Comment on the Height of Gisele Bundchen

Allie said on 15/Nov/15
Well I did find one agency.. Option Model Management lists her as 5'10.5.

Also, Rob, interestingly enough, when she was 20, in September 2000, a Newsweek article described her as 1.77 (which I assume is 5'9.5 as models listed as this tall are usually given this height). Here..

Click Here

You might not be able to view it because it involves paying to view it if you've viewed the article too many times, but if you see her Wikipedia page, it takes the exact quote needed:

Then after she became all super famous she decided she needed the upgrade to 5'11, even though she was 20 by this time, unless she was measured at around when she started (14/15) and she thought she grew.. Just wondering if you could mention in her little blurb. Maybe like: "When she was 20, a Newsweek described her as standing at 1.77m/5'9.5 tall".
Editor Rob: I think finding her first modelling agency page would be better, but her own claim always does seem like she added some height, how much exactly, 1 or 3-4cm is the eternal question.
Janet said on 12/Nov/15
She's definitely a solid 5'10. I don't know why she fibbed because she's already so tall
Allie said on 8/Nov/15
She still tries saying claiming 5'11 even though KK destroyed her claim all those years ago.
Allie said on 6/Oct/15
Rob, which agency if you remember said she was 179? Most of the agencies I see have her at the 180 cm she claims.
[Editor Rob: I can't remember now, many agencies change heights as you probably know. Sometimes older heights can be found going back using the internet archive, but it is time consuming...]
Allie said on 3/Oct/15
No way is just 5'9. Look at her with Jimmy Fallon. Fallon's 182 himself, wearing shoes that make him around 6'0.75 range according to Rob, and Gisele's heels have no platform on them and she's at least an inch inches taller. No way that a 173-175 person could pull that off without a platform with a person who's around 6'0.75 with the shoes.

5'10 for her.
N28 said on 13/Aug/15
Gisele Bndchen is maximum 5'9 and all those photos of her next to Karlie Kloss (whether she's slouching or stretching or dancing or whatever) confirms this. No matter what anyone says, seeing is believing. Karlie Kloss always wears the shortest heels in contrast to the other models and yet she is way taller than them all, especially Gisele, the latter always wearing chunky platform superheels.
Allie said on 12/Aug/15
No Gisele is not 180. She's a true 5'10. The exact same height as Adriana. Karolina herself has stated that's she only 5'11.
Jan said on 11/Aug/15
Gisele does not need an upgrade she was never any taller than Adriana Lima. Legit 5'10. No more.

Daniel said on 28/Jul/15
Rob Gisele needs an upgrade. 180cm. Karolina Kurkova is modeling lie height. Karoline is a solid 6".Toni Garrn must be 6"1
vegasBitch said on 25/Jul/15
I believe she's 5'11" at least. I saw her a few times at Whole Foods and she look like a beanpole, with a a rather horsy face. Very fit and photographs well, but arrogant. Like she's got something to prove.
Lovelife said on 25/Jul/15
I just noticed that in the infamous picture taken in 2013 with Gisele standing next to Karlie and Karlie looks 3-4 inches taller than Gisele. Gisele was slouching her head! If Gisele stood straight like Karlie than Gisele was actually only 2-2.5 inches shorter than Karlie. You can see in another picture at that event on Google. 180cm for Gisele and 185cm for Karlie.
ben said on 25/Jul/15
Bob finally downgraded her. Legit 178cm.
ben said on 20/Jul/15
Karlie Kloss legit 187cm in the morning
Gisele Bundchen legit 178cm in the morning
Gisele was measured 177cm when she was 16 years old so it made sense that she grew 1 cm after that
Just said on 20/Jul/15
Rob, this is a pic with full body shot of Gisele and Karolina, back to back, in similar high heels. Even with Gisele standing straight and Karolina slouching, Karolina is still 2" taller than Gisele. Click Here
So, either Gisele is not 5'10"5 or Karolina needs an upgrade to 6', right?
[Editor Rob: generally I think about 5ft 10 fits Gisele amongst most of the other models.]

178 cm
Just said on 25/Jun/15
I think everybody agrees it's impossible for Gisele to be 5'10"5 since she's definitely more than 1" shorter than 5'11 Karolina.
And the majority knows her real height (before she got famous) is 177 cm.
Bishop said on 24/Jun/15
5'9" is too low. 5'10" flat is probably better.
Allie said on 23/Jun/15
5'9.75 is the lowest I'd go. Which is still 177cm.
maryanne said on 16/Jun/15
Allie said on 15/Jun/15
Actually, I was gonna say 5'9ish, but given how she and Adriana look dead on in height, I think 178cm. Also, given her pictures with Kurkova, Rob, do you think 178 is more likely closer in the very least?

James said on 27/May/15
She can't be 179 according to pictures with Karolina Kurkova and Karlei Kloss; 175 is closer by.
Just said on 20/May/15
Rob, there's barely any height difference between Karlie and Toni or Karlie and Ireland, but still you've listed them 1"5 apart. And there's clearly a bigger height difference between Gisele and Karolina, but you've only listed them a half inch apart. Why?
Skye said on 14/May/15
More like 175-177 given her pic with Kurkova.
MaryAnne said on 12/May/15
downgrade her to 1.77
Just said on 3/May/15
Before she got famous she was 1.77 m. After she got famous she's all of a sudden 5'11 on certain sites (just like Jennifer Lawrence). She's clearly about 2 inches shorter than Karolina Kurlova. So there's no way Gisele is 5'10"5! If she is, then Karolina is at least 6' tall.
louise2002 said on 24/Apr/15
she can't be 180, she is over 176-177cm
Tunman said on 16/Apr/15
Brady was in fact measured 6'4 3/8" or 194 which was rounded down to 6'4
You're right however when saying measurements are performed in the morning
I think he's just 193 (a further cm loss from mid morning to late evening)
Panda said on 10/Mar/15
Hey Rob, how tall do you think Tom Brady is? I know he is listed as 6'4" (193 cm) and the NFL tends to be pretty honest however since it was done in the morning there could be several heights he could be. I think Tom Brady (when measured) could be anywhere from as low as 6'3.5" to as high as 6'4.25" in the morning (assuming he loses 0.5 inch by the end of the day) Brady, imo, is anywhere between 6'3" to 6'3.75". How tall do you think Brady is? I'd say he's 6'3.5" (192 cm).
MaryAnne said on 8/Mar/15
I Remember when Adriana Lima, Gisele and Karolina went to TRL, Gisele and Karolina both said that they were 5'11 but then they stayed back to back and Karolina was heigher...
MaryAnne said on 2/Mar/15
She looks 1.77 next to Karolina. Just my opinion :)
joe 193cm night said on 20/Feb/15
here she is a volleyball player from Brazil Jaqueline Carvalho listed in 186cm
Laura said on 3/Feb/15
a solid 5'11" out of bed.
Just said on 1/Jan/15
More like 2 inches shy of 5'11 rather than 2 cms, since she's 2 inches shorter than 5'11 Karolina.
BGee said on 26/Nov/14
Just a cm or two shy of a full 5'11, and stunning all the same!
james said on 21/Nov/14
Gisele next to Karolina Kurkova and Karlie Kloss doesnt look any taller than 1.76 or 1.77, so 5ft9.5. 5ft10.5 is too much.
Fern194cm-192cm said on 5/Nov/14
Anyone who thinks she is 5,9 is not all there... If you watch her on Fallon she is barefoot and they are standing straight and he is in shoes (that give him at least an inch probably more though knowing Fallon) and so that would put him at least 6,0.5 and she was legit no more than 1-1.5 inches shorter. She is 5,10.5-5,11.
Asia said on 20/Jul/14
Bingo! Her agency lists her at 5 11" she's actually 5 9" looks tall because she's so thin. I was surprised when I saw her because she's listed at 5 11". Standing next to a true 5 11 girl like Kurkova shows she's not as tall as everyone thinks she is.
Just said on 18/Jul/14
With quite similar heels 5'11 Karolina Kurkova is almost 2 inches taller than Gisele. Click Here Click Here So no way Gisele is 5'10"5. Those pictures certainly destroy Gisele's 5'11 claim. She's 5'9"5 max.
Don't you agree that the evidence is quite convincing, Rob?
176,2Tunman said on 19/May/14
Seemed towered by 194 Brady despite probable heels advantage,she's rather 177-8

rob, please could you do a height mention of russian supermodel Natalia Vodianova ?
she's even actress from the hollywood film which called 'clash of the titan'.. And, she is a industry icon of the fashion world recently.

So yeah, Gisele is definitely 177cm.

Gisele is 5'9"5 max. Especially in those pictures next to Karlie Kloss who towers over her. She never claimed 5'10"5.
Just said on 4/Dec/13
Karlie is 6'1, so Gisele is 5'9.
Jan said on 30/Nov/13
Toni Garrn is actually listed at 6'0 to 6'1. So she towers DiCaprio. Gisele is 5'9.5" or 5'10" max.
yoyo said on 15/Nov/13
Gisele is at least 5'10...Karlie Kloss just might be 6'4 or 6'3 1/2...she's a giantess!
George said on 11/Nov/13
Weak 5'9", strong 5'8". Next to Karlie Kloss (a solid 6'1") and both wearing the same heels Gisele was near to Karlie's nose
John said on 7/Nov/13
Rob, please put a picture of her standing next to karlie kloss at the recent YSL event (bellazon and search kloss). Karlie is 5-6 inches taller than Gisele. Gisele is not taller than 5-9. Katlie says she is 6-1, which means she is probably at least 6-2. Gisele looks like a midget next to her. There is no way she is 5-10 or even 5-11. If that is true, karlie is 6-4
strange said on 1/Sep/13
she cant be taht height..look at her next to dicaprio. he was always taller than her.
However, his new girlfriend, Toni Garnn actually seems a bit taller than him and is actually listed as shorter than Bndchen (Garrn at 178)..
so a bit of a contradiction

She can't be over 5 feet 9. She was at an event recently and next to the backdrop, Karlie Kloss (who is listed at 6 foot 1 but is taller than that), was at least 5 inches taller. Look at

Rob please do a height for alessandra ambrosia
[Editor Rob: I Gave her one]
Jess said on 4/Sep/12
She's no more than 5'10". She's the exact same height as Adriana Lima maybe a hair shorter. She looks taller than she is because she has a lean figure with no hips and very shapely legs. So she looks very long and lean. But when you look at her next to the 5'11" and taller models you can definitely see the difference.
The Dutch Guy. said on 11/Aug/12
She's between 5'9.25" and 5"9.5"
Clara said on 6/Feb/12
Gisele is not 5'11! I'm brazilian and for my entire life I have always heard Gisele is 177cm :)
aspa said on 29/Jan/12
in ths Click Here photo, alessandra is at least 2 inches shorter than lima. lima is 179cm alessandra is 178 according to their agencies.not possible,really.
Sasha said on 25/Jan/12
Arguing about 1cm looks strange. The difference between morning and evening heights of some people may be 2-2.5cm. Also, the method of measuring may give a variance. For example, if someone stands very-very straight and tries be as tall as possible, he would be measured near 1cm taller than if he (she) would stand straight but rather relaxedly. I even don't say about the deviations, which different measuring devices have. So we may say, that Gisele is in 178-181 range dependently of the time of a day and the way of measuring. :)
Sunny said on 21/Jan/12
Ideal height for a supermodel is 5"10. If she would be 5"10,5 the agents will list her at 5"10.. See models like Candice and Adriana... The agents both list them at 5"10, but Adriana is clearly 1 or maybe 2 inches taller when she is standing next to Candice. 5"11 is for most agents the maximum.
I believe Gisele is a strong 5"11 .
And about the shoesize.. Im 5"11,5 woman, and I wear shoesize 8 (39EU). Shoe size doesn't say anything about the height.
AKK said on 14/Oct/07
I'm sorry, but I have to laugh a little. "A tall girl" I have no problem with a woman being taller than me, and I think that women always wanting men taller than them(you) is just as bad as men always wanting women shorter than them(Ray). :)
Anonymous said on 28/Sep/07
She's 5'10". I see no picture proof of her being 5'11" and I am a fan of her and have seen her with many other models. Next to Karolina she is always at least a bit shorter (and no Karolina isn't 6').
Legs said on 22/Sep/07
Well Gisele likes to wear ultra flat shoes; sometimes they don't even have a sole to them. Tom likes to wear thick soled sneakers. This is where that difference comes in he looks 6'6 while she is still 5'10.
Anonimus said on 11/Sep/07
Next to Tom Brady she doesn't look 5'11. And the 5'10 is questionable. that's of course, if Tom Brady is only 6'4.
Legs said on 6/Sep/07
there no doubt that gisele is 5'10, she looks 5'10 when she stands next to 6'4 tom brady. Next to him, she stands a taller than his shoulders.
mary said on 3/Sep/07
actually my friend boyfriend claims he saw her in nyc like 2 years ago and she looks around 5'10-5'11. She looks tall on the runway I believe that. I mean the shorter girls stand out and she always on the taller end of the models. I say 5'11.
Legs said on 2/Sep/07
Anonymous, have you met Gisele or adriana in real life or know someone that has met them in real life or do you just believe what her modeling agencies says they are. Modeling agency do exaggerate statistics.
Anonymous said on 30/Aug/07
Adriana is 5'10" no doubt in my mind she is. Alessandra looks more 5'8" than Adriana. Maybe 5'8.5".
Bebe said on 26/Aug/07
Correction, I meant to say Adriana looks more like 5'8. And as for u d83, now that makes it a 2 inch difference. Are u gonna ask me now how I can tell 2 inches? yeah, I agree with Legs...
d83 said on 26/Aug/07
as a person who is 5'5'', i dont know how you can distinguish a one inch difference...
Legs said on 22/Aug/07
yeah I have seen Gisele and adriana standing next to each other and Gisele is definitely 5'10 and adriana is 5'8
Bebe said on 22/Aug/07
I've met Giselle Bundchen and Adriana Lima at a Perfume promotion at Victoria's Secret, and I have stood next to them when posing for a Pic, and I must say, standing at 5'5,Giselle looks about 5'10 next to me, and Adriana Lima looks about 5'9.

this is as good evidence as it can get. This was done on MTV because she claimed they were like 6'4'' in heels and the host wanted to know who was taller...when they compared them and found out Karolina was taller, she got a little annoyed and gave this whatever attitude. She definitely likes to be taller than she already is. No way, she is 5.10.5"
Anon said on 15/Aug/07
This is so pathetic. who really gives a heap of sh'it whether someone is tall or not.

People are so judgemental.
Do you not think tal girls are already self consieous about there height?
and then when they read this rubbish.
especially who ever that 'somebody' person is.
your so shallow.
you just need to grow a couple of inches and then youd understand you hobbit.
Hannah said on 11/Aug/07
Most agencies lie about their models height. Me knowing personally because I'm a model myself and I know that they add height. They usually add as much as 1 inch because 2 inches is a little too much.
So yeah a lot of these girls aren't as tall as they seem except for some who are really tall like Gisele, Tyra, and of coure Karolina.
I really don't think the other girls are that tall!
Legs said on 10/Aug/07
"A tall Girl" just out of curiosity, if you don't mind, how tall are you parents?? I am a young girl and I am trying to predict my final height so I always ask tall woman how tall they are and their parents.
Legs said on 10/Aug/07
"A tall Girl" if you are 6'1 and you husband is 6'10 that does not make you daughters automatically tall. Remember everyone has recessive genes too. Your daughters will be tall 5'9< but 6' guarantee there.
Legs said on 10/Aug/07
Ana Beatriz- 5'11
Alessandra- 5'9
Adriana- 5'10
Gisele- 5'10
Karolina- 5'11
modeling agencies fudge measurements about models to get more clients and boost the image of their models. I have heard celebrity news shows comment saying Gisele is 5'11 and other saying 6'0 when she is actually closer to 5'9 to 5'10. Also Alessandra is only quoted as being 5'10 by her agency; almost every other site says she is 5'9. Plus in the pictures of her and adriana, Ale is slightly shorter but much hotter. Go Ale!!!

Kate Moss is 5'5"-5'6" and Devon Aoki is 5'4"-5'5". Plenty of models are below 5'9". Snejana Onopka, Sasha Pivovorava, Lily Donaldson, Jeisa Chiminazzo are all top models and at least an inch below 5'9". Gisele is 5'10" but her agency bumps her up to 5'11" or 5'10.5". Karolina Kurkova is 5'11", Alessandra Ambrosio is 5'8.5" or 5'8", Adriana Lima is 5'10", Selita Ebanks is 5'7", and Izabel Goulart is a bit above 5'9". This is all well known on fashion forums.

Keddy said on 20/Jul/07
well, supermodel and model are two different thing. Supermodel minimums height is 5'8 until kate moss broke the record for being the shortest supermodel, that was THEN in d Guiness world record, NOW came Devon aoki, shes regarded to be the shortest only 5'6. Can't believe giselle broke Elle's record after 20 years of Elle's success! I still love Elle!
someone said on 19/Jul/07
look this goregeous woman is the highest paid supermodel in the WORLD. and she is 5'11. any women who is tall should look to her for a condfence boost cause being tall is a gift and they should be proud. i'm 5'3 and i would KILL to bee that tall and regal. and to be a model you have to be 5'9 or taller they won't take anyone shorter, except kate moss but she's the only model who's 5'7. which is considered short in the modeling world.

"a tall girl" -- if you take an organismic biology or a biostat class, you'll learn abt something called "moving towards the mean". your daughters might not grow to 6'3" even if you and your husband are very tall people.

People, stop! This page is for dicussing Gisele height - not your own. Every height is OK - you cannot change it anyway!
somebody said on 24/May/07
honestly ... ive never seen a real hot girl who was clearly over 59 in private life ... i mean believing statistics only about 5 percent of the female population is over 510 so its logical that the possiblity to find an attractive girl in that height range is lower than in a height range below that represents 95 percent of the female population
all those supermodel girls are exceptions when it comes to a good combination of height and looks
the taller the girl, the better figure and proportions she has to have ... a normal heihgt girl around 54 - 55 whos thin looks petite, a 6 ft girl looks like a spider cause of her long thin arms and legs ... the other way if a tall girl is overweight she might have a broader back and a more massive body than most of the guys around ... who finds that attractive?
to "a tall girl": sorry, whether you are fake or you must be joking ... you cant really think that its awesome that your daughters will be around 63 ... you can lie to yourself as much as you want but its a fact that your daughters will suffer massively from that height ... talking about clothes, shoes, men
when it comes to female height its the other way round to male height ... most of the guys wont pay too much attention on a girls height as long as you are somehow around the average, no problem if you are half a head shorter than that ... its the same as most women dont really pay too much attention on a guys height as long he isnt clearly shorter (an head or something) than the average, where its no problem if hes taller as much as a girl can be shorter than average
im talking about "normal" people and the vast majority of the population, not from contributors of this site who are obviously very height-concious ;)
another tall girl said on 13/May/07
look im like 6ft 6'1" and i find it hard being tall sometimes-like some guys can be really slack-but like ciara, a tall girl and 5'11.5 guy, its not like people can make generalisations saying that all guys or most guys like tall women or short women of whatever-all guys are different. I mean girls or guys can be really hot whether they're hot or tall-it just depends on whose the judge-and (espcially to ciara) if your the judge who really gives a f**k? :P
5'11.5 guy said on 5/May/07
"A tall girl", women like you are morons. Firstly, most short women do not envy tall women. Second, you've displayed the same degree of narrow-mindedness as Ray by saying you will only date men taller than you. Grow up.
A tall girl... said on 4/May/07
Ray, men like you are morons. Tall women are beautiful and often the envy of their shorter counterparts. Only insecure men think women should be 5'3". I personally am 6'1" and refused to date short men (anyone shorter than me), and married a man who is 6'10". My daughters will be about 6'3" or so, and that's awesome!
Ciara, if a man is as small minded as Ray, don't bother to waste your time on their opinions--they only show their insecurities.

Ciara, Yes to me I prefer tall girls. I like girls between 5'9" to 6'3". I am only 5'1" and girl who tower over me are just so......wonderful.
Ugh said on 6/Apr/07
To Ciara - girl, girl GIRL!! Don't let the opinions of others take place before your own. What Ray said is true of some men, but isn't necessarily the norm. Tall women are often described as "amazonian" or "exotic." But it's all in how you hold yourself - if you hate your height, you'll appear awkward. Love yourself and all "flaws" become attractive.

Hey Ciara, most guys I know like girls to be between 5'2" and 5'5". I personally am not into tall girls. Girls wanting to be tall is like guys wanting to be short. Girls should be short...that's what I think anyway. The perfect height for a girl is 5'3" or thereabouts.
Ciara said on 31/Mar/07
to all the male people here. please tell me if height is really important to you. i mean, is it important to be tall as a girl? is it a disadvantage to be small? do boys prefer tall girls? what is the perfect height for a girl? and what the minimum? please answer!! i need your help! xx thanks
dmeyer said on 10/Mar/07
a friend of mine who is a photographer thinks me and her are the same height so she must be close so if i am 180 she is 179
Jameson said on 6/Mar/07
I don't know if this is relevant, but a friend of mine who luckily got a picture with her (she's my same height), when she bent over to pick up a hair pin on a nearby stool, she was a 90 degree angle and she swore she met her height.
Jameson said on 6/Mar/07
I'm only 5'0", and when I was at the Victoria's Secret show during the holidays, it almost seemed like her tall, really long, sexy legs were just about the size I am! I never got to get a picture with her, but after standing next to her that other know what I mean
Anonymous said on 5/Mar/07
Actually Karolina is more 181 cm or 180. If you see her in pics with other models like Caroline Trentini. Also Gisele is probably 178-179 while Karolina is 180-181.
Anny said on 16/Feb/07
You know what I think... I think that kurkova is taller than 180 cm! i think she is like 183 cm. Gisele is definitely 179-180!
shady said on 6/Feb/07
rob can you make one for karolina kurkova and alessandra ambrosio.
Lani said on 5/Feb/07
she is 5"10. if you search on gettyimages and see all the latest pics of the victoria secret 06 show. she is ALWAYS i mean ALWAYS shorter than karolina kurkova and kurkova is definitely a legit 5"11. The photos show them in full length. and when they were on TRL they even did a height comparison between gisele n karolina. and karolina was taller. the host even said "umm i think karolina is a bit taller". they had same height stilettos on.

yer-coverting cm straight to feet doesnt work. you take the 5, so 5 ft and then convert the remainder into inches. Math is obviously not UR thing! FYI.... Duhhhhh. You still probably dont get it.

the heels realy do get u every time though, theres this pic of her on a shoot on a beach in rio ive been ther nd the rock she stands next to is just up to my forehead, im 511 - 6
MathIsNotYourThing said on 25/Jan/07
FYI: 179cm converts to 5.87' so stop saying she is 5'10"!!! Duh!

[Editor Rob: yes and .87 feet = 10.44 inches. Doh, I guess you're the one in need of some math tuition!]
Anonymous said on 27/Dec/06
I agree with Ben. She's a solid 5'10", no more no less.
Ben said on 16/Dec/06
Same all the other models. She is always wearing shoes that lift her up to 4 or 5 inches, so you just get overwhelmed by her. If you´ve ever stood beside a 6-2/3 woman you know what I mean. Another thing is that she looks good and has, of course, an excellent body, which is another point that overruns you as well. In my opinion she is 5-10, no more.
Jameson said on 1/Dec/06
I've met a lot of tall women, and when I met her, she seemed to be 6'0.
Maybe it was because her towering height overwhelmed me.
Anonymous said on 23/Nov/06
Karolina is 5'11" and Gisele is 5'10", maybe she was mismeasured. She only looked 5'9.5" at like 15/16. I think she's 5'10" now. In pics with Karolina and Adriana she almost never looks taller than Adriana and more than half the time looks shorter but always looks shorter than Karolina. If she were really 179 she would look Karolina's height but she doesn't.
CrazyPeople said on 21/Jul/06
I used to post under 'Anonymous' but it seems like other people are using it too, so from now on, I'm CrazyPeople.
First of all, from what I know, Gisele was 178cm at 15. When she moved to New York, she was measured at 179 cm by her first agency. That's how tall I think she is. Not exactly 5'11... but just slightly under. I've been around Gisele more times than you know, because I work in the industry, and I've never went, "She's definitely not 5'11... 5'10.75 sounds more accurate to me." The difference is so minute, I don't see the point in people obsessing over one tiny cm. If you measure a person's height in feet, you're going to get a lot of rounding up and rounding down. Gisele is 179 cm, period. People here seem to think she's either 5'10 or 5'11, and it must be one or the other.
Take it from a person who knows. Never ever, ever judge a person's height by a photo. It doesn't mean anything. ESPECIALLY when people like Gisele have a very distinctive way of posing. Gisele has very narrow hips, so she constantly CONSTANTLY arches her back or juts her hips out to make herself look curvier. That's her trademark. Just look at any picture of her, and she's contorting her body one way or other. And Karolina is not a full inch taller than Gisele! That's complete rubbish! Karolina is taller, but not by an inch.
All the Victoria's Secret Girls are pretty much around the same height. Karolina is about 180cm, Gisele 179cm, Adriana 178cm, Alessandra is about 176 I think. She's definitely a lot taller in person tham in pictures.
sianna said on 11/Jul/06
could you put up the height listings of the other victoria's secret models...adriana lima..karolina kurkova..alessandra ambrosiso...just so we can compare
Anonymous said on 5/Jul/06
i believe what i see in the pictures big ups to the photos showing karolina n gisele back to back straight posture this shows us karolina is definitely taller than gisele. giving gisele the height of 5'10
jiji said on 10/Jun/06
well. i always thought that gisele was about 5"10 or 5"11, but then i read lauren weisbereger's book "the devil wears Prada". and there is one page where is told that "gisele bundchen was certainly short"... so now i don't know what should i believe? but in "the devil wears Prada" incluedes many weird things. like Narciso Rodriguez is written "Narcisco Rodriguez" in that book. and that's wrong cuz it's Narciso. and Alberta Ferretti is also written wrong in the's "Alberto Ferretti" in it. so...i really have to say it's not very trustful source, but any way.
honey said on 9/Jun/06
nah karolinas actually taller. they even say it in the interview! click on kampioens first link. and they show the interview. and the host askes them wow u guys r tall how tall r u guys? and gisele responds oh we r 6"4 in heels (which i think is an exaggeration) and karolina goes maybe 6"3. but then karolina and gisele go back to back. and the host actually says nah karolinas taller. and giseles like ok ok. see guys! right there. the answer is right there.
ds said on 1/Jun/06
Oh and Ana Beatriz Barros is NOT 6'. I saw countless pics of her with Adriana Lima (5'10") and Oluchi (can't spell her last name, but she's 6'1") She was either Lima's height or an inch taller and was several incehs shorter than Oluchi. Ana is 181-182 cm. Her sister is 172 cm and I know people who know their family. Somebody mentioned that even though PAtricia is older, she's almost 10cm shorter.
ds said on 1/Jun/06
Karolina looks 2 inched taller or maybe 1.5, but the heels are different and the poses so you can't compare.
kampioen said on 27/May/06
It's true, Honey; they did a height comparison, and Karolina was the tallest of the two. Watch it here: Click Here

Most girls stop growing at 16. If both your parents are short it seems that 5'6 is the most you can be. But don't worry! 5'6 is above average for girls. By the way, pilates and yoga does not actually make you taller, it just improves your posture but is excellent exercise.
svetlana said on 13/May/06
i'm 5'6' and i want to be 5'10. i'm 16. do you think i have a chance of growing that tall. my parents are short...but i've been doing yoga and palates and eating well. i'm really desperate to grow. p.s.giselle is so hottt.
Cardiology Phantom said on 6/May/06
Your very lucky to be tall... I just became thirteen and I am 5'2. Hey Gisele how tall do you think I am going to be when I am 18 years of age. Oh, by the way my parents are both 5'5. What do you think? I am a girl...
Kats said on 5/May/06
No, I don't just "want to be right." I thought you might come back to me saying that just because I've read about modeling doesn't mean I know everything. And you're right. There could definitely be inside stuff I couldn't possibly know about. The part I disagreed with you about just seemed too far fetched to me in most situations. I have figured their are exceptions to everything though.

By the way, what kind of work was this girl getting when she was 5'4?
Anonymous said on 20/Apr/06
Oh, so you've 'read' a lot about modeling huh? You must be one of those people who think you know a lot about something because you've read bits and pieces of info here and there. Well, let me tell you it's one thing to READ about something and an entirely other thing to actually KNOW something. I KNOW. Even male models have their heights fudged. There are some 5'11 guys who are listed at 6'2, and some 6'4 guys listed way way shorter. There's even a girl right now who gets a lot of work who was 5'4 a few years ago... she's 5'8 now and only 17. So growth spurts aren't unusual, even for tall girls. There is some girl who shot up 2 inches in one season. You can only guess how tall she is. You probably disagree with me, but that's probably because you want to be right. And at some level, you are. But it doesn't exactly sound like you know anything about the business aside from the things you've read. Just take it from me... that's how the business works.

And please, save the moral judgements for elsewhere.
Kats said on 8/Apr/06
Anonymous, I still disagree. Perhaps you are partly correct when you say a more tall model will be slightly rounded down in the event she grows more. But a 5'11 15 year old who can make it in modeling is NOT likely to grow much more if at all. I doubt they give a 2 inch cushion for pete sakes! Many 15 year olds are done growing, particularly the tall ones, and the ones that look "old" enough to make a good model. They're pretty much done. I've read a lot about modeling and I've never heard of any of this EVER. The only thing I've heard is a 6'0 or more will get put at 5'11, since that is within the "ideal" 5'9-5'11. If a true 5'11 girl is young and will grow more, I believe she is listed as 5'11 and that height is kept despite any growth--because as I said, it is so rare to have a great deal of growth. Part of what you're saying makes some sense, but I still believe it's off.

And calling people a "dumb ass" on here doesn't make you look great. The "shutup" comment toward you was harsh, but "getting even with the other Anonymous (btw, why don't you people pick names)" was lame.

Ujane, Moscow said on 29/Mar/06
I think, that she looks like my girlfriend, perhaps a lil lower, cuz my is 181cm or 5ft. 11in. she is a model..When I saw Taxi wit Giesele I thought than wit heels she will tower me(if I`m in dress-shoes), cuz I`ma 6ft 1.5-2in but really it is not so. Conclusion: if you`re just 6-7cm taller than your GF don`t afraid if she suddenly ask you about her wearing heels.)))) Have a good luck!
Anonymous said on 21/Mar/06
I also forgot to add...
the agncy will round the height down because the girl is likely to grow a bit taller. If she grows too tall, that may scare a client away... and agencies don't really like changing the height stat on the model's comp cards season after season.
Anonymous said on 21/Mar/06
To Anonymous who commented on March 8. You're a dumb ass. Let's just say I can actually tell, on a regular basis, how tall a model rally is besides looking at them from pictures. And Kats - Yes that is how the industry works. There are tons of girls who are actually 5'11 but get rounded down. It may not make sense to you, but it does happen. Let's say a girl is 5'11 or taller. Now, 5'9 - 5'11 is the ideal model height, but if that 5'11 girl is 15 years old, the agency will make a decision to round her height down because she is probably likely to grow a couple more inches.
PB said on 8/Mar/06
Just a few days ago on ABC's Good Morning America, she said that she is 5'11" tall.
Anonymous said on 8/Mar/06
>>>to the anonymous. just shutup. wheres ur backup evidence?? r u a model ur self or work at a model agency?
Kats said on 1/Mar/06
To Anonymous not far below me: I don't think I agree with 5'11 models being downgraded to 5'10 because that's the way the industry works. In general, the industry does not have a problem with listing a model as 5'11 when they are probably very close to 5'11.

It's funny Star Magazine recently put Gisele at 5'9 when that magazine is known to give celebrities more height. And People Magazine saying the same thing is curious. I'll need to observe more (if I can even come up with anything) but for now I think she is 5'9 1/2--5'10.

anonymous said on 23/Feb/06
Ok...just because you guys WANT everyone to believe that you are right about a model's height, doesn't make it TRUE. Yeah, right like any of you have been to a real fashion show...or met any of the models. No one buys that.
Anonymous said on 18/Feb/06
Some of you people don't even know what the hell you're talking about. Seriously. Just because you want someone to be a certain height, doesn't mean they are. Just because you see someone listed at a certain height, doesn't mean it's true. Just because someone doesn't look a certain height, doesn't mean you're right. Karolina is DEFINITELY 5'11. Gisele is 5'10.5 Ana Beatriz is right at 6'0. Do you people work or know anyone who work at the agencies? I doubt it. But even so, a lot of the industry people don't even know the exact height of the models. Like I've said before, there are models who are damn near 6'2, but are rounded down to 5'11 (Tiiu Kuik, Hana Soukupova, Michelle Buswell). And there are even 5'11 girls that are rounded down to 5'10. That's the way the industry works.
ds said on 8/Feb/06
I met Leonardo and he seemed not even 6'. I think 178 is pretty accurate...karolina kurkova like I said before was listed at 179cm in some places...I swore I even saw 178 once...
ds said on 8/Feb/06
I saw Karolina Kurkova at 179 I think thats more accurate...seeing as why would you round down a 5'11" girl...
foxxy said on 5/Feb/06
duh why do u think she was massive semak is because ur short anyway and any girl who is 5"5 would think 5"10 or 5"11 or 6"0 tall girl is a giant. but anyway my point is gisele is fricken 5"10 god dammit her legs dnt look long enough to be 5"10. i jst look at her and i dnt see 5"11 match her physique. being 5"10 myself you would understand. i mean im sure theres some other girls on here who are 5"10 you could tell urselves what another 5"10 girl looks like. u may think wtf is she on about but im trying to explain myself. its complicated. and yes ana b is 5ft11 and 1/4 and definitely looks it. not 6ft
tayla said on 1/Feb/06
ana b barros is 5"11 & 1/4 . Gisele is about an inch shorter. I don't think it's quite here or there.

Tayla, Ana Beatriz is 6'0 tall, not 5'11. And Estel... do you mind revealing who you are? You say you did a Marc Jacobs show with Gisele, but that must have been about 2 years ago because that was the last time Gisele did a MJ show...

In a brazilian magazine ("SET" a movie magazine) she said she was 1,78m ,one years ago. In Sao Paulo fashion week, she said the same to a tv reporter. Maybe the international fame makes people get taller.

Tayla said on 2/Jan/06
wow ok jst looking at pics of ana beatriz barros (5"11) and then gisele who claims to be 5"11 and is tricking everyone. giseles body proportions are slightly shorter than anas. she cant be 5 ft 11 it just looks to tall for all her photos i see. and al the photos i see of legitimate 5"11 girls all look very tall. so yeah in foxxys comment everyone take a look at the link and it shows karolina kurkova walking past gisele (her back turned) down the runway. and there is a photo where they are walking past the same point ( so you wont complain about the distance that might affect the height) and gisele is visibly shorter. and finally we have full length body pics and their heels look the standard height both the same about 3 inches. so there you go people. GISELE IS 5"10 (178CM)

hey look at this site linkall these pics of karolina kurkova walking down the runway and some show her walking past gisele bundchen. and karolina is clearly taller than gisele so gisele i reckon is 5ft10. look at all these pics and you can see and inch difference between the latest victoria secret fashion show karolina (5"11) and gisele who i can now say is really 5"10
Anonymous said on 20/Dec/05
Gisele is 5'10.5
She was quoted as 178 cm when she was 15 and modeling in Brazil... then when she hit New York, one of her agencies listed her at 179cm. When she became the ubermodel that she is now, I think people rounded it up to 180cm. I shatted with Gisele outside the tents during NY fashion week a few years ago, and she is definitely 5'10.5 - 5'11. Modeling agencies are notorious for rounding the height of their girls up and down... For instance... a girl who is 5'7 will be rounded up to 5'9... a 5'9.5 girl will be rounded up to 5'10, a 6'1 girl will be rounded down to 5'11 (There's a lot of girls these days that are 6'0 plus). I think some of her agencies rounded her up to 5'11. No biggie... just half an inch. Just look at footage of her on the runways (when she was still doing high fashion) and compare her to the other models that are taller than her like Karolina Kurkova, Michelle Alves and Carolina Ribeiro, who are all legitimately 5'11.
Anonymous said on 20/Dec/05
serious nou nou?. do u have photos at least like full length body ones of you and gisele you can show us. you should of asked her to take photos next to you, or measure her haha or even take a photo of her nxt to a measuring tape or metre we can confirm for sure that she is 5 ft 10 or 5 ft11. or say to her are you just lying about your height? cuz everyone is talking about it. the only way we are gonna find out ( the people that cant meet her in real life) is compare her to a supermodel who is a legit 5 ft 11 or taller. and frickin full body shots for godsake. upper body shots aint gonna get us anywhere and barefeet would help. and actual real life photos paparazii take, not high fashion photos because we all know most of em are all airbrushed to make them look taller/skinnier/perfect. no makeup or lighting to create any false illusions. u catch my drift?
Nou_Nou said on 19/Dec/05
My mother is friends with Leo di Caprio's mother and we got invited round to Leo's house 4 dinner and Gisele was there and she told me that she was 5"11 and she definitely looked it because i am 5"10 and she was a tiny bit taller than me. She was wearing flip-flops too so there was no added height. So, Gisele IS 5"11 tall.
zephyr said on 14/Dec/05
Yeah Silvia in that pic of her and Heidi, who's 5'9", I definately see at least a 2 inch difference so maybe she is 5'11" she definately looks it.
Anonymous said on 11/Dec/05
Gisele is 5'10.5. And you people who are trying to decipher how tall she is through pictures are going absolutely nowhere. In most cases, she only appears shorter or taller because of an optical illusion. There are pictures of models that are 6'2 standing next to models that are 5'9, yet the taller girl looks the same height as the shorter girl. I guess you really just have to meet them first before you get an accurate assessment of their height. Gisele is not 5'9. And I'm absolutely positive.

Look at the thumbnail of Gisele with 5"11in sting. She appears to be about an inch or two shorter than him. Let's assume that she is wearing heels (although I can't be sure) because her outfit does seem fancy and flats don't usually match with clothes like that. If she was the same height as him shouldn't she be taller than him with heels?
Kisha said on 13/Sep/05
Gisele and Heidi look the same height in the picture. Somebody is lying about their height. I think that most models do. Heidi Klum actually admitted it.
Z2 said on 31/Jul/05
Also, this isn't the first time a model has rounded up to 5'11". In the 1980's, there was a model by the name of Gia Carangi who was always rounded to 5'11" by Wilhelmina Cooper. Wilhelmina was enthraulled with Gia's beauty and made Gia's career. Gia's height was lied about so that Gia could get work. Her agency rounded Gia's height from 5'8" all the way up to 5'11". In reality, Gia struggled to hit the 5'7" line.
Z2 said on 31/Jul/05
If Gisele was 5'7" at 13, then that would confirm her only being 5'9" in "50 Most Beautiful Magazine" back in 2000. I don't believe Gisele is 5'11". I think her height is 5'9". If she does appear taller, it's due to her thin figure. For example: If you're skinny enough, you can trick the eye into believing that your femurs are longer than they actually are. One could wear short-shorts so that their legs appear longer. So, someone who is 5'6" could appear to be 5'9"ish in a photo. I believe Gisele is one of these people who gives the illusion of being taller. Therefore, I belive Gisele's height is 5'9".
Anonymous said on 23/Jul/05
I read in a magazine (good source) 100% sure that when she was 13 years old she was 1m70 (5'7''). Did she grew that much? 3 or 4 inches in that time ? But she played volleyball so that helped , i guess....:(
Mr. X said on 22/Jul/05
The movie Taxi even says she's 5 ft 10. Also since supermodels are long and skinny it might give off the illusion of being taller.
kevin said on 5/May/05
yeah good pic and i agree with smoke. gisele is 5ft 10in at best and leo maybe one or a half inch taller then her. leo would be then close to 5ft 11in like i always said.
Smoke said on 5/May/05
Nice pic, but she's clearly standing closer to the camera, and can we even see if that's Leo? LOL! DiCaprio certainly isn't 6'1" that's for sure, but I think if they're standing evenly away from the camera Leo is still taller, she's 6'0' in 2 inch heals, but 5'10" at best without them. Check her out next to Jimmy Fallon without heals, and you'll see how much shorter she is than him.

Smoke said on 25/Apr/05
J. take a look at some pics of Heidi Klum, Gisele Bundchen, Tyra Banks, heck any female celeb, I think you're being rather generous if you think most of them only wear 3 inchers. Just because they are women doesn't mean they don't want to seem or appear taller than they actually are!

[Editor Rob: from what I see I think 3-inch is the average...but you are right in that 3.5-4.5 inch heels are seen a lot on some of the high-profilers]
J. said on 25/Apr/05
Normal heels would be 3" inchers. The most common heel size for most women.
Smoke said on 25/Apr/05
J. what are normal heals for a model? I think normal heals for a model are 3-4 inches, granted Kravitz is one guy who doesn't quite look his 5'11" listing, but if you've ever seen any pictures of video footage of Gisele or any other model for that matter out of heals, it's like Jeckyll and Hyde. This is kind of off topic, but I caught Kassie DePaiva (soapstress) during her appearance on The View and was shocked to see her listed at 5'10", apparently it's not just male celebs who greatly exaggerate their height!
J. said on 24/Apr/05
Yeah, I think she's probably in the 5'9.5"-5'10" myself. Her boniness makes her seem taller. I do remember at the MTV Awards back in 2000 or so, she presented an award with Lenny "5'11" Kravitz and she towered over him with normal heels on. So who knows?
Mr. R said on 23/Apr/05
I agree that Gisele is not 5-11, but closer to 5-10. But I think Leo is a half inch over 5-11.
xaoxio said on 22/Apr/05
I think we need a revision of her height.
I think she's closer to 5'10"(for example - and after all posts that I've read about models(which exaggerate their height a little bit)- I really DO doubt in her "so-called" 5'11".
Smoke, Mr.R , all - join in!!!
