I do think she is actually her listed height, it's just her proportions aren't very modelesque

She looks like she has longer torso/shorter legs-bodytype, but I still think Pricciao`s estimation looks right. What is her listed height? I have long legs/short torso, but I am only 168 cm, my legs look the same in pictures, only my torso looks bit shorter.

I think she is listed 176-177cm but I really doubt she is. I saw and talked a few times with her last FW. I am 171cm and even if she was wearing small heels, she did not appear to be much taller than me. Usually, when you meet models, you're impressed by how tall they are. I did not have this impression with her. hm, I would say Marine is 173-174cm max.

I don't think marine is short, she's like a ginta. Tall but with shorter limbs. Now sigrid agren is short, I was expecting her to be much taller but not at all. Benjamin eidem is also not tall

^ Benjamin is an inch or two shorter than most models but it doesn't matter because he's hot as hell and can carry off any outfit imo But I'm not sure about Sigrid being short, she always looks the same height as most models, I don't know what you're basing that on?

Benjamin Eidem is short, he was shorter than Irina Kulikova at Prada and they were both wearing the same exact flat sandals. I'd say he's actually around 5'10-5'11 ish. Then there's Carlos Peters who is most likely 5'10. Clement too I don't think is very tall, haha seems most Prada boys are short.

^ Exactly Irina is an Amazon and I'm finding it weird to hear someone called short at 5'10/11 when I am 5'8 myself

By general societal rule, being short is probably 5'4" and under for a woman and 5'7" and under for a man.
I'm assuming model wise, being 5'9" and under is short for women, and under 5'11" is probably short for a man?
So, irina is by no means short.

Yes. we can't use "normal" sizing standards when talking about models. The numbers I've always seen thrown around are 5'11" for the ladies and 6'2" for the guys. Anything below either one would be considered "short" in the modeling world. But it seems like for the ladies, the number has been decreased to 5'10" because it seems most new models fall in that range (despite having 5'11" thrown on their show cards), but I think the range for the guys remains the lofty 6'2", which I think is really tall.

we have already discuss about Cara's height but this picture was quite impressive, we cant tell if they are wearing heels or not, but as far as i know Hanne is 5'10" and Kasia is listed as 5'10.5" but Cara looks extremely tiny, almost like a fan taking a picture with it's fave models
