Anna Selezneva? She doesn't look short, does she?

Yes Cara is definitely between 5'7 and 5'8. I have seen her and am 5'7, she was the same height as me. Her bodytype is really really tiny also.

Storm has definitely lied the most about stats, i.e When Agyness Deyn was new they decided she was 18 years old (she was 24) and 5'11 (she is 5'8)

I just refuse to believe that girls who look so short like Barbara are 5'9 or even 5'8. Just look at the VS girls and Adriana is always notecebly taller than other angels like Alessandra and Candice and she is 5'10 I believe, and then there is a shot of Ale and Barbara together and the latter is definitely shorter, so if Ale is 5'9 the is no way Barbara is tall. if you look short, then most likely you are short (for a model of course)

wow it seems the industry seem to "bump" models heights quite a lot, does that mean models who are listed as 5'8 are actually shorter?

By model standard it is, where the golden number is 5'11" for ladies and 6'2" for gents.

Yeah agencies lie all the time. It's annoying.

If a girl is actually 5'8 the agency will list her as 5'9 because clients would think she's even less than 5'8 if the agency would list her as 5'8. Does that make sense? It's a vicious circle lol

lol its like "an inch here, an inch there, she's really 5'9 but we'll pretend shes 5'10.5"

So If they change the heights all the time, why does "height" supposedly matter so much? I mean if designers want tall girls, why do agencies bother bumping up their height even if they have a gorgeous face? Modeling agencies are so baffling!

I know, exactly! Maybe one day they'll just start telling it like it is and height won't be such a major factor in high fashion. At least I hope..

This. If everyone is lying why can't we just tell the truth and then you'd know what you're actually getting once your model arrives.
