Also, less than 10% of women in the world are born naturally tall and thin enough to be a model.
Why do you think that?
because they just do. I don't think it would be a common requirement for runway/fashion models to be tall if there wasn't a reason. Why would agencies have height requirements? What other reason would designers want tall models if it wasn't because they felt that the clothes looked better on them.
