To be fair, she's looking 184 in the photo above with 11-12 cm of shoe, she's 172 min, and 173 max.

I'd be so surprised if she really has 5'8"

She's def 5 ft 7 inches maybe even 5 ft 6.5 inches...i am 5 ft 10.5 inches and weigh 160 pounds and her legs are thicker than mines for 133 pounds
Florian said on 17/Jun/17
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.
Demiigod said on 28/May/17

she's taller than 5'6 eminem 5'8 seems about right for her
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.
ok said on 19/Feb/17

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
Johnson 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

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.

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.

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
Janet said on 12/Nov/15
Yep this seems about right
Allie said on 18/Oct/15
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.

I'd say 5'3.5" for J.Lo , 5'5" for Bey and 5'7" for Rihanna.

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]

@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

[Editor Rob: possibly she didn't stand as well as him?]
Just said on 30/Dec/13
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

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

Chris Brown is around 5'11.5,so that makes her 5'7.5

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.
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.

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 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

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.
Bo said on 13/Nov/12

its usually rhianna who is in skyscrapers and hathaway in flats.
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.

Rihanna could be in flats and hathaway in those 6 inch skyscrapers!!

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

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.

@ 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.

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"

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.

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'm just about at tall as rihanna and i use to be self conscious about it but now that i see her in heelz and everything i got more doesn't matter how tall she is..she look awesome either way whether she's 5'8 or shorter or taller than that
UMMMM said on 6/Oct/07
Maybe you should upgrade her height to 5'8 1/2, I think that makes a little more sense, because she can look as tall as 5'9 but sometimes look 5'8 but a little bit taller.
frank69 said on 2/Oct/07
Here's a video of rihanna and ciara,you can see rihanna is taller by an inch.Here's the link to the video Click Here
sara said on 25/Sep/07
Guys, Beyonce looks very leggy and tall and she's only 5'6. It is very possible that Rihanna is shorter than she claims. I still haven't forgotten the performance with 6' Chris Brown where she is still at least 3 inches shorter in 6 inch heels. And even if the heels don't add 6 inches, they had to have added at least 4 which should have made her 6'0 as well.
Roe said on 24/Sep/07
If you haven't heard..Rihanna broke her toe and has been wearing a cast on one foot and a high heel shoe on the other foot for about the past 2-3 months. You can see the cast in one of the Mischa Barton photos, and the same thing at the 2007 VMA's..that's why she has been looking shorter as of recent. I think she is 5-9. The link below is her on Ellen's show..she has on regular the very end of the video she is side by side with Ellen..and is 3-4 inches taller than her.

I'm sorry guys, the video is not available anymore, maybe you will find it on youtube if you type "rihanna mtv vma" or something like that, but it's worth watching to speculate on her height.
mon said on 18/Sep/07
I dunno mary j blige looks taller than 5'5 to me. I think rihanna is around 5'8 truly and MJG is probably taller than she claims. Some people claim to be shorter just as much as some claim to be taller.

Dammit, since the video is no longer available I'm gonna post another video about the same moment, do check it out:

ras said on 13/Sep/07
Just to prove my point, did she take off her heels when she took the award? Mary J. Blige (5 ft 5.5) looks considerably much taller than her in this vid!
Pay close attention from 0:30 to 0:45, maybe the people saying 5 ft7 or less aren't off really...

Click Here
ras said on 13/Sep/07
Again, you guys need to check out the VMA's when she received te award for best video of the year. Dr. Dre is 6 ft 1 supposedly, she was wearing heels and he still quite tall next to her, I man he looked 6 ft 2. I think she took off her heels which would explain why he looked 6 ft 2 but still...
denn said on 12/Sep/07
she looks so much,MUCH taller than hayden panettiere at the kid choice awards. Mind you, hayden is a midget.Im 5ft9 and feel really tall when i wear heels.
In some pictures shes wearing big heels but then doesnt look particularly tall in others.
Surely in the heels she was wearing at the VMAS would maker her about 5'11/6'.
sara said on 11/Sep/07
6 inch heels do what they're meant to do. My heels certainly add the height they're intended to. That's the first time I've heard anyone say that they don't. But, Rihanna may very well be 5'8, but I would still believe that she was shorter. But 5'6 would be the least since she is definitely leggy.

[Editor Rob: some manufacturers measure heel height through the stem, others from the very back, there's no uniformity though. Through the stem is closer to actual height of course.]
mon said on 11/Sep/07
I dunno, she was on the tyra show yesterday and looked about the same height as tyra, maybe an inch shorter. I think shes 5'9. And 6 inch heels dont really add 6 inches of height, just to let u know!
sara said on 10/Sep/07
I saw a picture of her next to Chris Brown who is about 6'0 after their VMA 2007 perfomance together. She was three inches shorter in 6 inch heels. She is not 5'8. She is 5'6 at the least. She was the same height as 5'5 Nicole Scherzinger when she received her "single of the year award." You guys would be surprised what heels can do.
ras said on 10/Sep/07
Well, in the vma's of 2007 when she received the "best video of the year award" she looked quite short next to dr. dre and she was in heels. Yoguys gotta check it out.

people that are taller usually pivot their foot to look shorter in photos. I dont believe pics cause they alter it to whoever a bigger celeb. have you seen the one with her and beyonce, beyonce looks like she's 5'10 and rihanna looks like a midget, just so she can get all the attention. I think 5'9 is right, Ive seen her in concert and she looks tall.
misch said on 15/Aug/07
i think rihanna is around 5'7. yes she has long legs but shes always wearing huge heels. When you look at photos where mischa barton and rihanna stand next to each other and have almost same heels on you'll see theres a big gap between them like 5-8 cm ....

not tall not short said on 11/Aug/07
Well, Ras, unless you are a human osteologist, you can't really say. Fortunately I have studied bones for years and physiologically people continue to grown until their early 20's, the last bone to fuse being the clavicle. Yoga doesn't stretch your bones out, and won't make you taller. Height is genetics; exercise only determines the density of bone, and one who is sedentary (and she is not at all) will still grow taller, but will be weaker, will slouch over etc.
ras said on 1/Aug/07
"still has some 2-4 years to grow taller."
Some could argue she wouldn't grow really, with more reason being a girl. Though I bet if she got into some kinda routine like yoga she could grow over 5'9.
not tall not short said on 29/Jul/07
Perspective: She has amazingly long legs and an incredibly beautiful form. I think anyone would be abundantly pleased to look like her, and be her height whether she's 5'7" or 5'9" - she ain't short. She is a mere 19 yrs, still has some 2-4 years to grow taller. But anyway, let's face it - she has it all plus or minus an inch!
Tall Boy said on 29/Jul/07
What's the big deal about an inch? So many people are arguing she's 5'8" and can't be 5'9". An inch is nothing, how can you tell from a picture or a tv show about an inch. I'm 6'2" and I see people in the mall that I think are taller than me, when they walk past me they're way shorter than they appeared from a distance. Unless your face to face with someone it's hard to judge their height.
Me Me said on 25/Jul/07
Everyone agrees she looks more 5'9", so change it to 5'9". One of my girlfriends was that height, so I know what 5'9" looks like. In my opinion it's the tallest a girl can be to not hinder her beauty... If it was down to height, I'd choose caucasian girls between 5'4" and 5'9"... asians can be a lot shorter and still attractive. Of course, in real life, I'd never judge because of height, it's a minor, unimportant detail.
For Real said on 21/Jul/07
She's 5'9 most def..and thats without the heels..she's not skinny with her height so she carries it well..and im 5'8 1/2..I round it up to 9...When you're on a video its hard to tell your height and in pictures me I know..sometimes I look as tho im shorter...
J said on 29/Jun/07

This girl is what she says she is. OR She is 5'8 1/2, rounded up like most people do, and said 5'9. So, she is about 5'9 1/2 in this picture...

i think rihanna's 5'8'' definitely not 5'9'' looks like 5'9'' b/c she's skinny! compare between skinny people and big-sized people, for skinny people, it makes them more taller than big-sz ppl even though they have same heights

Hi. IFew minutes ago I watched one show, which was about WMA. There was talking russian singer Dima Bilan (the best selling artist in Russia) and he said that Rihana is really tall. And he said that she is taller them he is. And Dima's Bilan height is 1,83. So that she could be about 1,80...I think it could be true...

You guys are wasting your time on figuring out someone's height rather than using your brains and putting them into good use. Who cares how tall anyone is? the only reason you yap for pages about this shit is becauase you are low on your own self confidence/ esteem and feel pleasure in putting other people down. i'm 5'10 and VERY known actress,,,trust me, that'the reason why we don't like you fans...bunch of gossipers with too much time on your hands,,,

and also i saw a picture of her and nikki hilton(5.7/170 cm).They were exactly the same height and of course they were both wearing heels.So ,like i said she is max 5.7.
tk said on 28/Oct/06
she wear heels just about 99% of the time so its hard to tell, look at her on Punk'd, I was shocked by how friggin high her heels were! I think she's 5ft 8 MAX, but I really think she's about 5ft 6. See her next to Ludacris, who's about 5ft 8, she's wearing heels and is the same height as her.
lorena said on 23/Oct/06
i don't think she's 173.Max 170.I saw her in punk'd.she was wearing very tall platform shoes (>15 cm) and she was smaller than ashton with 8-10 cm.And he's 1.90?something like this.everybody lies about their heights(in special public persons)

There was an interview on german VIVA in which she actually said that she is now 176 cm tall (don't know in inches). I think that could be quite right.But still would give her around 174...

i swear, i was watching viva (german music tv) and a german singer said that rihanna is 183 cm tall, he said that he's shorter than her, because he's like 181cm. and she wasn't even wearing heels (but i find that hard to believe)!

Hmm, I think she is infact 174 from recent photos I have seen of her.
JAY said on 20/Jul/06
I saw her in person and she had on heals and looked pretty tall. She was interviewing next to Ciara on the red carpet of LA Reids party and I was in front of them and they were the same height. Ciara stated herself without shoes she is 5'8 1/2 so Rihanna is about a half inch shorter.She is also gorgeous in person 5'8 for a woman is pretty tall. Beyonce is 5'6 and that same day she looked to be 5'11 cause of heels so I guess those things help
