Height doesn't matter as much as proportion does it? These days a 5'7 girl wearing designer heels would be 6'2 at least.

yes, that's right. but in general, proportions are better when you're tall. it's rather seldom for a shorter girl to have long legs and a shorter upper body.

^Like Edita V., that girl has huge legs. She looks so tall on the runway, when I found out that she was quite short i was very surprised...

That's true, I've heard that Miranda Kerr is quite short for a model but has exceptional proportions.

Frida G once claim that she's like 184~186cm just as Karlie,but Karlie looks like 1~2cm taller than Frida in most pictures.no? so it would make sense if Karlie's like 186cm she's a giant.

Ali michael is 5'8. While working backstage at a shows i kind of used my 6ft1 height as a way to guage the height of some of the models. A few models i have seen in person are so short it surprised me. Like paolo anchisi and corey baptiste. Both listed at 6'0 are more like 5'10 ish. David agbodji and sean opry arent as tall as me either. But some models made me feel short. Guerrino santulianna towered over me also demy matzen i think those boys are like 6'5!! Also i was surprised at how tall ginta lapina was in person because she looks short in pictures but shes a true 5'10.5

What about Cara D? I've heard rumors that she's a little shorter than 5'8... Same goes for Barbara Palvin and Anna Selezneva ....

Cara D. was listed at 5'8 when she started with Storm Models at age 17 (almost 18 i think), she probably didn't grow until now - and btw, storm is known for cheating a lot on their models heights, so i guess shes between 5 and 5'8. i know a model who is friends with barbara - she apparently doesn't look that tiny, but she is probably also between 5'7 and 5'8!

I think cara delevigne and barbara palvin are both 5'7. If storm listed cara at 5'8 then trust me you have to deduct an inch or two from the listed height. Storm is notorious for boosting model heights beyond reason
