How tall is Cara Delevingne ?

Cara Delevingne's Height is 5ft 7in (170 cm)

English Fashion Model and actress from Paper Towns and Suicide Squad (2016). She was listed at a ludicrous 5ft 9.5 by a fashion agency, but even she is probably embarrassed by that fib since in an 'Into The Gloss' blog article Cara directly mentioned her own height: "I'm tiny for runway! I'm 5'8" or 5'7"". Her vital stats were also given as Bra/Bust size 31A, Waist site 24 inches, Hips 34 inches, Shoe Size 6UK (7.5-8US), Dress Size 2US (6UK)

Always wondered myself why they're lying so much about models height.It's like they want some kind of stereotype for the body of women.The worse is that some nice girls who are only 5'6-7 range could be discouraged by the fake standards imposed.
Unfortunately people tend to idealize the images vehiculed by TV and magazines leading to negative reactions such as a girl I know who is recently turning anorexic arguing she was too fat when she's absolutely average weight.
By selling images agencies act as if they can decide what should be the perfect body which is stupid and they know it very well.After all are directors that blind not to see that Cara is way under the 5'9.5 listing?Probably not.In the end I'm believing that lying is just a second nature in that world.

list of short Runway models: Anja Konstantinova 5.4 / Bambi Northwood-blyth 5.6 / Barbara Palvin 57/ Marine Deleeuw 58 / Alena Blohm 57 (one of my favorites)/ Zippora Seven 55 /Georgia May Jagger 56 / Chanel Iman 58 /Amanda Norgaard 56 / Siri Tollerod 58 / Ashley Smith 57 / Charlotte Free 55 / Jacquelyn Jablonski 5.8/ Anais Mali 57 / Julia Hafstrom 57 / Devon Aoki 55/ Sara Sampaio 56 / Luma Grothe 57 (I have seen her in person and she is pretty short (for model), 5'7 max) / Sasha Pivovarova 57/ Loulou Robert 55 / Malaika Firth 57 / Anna Ewers 57 / Hailey Baldwin 57 / Suki Waterhouse 57 / Shanina Shaik 58 / Olympia Campbell 57 / Laetitia Casta 5.5 and Cara 5.6-5.7;)

She looks 5 inches shorter than Toni Garrn though.. Toni's 5'11.5-5'11.75 which makes Cara a weak 5'7, 5'6.5. Nothing less and the lowest I'd say is 5'6.
Mini said on 26/Aug/15
@ M who was the model? And yeah.. there are very little to no successful fashion models 165 cm, maybe Charlotte Free but she isn't that successful. I'm talking high fashion btw and not some commercial swimwear show.
@Kayliee I've stated that connections have helped her to get where she is, I'm not an idiot. Her sister Poppy was working in the business, she's a socialite, I know. And you're incorrect, agencies will not list a model as 170 in case other girls want to become models, they list them over 5'9" usually because they want all the girls in a show to be more or less the same height so it won't create a distraction on the runway from the clothes which is what they're there to sell. What I'm saying is connections alone will not get you a place on the runway if you're small. Cara is tall for an average girl, short for the average model. No agency is going to risk sending a girl who is small to potential clients because the client won't trust them in the future. Minimum is 5'7". That's it. Not hard to understand.
Allie said on 22/Aug/15
Rob, you should add actress now. She has officially quit modeling and just starred in Paper Towns and is filming Suicide Squad. :).
[Editor Rob: yes, I should mention that now.]
Kayliee said on 21/Aug/15
@Mini you are very upset probably because you like Cara and as for many people it is difficult or not possible to admit or to realize that their favourite celebrity is "not as they imagine". You and some other people don't consider fact that Cara is not some random , ordinary girl who wanted to become model. Her sisters were already working in this buisness, her family is known, so it's not like she comes from nowhere. Of course model agencies will not admit "she is only 1,70m" because all other girls with only 1.70m would want to become models. And even Karl Lagerfeld said about her that she doesn't look like "typical model" but she completes all with her character and charisma. Cara is not tall like other models but she has "this thing" which makes her different form others and makes her career going fast. She is acception like Vanessa Paradis (160cm) Kate Moss (165 cm) Sasha Pivovarova (174cm her height was also always overstated) which were successful models.
M said on 21/Aug/15
@Mini you are lying sho hard, but not because od Cara, there is another raeson why are you lying..There are many models on catwalk from 1.65-1.70m. I met before many years one model, 5'6" who worked in America, and showed me her pictures on Oscar De La Renta shows.
Kina said on 20/Aug/15
She must be between 5'6 and 5'7 as Marc Jacobs once called her "a dwarf" [for the catwalk] and banned her from runway.
Cliff said on 20/Aug/15
I agree with "Mini."

Even in the photos on the yacht with Selena Gomez she looks two inches taller. There are more models than ever now around this height (Sara Sampaio and Natalia Vodianova are other examples). Keep in mind that 170cm is still above the global average height for a female, It's just not very tall for a runway model. Both Cara and Sara are thin and have long legs and longish bodies which make them photograph taller than they actually are. I think Kate Moss opened the doors for models under 172cm.
dat said on 20/Aug/15
yes. she is 170cm.
Ben said on 20/Aug/15
@Emily You can't compare with such a photo when you don't even see what kind of shoes they are wearing, and what position they were standing.
Mini said on 17/Aug/15
She's 5'7". That's it. No smaller. She simply would not get signed in the first place and walk in numerous shows if she wasn't somewhat tall. The connections help but she still had to be tall to show off the clothes down a runway. The stupid photo with Selena that people keep bringing up is one in thousands of photos where she looks the same height as Selena and yet looks much taller in other photos. It's called angles and posture. I know for a fact from someone in the industry who worked with her that the girl is "no more than 173 cm" and no less than 170. Trying to downgrade her to 5'6" or 5'5" is idiotic. No agency is going to risk sending a girl shorter than that to a client because the client will send her back and they won't trust the agency anymore. As a model, Cara is a product. Models are tall and thin. 5'7" is somewhat tall. 5'6" is not. Come back to me when you find a fashion model of that height (excluding Kate or Devon or Georgia) who has walked in numerous shows and fronted blue chip campaigns and editorials. I'll be waiting.
N said on 17/Aug/15
Though she seems shorter than most 5ft9 (175.5cm) or more models, seeing her next to Nat Wolff (183-185cm) in Paper Towns (not the pictures, but the movie scenes) I wouldn't say she is 13-15cm shorter than him. I would give her around 173cm, she isn't really tall, but in that movie you can see that her height is not average, more like slightly taller than average.
M said on 7/Aug/15
Cara is only 1" taller then Selan Gomez (1.65m) so she is 5'6" and with 5'6" she can be runway model.Not only very tall women do runways.
Emily said on 6/Aug/15
@mariam1 agree with you, 5'4" - 5'5" listing is ridiculous for her, she isnt taller then 5.7 but not shorter then 5.6.

M said on 6/Aug/15
@mariam and Why 5'5" should be rediculous for models when there are lot's of models that height (although they are not so welknown)..Not only very tall women can be model.
M said on 6/Aug/15
@mariam you are very very wrong.
mariam1 said on 5/Aug/15
Cara isn't as tall as the other models and sometimes she looks like a dwarf next to them, but 5'4" - 5'5" - 5'6" listing is ridiculous even for her. When she entered in Storm modeling agency she was around 17 and she wasn't less than 5'7" ,but she obviously has grown since her first fashion weeks (which was in 2011-12) I think now she's around 5'7"5 - 5'8 , no more than 5'8" but 5'4"-5'6" downgrades are so funny.
mariam1 said on 5/Aug/15
Cara isn't as tall as the other models, sometimes she looks like dwarf next to them, but 5'4" - 5'5" listing is ridiculous even for her. When she started doing fashion weeks she wasn't less than 5'6" , but her skinny body, thin bone structure and long legs makes her look taller. So I think she was like 5'7" - 5'7".5 in a best case (max) also I'm pretty sure she grew after 2012 for like a half inch, cause now she looks taller than 2012. And I can't get why she's that "short", cause her siblings are both tall (over 5'9").
louise2002 said on 3/Aug/15
Im not fan of her. so 5.6-5.7 for cara.)
hector said on 3/Aug/15
164 cm,just like Selena Gomez
Dan said on 1/Aug/15
I wouldn't give Cara such a high number at first glance, but 5'7 looks legit.

Also, not sure what you're trying to do here, Arch; you definitely don't have to sound the way you sounded on this page, especially if you're going to base your 'opinion' from a bunch of photos. Cara is a gorgeous lady objectively speaking, no matter what you think.

5'6.5 - 5'7 is right.

@ Lissa98 she is not short,she is average 5.6
pj said on 13/Jul/15
that photo of her and selena look like they are the same height. however, ill give her the benefit of the doubt and say she is at the very least 5'7. she is small, for a model that is, but she's got nice proportions, long legs and very small boned. Ideal for modeling. now, obviously without her connections, I dont think shed be where she is today nor would most "top" models in today's age.
Lissa98 said on 13/Jul/15
why she looks so short? even with actors and fans
Allie said on 5/Jul/15
Rob, I noticed that models who are in the 5'6-5'8 range are automatically listed as 5'9.5, or 5'9 and 5'10. Then models, save for some like Adriana, who are only 5'10 or a hair taller than that are given 5'10.5 or 5'11. Then anyone taller than 5'11 is downgraded to 5'11 or 5'11.5.

Sometimes though, models are rounded up or down like say Iggy when she use to model. Makes you wonder whose actually telling the truth heh. Of course, you have people like Lima or Kurkova who are most likely telling the truth.
[Editor Rob:
They should really just measure and state the height. Lying about it is a bit silly, but then, when you can get more jobs by lying up or down, you can see why people fall into that trap.]
roy said on 18/Jun/15
5'5 to 5'6 and my love
dat said on 16/Jun/15
I'd gave her 171 or 172cm. no more.
Sean said on 16/Jun/15
Hm. Based on that photo with Selena, I think she's not quite 5'7, but certainly no shorter than 5'6. In my opinion, she's only up to a half inch shorter than listed, so 5'7 is a fine listing.
Cathy said on 15/Jun/15
Jourdan Dunn is listed at 5'10 not 6'. She still towers over Cara, who is also listed at 5'10.I wonder what the early clients thought of this when they asked for a 5'10 model and Cara shows up closer to 5'4 (@Absurd pictures)And Selena Gomez used to be listed at 5'4 just before that Selena and Cara picture came out.
Allie said on 25/May/15
An article said she's 5'9. Hahaha, more like 168/169. 170 on a good day.
Stephanie said on 16/May/15
I'd say she's 5' 7"/170 cm. She does look to be close in height to 5' 5" girls but she's leaning over in the pics so I do believe she's around 2" taller than they are. Maybe the height the agency gave was her height in heels?
Ben said on 13/May/15
She's same height as Stella McCartney (as showed by Natasha) and Selena Gomez (as showed by Absurd) who are both 5'5.
So she's 5'5.
Natasha said on 10/May/15
oh... I can't believe! she is the same height as Stella McCartney 166cm

Are you sure big G? She might be only 5'6.776 and still have your a**e in a height face off!
G said on 5/May/15
it shows us how the fashion agencies manipulate the heights of its models, she is 5'7
Jack said on 1/May/15
@Taylor jordann is 5,9"5 - 5.11 for shure, same height as kassia struss
Taylor said on 29/Apr/15
like a kendall j, she's not real 5.10. 5.9 max!
selena is 5.5 for shure not 5.4! cara a little bit taller then selena, 5.7 (169) maybe? jordann can be 6,0, but cara still look 5,6 nex jordan,
i mean if jordann is 6.0 then cara is 5,6-5,7 max.
this girl is a supermodel because of her family, like a lydia hearst
Absurd said on 28/Apr/15
The biggest LIE EVER of model agencies ! ! ! Compare 2 photos. Jourdan Dunn is arround 1.80m and Cara is supposed to be (according to official informations of model agency) 1.76m (!) It is a joke if you look at photo

And photo of Cara and Selena Gomez (1.64m!!!)

Rovan said on 26/Apr/15
Somewhere between 2012 and 2013,she was listed as 5ft 9.25in (176 cm), late 2013 she was listed as 5ft 9.5in (177 cm) to 2014, now she's listed as 5ft 8in (173 cm) 2015. Why can't the agency just measure the models instead of guessing! It's on google
Taylor said on 21/Apr/15
5.7 or 5.6
kenny said on 20/Apr/15
@rahul Bianca Brandolini?
@ Cathy she's not 5.9 but she's can't be shorter then 5.6.
5.7 (169-170cm) sound right for her
Leilan said on 19/Apr/15
Actually guys, @lex @liv and whoever said short models do not walk in high fashion shows: you are all wrong. Let's remember how short Kate Moss is and how much of an icone she is. Designers don't always look up for the tallest, sometimes it's all about the attitude. I have been working in the industry for years. Same thing goes for beauty: sometimes you will have very ugly models (exotic, as we like to say) who have killer attitude. Cara is probably 1,69 or 1,70. Who cares? She rocks.
Cathy said on 18/Apr/15
2 inches more? It's more like 6 inches added if you've seen her standing near 5'4 Selena Gomez and Rita Ora and they are all the same height. And Kate Moss needed high heels to be Cara's height. A girl who is 5'4 or shorter could never get into a big modeling agency. They will be told about the 5'9 and above rule and sent away. Maybe all the short girls should go to Storm Model Agency. Kate Moss and Cara seem to have done well with them!
Skye said on 15/Apr/15
Her being listed at almost 5'10 is ludicrous.. Kinda makes you wonder what other models are given 2 or more inches for there height. :p. Though, adding a lot may just be for the shorter models..?
rahul said on 14/Apr/15

She is just 1" taller than Selena Gomez and this is the real truth - 5'6"
Mini said on 8/Mar/15
Hey Rob, Storm have changed her measurements! They now list her as 5'8. Close enough I guess for a model agency :P
[Editor Rob: I'm waiting one day for an agency that measures their models and puts every model at the actual height they get measured.]

I think she is 5'6 because Rita is 5'5 and Cara is an inch taller.

I think Sel is not as tall as Rita! I think Sel is 5'4 max that's why Cara looks 2 inches taller

Only Karlie Kloss dooesn't lie about her height, because she is really 6'1" tall, and I think she is currently the tallest female model.
M said on 16/Feb/15
She is 5'6" just 1" taller than Selena Gomez who is for sure 5'5".
Tania said on 13/Feb/15
@Mini: Not all short models have connections, but the most successful ones often do. The ones you listed might be well known in fashion circles, but Cara is a mainstream star thanks to her family friends pushing her in the spotlight. Yes, she has a great personality, but I doubt she would've been so popular if she was the daughter of working-class parents.
Also it is a fact that the majority - say 50-60% of "short" models are well-connected. Again, not all of them, but MOST of them.
Liv said on 12/Feb/15
I agree with the comment down below, lex. If she was 5'6 she would not be able to model at all, period. Even 5'7 is pushing it for being a model.
Mini said on 10/Feb/15
@ Tania: These short models don't have any apparent connections though?: Zippora Seven, Sasha Pivovarova, Siri Tollerod, Bambi Northwood-Blyth, Hannah Holman, Freya Lawrence, Anja Konstantinova..

Not all short models have connections.

Her eyebrows are 6ft long
Tania said on 6/Feb/15
@Mini - lex isn't wrong though.
Georgia Jagger - Daughter of Mick Jagger
Devon Aoki - Sister of world-famous DJ Steve Aoki and daughter of Benihana founder Hioraki Aoki
Jean Campbell - Daughter of the present-day Earl and Thane of Cawdor; Mario Testino is an old friend of her mother's.
Olympia Campbell - Sister of established model Edie Campbell

The exceptions in your list are Norgaard, Hirschy, Kate Moss and Free - lex's point still stands, if you're below 5'7'-8" and are a runway model, chances are you're either from a well-connected family or you know people who are. If Cara wasn't from a wealthy family she'd be lucky getting a job modelling for Topshop.
lala said on 4/Feb/15
She appears to be the same height as Suki Waterhouse. Neither would be a model if it wasn't for their families, as 5'7 is too short for everyone to become one (no matter how breathtaking they might be). Just like 6'1 is too tall (Karlie is the exception). With that said, Cara does have a modelesque face IMO. Suki on the other hand does not.
Mini said on 3/Feb/15
@ lex: Charlotte Free, Georgia Jagger, Hirschy, Devon Aoki, Kate Moss, Amanda Norgaard, Jean Campbell, Olympia Campbell.. models who have walked shows and who are all under 5'7.
Tania said on 1/Feb/15
Yup, looks about 5'7" on the nose to me. 5'9.5 - lolwut.
lex said on 31/Jan/15
okay, so she is def 5'7". she looks very short compared to kendall jenner in her most recent pics. No matter any connections, a 5'6 model CAN AND WILL NOT walk in a show-period. A 5'7" model does have a slim to no chance, but still has a chance with connections, exotic look ect.. She is not below 5'7. Agenices make her taller to make her seem more marketable. If you really wanna know amodels height, an agency website isnt the place to go. They always market the models 2-3 inches taller than they actually are.

She's pretty damn short - same as 5'5 charlotte free and georgia may. Good proportions but v small
Mini said on 22/Jan/15
There are more 5'7 models out there doing runway that don't have connections you know.. she has long legs and she's thin and has a beautiful face. Designers overlook a few inches if everything else ticks the box.
Okay said on 19/Jan/15
Why is she even a runway model if she's too short? The standards are at least 5'9. Connections. Connections.
Tom said on 16/Jan/15
Not trying to be a smarty pants,but i think her agency listed her height wrong,because she looks short in the runway compared to other models.I believe she is 5'7 or 169 cm

Mini said on 11/Dec/14
Rob, do you think she could be a bit over 5'7?
[Editor Rob: from looking at her with other models I think right in the 5ft 7 zone is my guess, I think when you see her with the 5ft 9-10 models it's quite clear 5ft 8 is too much.]
