 and moreover miranda
dat said on 21/Aug/15
my doll. 171 or 172cm. less is ridiculous.
mariam1 said on 29/Jul/15
draculaura_xx Candice and Miranda are both 5'9" and it's ridiculous when some people mark them as 5'7" and 5'8". And Barbara is 5'7" 1/2 (1.72cm) all-out.
mini-mini said on 16/Jul/15
i think 5.7 right for her, 5.5 too short
draculaura_xx said on 5/Jul/15
She looks 5'5 (165 cm), I can't even think of her as a 5'7 person especially compared to Karlie. As far as I know, Candice and Miranda have always been the shortest angels (they're 5'7.75) and Barbara is shorter than them.

Looks like Natali V.
dat said on 16/Jun/15
i think she is 171cm beside karlie kloss.
Steven said on 28/May/15
No more than 169!
Lokas said on 25/May/15
@charon540 as you can see barbara and justin picture actually barbara is taller than justin about 1-2cm imo, as you can see barbara didn't wear heels nor boots, but it's a flipflop flat sandals, while justin wear a fckg sneaker boots that give him 1-3cm well i believe it's 2cm but who knows,but as you can see look at the top of barbara's head,since she didn't have a quiff or volume there, and as you can see justin's top head (not his quiff) it's not much differents,it's about 1cm ,so i believe barbara's height is 172cm

Rob, Why you list her as 5ft 8.5in (174 cm) earlier and now you've downgrade it to 5ft 7.75in (172 cm)?
[Editor Rob: she came into an agency with this 172 height and it seems that she got increased a few cm's I think nearly 5ft 8 might be the better match for her.]
said on 30/Mar/15
Don't think she's more than 171cm, which is what she was originally listed as by agencies. She wouldn't be listed as anything less than what she is. Also still listed as 171cm on Wikipedia and fashionmodeldirectory.com ... if anything, her height would be inflated. Downgrade, Rob?
[Editor Rob: 172cm for her might be better, I think she has went with a taller claim as I looked at some old agency listing and she was in that 172 zone, but got increase as she got more famous.]

Rob, i think this needs a downgrade. The 5ft 8.5 (174 cm) claim seems ridiculous enough, It's quite obvious that she seems to be within a similar range with Cara Delevingne. About 75 percent of the comments section seems to personally disagree with this. I personally think 5ft 6.5-7 (169-170 cm) is a better bet than 5ft 8.5.

Justin Bieber (169-170 cm) and Barbra Palvin

Trust me, if this girl was legit 5'8.5, IMG would have bumped her up an inch or two.
antropolog said on 21/Feb/15
Not taller than 5'7 (170cm)
S.J.H said on 18/Feb/15
Shes at least 5'7 and i bet 5'7.5 at best
Glim said on 15/Feb/15
She cant be even a bit taller than 5"7 1/2
Ketlin said on 31/Jan/15
Nope she's actually 169 cm. I remember when she started modelling she told that she's 169 cm tall and she was 19 years old. Few months later she said: actually I'm 170 cm tall and maybe a year later she was like: oh I'm 175 cm tall, thank you very much. She's obviously a liar!
said on 16/Jan/15
how tall is she rob?
i get mixed up sometimes because some people think she is 5'7 others think 5'8 and some think 5'9
[Editor Rob: I'd rule out 5ft 7 and 9 and say 5ft 8 or 8.5 is probably more likely. I think you could argue 5ft 8 is quite possible.]
Maryanne said on 27/Dec/14
Love her height :))
said on 30/Nov/14
"Barbara Palvin's height is 5ft 8in (173cm)"
Rob, is it possible that she's claiming her morning height when she says it all depends on the amount of sleep she gets?
[Editor Rob: that's a possibility.]
BGee said on 24/Nov/14
Could have sworn she was officially listed as 5'7 by her management (like Kate Moss)
said on 25/Oct/14
Here she is with Karlie Kloss (6'1" - 6'1.5").
She looks way shorter than Karlie so I would say she is 5'6" - 5'7".

Same height at the Biebs.
Arch Stanton said on 5/Oct/14
Yeah I don't know anybody in the UK who talks in cm or pounds either. It's still very much feet and inches and stone. Online is very American, so much that I've become accustomed to talking in American English, and using cm and pounds!
Paul said on 3/Oct/14
I always thought she was around 5' 7.5" (1.71 cm). She looks shorter than most of the models.

She is smokin' hot but I don't think she probably is tall as 5'8.5''
johno said on 2/Oct/14
5'6 to 5'7 and very sexy
paula said on 2/Oct/14
she is one of my favorite model definitely one the shortest out there, always been considered too short for runway indeed the bulk of her job is commercial, print, lingerie and swimsuit.
5'8 1/2 is flat out lie!!!
at the beginning of her career was listed at 5'6 now some agency list her at 5'7 1/2 some other at 5'9 (models got a different agency in each fashion capital)
my best guess is that she is somewhere between 5'6 and 5'7 (anything above that is frankly ridiculous!!!)
p.s. rob you have a great site but the height of the models listed here are often wrong (it really look like you are not into it!)
miranda kerr and lily aldrige are 5'7 5'71/2
alessandra ambrosio is 5'8
selita ebanks and marissa miller are 5'6 5'6 1/2
as general rule of thumb model shortest then 5'9 are bumped up and model taller than 5'11 are downgraded to meet the desidered height between 5'9 and 5'11, so model listed at 5'8 are 100% shorter than that(see marissa) and model listed al 6' are taller(see karlie)

Don't know anyone in UK who uses cm??
J.J. said on 2/Oct/14
Rob she is no taller than 5'7.5"
said on 1/Oct/14
Rob as a Scottish guy, don't you wish we could all stop saying this "I'm 6 feet 1 inch" jibberish, and just say "I'm a 185 cm"?
I.E. people just stop using imperial for height? or perhaps the U.S. will have to go through metrication before that happens...
[Editor Rob: it's still quite interchangable in the UK, I use both....there's still a good chunk who kind of shrug if you say 183cm!]
SAK said on 1/Oct/14
She has a great figure. I always thought she was a weak 5'9.
FlameBoy said on 1/Oct/14
damm shes tall was hoping she was like cara and only like 169-170cm in Reality Like myself i have a Severe Napoleon complex so a woman being tall always brings them down a grade IMO still Very Hot Though.
