How tall would rihanna be in these heels
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.

She's 5'7 it's obvious. same height as Katy Perry

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.

Rabbit kicking time! 🥕🐇
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.... 💐🌸

🎂🎁 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! 😁👍📏 🍀 🎂🎁😀
Mimi said on 20/Feb/19
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.
Nik said on 14/Nov/18
@ 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"!
Sandy Cowell said on 12/Nov/18

Ri-Ri can have a tall 5ft8, to be sure!

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" ?

She’s very much in the 172-173 cm range
said on 12/Dec/17Click Here
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

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
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.

Ian said on 23/Feb/17
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.

I don't think Eminem is taller than her, since he is standing miles in front of the camera in that picture
But yes, I can't see Rihanna as tall as 5'8'', I could be wrong but I think she's shorter
said on 14/Jan/17
Very agree with @DefinitelyNotCC Rihanna is not taller than 171.5 cm. And she is also shorter than 5'8 Eminem
I think she is asking for a downgrade
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

Rihanna is 174-175cm
What's your opinion Rob?
Editor Rob: I do think rihanna's own claim of 5ft 8 is generally what she can look, Gigi at times does look just 5ft 9, but other times I think does look 9.5

Her and Katy perry were wearing the same shoes and Katy perry looked a little taller

She always looks 3, 4 cm taller than Katy Perry. IMO Katy is 169 cm and Riri is in 172-174 range. Probably 173cm.

She is as tall as Katy Perry
said on 7/Feb/16
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?
[Editor Rob: 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.

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

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]

@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

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.

@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

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

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?
PMP said on 10/Jul/13
i need to give some correction in my argument
50mm heel = (+35mm)
85mm heel = (+52.5mm)
100mm heel = (+60mm)
120mm heel = (+70mm)
^^^ without platform
120mm heel include 20mm platform (Christian Louboutin Bianca 120mm)
>>120mmH+P - 30mmPLATFORM = 90mm heel = (+55mm) +30mmPLATFORM = (+85mm)
140mm heel include 30mm Platform (Christian Louboutin Bianca 140mm)
>>140mmH+P - 30mmPLATFORM = 110mm heel = (+65mm) +30mmPLATFORM = (+95mm)
160mm heel include 40mm Platform (Christian Louboutin Daffodile 160mm)
>>160mmH+P - 40mmPLATFORM = 120mm heel = (+70mm) +40mmPLATFORM = (+110mm)
How thal is he? 5'11"(180cm)right?
1800mm + 20mm men's shoes = 1820mm
and rihanna is wearing 140mm with 30mm platform so her height will increase 95mm
if rihanna 5'8" >> (1730mm + 95mm = 1825mm)
rihanna looks 20mm-30mm taller than that guy, you can see it at (00:50-00:52 from your video)
1820mm +20mm or 30mm = 1840mm or 1850mm
1840mm or 1850mm - 95mm = 1745mm or 1755mm
Rihanna must a little bit more than 5'8".
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.

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.

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"

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
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"
gruethy said on 1/May/13
She is 1.78 cm (5'10") i am sure

@emily to the ankle
Emily said on 1/Apr/13
@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".

PMP that is exactly the same picture I posted they are both wearing heels and Jennifer heels are not higher but she is clearly an inch taller. That makes it 5'8 for Rihanna.

I saw her at supermarket i swear she's at least 5'10-5'11 without boots
KN6'4 said on 4/Mar/13
@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"
Lemmeluvya said on 2/Mar/13
she's looking at least 5'9.5" next to other celebraties

In my opinion 5'10" without heels . She is looking like really tall for bruno mars at grammys.
@BMS said on 21/Feb/13
Rihanna with 4" heels clearly 1" shorter than 6'0" chris brown.
5'11" - 4"heels = 5'9"

Rihanna is 5'8" - 5'9" for sure
Silent d said on 4/Feb/13
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
said on 25/Nov/12
in this picture
Rihanna Wearing 10cm ancle strap manolo blahnik and brooklyn decker wearing 12cm Christian loboutin.
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.
said on 24/Nov/12
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.
Bo said on 13/Nov/12
we can not use "USUALLY" reason. we need the fact and picture to prove the fact.

Joe said on 12/Nov/12
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.
little sue said on 11/Nov/12
Rihanna could be in flats and hathaway in those 6 inch skyscrapers!!
said on 11/Nov/12Click Here
The model waring 6" heels while Rihanna wearing 4"
My question is, why did she wearing smaller heels in that show. 5'8" is close to another victoria's secret model height.
If she wearing same heels size. She might be look closer to the other model height.
Joe said on 11/Nov/12
that is not sowing their shoes
rani said on 10/Nov/12
with a 5'7 anne hathaway, rihanna is still short

With 5'7 Anne Hathaway
said on 8/Nov/12
She was constantly towered in the Victoria's Secret show by 5'9"/10" models in similar heels.
with 5'9" listed Doutzen Kroes
Considering she's barely taller than 5'5.75" Katy Perry, I give Rihanna a weak 5'7".

@Silent D. that pic show that their knees is on the same level. and thir feet angle is simiar. both of them wearing 4" christian loboutin.
Silent d said on 28/Oct/12
Me rihanna has higher heels. Maybe by 2cm. 5 foot 8.
beouleu said on 27/Oct/12
agree with @Me. if Rihanna is trully 5'8", brooklyn decker must be 5'8". but if Brooklyn Decker is trully 5'9" rihanna must be 5'9" too.
They have similiar height.
said on 26/Oct/12
@ Sinead finn. rihanna has longer head which is makes her look shorter by her ayes level. Rihanna is 5'9"
both have same heels size, same legs length, same hips and shoulders level, exept the ayes which is makes rihanna looks shorter. but they have same height.
(5'8"-5'9") for both of them.
said on 21/Oct/12
In this pic, by the side of Victoria's Secret model Brooklyn Decker (who is trully 175 cm / 5'9'') Rihanna really looks like being 173 (5'8'').
michael said on 28/Sep/12
yes i agree with silent d!
Silent d said on 18/Sep/12
Is she taller than kesha? If kesha is 5 foot 9 than rihanna is close. 5 foot 8. I'm pretty sure brooklyn is a smidgen taller. 5 foot 9 seems a little tall for her.
said on 14/Sep/12
@lazar Katy look 4" sorter than rihanna. rihanna wearing 4" heels. if rhanna takes her heels of too riri still look 2" taller than katy.
5'7" for katy and 5'8"-5'9" for rihanna
said on 11/Sep/12
Erm, hate to burst your bubble but here is the video of the vma 2012, and at the end of the video you can see Katty Peryy (170/5'7) without her heels walking side by side with Rihanna (My guess 173/5'8 at most) who is wearing her heels.
Louise said on 19/Aug/12
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

She has long legs. 5ft8 seems legit for her. Not any higher though.
theblacklab said on 11/Jun/12
5'9" now I think, she's a skinny girl and despite her height, she wouldn't weigh 137lbs at 5'8", she's a celeb after all. I agree with Ally that if the claim was made age 17, she would have grown, but her claim would've been when she was 17. She was probably about 5'6.25 when she was 15, 5'7.25 at 16, 5'8" at 17, 5'8.5" at 18 and 5'9" by 19.

Yeah Ally, Ur right...
Most definitely 5'9 minimum!
Ally said on 12/Feb/12
She's clearly 174 to 175 cms. She said she was 5'8 when she was 17 years old. At that age, people don't get measured very often. She was probably relying on measurements from a year or two ago. Definitely taller than 173cms now.

I have a friend who met her. My friend is 5'9.5" she said Rhianna was taller than her by A LOT! she said she has to be 3-4 inches taller. Rhianna is probably closer to 5'11 bordering 6' she is a TALL woman.
j.Lee said on 2/May/09
but linda if you wear heels you are taller than him.
Linda said on 1/May/09
She looks every bit of 5' 10" to me. Girls today are much taller than 20 years ago. There is a 16 year old at my church who is already 6' 4" and she is beautiful. I am 5' 11" myself and my husband is 6' ". We make a very striking couple. Tall ladies should be proud of their height. It's a beauty feature.
lynn said on 24/Apr/09
My friend has a pic when she met rhianna backstage , and I was shock to find that my friend was taller than her by over an inch since my friend is the same height as me 5'5 and half, dont believe what u see on tv
Suzy said on 23/Apr/09
First of all she said she is 5'9 which makes sense when you see her and chris and she has heels on they are the same height..he is 6'0 or 6'1 he said so. And in the video of her and T.I he had to stand on wood to bee as tall as he they showed it i the making of the video on much music.

Hey guys I work at an airline, and last year had the opportunity to escort Rihanna to her plane, and she was no taller than 5'7 MAX, her heels were about three inches tall, and she was about 5'9.5 with them, so barefoot, I'd say 5'7, 5'6.5
said on 25/Jan/09
look at this, riri and chris are both barefoot, and chris looks no more than 3 inches taller than her. So I definately by 5'8 for her and 5'11'' for chris. And rihanna;s brother is TALL!!Click Here
J.J. said on 22/Jan/09
because of the way models perpetuate heights when they say sum1 is 5'10" u expect 2 see a tree or sumfin but in reality u are not suppose to be as tall as a tree. but to be very clear women hardly ever get to 5'10" and even men hardly get to 5'10"
ice said on 22/Jan/09
Where did you come up with this 5'6 listing for T.I. He claims 5'9, which I seriously doubt, but I know I've never seen a 5'6 listing. Is this just your estimate, or do you have source to show this number?

I know we cant see these girl's footwear, but this is very interesting.
I was starting to doubt Riri's height like a lot of people on this board, but after looking at this photo of these two girls, as well as other photos of Rihanna, i guess she is the height she claims.Click Here
Oh, and Jazo, your claim is completely ridiculous!!
Andrew said on 19/Jan/09
to Nikki:And she was wearin what?FLATS????
nikki said on 18/Jan/09
to Andrew: i saw the making for that video on tv and they showed how they had to put T.I. on a box to make him taller next to Rihanna...i would definitely say she's taller than 5'7", easily
Anonymous said on 18/Jan/09
I don't even think 5'10 is really tall, dont worry about it, I see lots of girls that height, I'd say starting at 6' is really tall for a women. and trust me 5'9 doesn't even look really tall at all these days.

im about 5'9 or 5'10 and im only 13 I seem to get really fascinated about how tall celebs are because I get so sick of getting made fun at school because how tall I am I mean really everyone acts like its a big deal with being tall honestly I think its a blesing to be tall so do your than Rihanna
J.J. said on 14/Jan/09
5'8" for a woman is normal tall, but you know u r really tall when you get to 5'9"-5'10". as for 5'11" you are a very tall woman
Jazo said on 12/Jan/09
I saw her in real life outside of MuchMusic and the first thing I thought was "my god, she is tiny", like most celebs. She was in kicks and was probably 5'4 max. She is usually in 4 inch heels so everyone thinks she's tall. She's not.
5 ft 3.2 said on 11/Jan/09
Rihanna is really tall. 5 ft 7-8 sounds about right for her.
wow said on 11/Jan/09
OMG,pic of her and Kanye,recently posted here..shows clearly that she is 5'6.Also pics from rehab with Justine and pics of her heels(with platform..crazy ones!)...still shorter than him.
Big T said on 9/Jan/09
Good pic Rob. There is a music video of that song they performed where they are all standing next to each other in a straight line. Rihanna is clearly the tallest, and there are several 5'6" to 5'8" range girls there like Mariah, Beyonc and Ciara.
That pic actually doesn't fully highlight how tall Rihanna looks in the video because she is so far from the camera. But it does highlight how Ciara is also wearing massive heels, yet still looks plenty shorter than Rihanna in the video.
said on 8/Jan/09
I never said you can't get more than 3 inches out of heels. Some of those pictured with the thick platform, I can certainly see her getting between 4 and 5 inches.
However (a) the talk of 7 or 8 inch gains is ridiculous
(b) I still don't see more than 3 inches excluding the platform, simply because I have measured someone wearing heels equally steep as all of those pictured, and I know for a fact she gains 3 inches of height.
Rihanna is a solid 5'8" and I'm happy to see Rob not responding to the downright ridiculous comments on this page and keeping her height at 5'8"
[Editor Rob: a lot of the 'top' singers done that show together, here was one shot here
there are some big heels amongst those girls, ones that do give 3.5-4 inches.]
