Think Ali Michael, Amanda Norgaard, Kristine Froseth, Luma Grothe, Hannah Holman, Bambi, etc etc.

Girls like Hirschy, although undeniably high fashion, are more of a risk because they aren't as transferable from market to market.

When you think about it, the exceptions to the rules are girls SOOO amazing that any physical requirement clients usually DEMAND cease to matter.

Yes? I think it's quite interesting. Although, as per usual, there are always exceptions.
This is true! For some reason most of the shorter models are coming from Australia. I even noticed their asian models being the shortest but highly exceptional faces. They have Wendy Chen and Fernanda in their "development" section that are 5'7. They do have Merille Raagas at 5'8 which is tall for an asian but short for runway. I do hope to see their faces in the runway and big campaigns soon.

5'5" is a DEFINITE underestimation, I would say no less than 5'7.5"-5'8"

Lol, no honestly. She is definately no taller than 5ft 6 for a start.

She is a great model but people do say she lacks the height. She is definetely more average height. My mother was suspecting shorter and thats why I wanted to see what others think.

That is insane, gives me a lot of hope for a few of my friends with amazing bodies/faces who are worried about not having good enough model height and being 5'8-5'9"

I also think that Elsa Brisinger (new girl who debuted at Wang) is no taller than 5'8"

Yes. It gives hope to a lot of other girls too but I am sure models can make it based on hard work. That probably makes up for shorter height.

I know Zippora Seven is around 5ft4. She is pretty cute in height. She was even said to be 5ft 3 and half. Her agencies have to claim a taller height so they say 5ft 6. Even that is shorter than expected.

Candice is actually taller than Edita. Candice is about the same height as Aline Weber and roughly 5'9" but Candice is built very small giving the appearance of her being shorter. Even if you check out backstage shots of her when she did fashion week, she wasn't insanely short. She is tall enough to wear the finale/evening section dresses which require height. Edita is 5'8".
Another issue that makes Candice seem shorter is that her bestest friends like Erin Heatherton is over 6 feet tall. Karlie, Arlenis are also over 6 feet.

If you look back to my post, I mentioned Candice was taller than Edita.

Some one already said Edita is no taller than 5ft 6. She may be even shorter. I mean come on... It is not too hard to see that she looks average rather than tall. She is shorted than Isabeli when stood next to her and people who have worked with Isabeli say she is actually 5ft 7. 5ft 8 is a huge leap for her because that is technically fairly tall for a woman.

How can Candice even possibly be 5ft 9?? She is shorted than Rosie!!!! Rosie is claimed to be 5ft 9 and I thibk she is actually 5ft 8. The max Candice is would probably be 5ft 7. She is roughly around Miranda's height who is commonly believed to be 5ft 7.

Never mind, different people, different views.

Here's a great pic (that's really Candice's back side), Candice is sort of leaned over a little, her head is down a little while Miranda is standing upright, and Candice still has about an inch over Miranda. The shoulder height difference is the most obvious.

That's not the best pic because they are both on tip toes. Not being funny but to me, it looks like either they are the same height and not one taller than the other.
It also depends on the angle of the photo and how it is taken.

It's like that whole thing with Jennifer Aniston and Courtney Cox, they claim Courtney is 5ft 5 and Jen is 5ft 4 and then they claim that Courtney is 5ft 5 and Jen is 5ft 6! I bet it's the same with models.

My point there is Candice shorter than Rosie and it's obvious here. Rose is said to be around 5ft 8. Doutzen is said to be 5ft 9!!

Image sources are: Dailymail.co.uk for first pic, standard.co.uk for second pic, Celebzter.com for third pic, Zimbio.com for fourth pic and last too.

In all those pictures, Candice has this tendency to pose sticking her butt out so she's bent or leaning over a little while Miranda is standing upright. And that first pic you post is clearly a distorted angle pic. You can even see how big Doutzen's hand is compared to Miranda who's on the far right.

Edita seems to be around 5'8". 5'5" does not seem plausible because there is no great height gap between her and other girls in backstage shots.
The only girls I can think of who would hit close to the 5'5" mark would be Amanda Norgaard, Jagger, Hannah Holman, Hirschy, Rasa (rasia?), etc. The REAL shorties.

It's not really a view but that I've seen Candice multiple times in NYC. She blends in with the rest of models. She has the worst posture I've ever seen for a model despite all her workouts. You would be surprised how much taller models really are in person. For instance, I recently saw Jessica Stam and she is much taller than 5'10". I also spotted Jia Jing recently and she is listed as 5'11" but she is well over 6 feet tall. Joan Smalls is also much much taller than 5'10".
Miranda is another one who people think is a lot shorter than she really is..she is short for a model but she is a little taller than 5'7". She is built very tiny and has a baby face which gives the impression of her being smaller.

It's a pretty big myth in general that models tack on many inches of height on their comp cards. I've seen tons and tons of models from just living in NYC and models are tall and seem insecure about it. Say that models are short is a way to get non-models to get their hopes up...

Yes, also have to add that another tfs member AlmostFamous, Taylor, is friends with Edita and confirmed that Edita is taller than her. Taylor is 5'7"/5'8".

This is really interesting to read because we always see the contrary, it's always that the models are shorter than their listed heights.
