Yeah, 5'7 3/4 range.
James (179cm) Jones said on 19/Apr/23
5'7 ½ - 5'7 ⅞ for Rihanna.
And ASAP Rocky has to be 5'9 ¾ - 5'10 range imo
Yaspaa said on 15/Apr/23
I had no idea she was this tall. The girl has everything going for her.
5'10 Dude said on 9/Oct/22
Footwear can makes judging height differences a bit tricky I believe. If ASAP Rocky is 5'10 I could see Rihanna being maybe a little bit under 5'8.
Alanna said on 8/Jun/22
Looks a solid 5’8 to me. Can’t see her under that.

She is 172 cm, maybe 173 cm in mornings

I think she is a solid 5'8.5"(174)
She is clearly tall for a woman
Ice (Original) said on 8/Jan/22
Okay, I'm definitely convinced she is 5'7.25" now. One, Ciara often edges her out. She's not taller than Ciara. Two, she is consistently about two inches taller than Beyonce. My guesses are:

Ciara 5'7.5"
Rihanna 5'7.25"
Katy Perry 5'6.5"
Beyonce 5'5"
J-Lo 5'4"
Shakira 5'1"

I think Shakira and Beyonce's heights are paired. There are a solid for inches there. Beyonce has J-Lo by at least an inch. Katy Perry always looks about an inch shorter than Rihanna, or close to it.
Soetan said on 16/Oct/21
Out of bed - 172.7 cm
Before bed - 170.8 cm
Solid 5'7, but no more
Soetan said on 20/Sep/21
Been looking at all her photos with Beyoncé and she never looks taller, if anything she looks shorter, but maybe she just have bad proportions
Soetan said on 20/Sep/21
I think she needs to be downgraded to 5'7 - 7½, never looks a full 5'8 to me. Also looks clearly shorter than 5'10 ASAP Rocky, despite being on 3-4 inch heels
Elene said on 3/Sep/21
Now I think she is 5’8 because she is taller than Kety perry I think both the ladies are telling the truth
Stinky 186 cm said on 29/Aug/21
Yeah I agree she’s about a legit 5’ 8”
Veronica Yang said on 23/Aug/21
5'8 sounds right. If Brooklyn Decker is truly 5'9, she is definitely 5'8 since Rihanna looks around 1 inch shorter than her Click Here
Elene said on 7/Aug/21
169 is too low,she is maybe 172 cm,I will go 5’7.75 for her
Daniel Lee said on 30/Jul/21
She doesn't give a 5'8 impression in photos with other people, her appearance looks shorter than that too. Around 5'7.5" for Riri.
Slim Shady said on 24/Jul/21
Rihanna is 5”7.5 in most of her videos with Eminem I have seen her in the same height of Eminem

Rob I can’t see Rihanna standing a full 5’8”. She is the same height as Cara or maybe just a cm taller max.
Maybe it’s time for a little downgrade ? x

Between 172.5-173.5
Mbong said on 1/Jan/21
Rob, any case of 5'7.5-75 for her. She struggles to look a full 5'8 most of the time. Looked at least two inches shorter than Drake even on 3-4 heels and she doesn't look taller than Eminem, if anything he looked taller to me when they were in flats.
Arch Stanton said on 25/Nov/20
Looks 5 ft 10 in the above photo but it's the heels giving the illusion of longer legs I think! There's a presenter on Ecuadorian news I've been watching for my Spanish who looks a lot like her, makes it so difficult to watch. :-).
Proppy said on 16/Nov/20
She is really beautiful. Saw her in person and if she wasn’t famous you would do a double take if you saw her walking in the street
Ice (Original) said on 10/Oct/20
From what I've seen, I have Rihanna at 5'7.25", Katy Perry at 5'6.5", Beyonce at 5'5" and Jennifer Lopez at 5'3.75". The most I can see is 1/2 inch higher for all these ladies, except J-Lo. I cannot see her being above 5'4"

Eminem is 5’7.5 unless he wears lifts, Rihanna could just edge him here, maybe a possible 5’7.75.

From that angle, the heels don't look that big, but it might be a little different from ground level, probably still a good 5ft 11 in them.

Guys that Dani Alves pic is CLEARLY warped look at the shape of his head, that picture is like a reverse fish eye pic the outsides are bigger and he is wearing boots, perspective matters in pics, just like the Eminem pic that gets used often he is standing in front so he looks bigger. The Dani Alves pic cannot be used look at his entire right side (our left) it’s stretched.
Zek? Nel said on 28/Mar/19
My cousin met her this year and she is 168 cm but Rihanna looked 2 inches shorter both in flat shoes but Rihanna’s had 4 cm heel I guess.

Jargon the wabbit interfered with the correct spelling of the word 'forte'. He has no intention of apologising either. He gets off on it. It isn't cricket, and to think I supported his escape attempts from the laboratory! 😥
Sandy Cowell said on 21/Feb/19
@ Mimi - Did you see Rihanna appearing in the movie 'This Is The End', a film in which the stars appear as themselves? I had to blink twice before I believed it was her, and since then I have gone on to discover that she's in other films as well!

And to think - I thought that singing was her fort. There's more to her than meets the eye! She looked super tall in the movie as well.... 💐🌸
Sandy Cowell said on 20/Feb/19
🎂🎁 Many Happy Returns Rihanna! 🎁🎂

You are wished your best Birthday ever and I hope you get loads of lovely presents including everything you've ever wished for on the Birthday present front.

You have a splendid height, and I wouldn't have minded a share of the 6 and-a-quarter inches that you have over me as a present for my recent Birthday! 😁👍📏 🍀 🎂🎁😀

A happy 31st birthday to the bad gal RiRi.🎉🎂 You most definitely will get a 173cm from me.
Michael 5'10", 178 cm said on 10/Jan/19
One of the girls who is honest about her height, a lot of them try to claim taller for some publicity or personal pride reason. Rihanna is 5'8", always looks decently tall for a young woman. She is 173 cm.
avery_t said on 23/Dec/18
I just a pic of her with a studio engineer I used to work with (Al Hemberger). Al is about 5' 8.5".She's about half an inch shorter.

@ Sandy Cowell - That's true, Sweatie would be very funny! I like the name Ri-Ri and I can also tell you that you are not alone in thinking that she is 5'8"!

Hey rob, i gotta say she needs an upgrade... I've seen her many many years ago at lax airport i guess and she was wearing flip flops. I'm 5'8" but surely she was taller than i was, maybe 5'9" ?

Guy on the left is professional footballer Dani Alves who's listed as 172cm on most sources I can find. I think there's a good chance he's under that listing, also keep in mind he wears some Chelsea boots in the picture.

It's obvious that Rihanna is leaning and therefore loosing some height, but how much is unknown.

What I'm trying to say is that she doesn't look 5ft8 in this picture.
Editor Rob
yeah she can seem shorter, but how much height she might lose I am not sure. I would say she is probably losing a bit more than dani there.
Peter175 said on 1/Dec/17
Rihanna is clear as day taller than Eminem, its not even up for discussion. She's 5'8-25 and he's 5'7.5-75

Huge fan.Met her ar anti world tour,she is very beautiful woman with long legs and well proportioned body.For her height I'd say she is 5'8.75 or you can round it up to 5'9.I am 5'7.5 or 171 cm here is a picture of us,both of us were in fenty puma sneakers Click Here

Rob what's your lowest and highest guess for her?Since a lot of people who have seen in her in person say she looks surprisingly tall
Editor Rob
I wouldn't go over 5ft 8, nor under 5ft 7, I could see her 5ft 7.5-7.75 at times.
Kelly said on 16/Jun/17
A strong 5'8
Lee168cm said on 6/Jun/17
Woukd she be 5'11 here rob or taller?
Editor Rob
those heels will measure a fraction over 3 inches, so if she is 5ft 8 then a bit over 5ft 11.

There is still a good chance she isn't a solid 5ft 8 but under.

I think you guys might be going too high on this one, she looks half an inch or so shorter than Eminem, a known weak 5'8" guy. I think she's more in the 5'7" range, still decent for a woman.

But yes, I can't see Rihanna as tall as 5'8'', I could be wrong but I think she's shorter

Very agree with @DefinitelyNotCC Rihanna is not taller than 171.5 cm. And she is also shorter than 5'8 Eminem

Click Here

I think she is asking for a downgrade
DefinitelyNotCC said on 26/Dec/16
Rob whats happening in that photo that @Johnson posted ? watching dani alves with other footballers he seems to be in the 171-172 range and rihanna looks alot shorter than him.
Editor Rob
CC, I simply think she is dropping more height there, how much is harder to really say though.
Johnson said on 25/Dec/16
Hey guys, she is shorter than 173 because she is slightly shorter than footballer Dani Alves in sneakers
Justine said on 25/Dec/16
At Katy Perry's bachelorette party, Katy Perry and Rihanna walked barefoot poolside together and were identical- have seen a pic of this. Either both 5'8 or both 5'7.

5'8" Eminem seems to have a slight edge on her but of course we can't see footwear. She might be more of a strong 5'7" or him more of a strong 5'8"/5'9".

HeightObsession said on 12/Jan/16
Was in Madame Tussauds in London. Stood next to her matching her heel height which was about 4+ heels tall, and I am almost certain she is one inch taller than me. I know for a fact through many measurements that I stand at 169cm. She is likely 5'7.5 or marginally taller. And she is likely taller than beyonce and may be similar in height to jennifer lawrence.
Mouse22 said on 10/Jan/16
Rihanna is in tons of pictures with Katy Perry, and whatever shoes they wear she's always just about an inch taller. 5'8" I think is just her height, I always thought that. @Anthem ...I don't think wax figures have much to do with people's actual precise heights.
Anthem said on 26/Dec/15
Rihanna's wax figure at Madame Tussauds looked really tall, but she (her figure) was wearing heels.
Height Observer said on 25/Dec/15
@ Liar sorry I liar I found your comment ridiculous lol, how come Hillary Rhoda is 5"9 !? did you believe that? so how will you explain it to me when Hilary Rhoda is taller than Erin Heatherton ? much taller even erin wear a taller heels? and Hilary Rhoda overpowers her like 1inch and a half. If rob listed erin as 5"10.5 so it makes Hilary 5"11.5 , and plus she's also taller than kate bock which kate bock also taller than erin and I believe kate bock is 5"11.5 but I don't have a clue how could Hillary taller than kate

Well, Rihanna's gonna be performing at the VSFS again, so more candid pics with the models! Guess we'll be able to judge her height with them.
Also Rob, I've noticed that a lot of comments from 2005-2007 are coming back! Just wondering, has their been any user from the start of the site or since 2005-2007 still log on or comment from time to time if you can do or see that?

there is a handful of visitors from that era who still post, but like anything, people have an interest in a subject and in a lot of cases move on or become infrequent visitors.

I love how Jay states 5'8 is not short for a woman, it's 3.5" above average so no **** it isn't short. That's like saying a 6'1.5" man is 'not short' - captain obvious to the rescue. Rihanna is a tall lady, fact.

I'd say 5'3.5" for J.Lo , 5'5" for Bey and 5'7" for Rihanna.
Jared said on 15/Nov/14
she's not 5'8.
You need to look no further than shoeless pictures of her and Chris Brown.
Chris Brown is 5'11 and she looks exactly 4 inches shorter than him
Ashley said on 8/Nov/14
Rob when Rihanna did SNL with Anne Hatheway she looked shorter and Anne claims 5'7. What do you think of that? Even if you bump Anne's height to 5'8 Rihanna is still shorter.
Editor Rob
would it maybe have been a case of Anne in big heels and Rihanna in a lower type of boot. That's only thing I can think of as I'd be surprised if Rihanna really was shorter than anne
andre said on 5/Oct/14
She is about 5ft7.5 or 5ft8 and chris brown is 5ft11.5

@evil Rihanna is 2" taller than beyonce. In those pictures shows that beyonce wearing at least 1.5" taller heels. Altough beyonce is standing as straight as she could and rihanna is not. They llok at the same height.
Rihanna wears 120mm (4.5") heels
evil said on 23/Sep/14
i think that rihanna is a solid 5'8, but i think that beyonce is not 5'6 if rihanna is that tall, i think beyonce is at least 5'7, maybe a weak 5'7.5

If she claims 5.8ft let her go on flat totally with willow smith by then we know how tall she is and for willow smith she is 5.0ft

I would say she lying more about her weight than her height
ROJINA said on 3/Sep/14
She CANT be 5"8............someone at that height who weighs as that much would be MUCH more trimmer! I d say she is 5"6-MAXIMUM.

She herself claimed 5'8. She's shorter than 5'9 Doutzen Kroes in The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2012. This height seems right for her.
DOG said on 30/Nov/13
@silent D. i think you have some interest in Rihanna's height. i just wondering if Rihanna, Candice, Miranda Kerr, standing side by side without heels. Candice and Miranda are claiming that they are 175cm. but why does Rihanna look much taller than Candice in Victoria's Secret 2012.
Kristin said on 10/Nov/13

Strange said on 2/Oct/13
you dont think that Rihanna is 5 feet 8 inches at night ,though ?

i mean, she sure does not claim night height herself, cause no one does. Since most people only know morning height or height after being 4 hours awake or so
Conti said on 18/Sep/13
Chris Brown is around 5'11.5,so that makes her 5'7.5

liars said on 16/Jul/13
She looks the same height as friend Cara Delevigne on holiday today, who is listed as 5'7" but may be a tad shorter. Rihanna may wants to appear taller than she is because whenever she wears "flat" shoes, they're always of the type that have a secret 3-4cm heel.
teej said on 11/Jul/13
In her pics with beyonce, beyonce looks taller for some reason and they both wear heels? Beyonce is listed as 5'6, so rihanna must be shorter, or something, i honestly do believe she looks tall for a girl, but why is beyonce taller than her?
Sam said on 7/Jul/13
I agree with G man 619 - people on here like to say that the men are always lying and are shorter than they really are. But the sexy, long legged women get a pass with people raising the height. Rhianna claimed 5'8, never said 5'9. I know that some actress' will boost their height (Jennifer Lawrence), but others like Rhianna probably don't care to be listed as an inch taller.
superog said on 6/Jul/13
look at rihannas official,up-to-date website Click Here it's 5'9"
G man 619 said on 2/Jul/13
It's funny how posters like to deflate the heights of those celebs who they really despise and envy such as 'Justin Beiber' and 'Tom Cruise' but when it comes to hot chicks like Rihanna they like to inflate the height. Must be some kind of fantasy thing.

Rihanna NEVER 5ft 10 but definetley 5ft 8 probably with 1 inch shoes on.Great pop singer ,great songs i am a big fan.
liars said on 5/Jun/13
In the Victoria's secret show, she looked much shorter than Doutzen Kroes, who's real height according to a photographer I know is 5'7.5" - 5'8"
Lee said on 4/Jun/13
she is 5ft 8in certainly looked about that tall in the where have you been video next to all those men. anyway she said so herself, she might have been young but woman stop growing around 16-17 she does wear platforms a lot and can look 6ft 2 in them but barefoot i'd say 5'8" like Ciara
Nick said on 1/Jun/13
5'8 according to this (next to Ashton Kutcher): Click Here
PMP said on 3/May/13
5.5" platform won't makes you 5.5" taller it only give you 2,75"-3" taller taller. Stevan Raab is 6' then Rihanna is 6'-3" = 5'9"

@janelle is that 35 inch inseam to the floor or to the ankle?
janelle said on 31/Mar/13
i'm 5'8.5 and my legs are 35 inches inseam which are longer than hers. people think i'm 5'10-6' because i look like a giant from faraway/in pics, but i was measured by my docor and my friend, and they both said 174cm. this proves that just because her legs look super long and she looks tall from afar doesn't mean she's tall. I'll give her 5'8".

@Cliff that picture with MJ doesn't show what shoes they were wearing and she was probably wearing heels, and I am pretty sure Michael was about 178cm anyway so. Rihanna is easily 6 foot in heels, she is probably around 5'9 or more barefoot. With 6 foot (maybe 6'1) Chris Brown at the Grammys she wasn't much shorter
rendygarp said on 3/Mar/13
More like 5'10"

I remember chris brown was listed as 6 foot 2. He said it himself in an interview. He said he was too tall to dance. He was 19 when he said that. 5 foot 8 for rihanna.
liars said on 3/Feb/13
I used to follow the modelling scene, as I used to be a fan of some of them. I don't know all of the women in this show, but know that it's an open secret that Doutzen, Adriana and Alessandra are signifcantly shorter than the average model. They are considered to be in the 5'7 - 5'8 range. Hilary Rhoda is listed as 5'11, but is actually 5'9 as she once write then deleted, several years ago. She said "I'm 5'9, 5'11 with heels" Her being 5'9 is consistant with some of the paparazzi pictures of her with her 5'10 ex-boyfriend. So, if anyone want to look through the pictures again, you've got a definite 5'9 benchmark for one of the girls.
I'd like to add that I've notice when Rihanna wears "flat" shoe's, they are often of the type that look flat but actually increse your height by 2-4cm...never seen her in properly flat shoes. Think she might be an height exaggerator myself, I'd put her at 5'7 and will be looking at Victorias Secret picks when I can be @rsed.
Jan said on 20/Dec/12
Doutzen is only 5'9. She has stated this herself in interviews. You have to pay attention to the footwear. Doutzen has on heels with a 2 inch platform in front with a much higher heel. Rihanna has a smaller heel on. I would say Rihanna is 5'8.5. Candice is 5'8 just like Alessandra. Miranda is only 5'7.5 max.
Me said on 9/Dec/12
I saw her with Candice Swanpowel. Rihanna look a bit taller than her.
Candice Swanpowel is 5'9" based on VS official website.
Ally said on 6/Dec/12
So, if anyone watched the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, it should be pretty obvious that she's closer to 174+ Unless all those models are 5'6 or 5'7 and exaggerating their height.
Jack said on 6/Dec/12
maybe 174 cm is closer?
JB said on 5/Dec/12
chris brown is 6 foot and rihanna really isnt that much shorter than him she looks 3 about 4 inches shorter than him, ri is definitely 5'8+ barefoot

if you don't look closer they do have the same height. but if you look it closer rihanna looks little tiny shorter

they have same height 5'8" or 5'9". i'm really sure.

Rob, I need your opinion

i have an interest in this Picture

i have already check Christian Louboutin Site. their shoes have the i2 heels height (120mm) every Christian Loboutin Shoes above 120mm have extra platform.

this picture shows rihanna have lo lever aye.

i think from this pitcure they have do have the same height.
What do you think Rob?

i don't know if they are 5'8" or 5'9". but they have same height. (i think)
ME said on 17/Nov/12
Doutzen = 5'10" + 6"heels = 6'2"
Rihanna = 5'8" + 4"heels = 5'10"
6'2" - 5'10" = 4"
but the gap which shown is 3" max
5'8" -5'9" for rihanna
Adriana said on 14/Nov/12
Doutzen is listed @ 5'10, and not 5'9. I think Rihanna is between 5'7 and 5'8.

in ME's picture she's walking side bt side with 5'10 with 6" heels Doutzen Kroeswhile rinna only wearing 4".
the gap that shown is 2-3"
so 5'8" still the minimum height calculation.

If she wearing same heels size. She might be look closer to the other model height.

Compare to Brooklyn Decker who is 5'9", Rihanna's hand level, knees level, hips level totally the same with Brooklyn Decker. just only the neck, chin, ayes level are different which is Rihanna's is lover than Brooklyn Decker. but rihanna has longer head, so it makes They have same height.

Brooklyn Decker is a model, She must be at least 5'9"

5'9" for rihanna
