I saw her in person when she would have been close to 50 and she stood out as tall or 5'8"-5'9" range and I'd have thought more 5'9", but I don't remember if she had flats or a small to moderate heel, though I know she didn't have big 3" heels. I can believe what viper says too because my Aunt is 64 and has very small bones yet she still looks the same 5'4" she was when she was younger. At most, she's lost a 1/4" to 1/2" by now. I'd have expected her to lose noticeable height by now, but for whatever reason she hasn't. @Danimal: You're right she looks amazing, but that's the point. Christie and AVERAGE 64 year old woman shouldn't be used in the same sentence except to say Christie is NOT the average 64 year old woman. With that said, I don't doubt she's lost some height, but I don't see any reason it must be 1.5".

@ viper - Your Mom may be fractionally above average for her age!

My mom is still 5-3 at 67

She's 64 years old today. The average 70 year woman will have lost 2" from their peak height. If she was a full 5'9" 35 years ago, I'd give her about MAX 5'7.5" today and maybe even under that. She does look amazing for her age though.

She is 5'8.5" peak and 5'7" today

Her daughter is listed at her agency as 5-8.5, which usually means shorter and she is clearly 2 inches taller than her mom. Look at sports illustrated event on wireimage.

One of her daughters unfortunately got her straits from Billy Joel, guess which one :-)
Arch Stanton said on 17/Feb/17
She even admits to thinking she was 5 ft 8! Perhaps 5'8.5 peak would be fair.

@Rob

If you scroll down to the JOhn Legend/Chrissie Teigen photo Click Here it's tough to see her at 5 ft 9 now. Even peak is questionable. She's in heels and I think if stood her best a bit taller than John legend. I would give her 5'7.5 now and 5'8.5 peak probably but your call. She's 62 or 63 now and probably lost an inch. Absolutely stunning woman though :-)
Editor Rob: over 5ft 8 today may be harder to believe, but certainly 20 years ago I think standing tall may have measured closer to her claim.

Her shorter daughter claims to be 5ft 3.

I think that peak height should be 5'8" and the present height should be 5'7"

Kelly Felix, you sound jealous of anyone taller than you. You also need mental help if you genuinely think any woman above 5'5 must be a man.
Kelly Felix said on 10/Nov/15
Well I get measured at 5'4 and 5'5 Though believe I am 5'5 and I have been told I am tall for a girl so maybe this person knew something that no one else knows since I know I am not short for a woman and I definitely know 5'9 is tall for a woman I do not know what planet this person lives on who says 5'9 for a woman is not tall Not to be an ass but I believe any woman taller than me must be a man and truly don't believe god intended for women to be any taller than me Maybe something occurred long ago and this is how the devil has deceived the world

Is it possible that her peak height is 5'9, and that her current height is 5'7 since she's 3 inches shorter than Kate Upton?

She aged well because she isn't tall. Tall women look even more masculine with age.

I would have said by 70 not 60. I haven't lost any yet and I'm 54

Lol, I suspect her face as aged 'really darn well' due to a good plastic surgeon! she may have shrunk 1/2 inch but I doubt much more at 60

Actually, the average woman will have lost around 1.5" by age 60.

Ras said on 28/Aug/14
You guys gotta take into account that she's 60 now, most probably has shrunk (even if her face tells us she's aged really darn well!). I think she could be 5'7.5-5'8 nowadays, peak height was most probably 5'9.

Towering at 2", Towering is more like 5".
John said on 20/Feb/14
With 5-10 Kate Upton....do you really still think she is 5-9

If you look at the background of the recent Sports Illustrated event and see where the top of her head reaches compared to all of the other models who are 5-9 (Molly Sims) or 5-10(Carol Alt, Rachel Hunter), it is pretty clear that she is 3 inches shorter than all of them. She is not tall

Because Cheryl Tiegs really towers over her by at least 2 inches, I thought Christie's just 5'7.

Or should Cheryl Tiegs be listed as 6' tall?
[Editor Rob: I think she has said 6ft before, maybe she was 5ft 11 ]
Brad said on 1/Jan/14
5' 9" a foot away in '86.
Bob said on 31/Dec/13
I think she is 5'8" 173 cm
John said on 30/Dec/13
She is no more than 5-8. She was listed at this height by her modeling agency. Plus, Cheryl tiegs towers over her
