Cara Delevingne's Height
5ft 7 ¼ (170.8 cm)
English Fashion Model and actress from Paper Towns and Suicide Squad (2016). She was listed at a ludicrous 5ft 9.5 by a fashion agency, but even she is probably embarrassed by that fib since in an 'Into The Gloss' blog article Cara directly mentioned her own height: "I'm tiny for runway! I'm 5'8" or 5'7""
. Her vital stats were also given as Bra/Bust size 31A, Waist site 24 inches, Hips 34 inches, Shoe Size 6UK (7.5-8US), Dress Size 2US (6UK)

she is shorter than Rihanna in the pics
5'7 1/4 tops
MAD SAM said on 14/Jun/18
Guys she’s exactly the same height as Rihanna and Rihanna is listed at 172-173 cm, if that’s the case Cara is surely 171 at least

rob here she claim 5`8 . i think 170 flat is very possible for this girl
ChrisT said on 16/Apr/18
At the Starfury Convention, Cara's wearing very high and thick (platform-like) heels. Her hair is also fluffed up which adds to the height illusion. I've also noticed that she tends to pose in front of others in photos (quite of few folks do that when they want to look taller) in order to give her a height advantage. Cara's no more than 5ft5 barefoot. Many of these wee lassies appear to "measure" their heights when in heels rather than barefoot but that's not how it works. They also avoid posing next to the genuinely tall women and opt for posing next to the really short ones. This "technique" has become all too predictable. Narcissism galore..

Billed as 5'10 when working! Joker! Ha. 5'7 minimum, though.
Laughing Jam said on 16/Feb/18
She's about a 166cm - 169cm. I'd say a 5'6" to be exact.
Cacau said on 23/Jan/18
Sounds real. Daniel Brühl looks 5 cm taller than her.

She can look more like a weak 5'7 not a strong one imo.
Peter175 said on 25/Dec/17
Unnecessary upgrade imo. Bieber has her by a clear half inch, maybe more
Psychedelic Earth 187 said on 25/Dec/17
I don’t know about this upgrade, but in you we trust.
said on 21/Dec/17
Hey Rob. Here's her footwear from that event with the Starfury Convention organiser. Click Here
Do you think there is a chance she's actually closer to the 5'8" mark like she claims?
Editor Rob: certainly couldn't rule out 5ft 7.5 for her...Sean is no shorter than me, so that's how I'd expect I'd look with her!
Maybe when she said 5ft 8 or 7, she did in fact measure somewhere in between - every model gets measured at some point.
said on 19/Dec/17
I saw the organiser of Starfury Conventions got a photo with Cara and she has like 3 inches on him...bear in mind this guy is no shorter than me and actually I'd put him a fraction over 5ft 8 (he claimed 5ft 10 on imdb):
Allie said on 16/Dec/17
Cara's from a upper class British family witth connections to the royal family! She could have been a model regardless of her height.
Sometimes if a model has that look they take them even if their short referrIng to unconnected models.
ice said on 12/Dec/17
It probably matters a lot for a model whether you are 5'7 or 5'8. The later is acceptable (prob the lower limit), the former is only possible with the right connections.
Mistical said on 10/Dec/17
She is same height like K.Moss just 1.65m.
Allie said on 3/Dec/17
She generally looks like 5'6-7.
Realtalk said on 28/Nov/17
6'5 in dream world
5'6 in reality
Slim 6' said on 30/Oct/17
needs a 169 downgrade tbh.
Junior said on 14/Oct/17
She look short compare to her model colleagues. Most catwalk models height range nowadays was mostly 5'8-5'9 for average and the very ones 5'10-6'0.
Lol said on 28/Sep/17
Cara looking 6 feet with heels :) with her beautiful heart and face, she's truly God's creation.
Sweet potato said on 27/Sep/17
5'7" sounds about right.
Lol said on 17/Sep/17
Cara is 5'6.0 flat because margot is 5'5 1/2.. still is the average female height so she's no less beautiful than anything taller.
emy said on 13/Sep/17
rob i think she's a little taller because whenever she stands next to rihanna they're almost the same height
Anonymous said on 13/Sep/17
rob can you guess cindy kimberly's height?
said on 27/Aug/17
So.... how tall is Cara? with Katy(I have no idea how tall is Katy) and Claudia Schiffer who is over 180-182cm|5.11-5.11"5
Editor Rob: beside claudia I wouldn't have thought she looked under 171cm there.
Junior said on 22/Aug/17
I think she look a wee over 5'7 maybe 5'7.25".
said on 22/Aug/17
What about American VS model Grace Elizabeth, Rob? I'm curious with her height
Editor Rob: not really seen much of her.
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Aug/17
PS I'm sure Cara might find it amusing to read that one of my naughty little fur balls brought up a hairball on the cover of a magazine - with her picture on the front! I washed it, of course, and then left it to dry nicely and it's back to normal now!
Sandy Cowell said on 7/Aug/17
I haven't done a comment on Cara for over 6 months now, and I STILL haven't seen one of her films! I'll have to do something about that post haste!
Anyway, Cara is a great girl and always making me laugh with her pulling of funny faces, so I must see what she is like on screen - all 5ft7 of her!
AJ said on 5/Aug/17
I've seen a lot of photos and movies of her to know that this listing is spot on. Definitely looks 5'7, no more and no less.
said on 5/Aug/17
Hey rob, what about this photo with Kate moss listed as 5 ft 6, (I think is a bit shorter ) in heels and cara with sneakers?? In the pic they look very close in height....also here cara I think isn't over 5 ft 8.25 with shoes that are about 1.25-1.5 inch range I guess, so maybe for cara 5 ft 6.75 barefoot could be is a good shot....
What do you think rob??
Editor Rob: I can't see Cara less than 5ft 7 there, although moss at 5ft 5.5 makes sense a lot of time.
Lol said on 4/Aug/17
@SS don't be like that to my babe
Be supportive if Cara okay?
SS said on 4/Aug/17
You mean high heels?
Lol said on 4/Aug/17
She says 5'8 and I support her! She's definitely 5'8 with shoes on. Love you babe!!!
said on 2/Aug/17
I say 5'6 she is shorter than 5'8 Dana Dehaan by 2 inches. Rob you should watch Valerian city of a thousand planets
Editor Rob: not seen that one, but at events it seems in decent heels she is a bit taller than Dane.
Cathy said on 27/Jul/17
@anon Just look at her standing barefoot near barefoot 5'4 Selena Gomez,same height.Her legs are too short to be 5'8 to 5:10 as she's claimed.She's always preaching to be yourself.
said on 26/Jul/17
She is the same height as Rhiannah. Cara is 5ft 8ins.
SS said on 22/Jul/17
I think to know her real height, Rob has to meet her in person

In this video she says 5'8 @3:46 But she says it with lack of conviction and she didn't say it in centimeters so...It makes it harder to guess...
Slim 182 cm said on 18/Jul/17
I'd say 169 won't be branded impossible, I'm convinced. But a flat 5'6 is too low, to me.
SS said on 16/Jul/17
If you look at the picture where she is with margot robbie who is listed as 5.5.5 , they seem identical in height. Cara is 5.6 to 5.6.5
Slim 181 cm said on 16/Jul/17
Bandwagon much? There's nothing wrong with robs 5'7 listing! If anything she deserves an upgrade to 5'7.25, because that's how tall she looked in suicide squad.
SS said on 7/Jul/17
169cm a 100 votes!

Ally said on 5/Jul/17
Ugh geez she's. Skinny I honestly think she is 5,10
SS said on 13/Jun/17
There is a picture , where she is with margot robbie and they both wore the same clothes.Could that prove it?
said on 11/Jun/17
We almost have hundred votes!When will you demote her to 1.69m?
Editor Rob: if I've seen enough to think 169 is a fair estimate yes, last time I looked at her I wasn't sure she would be that short...
ana said on 10/Jun/17
this is a joke, there is no way she is 1,70, legs and arms look for someone 168 max, she has to be 5.6 and witg pilates and exercises reaching 5. 6,5 that is reality, not dreams
Morningheight 181.5cm said on 4/Jun/17
Perfect height for a female 170cm
said on 1/Jun/17
Rob (or anyone else^^),say her height is 5'6/168cm, how much do you think she weighs in the pictures below?
And how much do you think she weight now?
Editor Rob: she might have went from 110-5 to 120
harland said on 28/May/17
I would've guessed 5'8". But 5'7" looks accurate. Not a bad height at all IMO. She's 2 or 3 inches taller than the average British female. And she's beautiful.
Ana said on 26/May/17
I think tha Cara and Sara Sampaio have the same height, around 1.67
Headbanger said on 15/May/17
She is incredible, 5'6.5 and a supermodel
Allie said on 25/Apr/17
Though not as tall as the average model (5'10ish), she has a unique face I'll give her that.
SS said on 17/Apr/17
Can you downgrade her to 5ft6.5?

Kinda unfair comparison, since Cara is wearing plaform heels and Nadia is in sneakers, but taking that into account, there's still not that much diffirence between them.. Great find!

No way she is in 5'6 range, have you seen her with ninja in the music video ugly boy? Definitely 5'7! unless ninja i smaller than I think!
Angela said on 28/Mar/17
She looks like a weak 5'7. Above average height, but not tall either.
SS said on 22/Mar/17
Look at the picture where shes with her sister and sienna? 5ft 6.5 is the way to go!

Is she taller than Sara sampaio?
andre said on 13/Mar/17
5ft6 barefoot or 5ft5.5 barefoot at night she was almost same height as selena gomes
Sandy Cowell said on 28/Jan/17
I'm really fond of this girl because she seems very funny! About one in five of the pictures I've seen of her show her with her tongue out! There was a Brahma in my magazine today! I could have sworn there was spit on her tongue - ha ha ha! Great unconventional stuff!
Cara has made the transition from modelling to acting and I look forward to seeing her in a film. I did think Cara might be at least 5ft8 as she's a very successful and popular model, but it's refreshing to see she is one of the smaller model-girls AND so much in demand.
I shall happily go along with 5ft7 for this lovely young lady! 🌹👸👗👜👠👠👙💄
February said on 21/Jan/17
Considering Cara said 5'7 herself, I would give her 5'6 - 6'6,5. She honestly looks that too..
N.l said on 10/Jan/17
She looks 167-168cm to me .
Katarina said on 10/Jan/17
She doesn't look that tall. I think she looks around 5'7. But she obviously is not 5'4...
said on 5/Jan/17
Rob, going through some of the old comments, someone linked this (Click Here
) picture with Beyonce. At the time, you said they might measure close and you had Beyonce at 5'6.5". Now that Beyonce has been downgraded to a flat 5'6", do you think there's a chance that Cara dips to Big G range rather than a strong 5'7"?
Editor Rob: I don't know exactly how the photograph is taken, but I think Beyonce's heels could be a bit more...sometimes a camera can favour one side, but one thing is sure, the idea of Beyonce being 5ft 3-4 is a bit mad!

Does anyone know what her inseam is?
Addison said on 15/Dec/16
she looks 5'6 to me, but judging by pics of her next to 1.64-1.65m selena gomez, shes most likely only 1.71 tops or a weak 1.72.
DefinitelyNotCC said on 8/Dec/16
both 5'4 and 5'8 sound ridiculous she's in the 169-170 range, this listing is fine.
Frida said on 8/Dec/16
Cara is 5.7
Anon said on 5/Dec/16
Cathy, saying she's 5'4 is so ridiculous, and I doubt your judgement. She's 5'8 at best, and she's not taller than that. But to say she's 5'4 is insane.
Cathy said on 5/Dec/16
She's 5'4 and has six top model agencies-amazing. She's the same height as Selena Gomez and they were both in bare feet, end of story.
Sammy Derrick said on 4/Dec/16
In the movie Suicide Squad,her character The Enchantress is listed as HEIGHT:5'09 WEIGHT:132LBS EYE COLOR: GREEN HAIR COLOR:Blonde/Black
Okay since she's pretty thin and has such striking facial features she can claim to be 5'7 to 5'9 and get away with it.
Hhgh said on 24/Nov/16
She is 5"8 because she has the same height as Rihanna. Minimum 5"7.5
said on 13/Nov/16
Hey Rob , what's the most you've been wrong over an estimate and who was it ? I'm just curious :)
Editor Rob: there would have been a few error listings through the years, like the feet part forgotten, but I would correct them pretty soon. There is probably a few listings that started on an actor's claim, but had ended up looking 2 inches smaller than their claim.
said on 10/Nov/16
Wait Rob, nevermind, this(Click Here
) photo shows her closer to the 5'8" mark than the 5'10" mark so the current listing still seems pretty accurate. I guess it was just a camera angle thing?
said on 9/Nov/16
Rob, what's going on here? Click Here
She looks just under 5'10"
Her footwear (Click Here
) appears to be some sort of platform creeper type shoe that adds a bit extra than a normal sneaker but even still maybe she is not too far off her 5'8" claim.
Editor Rob: those Puma's won't give much more than an inch...how much she gains in camera advantage is a matter that is harder to tell.
SS said on 4/Nov/16
The picture below proves it , she is lower than 5'7
said on 3/Nov/16
How tall is Cara Delevingne in massive platform heels? About 6 feet?
Editor Rob: absolutely near that height in 5 inch range heels
starbunny said on 2/Nov/16
Agree with everyone here, she is probably 5'6 range
Ari said on 31/Oct/16
She looks closer to 5'6 than 5'7.
said on 31/Oct/16
Next to 5'7" Alfie Allen (who you've met). I know their walking in the photos so it can be hard to tell but I still think she's closer to 5'6" than 5'7".
said on 28/Oct/16
If you watch her in the fashion shows, she always appears to be at least 3-4 inches shorter than all the other models. Watch her at the end of the Victoria Secre Fashion Show 2013 closing walk ---> Click Here
She is also not that much taller than Selena who is probably 5'4.75.
SS said on 18/Oct/16
I agree, somewhere in the 5.6.5 range
Christopher said on 7/Oct/16
a friend of mine who's 5'6 met her at a kanye west concert and told me that she was as tall as her. i guess she's more of a 5'6.25 instead of 5'7, but YOU're the expert
Beth said on 7/Oct/16
How is everyone saying her and Margot Robbie are the same height? There are many pics of them together and they do have a difference. Cara is clearly taller. I do think she's 5'7 and nothing less. I remember seeing her on the runway and she didn't look as short as Sara Sampaio who's 5'6

Well, if you check out Margot Robbie's own thread on this site many claim Margot is 5'4..
James said on 19/Sep/16
Google Cara with Margot Robbie. When both in the same outfits (and shoes) they are the same height. So 5'6 for Cara (1.68).
Adam said on 14/Sep/16
Rob , you think you'll take another look on her? Everyone seems to think somewhere in the 5"6 range is more appropriate .
said on 5/Sep/16
Looking at pictures of Cara and Rita Ora (who is 165cm), Cara seems to be around 165-167cm range.
oliver said on 18/Aug/16
If Harry Styles is 5' 9-9.5, then Cara is 5' 6 at most because she is still slightly shorter than him when she wears heels.
ShortRussianDude said on 30/Jul/16
She was not that much taller than Dave Franco with heels on.
5'6.5 somewhere around there would bet good money she falls under 170cm.
Jackob said on 27/Jul/16
T said on 20/Jul/16
Generally when people say that they are between two heights they are about an inch below the minimum height they give , not taking anything away from her , she's deffinitley the best looking girl I've ever seen . She just doesn't look that height , she's looks to be at an abseloute minimum bed time height 1.68m.
Naughty said on 29/Jun/16
She always looks 5'6" to me. I agree with @TallerthanU, just because she is modeling doesn't mean she isn't fudging her height. It's actually not uncommon at all. Even Kate Moss, who to me is around 5'5"-5'6" is sometimes listed as 5'7" or 5'8".
997 said on 5/Jun/16
I've seen her in real life, she doesn't look like a model & seemed to be 5.6 at most.

downgrate to 5ft6.5 or 5ft6 barefoot thats her height rob
5 feet 10 inch and half said on 27/May/16
she looks like 165cm at first glance, because she has small head and shorter torso. but I'm sure her heights 169 cm between 170cm and I think she is tiny for a model.
TallerthanU said on 1/May/16
@BirchGirl just because she is a model doesn't make her automatically tall. She looks 5'6 or 5'6.5 max
TallerthanU said on 1/May/16
Looks about 5'5, 5'6 to me
BirchGirl said on 22/Feb/16
I can't believe someone actually said she looks 5'5" in the comments. She is a model and doesn't look short. A 5'5" woman is "average" in the U.S., but would still look very short in the modeling world. She is not a tall girl in the fashion world, but hardly looks short. I think 5'7" is right.
Allie said on 1/Feb/16
Because model agencies lie about height if a model doesn't fit the mold? The do the same thing with models over 180 (though sometimes you may see a 181-183 cm model) cm.
charlie said on 29/Jan/16
why is she listed as 5 foot 10 inches/ its obvious she's 5 foot 7 inches. In Heels maybe 5 foot 10 . Her height is 5 foot 7 inches maybe 5 foot 6.5

Tunman said on 25/Sep/15
Always wondered myself why they're lying so much about models height.It's like they want some kind of stereotype for the body of women.The worse is that some nice girls who are only 5'6-7 range could be discouraged by the fake standards imposed.
Unfortunately people tend to idealize the images vehiculed by TV and magazines leading to negative reactions such as a girl I know who is recently turning anorexic arguing she was too fat when she's absolutely average weight.
By selling images agencies act as if they can decide what should be the perfect body which is stupid and they know it very well.After all are directors that blind not to see that Cara is way under the 5'9.5 listing?Probably not.In the end I'm believing that lying is just a second nature in that world.

list of short Runway models: Anja Konstantinova 5.4 / Bambi Northwood-blyth 5.6 / Barbara Palvin 5’7/ Marine Deleeuw 5’8 / Alena Blohm 5’7 (one of my favorites)/ Zippora Seven 5’5 /Georgia May Jagger 5’6 / Chanel Iman 5’8 /Amanda Norgaard 5’6 / Siri Tollerod 5’8 / Ashley Smith 5’7 / Charlotte Free 5’5 / Jacquelyn Jablonski 5.8/ Anais Mali 5’7 / Julia Hafstrom 5’7 / Devon Aoki 5’5/ Sara Sampaio 5’6 / Luma Grothe 5’7 (I have seen her in person and she is pretty short (for model), 5'7 max) / Sasha Pivovarova 5’7/ Loulou Robert 5’5 / Malaika Firth 5’7 / Anna Ewers 5’7 / Hailey Baldwin 5’7 / Suki Waterhouse 5’7 / Shanina Shaik 5’8 / Olympia Campbell 5’7 / Laetitia Casta 5.5 and Cara 5.6-5.7;)
Allie said on 20/Sep/15
She looks 5 inches shorter than Toni Garrn though.. Toni's 5'11.5-5'11.75 which makes Cara a weak 5'7, 5'6.5. Nothing less and the lowest I'd say is 5'6.
Mini said on 26/Aug/15
@ M who was the model? And yeah.. there are very little to no successful fashion models 165 cm, maybe Charlotte Free but she isn't that successful. I'm talking high fashion btw and not some commercial swimwear show.
@Kayliee I've stated that connections have helped her to get where she is, I'm not an idiot. Her sister Poppy was working in the business, she's a socialite, I know. And you're incorrect, agencies will not list a model as 170 in case other girls want to become models, they list them over 5'9" usually because they want all the girls in a show to be more or less the same height so it won't create a distraction on the runway from the clothes which is what they're there to sell. What I'm saying is connections alone will not get you a place on the runway if you're small. Cara is tall for an average girl, short for the average model. No agency is going to risk sending a girl who is small to potential clients because the client won't trust them in the future. Minimum is 5'7". That's it. Not hard to understand.
said on 22/Aug/15
Rob, you should add actress now. She has officially quit modeling and just starred in Paper Towns and is filming Suicide Squad. :).
[Editor Rob: yes, I should mention that now.]
Kayliee said on 21/Aug/15
@Mini you are very upset probably because you like Cara and as for many people it is difficult or not possible to admit or to realize that their favourite celebrity is "not as they imagine". You and some other people don't consider fact that Cara is not some random , ordinary girl who wanted to become model. Her sisters were already working in this buisness, her family is known, so it's not like she comes from nowhere. Of course model agencies will not admit "she is only 1,70m" because all other girls with only 1.70m would want to become models. And even Karl Lagerfeld said about her that she doesn't look like "typical model" but she completes all with her character and charisma. Cara is not tall like other models but she has "this thing" which makes her different form others and makes her career going fast. She is acception like Vanessa Paradis (160cm) Kate Moss (165 cm) Sasha Pivovarova (174cm her height was also always overstated) which were successful models.
M said on 21/Aug/15
@Mini you are lying sho hard, but not because od Cara, there is another raeson why are you lying..There are many models on catwalk from 1.65-1.70m. I met before many years one model, 5'6" who worked in America, and showed me her pictures on Oscar De La Renta shows.
Kina said on 20/Aug/15
She must be between 5'6 and 5'7 as Marc Jacobs once called her "a dwarf" [for the catwalk] and banned her from runway.
Cliff said on 20/Aug/15
I agree with "Mini."
Even in the photos on the yacht with Selena Gomez she looks two inches taller. There are more models than ever now around this height (Sara Sampaio and Natalia Vodianova are other examples). Keep in mind that 170cm is still above the global average height for a female, It's just not very tall for a runway model. Both Cara and Sara are thin and have long legs and longish bodies which make them photograph taller than they actually are. I think Kate Moss opened the doors for models under 172cm.
dat said on 20/Aug/15
yes. she is 170cm.

She's 5'7". That's it. No smaller. She simply would not get signed in the first place and walk in numerous shows if she wasn't somewhat tall. The connections help but she still had to be tall to show off the clothes down a runway. The stupid photo with Selena that people keep bringing up is one in thousands of photos where she looks the same height as Selena and yet looks much taller in other photos. It's called angles and posture. I know for a fact from someone in the industry who worked with her that the girl is "no more than 173 cm" and no less than 170. Trying to downgrade her to 5'6" or 5'5" is idiotic. No agency is going to risk sending a girl shorter than that to a client because the client will send her back and they won't trust the agency anymore. As a model, Cara is a product. Models are tall and thin. 5'7" is somewhat tall. 5'6" is not. Come back to me when you find a fashion model of that height (excluding Kate or Devon or Georgia) who has walked in numerous shows and fronted blue chip campaigns and editorials. I'll be waiting.

Though she seems shorter than most 5ft9 (175.5cm) or more models, seeing her next to Nat Wolff (183-185cm) in Paper Towns (not the pictures, but the movie scenes) I wouldn't say she is 13-15cm shorter than him. I would give her around 173cm, she isn't really tall, but in that movie you can see that her height is not average, more like slightly taller than average.

Cara is only 1" taller then Selan Gomez (1.65m) so she is 5'6" and with 5'6" she can be runway model.Not only very tall women do runways.

@mariam1 agree with you, 5'4" - 5'5" listing is ridiculous for her, she isnt taller then 5.7 but not shorter then 5.6.
M said on 6/Aug/15
@mariam and Why 5'5" should be rediculous for models when there are lot's of models that height (although they are not so welknown)..Not only very tall women can be model.
M said on 6/Aug/15
@mariam you are very very wrong.
mariam1 said on 5/Aug/15
Cara isn't as tall as the other models and sometimes she looks like a dwarf next to them, but 5'4" - 5'5" - 5'6" listing is ridiculous even for her. When she entered in Storm modeling agency she was around 17 and she wasn't less than 5'7" ,but she obviously has grown since her first fashion weeks (which was in 2011-12) I think now she's around 5'7"5 - 5'8 , no more than 5'8" but 5'4"-5'6" downgrades are so funny.

When she started doing fashion weeks she wasn't less than 5'6" , but her skinny body, thin bone structure and long legs makes her look taller. So I think she was like 5'7" - 5'7".5 in a best case (max) also I'm pretty sure she grew after 2012 for like a half inch, cause now she looks taller than 2012. And I can't get why she's that "short", cause her siblings are both tall (over 5'9").

Im not fan of her. so 5.6-5.7 for cara.)
hector said on 3/Aug/15
164 cm,just like Selena Gomez
Dan said on 1/Aug/15
I wouldn't give Cara such a high number at first glance, but 5'7 looks legit.
Also, not sure what you're trying to do here, Arch; you definitely don't have to sound the way you sounded on this page, especially if you're going to base your 'opinion' from a bunch of photos. Cara is a gorgeous lady objectively speaking, no matter what you think.

5'6.5 - 5'7 is right.

Not in the slightest bit sexy Leif. Everything about her screams public school brat.

@ Lissa98 she is not short,she is average 5.6
pj said on 13/Jul/15
that photo of her and selena look like they are the same height. however, ill give her the benefit of the doubt and say she is at the very least 5'7. she is small, for a model that is, but she's got nice proportions, long legs and very small boned. Ideal for modeling. now, obviously without her connections, I dont think shed be where she is today nor would most "top" models in today's age.
Lissa98 said on 13/Jul/15
why she looks so short? even with actors and fans
said on 5/Jul/15
Rob, I noticed that models who are in the 5'6-5'8 range are automatically listed as 5'9.5, or 5'9 and 5'10. Then models, save for some like Adriana, who are only 5'10 or a hair taller than that are given 5'10.5 or 5'11. Then anyone taller than 5'11 is downgraded to 5'11 or 5'11.5.
Sometimes though, models are rounded up or down like say Iggy when she use to model. Makes you wonder whose actually telling the truth heh. Of course, you have people like Lima or Kurkova who are most likely telling the truth.
They should really just measure and state the height. Lying about it is a bit silly, but then, when you can get more jobs by lying up or down, you can see why people fall into that trap.]

5'5 to 5'6 and my love
dat said on 16/Jun/15
I'd gave her 171 or 172cm. no more.
Sean said on 16/Jun/15
Hm. Based on that photo with Selena, I think she's not quite 5'7, but certainly no shorter than 5'6. In my opinion, she's only up to a half inch shorter than listed, so 5'7 is a fine listing.
Cathy said on 15/Jun/15
Jourdan Dunn is listed at 5'10 not 6'. She still towers over Cara, who is also listed at 5'10.I wonder what the early clients thought of this when they asked for a 5'10 model and Cara shows up closer to 5'4 (@Absurd pictures)And Selena Gomez used to be listed at 5'4 just before that Selena and Cara picture came out.
