It's nice to see that Tyra Banks is height honest!
Warren said on 15/Jun/18
I've seen that bunch of people at any other place say actually met or saw celebrities and still shows no proof with a picture..
Canson said on 9/Jun/18
@Johno and Garrett: a flat 5’9” looks low for her. She is taller than Naomi Campbell In most pics together. I could buy it only if Campbell is also overlisted. I could buy something like 5’9.5 at a low however as the difference between them at times is minimal and Campbell is older than Banks meaning more likely to have lost height. Not to mention, we can’t determine heel heights from most pics.
Canson said on 9/Jun/18
She could also be right in between the two 5’9 and 5’10. I wouldn’t have thought that she was only a solid 5’9”. Like Rob said, she often does give off a 5’10” impression but there are occasions when she looks 5’9” next to Will Smith when she appeared on Fresh Prince. Her saying 5’9” in the video could be what Mimi said below, her trying to rhyme, but there could be some truth to it, on the other hand
Mimi said on 31/May/18
Maybe she said 5ft9 because it rhymed better than 5ft10?
Yasmina said on 27/May/18
I met her 1 month ago in my hotel in Santa Monica, I'm 5ft9.25 and she was easily 1.5 , 2 inches taller than me she was in flat sneakers so she is easily 5ft10.5 maybe a weak 5ft11 and a really voluptuous, curvy and proportionate body... By the way she was makeup free and has a phenomenal structure face and smooth beautiful skin...
Johno said on 19/Apr/18
She said she was 5'9 on that Youtube interview hotwing eating show.
Garrett188 said on 19/Apr/18
In this most recent Hot Ones interview she states "I'm 5 foot 9" (at 22:40).

I'm not sure why should would claim that so ecstatically if she was actually 5'10. Seems that almost everyone has been overestimating her this whole time, me included.

I'd be surprised if she was only a 5 foot 9er, she always looked taller.

Does anybody know what is Tyra Banks' real shoe size? Is some sites it says that is 9 US and in others 11 or even 12...
Don Julio said on 13/Jan/18
I can definitely believe Tyra being 179 cm
sheilla said on 21/Nov/17
Legit 5'10'' she is the model more tall of old angels, she only is less than Kurkova
MaryAnne said on 14/Nov/17
Taller than Naomi by one inch. Genuine.
Subwoof said on 29/Oct/17
Legitimate 5'10.
Junior said on 14/Oct/17
I see Tyra listed as high as 5'10.5" and mostly 5'10 and i wonder she could be 5'10.25" tops.
Nona said on 28/Sep/17
Tyra does not lie either about her height or weight. She says she 5'10" tall and weighs 170 lbs and that is all true
Nik said on 28/Sep/17
I think that 5'10" for Tyra is a fair cop! She is no taller though!
Marylin said on 27/Sep/17
Tyra is the only model that seems to be a perfect 5'10 ". In photos she is bigger than all others who say to have 5'11" concert. If it has 5'9.5 "only the other models would not exceed 5'7". because the difference is gigantic.
Marilyn said on 21/Sep/17
Obvious that Tyra has 5'10". Are you Crazy? She is more tall than many models that say to be biggest than Her.
wubablubadubdub said on 29/Aug/17
Haha thats kind of funny Rob, the guy in that photo claims 6'3.
Editor Rob: it's an optimistic claim, for sure!
wubablubadubdub said on 27/Aug/17
Rob, How tall do you think she is in these heels? And the height of the man next to her?

P.S., you notice how her legs also seem to be a good bit apart and how he's doing the one foot trick.

Click Here
Editor Rob: they could be near 3 inch boots, so you'd expect her to be 6ft 1 in them, although probably standing no more than 6ft there.
Cameron said on 22/Aug/17
On Americas got Talent she seems to tower over virtually everyone (even guys) in what appear to be 4" or 5" heels. I could see a legit strong 5'10". Pretty tall woman.
JAMES GORDON said on 30/Jul/17
I would say Will Smith's eyes were looking at her top of her head, making her about 5'10 if Will really is about 6'1. I'd say he's 6'0 now!
even said on 24/Jul/17
she said she's 5'10" , turns out she really is a legit 5'10" .

In this video with heels she can make a guy whose 6'0-6'1 look average...I think she's hot!!!
Her green eyes and her tall frame...so gorgeous...

Is she really 5'10 :scratching my head:
Click Here No heels,next to Will Smith at his peak height.
Gem said on 30/Jun/17
If Tyra Banks is 5' 10" everyone else to appear on AGT is a midget. She is probably 6' 4".
Ky said on 23/Apr/17
I watched an old interveiw of her on YouTube and they had described her at 5'11.
Allie said on 5/Feb/17
@J.Lee it was a VSFS back in the early 2000s or late 1990s. It listed Tyra's height as 5'9.
Anonymous said on 10/Dec/16
Rob do you think Tyra could be 1.79? Or is she already in the stage of loss of height?
Editor Rob: she might not have lost more than a nickle's width of height.
J.Lee said on 2/Aug/16
Allie, which episode?
Allie said on 1/Aug/16
Yep I just heard Tyra claim 5'9 on her show. Will have to find the video though.
Rebelka said on 30/Jul/16
Tyra Banks is a legitimate 1.78 ! The funny thing is that Tyra is larger than many models listed have 1.78 and even 1.80 as it can kkkkks .

Tayra with girls from American's nex top model, Mame & Lacey from cycle 22, both girls are 5.8, Raina cycle 14 her height is 5.9, and laura cycle 18 her height is 5.10? she is looks 5.9 and not taller then that
Lee said on 17/Oct/15
Why are all these little 10-12 year old girls saying they are nearly six foot tall. I highly doubt any are over five foot. Anyway tyra looks 5'10 to me and can look 6'2 in a nice pair of platforms
Allie said on 10/Oct/15
Hm, oddly enough, in the 2001 VSFS, Tyra was interviewed and they put her height down as 5'9. Then said that she's 26 years old. But they gave Mark's future wife Rhea Durham, the height of 5'11 despite being listed as 5'9 now.

she is 177-178cm , over 5.10
M said on 10/Aug/15
I would say she is 1.75m (Kurkova is 1.77m max, comaparing to Toni Garrn who is rue 6' or 1.83m), but because she has very strong bones it gives expression like she is taller then this.
J.Lee said on 1/Aug/15
Rob, could you see Tyra being 5 ft 10.25? I don't see how she's an inch shorter than Rebecca. Also, Allie says 5 ft 10.5 max
Allie said on 21/Jul/15
@J.Lee - she does, but tbh, I don't think Rebecca R is the full 5'11 she claims. I'd say that Tyra max is 5'10.5 or 5'10.25. In identical heels and near identical pose, she looked less or around an inch shorter than 5'11 KK. So yeah.
J.Lee said on 16/Jul/15

We don't care how tall you all are stop lying y'all no y'all not that tall. This is about Tyra's height.
Skye said on 23/Apr/15
Spot on. She was still taller than Blake Lively in GG and looked taller than Klum even in I believe it was sneakers on so I guess anything under 5'9 is out of the question.
Jewel said on 29/Dec/14
saw her on an episode of life in the fab lane with Kimora Lee who was bare feet and tyra in a relaxed jeans and t with flat shoes. they looked very very close in height. so yes maybe Tyra is about 5.11 out of bed.


And for Wendy not too sure. Maybe 5.11 was in her prime.
Tyler said on 29/Dec/14
I'm a very tall person, but I am also somewhat short. I'm 5 feet, nine and a half inches tall, 130 kilos, medium build, skinny muscles, I can do about 28 pushups when I'm not dehydrated, but I take in about 300 calories every 4 hours and I drink too much soda. I'm typically shorter than a lot of actresses but not by a whole lot. I doubt anyone would notice a difference in height between me and Banks if she took off her shoes and stood back-to-back against me... Just saying
J.Lee said on 10/Dec/14
Rob can you make a height listing for Wendy Williams? She's supposed to be very tall
[Editor Rob: she claims 5ft 11 although I'm not sure she's quite that tall.]

Tyra could be between 178-179cm. Maybe 180cm out of bed. Also, she is very attractive, better than those skinny, shapeless models now.

5 ft 10.25 possible or is 5 ft 10 more likely?

To all girls here complaining about being too tall, let me tell you the following:if you are really between 5'7 and 6' like most of you said,FIRST you will always find men taller than you almost everywhere, it's only if you are 6'3+ that you may be too tall for many persons, SECOND, a genuine man wouldn't care if he's several inches shorter or taller than you and neither should you,THIRD please let's speak about Tyra's height not yours.
Rob,is there a chance for 5'10.25?I think she's rounding down a little.
Natasha said on 2/Feb/14
This is about Tyra's height. We really don't care how tall you guys are. Irrelevant!

I've only just turned 14 and I'm 6ft. I am in year 9 and the tallest girl in the whole of my school including teachers, just like you. Yeah, that's my shoe size aswell:3, you're lucky if you get complimented because all I ever got was bullied but, still remember you are beautiful. And I bet you could be a model when you are older!

she's tall enough to be beautiful but short enough to kind..

SAK said on 7/Aug/13
Stop talking about height, this tyras page.

Tyra on antm has many times said she is 5f10. On occasions will take off her shoes to do a comparison when she a contestant is lying about there height.
Yasemin said on 29/Jul/13
I'm 14 and 5'11. I love looking up to really tall girls because they are all so beautiful. It's sooooo hard to find shoes my size because I'm size 41. Since I live I'm Asia, pretty much every girl I know is 5'6 or shorter and I'm the tallest girl in my high school. It also sucks that there are only about 3 guys taller than me in the whole school. But I still love being tall and all of the compliments :D I really badly want to be a model when I grow up
Cool dude said on 18/Jun/13
everybody stop lying about your height i know not all of you just happen to be 12 or 15 and 5'10 so just stop yall are not that tall so get back on topic on tyra banks height not your height we don't care how tall you all are

@Nikki maybe you'll stop growing cos you may be at the end of puberty. It's completely possible if you are that tall at your age and many girls start puberty very early and finish very early.
Nikki said on 27/Feb/13
I'm 13 and I'm 5'8 and a quarter. Have been for a while now. At times I do hate my height, but I try to see the good sides in it. Like looking better in shorts and different kinds of pants because it shows off your legs(: I look at Tyra as an inspiration and she shows me not to be afraid of my height and to embrace it.
Tee said on 27/Jan/13
Im 12 and im 5"7/8
My friends are smaller than me but id love to become a model someday id try to push on a bit more to 5"10!
SAK said on 13/Jan/13
Tyra has referenced her height quite a few times on Americas next top model. And uses herself as comparison when she feels a candidate is lying about her height. She always says 5f10/178cm.
barney said on 22/Oct/12
count yourself lucky maddie at twelve i was 5ft8! being tall is the best thing to ever happen to me! I love tyra and she embraces her height and so should you!
Maddie said on 20/Oct/12
so I am almost 12 and just shy of 5'5 D: I absolutely HATE being tall because its so hard to gain weight anyway. I weight like 100 pounds and that's well pretty thin for my height. Im taller than everyone in my grade and its not easy. I hate towering over people's greesy hair and dandruff -.- I hate all the remarks about it, too. Im taller than one teacher (shes pretty short though) teachers treats me like their friend. its not easy being tall especially when you're a kid I don't know why anybody would want to be tall, I hate it :(
Citation said on 4/Oct/12
People here need to stop being so narcissistic and get back on topic about Tyra's height. I just adore Tyra's body and proportions in the photo above, she's curvy yet lean. Tyra's height is just perfect for a fashion model's. 5'10 is always the best height to be at in the fashion world.
katalina said on 27/Sep/12
Im 15 and im rail thin and im 6 foot. Thats crazy!!! And its weired because my body is short but my legs are extra longgggggg.
barney said on 17/Sep/12
I've always been tall for my age and I love it, I was heads taller than everyone, i've always been curvy but I want to loose weight, i'm only 14 and I'm cms of 6ft everyone says I should model becuase I could have a slightly curvier body than tyra and i love her! but is it too soon to try to lose weight to be a model? adn is it true about needing small boobs i have average i guess lol i'm mixed race (black and white) and a little lighter than tyra with brown eyes and black hair I would love to be a model!

Last time I checked I was 5 ft 8... I think I'm 5 ft 9 now... And I'm 15 ! Everybody keeps telling me how tall I am and I hate it ! & They say that I should be a super model... especially that I have a body like Tyra's here... But I don't want to ! Even My sister who's way older than me got an offer to be a super model when she was 22 ( she was in Paris ) . But she refused , she took it as a compliment though... Now , I'm just as tall as her... probably taller ! :'(

Everybody here is talikng about their heigh so I'll leave mine. I hate it, because when I was little everybody said I would be like 5'8 or more and now I'm 16 and I'm 5'3 or LESS... I'm not snob or whatever, but I know I have a beautiful face and normal proporcions on my body, but my heigh just doesn't help ugh... By the way, I think Tyra is 5'9 tall (and she is actually gorgeous which is not a big new xD )(:
Sara said on 12/Feb/12
I'm 5'4 I think xD (1,61 m) and when I was toung everybody thought I would grow a lot, but now I'm 16 and they say I'm small xD omg :c
If a petit model is a 5'7 tall so I'm a petit petit petit girl xD
I'd love to be taller, but not taller as my boyfriend xDDD

Bethhh said on 30/Jan/12
i'm 13 and i'm 5'8". at the moment im not sure whether I like my height because most of my friends are smaller than me and all the boys in my year are smaller than me too. about 2 of my friends are the same height as me and i feel that some of the boys may be catching up to my height. my mum says i probably will grow to about 5'11" which will be a great height!:)

jay. thanks you make me feel so much better but still no matter what i want to be a model. thanks so much though.. self esteem boosted :)
Jayy said on 28/Dec/11
heheheh since everyone is talking about their height i will, too (:
to amyy - im 5 ft 2, too (: and asian . don't worry you'll grow tall. you're just a late grower (: dont worry about it
so yeah im 5 ft 2 and ive been barely growing. i think in a year im starting to only grow 1 or 2 cm . i used to cry and be depressed about it. I wanted to eat pills, get hormone shots, do ANYTHING to be tall.
now - i got mature. got older. most of my tiny height goes to my legs. so i have regular sized legs that wear regular sized jeans. my torso is short but i actually like it cause i get to wear crop top that fit perfectly like shirts, and who knew perfect sized crop tops would look good? im an hourglass figure and guess what? i am glad im not tall like my other tall friends! i know tat by the time im an adult, i will have definitely reached 5 ft 4. my mom is 5 5 and my dad is 5 8. im glad im short and soon to be average because i wear heels and not look freakish, im considered skinny, i can wear any clothes i want and look great. so i stopped caring about my height
all though i AM always going to be jealous of models because they get their own makeup artists. but to be honest, who wants to get addicted to makeup? its like poison and ruins your skin if you use it for years.
amy. said on 28/Dec/11
i love how tyra is so tall and can show her self off without losing the confidence. it does however make me quite sad cos im 13,5"2 and apparently im perfect model material if i weren't so short. worst part is that my whole family is quite tall considering we're asian. if my 5 year old sister continues growing at her rate she'll be taller than me by the time she's 8.dream crushed :(
Al said on 27/Dec/11
I saw Tyra at the grove a few years ago and she looked like she was about 6' to 6'1". I think she says she 5'10" cause she doesn't want to be considered a large lady but she is very tall.
Anna said on 25/Dec/11
Wtf? I would LOVE to be 5'9 - 5'11. I'm 15 and 5'2 and believe me it SUX because most girls here are 5,5 and up.

im 14 and 5"3 which is very short and ugly...so when people complain about being tall it makes me mad because i wish i was tall and beautiful, and i dont think i will grow anymore. so be glad your tall.
truth said on 14/Nov/11
now now...I think shes 5ft9 max...evening height of course..she scrapes 5ft10 in the morning...but thats very tall for a woman nontheless.
SAK said on 12/Nov/11
Why is no one actually talking about Tyra.

If you girls wanna talk about your own height, then go to general height page.

But I will say that if you are tall girl, there is nothing wrong with that, its a
can easily be seen as an advantage and look desirable. The same cannot be said for short guys who just look plain bad, and desirable unless there rich or famous.

Anyways, back to Tyra, firstly she is fit and has a great body. She can often be seen as 5ft11, because she wears huge heels and is kinda big, so has a big presence. But Tyra herself has said shes 5ft10 on many occasions, which is v.honest, which cannot be said for majority of celebs in regards to there height.
Robia said on 26/Oct/11
5"10, 15, most firends are 5'6 and under..... its alright being tall but sometimes you just wanna be small so that you can hide from stuff.

Zoë said on 19/Oct/11
why can't you weare heels if you're 5'10"? I am 5'10" and I always wear my heels. I just love it. yes I am taller then the rest of the school but it's oke. at first everybody was like: why are you wearing heels? you are already tall? but I was like: yeah that's true but I just love it. and tall people can also wear heels. now everybody thinks it is cool. and it makes you look sexy :) so girls don't doub about it just wear that heels :) (btw I am 16)

I wouldnt know because im not them..thats just what i think. im 14 and i am 5'8...it sucks because im extremely skinny (112 lbs) and every boy in my school is shorter than me...also i like to wear heels but i cant in school because everyone will laugh at me!!!! though whenerver i feel upset i think of tyra and how she is 5'10 and still rocks her heels!!!!
johno said on 7/Oct/11
- Whats with the stating heights? Is it some sort of joke?
Shannon said on 5/Oct/11
I'm 13 and Im 5'11, when I grew tall I got quite surprised because it didnt run through my family all my family are basically all small. Anyway I started first year 2 years ago. I got teased a lot about my height I got called 'Green Giant' but there's two guys in my class so I didn't feel as lonely and tall there 13 and there 6'4 and there both good looking guys. So I wish and I will personally try to lose a lot of weight and become slim enough to become a model and look back at the people on high school and stuff it in there faces and say '**** you mother ****ers' and they would be so jealous and me and Mackenzie will live happily ever after(:!

Wide not tall said on 4/Sep/11
If you girls are the heights you are claiming, which I doubt, then show us a pic.
Wide not tall said on 4/Sep/11
Tanisha, are you really 5'11, if so, show us a pic. If you are, then it is very likely due to hormone ladened foods. Animals are given a steroid type hormone to get fattened before they are butchered, and its also causing some people to grow fast and it will cause problems later on.
Tanisha said on 3/Sep/11
I'm Tanisha, 14 years old and I'm 5'11. I really don't like being tall it is horrible, and because no one is really tall in my family(well my mum isn't, or my dad or grandparents). So I went to the hospital about it and they took sone blood tests and stuff and they said there was not a reason I'm tall, I just am, but they said I've probably reached my height limit. I really hope I have because I don't want to grow any more:(
Megan said on 3/Sep/11
Hi, Im 12 about to be 13, and im 5'9 and a bit, my legs are probably the longest part on my body, im in my secondyear of highschool now, but in my first year i absolutle hated my height, id hate seeing pictures of me with my friends, always because i wud be the 1 who towers over everybody because i was always about 5ft taller than everybody, i also look about 4 years older than everybody else. But now, im absolutley l0ving my height, i dont care if i tower over everybody, i guess its an advantage in some ways, and a disadvantage in another, BUT all of u girls who r so tall that you stand out, dontbe ashamedof it, trust me, its brilliant, and who knows, some of us might even end up being models when we are older, we just have to wait for the right time ;) <3

I'm 11 and 5 ft 7 and at first I hated being tall but I learned to embrace my height you just have to love who you are tall or short because everyone is beautiful And think about this way if ur tall you stand out of the crowd instead of blending in I love myself and my height.

Ally said on 24/Aug/11
Hi. I'm 12 years old and I am 5.11 feet tall. I get made fun of a lot, but I learned how to shut them up and how to love my height. all my friends are 5.2 at average. sometimes I feel like I don't fit in, but sometimes not fitting in is a good thing. isnt it? I learned to love being this tall just this year. my whole life has been very difficult before and thank god that's over.

kyra said on 12/Aug/11
Shruti dont feel self concious about your height im 5'9" and people always stare at me especially when i wear heels and after i put them on im almost 6'1" the way that i get through it is by pretending like im a model and that makes me feel less shy and a lot more glamorous

hi ,i am from INDIA an i am 19 , and my height is 5 f.9inch. and i really love carring heals but i cant b'coz of my height. actually i feel a bit embarresed as the people keep staring me, and start chating about my height.
Daphne said on 8/Aug/11
I see that you have different opinions about your height. Rosie, I am 13-14 and I am 5'4" and believe me all my friends are shorter than me, except the one who is a 14 years old girl and she is 6'2" !!! But I am also afraid of wearing high heels because they can make me look weird. Lucy you can be 5'10" because as my pedetrician said to me, I will be 5'7 1/2" by the height of 5'4" that I am now at the age of 14. Don't worry. ;)
Lucy said on 7/Aug/11
well, right now i just turned 12 and a half, and am currently 5'7". I really want to be 5' 10"...... is this still a possible reality for me , or should i just give up on it?
Katie said on 30/Jul/11
I'm 16, and I'm 5'11 & a half. Which is very tall for my age, and I am very self conscious about it. I just hope I don't get taller :/
Anon said on 27/Jul/11
GIRLS: If you are tall and self conscious about it, you might as well STOP caring about what people think of you right now. You can't control how tall you are/how tall you will be, so learn to love it. I'm 19, 6 ft, and I love wearing heels when I go out. People may give you **** for it (story of my life?) but just throw them the finger :)
SAK said on 17/Jul/11
How about talking about Tyra's height as well

she used her height(5ft10) to measure girls who say they are taller then they actually are on ANTM

If you want to wear high heels, rock it. Some of the most beautiful women in the world are over 6'. My best friend is 5'11" and she rocks 4" heels daily. Don't be afraid to look fierce.
alex said on 31/May/11
im 15 and i am 5'11 and it somtimes freaks me out cause im starting to think mabye i should start wearing heals but then i think wow i already get compared to my friend everyday about my height why make it an even bigger probblem??? so should i wear heals???? (i think yes and i think no)...ahhhh what should i do?!?!?!?
SAK said on 22/May/11
Y all the posts here talking about how they tall they are, isn't this Tyra's page.

Sometimes it does seem Tyra mightbe close to 5ft11, however it's probably because she wears pretty high heels all the time.
Rose said on 16/May/11
I am 13 and I'm 5'3. I'm okay with my height 'cause that doesn't make me look shorter than my friends. But I'm afraid to wear heels infront of them 'cause I think they will make me look taller than others and maybe taller than my crush. Which'll be weird . Someone help me! What should I do?

I am 12 and i am 5'10 or 5'10 and a half! whenever i tell people i am 12 they are always surprised because they think i am way older. personally i dont really like being tall i wish i was like 5'6 and when i grow up i wanted to be like 5'8. its really annoying though because i am taller than most people in my grade and even most adults! it really gets to me because whenever im around people im always comparing their heights.
Emma said on 9/Apr/11
Tyra is 5'10/178 cm.
I'm 177 cm (5'9 ½). I've always been tall and always disliked it, but now I'm getting more comfortable with my height. But I went to my school nurse here the other day and we looked at a protocol and apperently I grew from 5'2 ½ to 5'9 within 2 years!! If u ask me that's just crazy haha. But to the point. It's just feels like I keep growing taller and taller and I don't want to be taller then I'm already am, because it feels like I'm going to be taller then every guy in the whole entire woorld!!! (-overdrifting just a liiiittle bit but yeah..) I wanna be like 5'9 :/
Kiwi said on 9/Apr/11

SAK said on 28/Mar/11
The photo of Tyra with the Kardashians, just goes to show how tall she really, 5ft10 for a female is very tall, equivalent to a 6ft3/4 male.
john said on 15/Mar/11
rob, how could she be only 5'10 in this picture. Click Here how tall do you think khloe kardashian is, she looks way over that and they are all wearing the same heels(in the show video)??

[Editor Rob: I think she's the height she claims, but maybe the taller Kardashian isn't quite the height she claims?]

im a walking giant my friends look up to me people think im over 15 im only 12 & im 5'11 im turning 13 on may by then i should be 13 & 6'0 tall.

Tyra is 5'10. I am 5'7 and just turning 15 tomorrow. I love being tall! I am taller than my 17 year old boyfriend. (:
SAK said on 23/Feb/11
She has said many times on Americas next top model that she is 5ft10, but she could easily be 5ft9.5 due usual rounding up, but I would not be surprised if she is a solid 5ft10/178cm.
natasha said on 3/Jan/11
She is something of 5'9.5" to be accurate...coz in her biography it was mentioned that she grew upto 5'9" at age 15...after that i don't think she could grow very tall...coz she was more keen on gaining weight after that..
So weird..
Anyway..I have noticed one thing..she is tall thats why her legs look that long..
I personally feel...her legs are "leggy" for 5'7" or 5'8" at max..not for 5'10"..
anyway..I LOVVVVVEEEEE Tyra..
She is my role model
Fred said on 26/Dec/10
im 7.0.. and my girlfriend is 6.1 so, its really nice that she is that tall =)
Matthieus said on 12/Nov/10
Yeah, Im pretty sure Tyra is in between 5'9'' and 5'10''. I think she's mentioned her height quite a few times and she reached her full height early on. I would've thought it's harder to lie about your height when you're a supermodel like Tyra as models surely have measurements for bookings, etc. However, I know agencies will sometimes add an inch or two in writing for a model's benefit. Or so I've read.
I think it's refreshing Tyra embraces her height and doesn't pretend to be shorter.
Amanda said on 2/Jul/09
I'm 5'9 and I wear high heels all the time.
Ben said on 30/Jun/09
she is 5'10 because she is a model and on her show ANTM Cycle 2 she said that she was 5'9 by the age around 14-15
Sandy said on 14/Jun/09
she is 5'10. heels or not.

I heard her say on her show that she was 5'10, bear in mind though that she's almost always wearing high heels :)
Amanda Taylor said on 7/Jun/09
I always thought Tyra was about 6' but I suppose she could be 5'10". I went to the doctor's recently and was 5'9" with tennis shoes on . . . ugghh. It's nice being tall sometimes, but I still get insecure about it and don't want to wear heels.
the real og said on 18/May/09
height has nothing to do with how attractive you are. this is especially true for women. its more about the shape your in than the height. i've seen this 5 foot tall girl who seems to have long legs for her height because of the nice shape shes in. thick thighs but with skinny ankles. plus she knows how to rock the right outfits to display the work she puts in the gym to get those legs. thats what its about. why you think these female celebs like rosario dawson look really tall? its the work ethic and the style to top it off people. now you know!!!
Julie said on 15/May/09
shes definitely 5'10". when nicole frm ANTM cycle 5 stood next to her, she looked like shes an inch shorter than tyra.(nicole is 5'9")
sam said on 11/May/09
I'm 6'1 and met her on a photo shoot. She's about 2-3 inches shorter then me. So 5'10-5'11.
J.J. said on 16/Apr/09
'Falcon' You are 6'2"(188cm), she is a woman that's extra tall @ the 98 percentile of the W.H.O. Growth charts. That means if she were a man she will be taller than you because she will stand at 193cm(6'4"). So guess who would be taller now, her not you. Same way if you were a woman you would be 173cm & she will be taller at still being 178cm. You will be SHORTER than her if you were a woman. SORRY!!!
Falcon said on 11/Apr/09
is this tall for girls in america? this seems pretty average to me. not saying being tall is better than being short, but 178 cm isn't tall for me. my girlfriend is 178 and I have her at a comfortable distance (10 cm), and I know a lot of girls that are taller than her.
Teresa said on 11/Apr/09
Yeah well although I feel 5'7 5'6 is a nice height for a girl. Tall is goood. Better than short. No effence to any short people, thats JUST my opinion. and Tyra is a Superr Modelll. Being tall is GREAT! On one of her episodes with miley cyrus she was towering over everyone! .. Miley, Her dad, The producer of mileys movie, the hott dude that was in her movie, and emily osment. but then again..she WAS wearing heals
Mimi said on 5/Apr/09
I think all hieghts are beautiful. We're all made in God's image weather you believe it or not. I'm 5'10 and I love my long legs. In fact, most men say they love me for my long legs (and my personallity of course). They're beautiful and I don't have to wear heels to show them off. So props goes to all women who are not ashamed of how they look because of something ignorant somebody says, and props to tall women who are not ashamed to wear hills. AND PROPS TO TYRA BANKS CAUSE SHE LOOKS GREAT AND GETS PAID FOR IT!
John said on 26/Mar/09
On the Tyra Banks show, she was wearing a 3 inch heal and looked an inch taller than robert pattison. Pattison is like 6-0, so she looked 6-1 with 3 inch heal, which makes her 5-10
Blair said on 1/Mar/09
tyra is using all short models for antm this cycle! the audition thing says that any girl over 5'7" should not even bother trying out!
Sandy said on 26/Feb/09
probably because it rhymes. I think she could be 5'9" she is always wearing massive heals. she is either 5'9 or 5'10. Either way she's really tall.
Ludo said on 24/Feb/09
In an episode of Tyra she does this little freestyle rap thing with flava flav and says she's 5'9?!??
J.J. said on 23/Feb/09
yea a 4" heel will give 3" inch in height. But when you visit the YSL websites their heels are listed as 4" heel and thats what it gives exactly cos those inches were got from measuring it from the actual height it gives. nowadays most Christian louboutins gives anything from 2.9"(listed at 10cm), 3.72"(listed at 12cm), 4.51"(listed at 14cm), and the extra tall ones which they make only a few of them are the ones that give 5.3"(listed at 16cm). So basically most of the women you see wearing very high heels gets 4.51" in height. And the extra tall ones gives 5.3"(you could never get anything more than this). If Tyra wears the very high ones she will be standing at 6'2.5". The extra tall ones will make her 6'3.3" & nothing more. So basically Tyra could never reach 6'3.5" no matter how tall the heels are. And to add this I dont think she has ever worn the ones that give 5.3". I think the maximum she usually does is the ones that give 4.51" so if you see Tyra in a big heel she is standing at 6'2"-6'2.5" maximum & nothing more. That explains why she is never the same as any 6'2.5" plus man that comes to her show because HE will wear shoes & stand at 6'3.5" plus. So it has to take a 6'4" man on Tyra's show in order to make her look short(but not too short), which in my opinion you hardly ever see 6'3" plus men unless you go to the basketball court. EVEN THOSE TALL CEO's ON WALL STREET ARE MOSTLY 6'1.5" to 6'2.5" with very few of them at 6'3" plus. DAMN SHE IS HUGE. YOU KNOW WHY? BECAUSE GIRLS THAT ARE EVEN 5'8" HARDLY EVER WEAR HEELS & WITH 5'11" PLUS GIRLS, THEY JUST STAY AWAY FROM HEELS(ONLY VERY VERY RARE OCCASIONS WOULD U MEET A 5'11" WOMAN IN HEELS). ON THE W.H.O. GROWTH CHARTS 5'10" FOR A WOMAN IS THE SAME AS 6'3.75" FOR A MAN (ALMOST 6'4"), AND ON THE 98TH PERCENTILE(MEANING THE CHANCES OF TYRA FINDING ANY WOMAN TALLER THAN HER IS 2%.

Snowboarder303 said on 22/Feb/09
wow Stellar64, models are tall so they stand out and allow the clothing and clothing designers to experiment with a different kind of body type. if a short woman was modeling, its possible that she wouldnt stand out as much as a tall woman. It's all about image.
Vanessa said on 22/Feb/09
she's not huge,some people are just jealous :),and btw I'm 5'10" and 15 so I know what tallness means :))
Camille said on 12/Feb/09
Just 2clear this up the reason Tyra looks so much taller than the ANTM models is because where she stands infront of the table there is a higher step so that's probably why she looked so much taller than Sarah plus high heels, I hope this helps8-)
Sandy said on 5/Feb/09
To everyone that has met Tyra they say 5'10, from what I know that is the only height in the modeling world they don't change for sure..
Jlee said on 4/Feb/09
I just have a feeling that she's five ten and a half. cuz how can she be taller than stacy even with heels? she is lets a half inch shorter than stacy. that would make her five ten and a half. did tyra say she is 6 foot ever??? if so someone please show me
Stellar64 said on 19/Jan/09
Maya... it's thinking like that... models are supposed to be tall, it's what the fashion world demands... and all those other stereotypes... that are the problem with nine tenths of people in the world, who are all fixated on the surface of people, with no consideration given to the INSIDE of the person, or what lies beneath that surface. A person's surface has nothing to do with how capable or incapable they are. To hell with the fashion world's demands! They're the ones responsible for young girls and even grown women who never seem to be satisfied with their own bodies, no matter what they do to them, for feeling the way they feel. If a fashion company came along that just said to hell with hiring these conveyer belt standard models, and focused instead on the "whole package", inside and out... the models they used just ordinary, everyday women, from 4'10" on up to 6'2", and everywhere in between... such a fashion company could blow a big hole in the whole fashion industry. Not shut it down, no, but blow a major hole in it, yes. I believe the everyday woman, the average woman or girl, would absolutely fall in love with such a company... who promoted acceptance of oneself, while looking good at the same time. But like so many things, I doubt anyone will ever have the guts to even give it a try. You mentioned doctors not having shaky hands. I've seen such doctors all the way from around 5 ft. on up to somewhere over 6 ft., and their height doesn't make or break them as a doctor, so why should it make or break a model? All this is, is that the FIRST models were tall women, and some bunch of people in the in the industry just stuck with that because they thought it looked better, or added some mystique or rarity. But just because any given thing STARTS a certain way doesn't mean it can't be any different. The fashion industry doesn't seem to want to change, which is why I suggested a new fashions company enter the market and do so. What would be wrong with at least some of the models being employees of the company, the actual people who help make the fashions? That's getting double the bang for your employee investment.

To dak

My boyfriend is about 5'11 and I'm 5'9, when i wear 4 inch heels we're about the same height, beacuse he's wearing shoes to, and it's not a problem.
btw, i think Tyra is about 5'11!
dak said on 16/Jan/09
I'm a guy, 5'11.5, but would rather date a girl under 5'8. I don't think any guy wants to be shorter than his girlfriend when she's wearing heels.

sorry ashley but you as a girl and almost 17, ur most likely done growing. You would be lucky to get 1/2inch.
Fan said on 12/Jan/09
It takes about a 5 second internet search to see that the average height for a women is 5'4 and for a man 5'8. yes, it does very from country to country but the biggest difference is Brazil, the average height for a women is 5'3" to some of the Northern European countries where the average is 5'6 for a women.
Mechelle said on 12/Jan/09
Im lady and im 5'10(yes im tall i know) and i do believe the average height for a woman is about 5'5-5'6, men 5'9-5'10. I have no problem with my height growing up i did. Tyra is an ok height to be a model. She is 5'10 which she stated on her show "The tyra banks show". I notice a male who made a comment that he doesnt like tall women and im guessing its becuase your intimidated by there height. After all you would look odd your about 5'8 and your gf is 6'0. thats why i dont look at short men i only date tall men. I've never had a problem finding men my height. People just learn to love yourself
ray said on 5/Jan/09
she has said 5'8",5'9", and 5'10", so I would say in between those, but probably 5'9"
sarah said on 3/Jan/09
holly, viper, jen and all of you, average in sweden is 5'6 for women and 6' for men, but i think their going to raise it cause most girls these days are taller than 5'6.

I love Tyra she's so funny and I love Americas next top model. I would love to be 5'10'' but I'm like 5'5' so I could still grow 1-3 inches, but I think 1-2 is most probable. She's a good height. There was this girl once who I swear was 6'2'' at least. She was kind slunchng too! I was like WOW! I'm currently 16 and will be 17 in Febuary 14, so I still got a few more years to grow. Have a happy new year! :)

jennnnn get a new doctor. Avg height for males is not 5'11" that is the tall side of the average range. (5'7" to 5'11") 5'9" is still avg height in US.
Anonymous said on 3/Dec/08
Tyra is gorgeous, I love her. yes, I think that the average height for a male is 5'9-10 because I am a girl at 5'9 and I feel most males are the same as me or a little bit taller.

You're not really short at 5-3. Thats just an inch under average. Most females I see seem to be from 5-2-5-3.
Holly said on 1/Dec/08
I wouln't say the majority of men is 5'7 to 5'11.. I'm really short, just 5'3 and i think that you're short if you are a guy who's 5

Tyra is hot and perfect size for a model. But for everyday life perfect size for woman is probably 5'6". Tall side of average for a woman and in heels tall, but not to tall where some men get turned off. Not that 6' and taller women are not hot, but just like many women prefer a man who is taller than them in their heels, most men prefer a woman who is a little shorter than them. Since majority of men fall in the range of 5'7" to 5'11" women over 6' start rulling out potential mates.

The women in the 5'4" to 5'7" range have the largest pick of potential male suiters. Remember you see many more tall men with shorter women than shorter men with taller women.

I always thought Tyra was around six feet tall or so because growing up, she was a lot skinner than she is now. She used to be really scrawny, and now, she's more curvaceous, and I think that makes her look even bigger. But 5'10" seems just right for her. 5'10" isn't that rare a height for a girl, and I know a lot of women around here that are over 5'9".

I agree with what Blair and Flo said, but the only one who's six feet is Ana Beatriz Barros. Karolina Kurkova is 5'10" in flat shoes. I think tall women are VERY sexy!
Blair said on 10/Nov/08
yeah, just tell people your 6'
Blair said on 10/Nov/08
Tyra falls perfectly in the height range for a model at 5'10. anything over 6' is a bit tall for modeling and you probley won't fit the clothes, on the other hand if you have a great face (like a lot of models who are a bit too short) a model with a great face can get a lot of print work.
Hilary said on 2/Nov/08
I'm six foot one and a half, but is that too tall for modelling?
C. said on 2/Nov/08
You can hardly walk in a heel larger than 5". Most of the time Tyra sticks her 4" heels although recently, I've seen her wear lower heels, around the standard heel since she already dwarfs a lot of her guests already. But yeah, she's nowhere near 6' barefoot-- only in heels.

She's probably one of the few models who's consistent in terms of height. Some of the others are obviously exaggerated (it's very apparent when they come on her show and stand next to her).
Bruce said on 18/Oct/08
we all have to consider that Tyra is always in huge heels 4" + so in a 5" heel so at 5'10" she could easily be 6'2" and in a 6" heel she could easily be 6'3"
she is huge and with the help of heels she is stunnigly taller.

no one cares about your personal height (no offense) this website was created to discuss celebs heights, so PLEASE PEOPLE stop talking about your own personal height, ask one of your friends about your height and stick to talking about the famous people lol. :)
person said on 17/Sep/08
if ur a guy can u say how tall you would think girls are the best at thank you and tyra is is a great role model and i love both her shows but i think shed be 6'0 btw im only 5'3 or 5'4 idk :(
flo said on 14/Sep/08
Someone posted this under Gisele's height and I think it is as accurate as you can get. The only one I don't agree with is Ale listed at 5'8 I think she is more like 5'7 to 5'7.5.

Alessandra Ambrosio: 5'8 (according to VS: 5'10)
Miranda Kerr: 5'7 1/2 (according to VS: 5'9)
TYRAA BANKS: 5'10 (According to her: 5'9)
Adriana Lima: 5'9 1/2 (According to VS: 5'10)
Gisele Bundchen: 5'9-5'9 1/2 (According to VS: 5'10)
Selita Ebanks: 5'5-5'6 (according to VS: 5'7-5'8)
Izabel Goulart: 5'8 1/2 (according to VS: 5'10)
Marissa Miller: 5'5-5'6 (According to VS: 5'8)
Karolina Kurkovia: 5'11-6'0 (According to VS: 5'10-5'11)
Ana Beatriz Barros: 5'10-5'11 (According to VS: 5'10)
Heidi Klum: 5'7-5'8 (According to VS: 5'9)
Jessie said on 14/Sep/08
totally agree m8, I believe Tyra is telling the truth about her height and by the time you compare her with the rest of the models the shortest ones are Marisa Miller and Selita Ebanks at 5'5-5'6. If you believe Alessandra is 171 then marissa is like 165. It's crazy how they are models at that height. I know neither Selita or Marissa had big succesful runway careers so I guess really you can be a bit shorter and still model it's just that if everyone kneww that agencies would be swamped with girls trying to be models.
m8 said on 2/Sep/08
yes i believe so that tyra is tall, 1.78, but the gisele usually appears shorter, then adriana shorter than gisele, allesandra even more... so my question is how tall are the rest of the models???? it seems like if tyra is 1.78 then gisele is around 1.75, adriana around 1.73 and alessandra 1.70-1.71...
Jessie said on 30/Aug/08
I believe she is telling the truth. I just saw Paulina Poriskova (5'10.5) on her show and tyra appeares about a half an inch shorter. However Tyra was a vs model an I know those girls need to be mostly leg so purhaps she has a smaller torso and when sitting down she looks a bit smaller. I must say that whenever I compare her height to other models heights it seems like she is telling the truth. It just surprises me because I think this is the first model that I have come across that hasn't lied about her height. (rare in the industry it seems)
sp said on 21/Aug/08
just saw tyra in an nyc restaurant!! im 6'2" she was in heels and my hight maybe a little taller!

P.S. Even hotter in person!! ;) lol
Anna said on 17/Aug/08
Yeah i think 5'10 is about right.Shes very tall.
Emily : ) said on 3/Aug/08
Tyra is a amazing long legs and all. And she is comfortable with herself as she is and that is also wonderful.ha ha
VSFan said on 30/Jul/08
Tyra always states that she's 5'9. but we all know that she's taller than that she's a teeny tad bit taller then Lima who is 5'9-5'10 max. So tyra is definatley 5'10 maybe 5'10 1/2. And if Tyra is really 5'9 than how come it says Ambrosio is 5'10 when clearly you can tell Ale is shorter than her by 1 1/2-2 inches.
jay said on 28/Jul/08
@chris: huge lollercoaster!
how is 5'10 freakish tall? OMG. thats like the perfect height for a female..
i guess youre just jealous cuz youre 5'6 or somethin. hahaha
Chris said on 18/Jul/08
Tyra is nice,but she is like a freak at this height.Its ridiculous how long her legs are^^
Dans said on 10/Jul/08
Girls, girls, girls. Tyra is beautiful and she is not freakishly tall. She is a perfect size for modelling, she is tall enough to look hot in clothing and pull them off and she also has added extras to put into the clothes BOOBIES, she has a human body unlike such models as Gemma Ward and Kate Moss. Who cares about her height? If you want controversy look at her size, she actually has a body a very unusual thing for a model. Use Tyra as a realistic model to aspire to just like most Victoria Secret models. Look at the recent winner of Australia
beauty said on 4/Jul/08
i really think that she is 5'9-5'10, but it does not really matter caus she is beautiful, i dont get why height is a problem for boys or girl. God created us and we have to accept ourself the way we are. we are never satisfied with who we are no matter we are short, average or tall. the most important thing is that if u are a girl or a guy, just find someone who loves u the way u are that's it
Jasmine said on 30/Jun/08
she said on her show that she was 6'
Bruce said on 31/May/08
i still find it hard 2 believe her 5'10" claim b'cos critically looking at her height you colud easily tell she is probably a definite 5'10.5" or even 5'11". i honestly think she just claims 5'10" to just keep it simple. because even when she takes off her heels she still does look taller than a lot of people on her show.
glenn said on 28/May/08
i have to see the video.im not by a computer now.
J.Lee said on 28/May/08
bruce, it is preffered that you have to be five nine, but there are alot that are a little undersized. when i went to vegas to see jubulee, they said they were five ten and alot of them looked five four.
J.Lee said on 28/May/08
runt, the reason why is because when girls are between 5 foot 9 and 5 foot 11, it causes there bodies to look thinner. If they are too tall, then they look too thin. Jenny and sarah are thin enough just need to be a few inches taller so it makes there appearance look more stretched out.
J.Lee said on 28/May/08
Yes, kendra is right. Glenn, how can you explain that tyra is taller than her in this video?
limy said on 26/May/08
I met Tyra one time here in Dallas, TX during some ANTM tour lol.
She's definitely 5'10".
I'm 5'9" and I walked up to her to greet her (she was wearing some cute flats) and she stood about an inch - inch 1/2 taller than me.
Kendra said on 22/May/08
Stacy Keibler is like 5'11 and in this video tyra looks taller then her.. Click Here
runt said on 21/May/08
Okay, Jenny McCarthy and Sarah Silverman would be underqualified for a runway because they are 5-6.5
Can somebody explain to me what issues would be caused by their 5-6.5 frames on a runway? Are they too hot?
Bruce said on 14/May/08
tyra is tall. she is a 100% 5'10". and anytime people come over to her show both men & women she seem to tower nearly everyone. i think she is like 6'1" & 6'2" in nearly all her heels.
it's quite funny because there are noteable supermodels who are not tall & an example is Kate Moss who is about 5'6.5". To be a runway model you have to be 5'9" minimum but she is in high fashion despite her height.
C. said on 8/May/08
Not all models are tall, but for runway (which is where you see the supermodels) they are. All of the model contestants from ANTM recently have been from 5'8" to 6', so they are usually tall. Tyra, Naomi, Crawford, etc. are but a few, but of course there are exceptions. However, you're usually not going to find a supermodel that's not at least average height. Whether it's high fashion or commercial modeling, as women of average height fit perfectly into most clothes that you see in the store.

And Twiggy was quite tall for her generation. 5'6" was not average at the time.
AM said on 8/May/08
I have one thing to say to Maya, models aren't always tall. A big image is created by the entire industry when a lot of models are actually avarage height... Look at Kate Moss, Twiggy and ANTM winner Eva
blasian said on 5/May/08
Tyra is 5'10 her friend Kimora is 5'10 ish maybe 5'11, not 6 feet. Kimora has 3 necks that is why she can lie about her height.
Selma said on 2/May/08
Im 5'10" and I most say that it isn't always nice to be that tall. Sometimes its quite annoying.
Maya said on 28/Apr/08
Models are tall...they're SUPPOSED to be tall. It's what the fashion world demands, ANTM didn't just decide that randomly. Just like pilots have to be able to see, surgeons can't have shaky hands or well, even air hostesses...they need to reach the top baggage compartments.
Not everyone can be a model, especially a top model...some of us have to find something else to do, instead of complaining about how our genes are unfavourable.
Tira said on 18/Apr/08
i think that it is wrong that you HAVE to be at least 5'7" to be on ANTM. most people are not that tall, and it is unfair. you cant help it if you have a short gean!!
Alessandro said on 18/Apr/08
I'm 5'8.75 and my gf is 5'7.5, so who's taller really just depends on what shoes she's wearing. lol. It bugs me sometimes cuz i want to be either taller or shorter and hav it stay constant one way or another. Either way, tyra's a big girl, and hot to boot, and i'm sure tall or short, no guy wud mind her on his arm! GO TYRA
maximus said on 15/Apr/08
She appears to enjoy wearing 3 to 4 inch heels......it really helps her with guests(mostly male)who are 6" and over.....the only guy that towered over her was the 6"10 basket ball player...but then again there was little she could do about that..lol.
ms.k said on 15/Apr/08

Tyra gives me confidence maybwe one day i will b able to put on the beutiful stylish heels and not feel so awkward and beutiful like Tyra.
ms.k said on 15/Apr/08

wtf is this about guys who like shorter women like to bull? you obviously don't know men to well sally.
Leah said on 29/Mar/08
Yeah well my current bf get really insecure and clammed up when I wear heels althoug he is 6'2" and so effin hott he thinks I shouldn't tower over him with 6 inch heels if anything he'd want me to shrink
Longtallsally said on 24/Mar/08
Most men who feel they must date short women have a short man's complex. Tall women challenge insecure men. Many times these are the guys who like to bully women. If these guys are eye to eye with a girl he might be afraid that he might get the snot kicked out of him if he pulls some crap.
Leah said on 19/Mar/08
I went to a Tyra show and we were both wearing about 4 inch heels and i was about 2 inches taller than her and i'm 5'11"
