Not quite realistic. I think Nicole is a solid 6'1" max as she's only about 4cm taller than Cat McNeil.
I think at Fendi they all had different shoes, because on Nicole's tumblr she clearly states that she is 6'2 and 1/4 of an inch.

The shoes at Fendi were 'different' but the heel height was the same. She was 2 girls behind Karlie and Karlie was taller.
Also at DSquared2 Spring 2014 she was standing on the podium along from 6-foot Irina K and you'd be hard pressed to find over 2 inches of height between them. They looked exactly the same.
6'2 and 1/4 inches is almost 189cm
Just....no.

that pic of Karlie & Gisele is ridiculous. I am convinced Karlie is still growing.

Irina is like 6'1-6'2", I take Nicole's words for it, I don't think she would lie about being that tall, it's not exactly the best thing for a model to be as tall as she says she is.

I understand that which is what doesn't make sense.
If she is that tall, why does she not look it?
If she isn't, why would she say she is?

Irina is a giant but definitely isn't 6'2".
She herself has said she's 183 on her Formspring and that makes her a solid 6', which makes sense because she also said both Karlie and Frida are taller than her putting them at a good 185.
Look at Nicole next to Alana Zimmer in the Dior Spring 2014 finale and behind Cat McNeil (both 180) at Laroche Fall '13, there is just no way there's 9cm or over 3 inches height difference.
Remember, that height difference would be the same as say Sasha Pivovarova next to Toni Garrn.
Quite dramatic.

Also, 6'2" on the runway stands out like a sore thumb, think Tiiu back in the mid 2000s

Another tall girl is Timea Birkner, who I don't think has been mentioned in this thread yet.
Noticed her first at Givenchy this season when in the finale she made Jourdan look short
In the finale at JPG Fall 2013 Couture she was behind Frida and was the same height so I'm convinced she's a 6-foot-one'er.
Impressive.
Here she is with Anmari Botha and 5'11" tall Thana Kuhnen.

I really can't get behind the idea that Nicole Pollard is 184, which is shorter than me. If she say's she's 6'2 1/4" I think she should at least be in the 186 category.

I cant believe Jourdan is 6' despite what she said on twitter. If she's 6' then so is Alana Zimmer, Lais Ribeiro and Jac because she's the same height.
She's also shorter than Toni.

I can understand because she said that on her tumblr but I just do not believe it even for a second.
I've said it before, she's shorter than Karlie and if Nicole is 188.5cm (which is 6'2 1/4") that'd make Karlie around 190.
Even Jodie Kidd wasn't that tall and she's probably the tallest big runway model there ever was that I know of.

Btw, these are models I had at the top of my head so can add/update as we go.
Caroline Trentini is 182cm

This season's started so soon hopefully I'll see more pics and finale videos where I can better assess some more tall girls.

^ Haven't seen that name in a while.
Yes she's about the same as Frida so I'd put her at 185.
