Kate Moss height: 5ft 6in (168 cm)

English Model. In a 1999 interview magazine article said: "In the beginning, my agent said to me, "If you were two inches higher, you'd have two more zeroes at the end of your bank account." I was five foot six and if I was five foot eight and had, say, a 4B cup, then I would have been fine.". At her agency her vital stats are given as: Height 5ft 7.5, Bust/Bra Size: 34 inches, Waist Size: 23 inches, Hips: 35in, Dress Size 4 and shoe size 7.

Click Here In this picture Kate is visibly shorter than Lana Del Rey (who is listed here as 5ft 6in), even though Kate is wearing high heels and Lana is only wearing kitten heels. She looks around the same height as Alexa Chung in flats (who is listed as 5ft 8.5in on here)

Click Here she is about 5.4 (if considered without heels) here, standing next to 5.7-5.8 noel gallagher

Look at pics of her next to Rita Ora who I think is listed at 5'5 on this site. If Rita is 5'5, then Kate definitely looks to be more 5'4.

apparently marc jabobs is 5 foot 9 and she looks an inch taller than him in his shoes which probably add an inch to his height so she must be at least 5 foot 11 in the photo. her heels look pretty high but she must be at least 5ft 6 to 5ft 7

I just think it's really cool when model's are less than 5'9! I hate how the agents lie and up their heights though. What is their thinking behind that anyway? Obviously the companies will find out their real height when they're shooting them...

@someone:
Cara is 5'6" maximum. As an obsessive fashion enthusiast, my estimation for her against other models is around that height - she's four inches or so shorter than most of them, and they're mostly ~5'10". However, 6'+ is becoming much more common - Frida Gustavsson is 6'2", Karlie Kloss is 6'3" (her agencies have started inching her listed height up, she used to be marked as 5'11" and now they call her 6'1", which is a height she can afford to have on her compcards because of her success). Most models have their heights fiddled with to put them at around the same size as each other, which helps with uniformity of casting. Put Cara up by four inches, put Karlie down by four and there you have it - a fairly even runway lineup.

@SAK:
That's why I said ALMOST too tall.
From what I know, a model in the 173-176 range is considered short, 177-179 is "just right" and 180-183 is tall.

@FashionModel:
Cara Delevingne's real height is 5'8 and she is doing pretty well at the moment. Some VS models are under 5'9 as well. It's a lot harder for 5'8-5'9 girls to make a career in modeling than it is for the 5'10-5'11 ones, but it DOES happen...

@thc-182:
She has a great bone structure and a well-defined jawline. She is also very photogenic. There is definitely something about her.
Jonathan says on 9/Apr/13
She's 54. Look this: Click Here

i don't understand how she became a model with her height...and her face.
But i know a guy who is a model for H&M, he has participated at koh lanta(in French).On his website, he claims 6'.5" lol, i met him at the swimming, and he was more 5'10"...
FashionModel says on 6/Mar/13
Nowadays if you want to be successful in fashion modeling, you need to be at least 5'9 for women(5'10-5'11 much preferred, no more than 180cm) and for men 6'-6'2. Anyways, Kate Moss was 5'6 in her prime.
Elijah says on 7/Feb/13
@SAK: It's 182 actually, not 183. When you get to 181 it's a "sorry, bye bye" and when you get to 182 it's "welcome aboard".

5'11/181 would be exception.

@little sue: I heard that as well... was pretty dumb for them to think that she would grow 2 whole inches at that height though. A lot of girls are done at that age, and even those still growing, most wouldn't get another 2 inches.

She's awesome anyway. An ICON. :)

@Arch Stanton, 183-189cm is the ideal range for male models. 5f11 is acceptable for photographic modeling/catalog. And 6f3 is better suited for runway.
Arch Stanton says on 15/Jan/13
5'11 for a guy and 5'8" for a woman I think are the minimum requirements, most prefer at least 5'9 and 6' I think.
Arch Stanton says on 15/Jan/13
Yes that's true SAK for the women, but male model ideal is actually 180-188cm to my knowledge. 6 ft 3 is a little high for the main employers I think, and you'll get guys like David Gandy and Gabriel Aubry who are near 6'3" listed at 6'2". Gandy claimed 6'3" on Jonathan Ross and looks 189-90cm range, Aubry I thought looked 190cm range next to Bruce Willis, although somebody said he didn't even look 6'2" next to Welling which surprised me.
Arch Stanton says on 15/Jan/13
She looks the same height as Pamela Anderson actually in thinking about it. 5'6", possibly slightly under. At times she can seem taller but that's waif build and heels for you...
SAK says on 11/Jan/13
@little sue, good point.
little sue says on 7/Jan/13
Remember Kate was only about 14 when she was 'found' the Modelling agency who signed her up probably thought she may grow a bit more but never did.

sorry to break this to you erika, but 180 cm is almost too tall for a model...ideal height is 178 cm...(im guessing you are 180 cm)
------------------------------------------------------------------
I wouldn't say 180cm is too for a female model. But it is the upper end of the requirement. Many runway models are 180cm. Most female models are between 173cm-182cm. 177-178cm being ideal.
Male models are between 183-191cm. 186-187cm being best.

Kate Moss is 5f6. Don't know how she got a break. There requirements a quite specific.

Rob, explain this to me, please. Why did you cite Kate's claim about 5'6 and then give her 0.25" less? A quarter of inch is not critical, but, as I noticed, you do in such way rather often. :) Do you think, that people like Kate Moss round their heights up?
[Editor Rob: I think most celebrities will say a round figure than come out with 5ft 5.5 or 5ft 5.75 etc.

in reality there are nearly as many people who would measure 5ft 5.5 as 5ft 6, but most who fall between 5ft 5.5-6 would naturally just round up.]

But if anything Rob she looks 5'6.5" more than 5'5.5...
lulo says on 11/Oct/12
Here she is with 5'6.5'' Matt Lucas (as listed on this site) she does look 5'6'', dare I say even a little bit less

She is not so tall, I though models should heve at least 180 centimetres.....Maybe in Britain it is enough
little sue says on 4/Aug/12
But 6 inch heels would'nt give anyone 6 inches, maybe only about 4
Emmanuelle says on 3/Aug/12
I've met Kate. I'm 5'11.5" myself, and she was in six-inch heels, making her exactly the same height as me. She's 5'5.5".
Sasha says on 5/Feb/12
Rob, this all understandable. But why can't Kate be 5'6.25" as well? Would she round her height down in this case???
(I ask this not only because of my curiosity. :) I saw her listed 170-172cm on different sites. So I thought, that 5'6" is absolute minimum for her.)
[Editor Rob: if I thought she was 5ft 6-6.5 range I might have listed her that mark.]
