Union is no taller then this and really could be more of a strong 5'6. This is a person that almost always is in heels or athletic sneakers with exaggerated heels so yeah she probably does seem taller then this.

Rob who would you say is the tallest Gabrielle or Sanna Lathan they both look reasonable 5"7er?
Editor Rob: I'd have given Sanaa a possible edge, but both may well be close enough to 5ft 7

Shes no bigger than 5'7 and i would say thats even to tall. On chelsea lately she was about the same height as her and shes 5'6. I would say 5'6.5.

I might round Gabrielle up to between 5-7 and 5-8. I saw her Oscar night. She is GORGEOUS!
Barbara said on 8/Jul/08
I saw that same article in Essence. She was sitting down so it was hard to tell how tall she is. I will buy that she is at least 5'6"
anonymous said on 1/Jul/08
was called 5'7.5 in essence magazine
Bruce said on 26/Jun/08
oh please she is nothing less than 5'8" because she has a bikini shot with ANTM winner CariDee who is 5'11". and she was only about 2-3 inches shorter than her.
diana said on 22/May/08
seriously 5'6? i mean i just saw her on ugly betty and unless she was wearing 4-5 inch heels which i highly doubt she was always the same height as eric mabius. i really think she's a solid 5'8. she was always a good deal taller than dunst in bring it on minus all the camera angles

if Chris Howard is 5'10 she has to be at least 5'7

copy and paste image below and see them next to eachother thats like a two inch difference minus the hat i would have to say shes at least 5'7.5
sweetchari said on 2/Apr/08
She is very pretty and to be honest I have always seen her listed as a 5'8" woman in every article that mentioned her height so idk its odd she is listed so short here. She looks about 5'9ish in the photo with Glenn so idk!
conclusion said on 10/Feb/08
i met her in person, i swear. she had on high heel shoes. i calculate shes 5'8/ 5'9
ceria said on 6/Nov/07
i didn't known she was that short i thought she was at least 5.9, but she still looks great and is the best looking black girl
Vicky said on 31/Oct/07
In other web site I heard that she is 5 ft 7.75 in . Or even more... I think she is really pretty ;)) I love her in Busta's Ryhmes video 'I love my chick'. She looks hot. You guys don't think so? ;)
glenn said on 26/Aug/07
i have to dig it up.sorry.
Daniel said on 25/Aug/07
Hi, Glenn! What about the picture you promised 7 months ago?
Glenn said on 17/Jan/07
I bumped into her again the next day and we were both in black coincendently.will post one day.thanks Daniel!
Daniel said on 16/Jan/07
Congratulations, Glenn! What a beautiful girl she is!
16and5'7'' said on 14/Jan/07
wait....i don't get it rob...if you have her listed as 170 cm shouldn't she b listed as 5'7'' instead of 5'6 3/4''??

[Editor Rob: her old partner was measured for the draft. Oh, inches are stored, centimetres aren't, so it converts from the inch->cm]
sweetcharity said on 17/Dec/06
I always thought she was five-eight because an article in Essence magazine listed her that way in a description to start off the article. In Rip the run way she is shorter than LL Cool J but not that much shorter! He is like 6'2'' so that would put him above her six inches or so...i am 5'8 1/2''

[Editor Rob: her old man was measured at 5ft 9 and 5/8ths...she doesn't look 5ft 8 when with that guy]
Alan said on 14/Aug/06
When she was on Friends she appeared taller perhaps it was her heels.
J. said on 8/May/06
So, if Chris Howard, was rounded up to his listed height of 5'10", then Gabrielle's shorter than 5'7", right?

[Editor Rob: I was joking about her being insane...I like this girl a lot ;-)

as for snitching her height, hmm. Well I dunno, 5ft 9 and 5/8ths for howard???...maybe, see this page]
Anonymous said on 7/May/06
5'9....she said it herself...and before acting, she wanted to pursue modelling

[Editor Rob: well, she is CERTIFIABLY INSANE if she said 5ft 9...

maybe the fact her partner was measured at nfl draft at a little under 5ft 10 (he got rounded up) slipped her mind...]
J. said on 1/May/06
According to some online sources, her height was supposedly said to be 5'7" in a 2001 USA Today article.
5\'10chick said on 17/Apr/06
she appears short sometimes and sometimes she appears 5'7 just like eva mendes, if you watch rip the runway on bet she was so short compared to ll cool j
phillyflash said on 23/Dec/05
Yeah, she looked approx. 1 inch taller than Kirsten Dunst while they were both wearing sneakers in "Bring It On", IMO.

Rob, look at Getty Images, for pictures of Gabby and her husband, ex-NFL running back Chris Howard, whose offical NFL height was 5'10" (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/4382/). There's two really good pictures, of both of them (Chris in sneakers; Gabby in heels). Chris is still taller than her. Check it out for yourself and tell me what you think.

[Editor Rob: Excellent. I never knew he was a former player, but correct nfldraftscout has him at 5ft 10 aswell Chris Howard. If true then Gabby is max 5ft 7! This is the pic you refer too]
