Heidi Klum's Height
5ft 9 (175.3 cm)
German Model and TV host. She mentioned once in a TVGuide chat, "I'm 5' 9 1/2"
, although in Allure Magazine (February 2005) Heidi says that her actual height is 5ft 9 but she adds 1/2 inch because everyone else lies about their height.

In the 90's, she was 5ft 9, but now she is older, so solid 5ft 8.
Junior Hernandez 1990 said on 24/Oct/18
Average guess is terrible. Lol she look what she claim 5'9.
Nik said on 30/Jul/18
At least Heidi admits it!
Batistataker said on 29/Jul/18
Looked so tall and beautiful beside Seal, is easily 5'9/175.3
Oliver said on 3/Jul/18
@khaled taban, Heidi is no less than 5ft 8.5. If Heidi is just 5ft 8, that would make Zendaya 5ft 7-7.5 which is impossible.

Isn’t the 176cm she’s mostly listed as closer to 5’9”? (The conversion comes as 5’9.29)
said on 30/Mar/18
She's undoubtedly what she says (175cm or 5'9"in), the greatest indicator is her presence among other tall models, like here:
even said on 29/Mar/18
she is 5 foot 9 when she wakes up .
MAD SAM said on 22/Jan/18
Nothing beyond 173 cm
Don Julio said on 13/Jan/18
She tends to look around 174 cm, sometimes 175 cm
John said on 6/Jan/18
If she was 5-8.5 and is always listed at 5-9...why would people always say she is so much shorter than expected. That is not reasonablly possible. The difference is so slight that nobody would make that comment.
Oliver said on 6/Jan/18
She's not just 5ft 7 as some people say. I think she's a weak 5ft 9, like 5ft 8.5-8.75 range.
Cathy said on 31/Dec/17
I love Heidi but she admits to not being as tall as people think and that's why she's always in heels. Probably around 5'6.5 But she's still the Body! Marissa Miller is really the short one!
paulo said on 17/Dec/17
171 suits for her
John said on 8/Dec/17
And Allie, before you try to spin this, NOBODY would tell someone who is listed at 5-9 that she looks SO MUCH SHORTER THAN EXPECTED. 5-9 is tall for a women. Heidi has never been listed above 5-9. This is all the proof you need. And keep in mind she is the exact same height as Alessandra Ambrosio and Cindy Crawford based on pics with them so they ARE NOT CLOSE TO 5-9 either

Allie look at this article. I can’t say anymore.
said on 28/Nov/17
@John - Those heels probably give her 3 inches, no platform and looks like standard heels many women wear. I'd say David around 5'4.5-5'5. and is wearing sneakers and she's leaning and losing height as well. If she were to straighten up the difference would probably be around 6 inches I'd say. That pegs her at at least 5'8-5'9.
I don't buy a full 5'9 for Heidi though. I think she's closer to 5'8.5/174. At times she can look as low as 5'8 but can come off as looking a full 5'9.
John said on 19/Nov/17
She always does...in her heels
Joshua said on 6/Nov/17
She always look 5’9
John said on 24/Sep/17
In heels (as usual), 5 to 6 inches taller than 5-4 1/2 David Spade...she is not that tall
Marilyn said on 21/Sep/17
Smaller than Doutzen
John said on 27/Aug/17
I can't believe people do not pick on some obvious pictures that prove she can't be close to 5-9. On her instagram there is a recent pic of her in her usual heels and Howie Mandel in shoes. They are exactly the same height. On this site, people who have met him say he is no taller than 5-8 in shoes. Even give him 5-9. She should tower over him if she was 5-9 in heels and she is the same freaking height as him.
even said on 17/Jul/17
5'9" , 125 lbs
Emma said on 9/Jul/17
She doesn't look 10 cm taller than Mel B.
John said on 31/May/17
Glad you are done. Funny that you keep thinking I said she always wears 6 inch heels (she did) and you picked one of the only pics with Lena in which heels are not shown. The others show her 3 inches smaller in most pics.
Allie said on 28/May/17
Anyways, I'm done John. There is more then enough picture consistent picture proof showing that Heidi looks 5'8-5'9 and not 5'7 or lower as you or others claim.
Now, once again if Heidi were to measure herself in the evening or take a picture with Rob then maybe we can come to a conclusion but until then, both in pics and videos she holds her ground at looking roughly 5'8-5'9.
said on 28/May/17
John, Heidi doesn't wear 6 inch heels 90 percent of the time. Have you ever worn or seen 6 inch heels? Cause the majority of these heels in these pictures do not look 6 inches. And I've worn 6 inch heels before. Here she is with Karlie Kloss:
But Karlie's the one wearing platforms while Heidi's not wearing any. She looks 5'8-9 there and Karlie's the one with the heel advantage. For comparison Doutzen who is 5'9 in the exact same heels with Karlie in the picture below. Here she is with Doutzen in roughly the same size heels:
With Doutzen again, and she's not dwarfed by Behati whose 5'10-5'11 herself.
The heels around the exact same size. She does not look 4 inches shorter than 5'11 Karolina Kurkova.
And she is like almost the exact same height as Adriana and Tyra who are 5'9-5'10. And no, they're wearing the same design of heels.
And if she was 5'7 or shorter, she'd be almost a whole head shorter than her husband, but despite the slight footwear advantage and perhaps a slight distance advantage, she doesn't look a whole head shorter than him. Though this photo may not be the best evidence.
And here, the heels she wearing are the same in the picture Rob posted and there is no platform and they are NOT 6 inches. They're not they look like average heels. If she was only 5'7 she not look this tall in comparison to Seal with no platform heels.
And here, Lena doesn't dwarf Heidi does she? None of them have a giant heel difference.
Here, Lena's actually shorter than Jennifer Hof, whose 181 cm or taller:
Finally here, roughly the same footwear, whatever difference in heel is not drastic, she does look 3 inches shorter than 177 cm Adriana.
Now if she were to measure herself or Rob were to take a picture with her then the proof would be solidified but until then, then is consistent pics where Heidi looks 5'8-5'9.
John said on 19/May/17
Allie, you are insane. Every pic shows shoes and Heidi is in her usual 6 inch heels and is 3-4 inches smaller than Lena. Plus, in her apple halloween costume with what looks like 8 inch heels, Lena is same height while wearing flats. Why is so inconceivable that Heidi is 5-7? What explains her quote that said when I am in flats I am always told how I am so much shorter than expected, which is why she said she always wears 6-7 inch heels? And, she is still not much taller than most people she stands next too.
Allie said on 14/May/17
But she's around an inch or less shorter than 5'9 Doutzen and around Karlie Kloss she looked 5'8 but was wearing no platforms while Karlie was.
Heidi's likely around 5'8-5'8.5. She can look 5'9 sometimes but looks more along the 5'8-5'8.5 more often then not. Also there are photos where the height difference between her and Lena was all over the place. Several of the photos had bad angles or did not show footwear. But she looks 5'8-8.5 around the other Vs models.
John said on 31/Mar/17
Rob please google heidi klum and 5-10 Lena gercke. Both in heels and Heidi is towered over. Post a pic and let people decide.
John said on 22/Mar/17
That is what I have been saying for years. She has admitted that she wears 6-7 inch heels so she can appear as tall as models who are 5-11 (180cm) and she says she always wears heels because when she doesn't people always say how she is so much shorter than expected.
John said on 12/Mar/17
Google Klum and gwen Stefani. Pics in which both are in flats and they are the same height. She is only taller when she wears her usual platform heels.
John said on 9/Feb/17
She is exactly the same height as Alessandra ambrosio at the recent AMFAR event. Josephine Skriver who is 5-10 was about 3 inches above the harry Winston sign in the background. Klum and Alessandra were close to the top of the sign if not at the top of the sign.
John said on 28/Jan/17
Based on the background of the bazaar 150 women's event, she is slightly taller than 5-7 Miranda Kerr and 3 inches shorter than Kate upton. She admitted she wears monster heels bc when she is in flats people always say she is so much shorter than they think she would be. 5-9 women do not appear or look short. She IS short for a supermodel. List her at her proper height of 5-7 or 5-7.5 already
Jan said on 20/Jan/17
No way she is 5'9. 5'8.5 at best but closer to 5'8. She's the exact height as miranda kerr and at times looks even shorter.
said on 5/Jan/17
how tall Heidi klum in these heels?
Editor Rob: carmen, Heidi should measure an easy 6ft 1 range in those heels, they are a pretty decent size.
Arch Stanton said on 1/Jan/17
She looks about 6 ft in heels. Simon Cowell looks about 5 ft 10 in comparison but remember he wears stacked heels to look more 5'10 than 5'8.
Phillippe said on 27/Aug/16
I take back what i said
Looking more at it you see heidi's posture is not as good as doutzen's
Doutzen has always perfect posture.
I think both are 5'9.
john said on 25/Aug/16
Barely taller than Simon cowell in her usual high heels.... Explain?
truth said on 14/Aug/16
Looks like a legitimate 175cm woman. I guess short guys under her height are insecure and want to downgrade her, what a shame.
Rojina said on 7/Aug/16
In real-life 5"9 doesn't appear as amazonian was it does on screen or on the catwalk. I have a close friend around that height and she doesn't exactly dwarf me (Im between 5"5 and 5"6)
said on 14/Jul/16
Doutzen kroes is slightly taller than heidi, and they are both listed here at 5'9
And heidi is the same height as miranda kerr (5'8.5)
Maybe downgrading heidi 0.5 inch is the best solution since doutzen's height was given as 5'9 by DNA(her modelling agency), so she isn't above 5'9, otherwise the agency would have claimed it(maybe even bumped her height up a bit, and she would be listed 5'11). And she looks a solid 5'9,while heidi looks slightly under the mark.
Heidi is also the same height as alessandra, so 5'8.5 would be a perfect guess for her.
Anton said on 21/May/16
Im sorry rob
You were right
Alessandra is a little shorter than heidi
The listing is on point.
5'9 for heidi
5'8.5 for alessandra
John said on 21/May/16
She is shorter than Alessandra at Cannes...Alessandra is 2 inches shorter than 5-9 Kroues....You do the math on Klum
said on 24/Mar/16
How about downgrading her to 5ft8.5?
Or maybe, upgrade alessandra to 5ft8.75
I dont know, do you think heidi is a strong 5'9?
Editor Rob: it is possible she has lost a fraction, or was always a weak 5ft 9.
MaryAnne said on 26/Jan/16
She does not have to be as tall as Claudia as she is not a fashion model like her.At least 5'9 is enough for her. As Karl said she has not done any high fashion runway work and Karl does not know who she is. Neither does Claudia.
John said on 25/Jan/16
Google Heidi Klum and Lena Gercke. Gercke is listed at 5-10 and look at the gettyimages pics. Both are in equal heels and Klum comes up to her nose. Really, this is such a joke.
said on 31/Dec/15
Rob how tall would you guess her father at?
I reckon he looks around the 6'5" mark. She obviously gets her height from him!
Editor Rob: might be in 6ft 4 zone
John said on 10/Dec/15
Careful Div...Rob and Allie (aka Heidi Klum) won't let you ever think klum is less than 5-9. I mean, Elle macpherson was listed in Guinness book of world records at 6-1 but Rob lowered her to 5-11 1/2 and Sharapove who appears 6-2 to 6-1.25 because people said so, but the most obvious liar on his site Klum never gets down graded. Allie (Klum) will attack me for saying this, but she might be mad at me soon. Notice, she never commented about the article in which klum said she USUALLY wears 7 inch heels
said on 8/Dec/15
rob here is she is with Milla Jovovich who most believe is 5' 7" at most . Heidi looks an inch taller than Milla at most . Heidi is 5'8 at most , most likely 5'7.5"
said on 8/Dec/15
Rob here she is with 5'7 Caprice . She is shorter than Caprice 5'8 or 5'9 is impossible . She is barely 5'7.

Allie, please read this article
John said on 29/Nov/15
I'm going to say this one more time for the reading impaired....I did not say she always wears 5-7 inch heels but SHE did in an interview because when she's not in heels, people always say that she is so much shorter in person than people think she is. I mentioned in an earlier post how you can get to the article.
Allie said on 28/Nov/15
Bob, that comment was to John sorry. John keeps on saying that Heidi only seems to wear 5-6 inch heels, which would mean that she's wearing platforms all the time because a lot heels that are suppose to be 5-6 inch (more so 6 inches) plus are typically platforms. Also, I know it's in heels, but she's a fashion model, a female one. So since I have a better picture painted of the realistic model's heights as opposed to actors or singers I use them as a benchmark for Heidi. Besides most of the time the Angels get simplar heels and shoes for events.
Also John, I am not Heidi posting on this site. I ain't even from Germany. And John, stop denying that Karlie wasn't wearing bigger heels. It seems your emphasizing that only Heidi's heels were big. Karlie's had a pretty sizeable palatform and thus a bigger heel and more height. Take that away and I'd estimate Heidi at 5'8.
Yes Heidi is not 5'9, maybe in the morning as I see her being a strong 5'8 range by the afternoon.
said on 24/Nov/15
Allie, based on this comment of yours "Not the best picture Bob. Seal's walking BEHIND her."
Yes, Seal is about half a step behind her, which is pretty negligible in my opinion. If you want to go there, it means based on my original estimation/analysis of the picture, I actually overestimated Heidi a bit since people in front appear bigger (which means Heidi might not even be quite reaching Seal's chin). All the pictures you have posted are Heidi in heels, creating much more guessing/estimation on our part. The picture I originally attached Click Here
is one of the very few with Seal and Heidi not in heels
Also, I have never said Heidi only wears platforms. I'm afraid you were mistaken.
Along with this pic by Allie Click Here
feel she might be 5'8"
Allie and John - we can all agree that Heidi is not 5' 9" but probably in the 5'8" range. 5'7" is a bit low.
Time for a downgrade for Heidi, celebheights Rob!
John said on 17/Nov/15
And in the pic with kloss, Heidi's heels are huge.
John said on 17/Nov/15
Your crazy. Look at the angle of Heidi's foot at the ankle. It's clear as day that she is in the higher heels. I wish you would just admit that you are Heidi Klum posting on this site already.
said on 15/Nov/15
Here's my case. Back it up with pictures and let's have a little debate. Hopefully, you guys can see that 5'9-5'10 is ridclious for her, but 5'7 is just as silly as well.
Here she is 5'9 range Gigi Hadid. Now, John show me proof of her "bigger" heels. Because if you haven't noticed, Gigi's look she she has a tiny platform as well. And does this really look like 2 inches? No. And John, there's almost no platform on Heidi's heels. You're just making bs up.
Here's Doutzen Kroes with Heidi Klum. Doutzen is listed as 5'9 originally, and she says she is too but sometimes an extra inch is added. Doutzen doesn't look 2 inches taller. More like 3/4 of an inch. This was during the finale of the 2009 VSFS.
Now here's the heels:
They're both similar heels, both have a little platform on them. And even if you argue that Heidi's platform is a little bigger, know that it's only by a little bit and it wouldn't even make that much difference in heel height.
Here she is with Seal. And Bob, as I said, Seal's walking behind her so your guess is off base unless they're standing side by side and both in similar pose (ie - they're both standing still) I'll go with Rob's listing of 6'3.5. In these pictures, there's NO platform even though you people keep on saying that Heidi ONLY wears platform heels which is an outright lie. Heidi is about 3.5-4 inches shorter. So, assuming Seal's 6'4.5 in dress shoes, she's around 6'0-6'1 range here. No way a 5'7 and shorter girl can achieve that without a platform.
Here she is with Karlie Kloss, but surprise! Whose wearing the big platforms heels? Not Heidi! And she looks 171-172 range here.. but whose heels are bigger?
Just for my last bit, here she is with 5'10 Tyra, Gisele and Adriana and 5'11 Karolina Kurkova. This was from the finale of the 2003 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. You can watch the segment on youtube if you want to see the heels more clearly. But models in the segments typically almost always get similar heels to match the theme of the segment.
Heidi doesn't look 5'7 here.
I rest my case. I could you guys several more pictures and evidence that show that Heidi's not as short as 5'7, but anything above 5'9 is pushing it. Solid 173-174.
Allie said on 15/Nov/15
Not the best picture Bob. Seal's walking BEHIND her.
And can you read my comments again John? I've said she isn't 5'9 but more likely closer to 5'8-5'8.5 range.
John said on 14/Nov/15
I couldn't agree with you more Bob
said on 13/Nov/15Click Here
In this picture, if Seal is indeed in the 6' 3" - 6' 4" range which he does appear to be, with these shoes on Seal is over 6' 4" in this picture. Heidi, wearing sandals that add almost no height, reaches Seal's chin. A human skull is about 9" in height. There is no way Heidi Klum is a real 5' 9" I say she's 5' 7.5", in the 5' 8" to 5' 7" range
Janet said on 12/Nov/15
I think 5'9-5'10 is a good range with her
John said on 3/Nov/15
So are you finally agreeing that she is Not 5-9?
Allie said on 2/Nov/15
How do you know John? That just assumption. Gigi's looked just as big as hers. They even look like they have a teeny platform on them. Gigi's also known for wearing giant heels as well. And the difference was minimal. Gigi's not even a full inch shorter. The top of their hairline's didn't look more than a half inch difference. She's a strong 5'8. Maybe even 174 if her posture's good,
John said on 1/Nov/15
Shorter than 5-9 Gigi Hadid despite wearing bigger (what are the odds) heels at her annual Halloween party.
Allie said on 31/Oct/15
Have you ever worn heels John? Do you know how platforms work? Obviously not. The platform I saw looked an inch. I have a pair of shoes with an inch platform. You know what the advertised said? That were only around 5.5 inches. That inch platform only adds little height to the heel. and in the end, I'm not getting 5.5 inches of height.
Also, google her pics with Douzten. Heidi's only a little bit shorter. And Doutzen says she's 5'9. Then google Doutzen with Karlie. Following your downgrades, if Heidi's 5'7 then Doutzen's 5'8 and Karlie's 6'0. Which would make every other model an inch shorter than what they really are. Heidi's a strong 5'8. The lowest I see her is 173. Maybe even 174 after a couple hours outta bed.
John said on 28/Oct/15
If she looked 5-9 with platform shoes, how can only bring her down to 5-8 1/4? There is so much physical evidence that she is 5-7. She said herself that she is not as tall as people think and people say how short she is when she is not wearing heels. Google Heidi klum not as tall as you think and you will see the article
Allie said on 28/Oct/15
John, Yet she looks a strong 5'8 near Karlie Kloss yet Karlie Kloss has a platform on her heels. She also looked only 5'9 with Tyra and the other VS models in the finale of one of the shows. But she had a platform on her shoes while the others didn't. She's also like an inch MAX shorter than Doutzen whose a strong 5'9. I now think that 5'8.25 is perfect for her. She's not 5'7 yet alone a ridiculous 5'6 like you and many others are saying Heidi is.
John said on 20/Oct/15
This needs to be changed to 5-7 or under. She wears platform heels to every event and admitted it. Toni Garrn is 5-6 inches taller in the most recent event they were at. Go to wire image and search angel ball. One pic hey are together but not directly next to each othe and Toni towers over her. If you look at the other pics based on the back drop, Klums eye is at Toni's chin. Why are you so against putting her at 5-7? She is tiny without her heels.
John said on 15/Sep/15
To Alicia...what are you commenting on? I never said kloss isn't 6-1 at a minimum.
Alicia said on 11/Sep/15
John, are you serious Kloss is one in the tallest Vs models
Allie said on 6/Sep/15
She only looked 5'9 with the other VS models when she had a platform on her heels. While the other VS models were wearing normal heels. That photo was from the 2003 VSFS so she couldn't have lost height as she was around 30 by then. 172-173 for her.
John said on 18/Aug/15
Where are you fray? You claim to have measured all these people but when asked you are not around
John said on 14/Aug/15
So Fray, are you confirming that she is under 5-9?
fray said on 6/Aug/15
Never measured her during the vs show (she was already the big deal), but she was most definitely one of the shortest. She was never really a runway model (other than VS) she mostly did print/catalog.
MaryAnne said on 2/Jul/15
John said on 17/May/15
Kloss next to 5-9 Krous (I think that is how you spell it) gives more proof that klum is 5-7 tops. Look at klum next to kloss and it's clear she is at least 2 inches shorter than where Krous comes up to Kloss.
John said on 10/May/15
Please go to wire image and search klum. 1st group is Germany next top model photocall. Klum is in the middle and dwarfed by all 4 models. I googled the model on the right whose last name is Fuchs..she is 5-10.
Jay said on 8/May/15
Should be around 5'7.5.
John said on 24/Apr/15
I need an explanation. Lena Gercke, germany's next top model is 5-10. She is 3-4 inches taller than klum in all pictures and klum is in her 7 inch heels. Go to wire image. Klum is in huge heels in a Halloween pic and Lena is in short heels and is still taller. Why can't you finally lost her at 5-7????
Skye said on 23/Apr/15
5'8's more like it. That Tyra picture really changed my perspective on her height. Though every time people mention that when [insert female celeb here] wears 6 inch heels, they still don't look very tall. I have a pair of heels that are maybe 4 inches. Only give me roughly 2 inches of height.
said on 2/Apr/15
She's close to adriana and gisele here
John said on 30/Mar/15
That second pic with Banks shows all you need to know. No way in hell she is only 1.5-2 inches shorter if Banks is standing tall. It is more like 5 inches. Look how much Banks is bending her leg and is still much taller even in 1 inch sneakers. People who worked with her said she is under 5-7 barefoot (see comments below) and she said she wears heels because when she doesn't people always say that she is so much shorter than expected.
said on 28/Mar/15
Rob, in this pic Tyra is wearing shorter heels and still taller than Heidi Klum, correct?
Also, how much taller is Tyra than Heidi Klum in this pic?
[Editor Rob: she can look more than an inch taller, but it's maybe possible with heel shot heidi has poorer posture...in the other one I'd say there would be 1.5-2 range if tyra stood a bit taller, but then maybe her sneakers are thicker. Quite possible Heidi can look 174 range last few years.]
John said on 20/Mar/15
Seriously, why is she not down graded? This site down grades almost everyone else but this joke stays at 5-9?
JP said on 18/Jan/15
There is no way shes 5'9" this listing should go down to around 5,7.5".
az said on 13/Oct/14
also, VS girls are not treated the same as runway models in high fashion. VS girls are all about the body and there is no need for height in this casting. Most of the girls are between 5'6-5'7. The tall tall high fashion runway girls are 5'8" MINIMUM because of the garments. There are no real garments in VS :) - For example, look up Lily Aldridge runway Resume on Models.com - - You will find that she has no runway except VS Runway because she is stunningly gorgeous but under 5'8". Marissa Miller too. Heidi is also quite short and has few real designer runways on her resume. VS is a totally different game.
az said on 13/Oct/14
I'm sorry. No. I have seen Heidi back stage at fashion shows and at the Vanity Fair Party in LA in 2008. She is stunning and perfect etc. but she is NOT 5'9. She is 5'7" at most barefoot measured by a doctor. I would believe 5'6 3/4" as dead honest. But remember....ALWAYS subtract 2" minimum from hollywood heights. It's a pretty general rule. Heidi's toned figure is crazy admirable btw.
said on 16/Aug/14
Idk if these pics have been discussed but heidi with 5'6.5" emmy rossum(according to this site) during a taping of project runway...
...their shoes for comparison. Neither is wearing a platform and heels are similar
Seems heidi is no more than .25" taller than emmy. Supports heidi being no more than 5'7".
John said on 25/May/14
What other model admits to wearing 7 inch heels bc she is short? None, that's who. Because she is short and is not a hair over 5-7.
said on 15/Apr/14
Rob is Heidi taller than Alassandra? Click Here
said on 3/Apr/14
Here is the article
John said on 3/Apr/14
More proof that she is NOT tall...she says in the article that she wears heels all the time because when she wears flats people always say you are so much shorter than I thought you were. 5-9 is not short, so she is probably what I ave always said at 5-7
John said on 23/Jan/14
Because Heidi is not 5-9. She wears and admits to always wearing the highest heels possible. And she still does not tower over people like she would if her heels made her 6-3
Marusa said on 23/Jan/14
If she is 5'9, then why did she appear the same height as 5'7Zoe saldana?? They were standing next to each other and Heidi's heels seemed more massive

I am saying that if the heels are advertised to give full 5inches they could probably give an inch less. That is all I am saying. Btw I know how Rob compares height based on heels, you did not have to tell me that, but thanks anyway.
John said on 19/Dec/13
Rob, I agree with you. All I'm saying is that a person in 4 inch heels is 4 inches taller than they old be barefoot.
said on 17/Dec/13
Let's talk about Rob's article on heel height shall we....notice that everytime he is pictured next to someone he says they have a 2 inch heel height over me and the person is always listed at 5 feet 8, which is the same height as Rob. I guess that means the 2 inch heel raises them up....well 2 inches. Isn't that strange? So, 5 inch heels only raise your height 2 but 2 inch heels raise them 2 as well. Just go back and look at everyone that is next to him and he factors in exactly their heel height when commenting on their height. Never once has he said they had a 4 inch heel, so that only makes a 2 inch difference. Show me one example.
[Editor Rob: whenever I talk about footwear with anybody beside me I'm always saying what the heel would actually give and then the difference between mine and theirs.
Like say Maryse Heels
...I have one inch, hers wouldn't give her any less than 4 inch so she's got about 3-inch advantage.]
truth said on 15/Nov/13
Fact of the matter is heels do not add that much as people believe, check out Robs article "Heel Height Truth".
truth said on 15/Nov/13
Looked at the pics, yeah those are pretty killer heels I dunno how much but I guess more than 3 inches. I am not stating things just yet, only observing.
John said on 12/Nov/13
Truth, change your name to lie. She admits that she wears the highest heels possible. Look at her heels. They are all platform and she wears no less than 5-6 inch heels.
truth said on 11/Nov/13
6inch heels? More like 3 inches.
John said on 4/Nov/13
Ok, if she is 6-1 wearing 5-6 inch heels than she is at most 5-8
truth said on 3/Nov/13
umm John I am sorry but he looks a lot taller than Zack (not sure about 5ft11 looks shorter) or wathever he is, she is 6ft1 in heels, the listing is accurate. I have noticed with supermodels that they usually have extremely poor posture at events to match short guys LOL.
truth said on 3/Nov/13
I know a girl of her proportions and she is legit 176cm midday or 5ft9-10. YOu midgets should stop dwongrading people though. 5ft7 is clearly joke.
truth said on 3/Nov/13
5ft9-10 looks legit, she is quite tall.
little sue said on 18/Oct/13
Well Kate Moss has been a runway model and is barely 5ft 6, although she probably an exception, she was modelling from a very young age though and I guess they assumed she would grown taller.
Randomgirl said on 16/Oct/13
5 to 6 inches are you sure? Maybe you are seeing what you want to see...I don't know what age people start shrinking but it is pretty unheard of for a runway model to be under 5'8 like I said, even 5'8 is pretty rare, and she does look the height of the models on PR or maybe only slightly shorter, so I'm really not buying the under 5'8 thing unless you have substantial accurate proof.
John said on 15/Oct/13
Random girl...I'm sure you must notice that she never wears heels less than 5-6 inches and still doesn't tower over other people. She is taller bc even at 5 feet 8, she would be over 6 feet in 5-6 inch heels
Randomgirl said on 14/Oct/13
People, people, runway models are very very veeerrrrrry rarely less than 5'8 and a vast majority of the time they are at least 5'9. I don't know what you people who are saying she's less than 5'8 are on. I watch project runway religiously, I have seen no evidence to indicate that she is less than 5'9.
heightobsessed said on 25/Sep/13
i think shes closer to 5'8, but like it matters. shes still quite tall for a woman, and has made it as a fabulous supermodel!

Heidi has zero upper body height. If you look at her, she has long legs and almost no upper body. There is a recent pic of 5'6 Lauren bush next to karlie kloss. She is about the same height difference as klum next to kloss. She is at most 5 feet 8, but more likely 5'7
John said on 24/May/13
She (in 5 inch heels) was at least 6 inches shorter than 6 foot 1 karlie kloss (look at recent wireimage pic from Cannes)
John said on 17/May/13
Why doesn't anyone comment on her always wearing 5-6 inch heels? She still doesn't tower over many people. She's about 1 inch taller than 5 foot 9 plus howie Mandel in herv5 inch heels.

She wasn't taller than swift. Swift was bending down to kiss her despite klum being in 5-6 inch heels.
Big T said on 12/Nov/12
Taller than Taylor Swift, but not over 5'9".
Elizabeth said on 30/Oct/12
I don't think she is 5'9. Somewhere between 5'8 and 5'9. She has a thicker waist and legs which also make her look shorter. How does she compare to Alessandra Ambrosio?
little sue said on 23/Sep/12
Its only the back of the leg which is up, its not a flat surface is it?? go and buy some heels from a charity shop in your size and try it yourself
Steven said on 22/Sep/12
That makes no sense at all...other people have been quoted as saying they are 6 inches taller in 6 inch heels. She is no taller than 5 feet 8, might be 5 feet 7.5 max
little sue said on 17/Sep/12
Because 5 inch heels would only really add just over 3 inches in height
Steven said on 16/Sep/12
Michael kors said he is 5 feet 10. In a recent pic, klum, wearing her usual 5 inch heels, was standing next to him and he was in shoes. She was at most an inch taller than him. How can she be 5 feet 9 and appear 6 feet max in 5 inch heels?
Will said on 4/Sep/12
Heidi Klum is no more than 5'9". She stands a strong 5'8" tall.

Rob any guesses for how tall her bodyguard/new boyfriend is. See the Seal pic, he's noticeably taller. Near 6'6" maybe?

5 foot 9.
Dural said on 22/Jan/12
She was taller than Kevin James by more than an inch, both barefoot (on German TV-show "Wetten Dass?" last summer). Are you suggesting Kevin James is 5'6"? She's 5'9" or at least close.
Safiron said on 19/Jan/12
I do think all model agancies are lying to make models more employable. I do camera work for living. We've been shooting all kinds of models who claim to be like 180-185cm but in fact they are not. I'm 180cm and maybe one of ten models is slightly taller in shoes than me. Most models are 170-178 tops. They are saying their height with 6cm heels on. In modeling height is important because dresses looks better on taller person, they also chose skinny ones because modeling is about clothes not the girl. Designers just dont want women parts to be a distraction.
Silent d said on 13/Jan/12
5 foot 9. I'm serious, don't models get measured barefoot so the angency can represent. Do they just estimate and say 5 foot 10.
joe said on 9/Jan/12
I am not doubting you barefoot, but she ONLY wears 6 inch heels everytime she is on TV or at an event and she doesn't even come close to her 6 foot 3 or 4 inch husband. If she was 5 feet 9, she would be 6 foot 3 in 6 inch heels and be around his height. Look at them together when they are wearing flats and he towers over her
Barefoot said on 3/Jan/12
Stood next to her at the swimming pool last week (both in bare feet). I'm 5'7" and she was definitely taller than me by at least two inches (she was very nice and normal-acting too). Seal, by the way, was quite tall - well over 6 feet.
Dural said on 2/Jan/12
She's 2 inches taller than Cameron Diaz, so she can't be only 171cm.
Silent d said on 16/Nov/11
175cm. Don't they get measured by the agency. Why do people always assume models are lying? I don't get it.
LAN Jiao said on 1/Nov/11
Shes solid 171cm
LAN Jiao said on 22/Sep/11
if heidi klum 5ft9 i don think killer heels always in needs to fit in her feet. her proportion look like 5ft7 range alot. i always estimate shes only 5ft7.5 - 5ft7.75 possible 5ft8.25 morning. 5ft9 not a chance.
said on 26/Aug/11
Heidi's heels were really higher than Cameron's.
Cameron's shoes had no platform, and Heidi's had. Heidi wore Christian Louboutin "Daffodil" (160cm/6.5 in. heel, 6.5cm/2.5 in. platform, according to net-a-porter).
If the two were the same height, around 2 in. of difference would be a noticeable difference. Look at Chris Gauthier height in celebheights.com, there is a photo with Jenny (and Rob) and the difference between the two is about 2 and 1/4 in.
Cameron Diaz may be a weak 5'8 or even 5'7.5, but for me Heidi is 5'8, 5'8.5 on a good day.
"Daffodil" were the shoes Victoria Bechkham wore at the wedding of Prince Will and Kate, and are also usually wear by Lady Gaga, Fergie, Kim K.,...
said on 25/Aug/11
She dwarfs 5'8" Cameron Diaz in this clip (towards the end). Heidi's heels are higher but Cameron is also in heels so the difference can't be too much.
Shaun said on 16/Jul/11
One of the few truly beautiful supermodels. Mmm I agree with Will possibly 5'8.5". I can buy 5'9" as she looks about 6 foot in heels.

Met her at the airport. She and Seal were on my flight. She stood next to me and spoke to me, and appeared at least 5ft9. We were both in big heals and at my 5ft6 she was easily 3 inches taller.

Heidi Klum is 5'8 1/2" on the dot.

Damian said on 27/Apr/11
ARe you guys kidding me? SHe's definitely 5ft 9in. Tim Gun is a solid 6ft 2in. In the ads for Project Runway in her 6 inch heels, she's taller than he is and he wears shoes with an inch heel. And when she stands next to her husband Seal (who is 6ft 3 in) she is usually an inch or so shorter than he is in her heels (bare in mind he's 6ft 3 with no shoes on). Heidi is a solid 5ft 9.

Klum is somewhere between 5'8" and 5'9" respectively.

all models add an inch or two to their height!!
steve said on 26/Jan/11
if she is 5 feet 9 barefoot, wouldn't it make sense that she would be as tall as her husband, who is 6 foot 3, even when she wears her usual 5-6 inch heels? Notice, that she is NEVER in anything but 5 to 6 inch heels and she still isn't even close to her husband in height.
Pinky said on 22/Jan/11
to blaah: as you said 1ft=12inch, so 5ft9inch= (5x12)inch + 9inch= 60+9= 69 inch (not 71 inches).
I don't think she is more than 5'8.
Blaah said on 15/Jan/11
somehow there's something wrong ... 5 ft 9 isn't 175 cm :/
it would be about 180 cm!
5 ft 9 is about 71 inches (since 1 ft=12inch) and 71 inches are 180 cm (1 inch= 2,54 cm)
I think its a basic mistake since I saw it on a lot of other celebheights too.
Oh and it would be very unlikley that she is 175 or shorter because models on the catwalk are at least 176 and taller...
Nia said on 30/Dec/10

J.lee no offense but that picture doesn't prove anything. as you can likely tell yourself, the camera is at an odd angle making them all look different sizes. marisa miller in that pic looks the same height as heidi ( where as in reality she is like 2/3 incches shorter). i'd say they are about the same size though (heidi and AA) at about 5'7.5/5'8.

Heidi i around 5'7 1/2, 5'8 at most. Read this article. In it, it says Heidi is " 1.76 metres " which is 5'7 1/2 possibly 5'8.
She isn't as tall are peple perceive her to be. . . especially for a runway model.Click Here
Caleb said on 13/May/09
I wish I knew how to post a link, but you should check out Victoria Beckham's guest appearance on Germany's Next Top Model. Heidi is considerably taller, but her heels are gigantic, giving her a couple of inches over Mrs Beckham's large platforms. I'd say 5'8.5" maybe.
J.J. said on 12/May/09
Runway starts at 5'9"-6'0".if you are 6'1" they'll list you as 6'0"(oluchi is 6'1" but agency lists 6'0") It is the 5'7"-5'8" that do commercials & print work. Heidi is 5'9".possibly 5'8.5" but nothing less.
Jane said on 11/May/09
that's true what anonymous said about the comp card. models almost always have their heights fudged on those things by an inch or sometomes 2. take marisa miller for example, she is really only like 5'6/5'7 and she's listed as 5'8". same thing for heidi she is prob 5'8 at the most and they list her at 5'9.5". she was smart to say that quote up above about lying about .5". now a lot of people will think she is honest and a legit 5'9".
Anonymous said on 6/May/09
no, YOU don't know what you're talking about. You don't have to be 5'10. Heidi isn't really a runway model anyway (VS doesn't count). She's far more known for her print work. Besides, you can throw 5'10 on a comp card and no one would know the difference.

she is really pretty ...my favorite model...i agree with her being 5'7.remember in victoria's secret show 2005 when she introduced seal with tyra (watch it on youtube)..gosh.. no way tyra 6'1 if heidi is a real 5'9 1/2.

I know that breed of cow; I'm 5'10", 5'11" max, and the largest one I know of comes to the same height on me; subtract the height of the massive heels (at least 2-3 in.), and she's anywhere from 5'5" to 5'7", most likely just under 5'7".

I think that Klum is about 5'7... I have always followed fashion and have paid attention to her height in photos and TV, b/c to me she always seemed shorter than most other models... If she was really 5'9 that wouldn't be the case... She really doesn't seem 5'9 ever compared with other tall women... She doesn't have a long body at all...

some people add 2-3 inches to their height. not everyday people but celebs and models. kinda like heidi. she looks 5'8. no taller.
Boris 5'10"barefeet said on 27/Feb/09
Most add 1 inch to their height because they've say their height WITH shoes. Driver licences and police mugshots will reflect their height as measured then, and virtually always person is wearing 1/2 inch to 1 inch shoes minimum.

Heidi is ALWAYS wearing heels and did anyone see her on ellen? She was wearing HUGE heels and when she was doing the work out thing she didn't take them off-which was kind of weird..
Ak said on 23/Feb/09
She isnt taller then me im already 178 and i met her one time and there were 3-4 cm difference between us so she have to be 175 or like this ..
J.J. said on 22/Feb/09
Bad postures, some people don't stand straight & many more. She is either 5'9" or 5'8.5" minimum. Nothing else. Is anyone here estimating like 5'6" for Heidi? NO. So that tells you that for you to even think she is 5'7" means that you all know she is tall. So every1 please get over this 1"-2" is nothing if your 5'7" your tall & will always be. She is going to be tall even if she is 5'7" so that's it. BYE
tandy said on 22/Feb/09
she is gettin older her hips gettin bigger...result...clearly she is not 5'9...she could admit it when she was younger...thin body makes longer legs..
Sandy said on 20/Feb/09
mabey I can help clear this up. okay- models are known for lying about their height-it's because if a girl that is let's say 5'8 with a great face (enter heidi klum) comes along and she has what it takes-her career is on the line if they don't list her as at least 5'9. Just like if a girl is listed at 5'8-she is probably more like 5'7-5'6 or sometimes even 5'5 (enter marisa milller). unless your tyra banks or gisele (5'10) and already have the perfect height for the business they will likey bumb you up some.
Big King said on 19/Feb/09
I saw Heidi on a show today and there I estimated her 5'11" and I was very surprized when I saw that her height is written as 5'9" or 5'9 1/2". On german websites she is listed as 176cm, sometimes as 177cm. She looks really tall, so I think that she's above 5'9". 5'8" is ridiculous.
And Rob, where do you wanna know if she's lying about her height and why should everyone else lie about their heights? Are there any evidences?
Sandy said on 13/Feb/09
A tv show doesn't tell you how tall someone is DUH. Heidi is 5'8 MAX.

She is 175 cause if u would watch germany's next topmodel u would see that she isnt more then 175 cm
Sandy said on 9/Feb/09
I'm not sure the girl that met them just said eye level, she wasn't specific with inches. The way I feel is that too many people have met Heidi and said she's between 5'7 and 5'8. Of course, some people lie, but there are too many people now who have met her and said 5'7/5'8- I know it's hard to believe considering she is like a supermodel but I think it's the truth.
J.J. said on 8/Feb/09
Sandy if she is wearing heels & Seal is at 6'4.5" in shoes then Heidi would be about 6'1" in a 5" heel that gives 4" in real height so that still makes her 5'9" b'cos Seal will still be almost 4" tall & that will make her come to his eye- level. I've almost believed she was 5'7.5" but after seeing a picture with Seal in normal slippers in now believe this 5'9". U guys have to remember that Seal is a very tall man standing at almost 6'4" he is not 6'2.75"(this is the exact male equivalent for a 5'9" woman).
renata said on 7/Feb/09
i think i agree with 5'7.i've seen many pictures of her n the angels....and hey...some people say the right things here...
Sandy said on 2/Feb/09
"The thing is, Seal is around 6'3" - 6'4", right? I saw them at an awards red carpet on E! and Heidi came up to around his eye level and she was wearing the usual ever-so-high stilettos. So I'm more keen to say she's around 5'7" but I don't know."
-someone said this on a "models that aren't that tall" thread, just thought i'd post it.

Right. As for me, I think the massive platform heels she wears so often give the illusion of 5'8"+, but I think she's probably 5'7.25".

yea, exactly I think that they put her at 5'8", thought she would grow and then she just ddn't. yo me she still looks like a 5'8" girl.
Anonymous said on 28/Jan/09
Interesting. That means she was anywhere between 5'5" and 5'7". Any taller and they would have bumped her up to 5'9"-5'9.5". Of course, she might have grown past age 15.

i find it funny how models lie about height. when miranda meets heidi she's always 1 or 2cm shorter then klum while she admits being 5'9 n klum 5'9 too.standing next to kk she is very small n also to 5'10 bloom with heels still can't reach his upper head. but i like her she is sweet n seems polite. marisa n selita same. 5'8 marisa is 1 inch shorter than 5'7 selita!

k maybe she's not five foot nine. I rephrase my estimate to 5 foot 8. She was a few inches taller than oprah and they were both in heels. She is still the best victoria secret model for her age with two children. She looks pretty good considering her age and she is a devoted mother. You don't need to be tall to look good. She has a unique face which makes her likeable. Her accent is a little annoying though.

I agree with Kevin, I personaly think Heidi is 5'7 1/4" and I think Marissa is somewhere between 5'5" and 5'6", you can tell by looking at her photos she's not 5'8".

She is nowhere near 5 feet 9. In how I met your mother, she was most likely wearing her usual 5 inch heels and she still wasn't 6 feet next to Harris. Also, eyewitnesses say Marissa Miller is at most 5 feet 5 and Klum is barely taller than her.

Editor Rob, would you consider making a page to discuss Gia Carangi's height. She was a famous supermodel and she was 5'7" but her agency listed her @ 5'11". I think that there would be a lot of opinions and interest regarding her height.

k just because she is the best victoria secret model for her age doesn't mean that she is 5'9 lol. I wouldn't compare her next to oprah or on any t.v show for that matter you have no idea how easy height can be manipulated on camera. The everage height guess on here for heidi is 5'8

she is 5 foot 9. In how i met your mother she was inches shorter than neil patrick harris who is under 6 foot. She was taller than oprah by a few inches even though both of them were in heels. She's one of the best models at the moment. She's the best victoria secret model considering her age.

i'm 5'8 and would love to be that tall. hey Glennhave you met her in person?and is she really 5'9? personally i dont think shes good enough to be a supermodel
Jlee said on 18/Oct/08
I believe you Kathy. Do you know if maybe she was bending down or there was curves on the street or maybe you don't judge accurate? Please respond. thank you.

5'8.5" is a fair height for Heidi Klum after seeing that victoria's secret advert with Tyra on Youtube. I can't blame her fo saying she is 5'9" because i think 5'8.25" - 5'8.5" is pretty much accuarate for Heidi
kathy said on 13/Oct/08
I saw her in NY and she looked about 5'8". She looked slightly shorter than me and I'm 5'9". We were both wearing flats and walking next to each other.
said on 2/Oct/08
well, i don't want to say that about rob cuz i like the guy, he is accurate on most i think. but like heidi and kelly rowan, I question their height. Jessie, all you have to do is copy the youtube adress on the side and paste. here Click Here
But Jessie, this one heidi does actually look closer to tyra's height. more like 5 foot 8 1/2. Rob, how bout you change it to 5 foot 8 1/2. I think that is the most accurate.
Jessie said on 29/Sep/08
I'm tired of this, Rob is this website designed for you to state yor personal opinions about heights or is it here for regular people who have met these celebrities? Almost everyone on this page that has provided pictures or actually met Heidi says she is 5'7 to 5'8.
Jessie said on 29/Sep/08
Here is some more evidence! Okay, I wish I knew how to post this but i can't (sorry) but go on youtube and search- 'heidi klum tyra banks 2'. Wach the video added by lilo3110, it should be the first video that comes up. There is atleast a 2 inch difference between them and Tyra is 5'10.
said on 26/Sep/08
Rob, so are you suggesting that she is one of the shortest looking 5 foot 9 girls? When you think of heidi, people start thinking, she's not that tall! But when you think of mischa barton who is five nine, people start thinking, she's a tall girl! Do you ever consider heidi to be 5 foot 7.5 or 5 foot 8? That trya video is pretty convincing.
[Editor Rob: 5ft 8.5 could be possible but not sub 5ft 8.]
Jessie said on 24/Sep/08
Please that photo hardly counts as evidence. You can't see her full body and god knows what kind of ridiculouse heals she is wearing! Everyone who has met her says she is from 5'7 to 5'8. I personaly think she is self conciouse about saying 5'91/2 because she knows her true height is a good couple inches below that. Think about it, she comes clean about lying about her height by a whole half an inch lol. If she truely were a solid 5'9, she'd be 5'91/2 in the morning anyway and she still finds it neccisary to come clean about something that is very important in her career.
zephyr said on 24/Sep/08
Still in that pic Ryan Seacrest would barely reach the bottom of her ear. I think that counts for towering. Isn't Jordin Sparks like 5'10" anyway? That would be taller than Mrs. Klum :)
Jlee said on 23/Sep/08
It looks like one of those guys is Ryan Seacrest who is ALWAYS towered by girls. If heidi is 5 foot 9, she should tower over Ryan the way Jordan sparks does. Not to mention you can't tell what kind of shoes heidi is wearing. She could be wearing 6 inch heels, she always does.
said on 23/Sep/08
5'9" is right here she is at the 2008 Emmy's taller than all the guys: Click Here
said on 22/Sep/08
Editor Rob, the height can not be that much of a difference even if she has a right hip drop. Does anyone agree with me? atleast list heidi as five foot 8 and a half or five eight. If this is only 1 inch taller, than I wonder how big 2 inches look. Everyone see what i mean here Click Here
said on 21/Sep/08
Editor rob, you have to look a this video that lucy posted way down below. You have tyra listed as her known height, 5 foot 10. Well either tyra is much taller than 5 foot 10 or heidi is not 5 foot 9. If you look at that video, they have the same posture and same shoes. Tyra's hair is bigger, but the difference is too much to explain that. And posture will not make THAT much of a difference. Their height doesn't even look that close. Rob, what is your explanation for that? Tyra is more than 1 inch taller in that video, more like 3 or 4 inches. heels are the same. heidi can not be only 1 inch shorter than tyra. So is it tyra's height that is off or is it heidi's. Rob, please explain this height difference and it's not just cuz of tyra's hair.
[Editor Rob: I don't know about their heels but Heidi looked to have more of a right hip drop for most of that.]
sophie said on 20/Sep/08
she doesn't look 5'9" to me, more 5'7"... I'm 5'8", is that tall for a girl?
Anonymous3434 said on 18/Sep/08
totally agree with J.Lee She is 5'7.5 and that's even pushing it! I would have to say 5'7.25 if you wanna be EXACT lol.
Jessie said on 30/Aug/08
Because her face is so incredibly semtrical, and the proportions on her body are basically perfect that right there is why she is a top model despite being a couple inches shorter then most models. You know, it's kinda funny how kate moss is the posterchild for short model because many models like Heidi, Kate, Latitia Casta, Selitia Ebanks etc. are also smaller.
J.lee said on 4/Aug/08
I don't mean to cause kaos but anyone in there right minds can tell that tyra is more than an inch taller in that video. A bare minimum of 2.5 inches which would make heidi 5 foot 7.5 if lucky
J.lee said on 4/Aug/08
well all i can say is you have to watch the you tube video with tyra banks. tyra is way way way taller then heidi, not just an inch. they wear the same heels. someone please watch and give feedback. scroll down to the lucy comment and click the video. the video speaks for itself. there is no way the camera or whatever can fluctuate 4 inches. just look at it. Rob, whats your opinion on the video? either tyra is really taller than her listed height or heidi is not taller than five seven.
Grabriella said on 2/Aug/08
I'm a model (@ 5'10 1/2) I can garuntee you that, I can't say that I've personally met the VS models except for alessandra & miranda.But at one show I went to Miranda was there & so was Paris Hilton (I know..) Paris isnt even that tall only 5'7. Now Paris I've heard is a sweetheart but not to other models, she acts sorta snooty, like shes better then the rest, the main one, she always has to have the best dress, she got to pick any dress she wanted even though she was super late & chose Mirandas pink dress that she already had on & they let her, I could tell Miranda wanted to strangle her. She always brings fries backstage like shes saying to us "look I have fries I know you want them but you can't" it's not like we dont eat fries we're just not gonna bring them backstage we're too busy caring & getting ready not slacking off. Alessandra is not too tall, less then what they say since I didnt use my measuring tape (lol) i couldnt find her exact height but I can say she's 5'8, VS models usually wear 5 inchers anyways. Yes, agencies do lie about models height if they're too short, or too tall e.t.c, I'm a legit 5'10 1/2, when I first came into the buisness @ 16 they told me "we're going to round you down to 5'9" I said don't because I'm positive I'm not gonnna grow anymore & if I saw one tiny change in my height I'd take short pills, so it took them a while but they agreed. Miranda on the other hand is just a tad shorter then Ale @ 5'7 1/2. It's not fair, male models only have to be 2-3 inches taller then the average male while female models have to be 5-6 inches taller then the average girl, but not if you have 5 inch heels ;).
joe said on 30/Jul/08
I agree that she is about 5 feet 7....do you think she is compensating for something by wearing 5-6 inch heels on every TV appearance she makes (she eveb told Regis that she was wearing 5 inch heels that are very hard to walk in)
Maria said on 22/Jul/08
i have seen heidi listed as 1.71!!!!!!! and no way she is above that!
anonymous said on 24/Jun/08
i think hedi klum is 5'8 or 5'8 1/2 because i have compared her nexto to other mdels like with alessandra and adriana and she is a couple inches shorter than they are.and selita ebanks is not 5'8 she is short she is only 5'6-5'7 she is so petite. i have compared her to other models in in pictures and at vicotria's secret fashion show i compaerd her with karolina kurkova and julia stegner they are both 5'11 and i saw that selita is alittle bit over there shoulders.miranda kerr,izabel goulart,inguna butane,and andi muise are like 5'9.the rest like adriana,giselle,alessandra,and natasha poly are 5'10-5'10 1/2.caroline trentini isn't 5'11 she looks about 5'10 to me.some models are above or at six feet like tiiu kuik,hana soukupova,ana beatriz barros,elle mcpherson,and oluchi onweagba
