It’s the rule that if you want to be a model, you’ve got to be tall. In fashion industry, 5’9″ is not enough for being a model. But now, woman who tall less than 5’9″ can be appear on runway. So, these are 5 top short models that will change the world.
Lily-Rose Depp may only be 5’3″, but she looms large in Karl Lagerfeld’s mind. The Chanel muse has walked many a tweed-filled runway and starred in various beauty and eyewear campaigns for the brand. Now 17, Depp has already graced a fair number of magazine covers, among them Jalouse, LOVE, V Magazine, Vogue Paris, British Vogue, ELLE France, ELLE Greece and Vanity Fair France. We suppose she has her equally petite, preternaturally beautiful mom to thank.
Instagirl Hailey Baldwin is one of the most visible models of our time thanks to the 5’7″ blonde’s close friendship with the Jenner and Hadid sisters. But the IMG signee — who’s walked for the likes of Dolce & Gabbana, Jeremy Scott, Prabal Gurung, Elie Saab, Tory Burch, Off-White, Zadig & Voltaire and Tommy Hilfiger — has more than earned her stripes. Baldwin is the face of L’Oréal Professionnel. She has fronted campaigns for Guess, Karl Lagerfeld, Tommy Jeans and UGG. She has covered multiple editions of Harper’s Bazaar. And she featured in LOVE’s 2016 advent calendar, so you know it’s real.
Kate Moss is an industry icon, which is amazing, considering shes’ only 5’7″. But her keen modeling abilities and dangerous, cool-girl vibe we all wish we had have turned her into one of the most successful faces in the world.
Cara Delevingne’s height has been reported to be anywhere between 5’7″ and 5’8″. One thing’s for sure, she’s definitely not traditional runway height. Her agent once tried to get her cast in Louis Vuitton’s Fall 2012 show, but she was cut when Marc Jacobs asked, “Why is that dwarf in there?”
Devon Aoki is one of the shortest high fashion models out there, and has enjoyed a lot of success through her career. In the late 90s, she became the face of Versace and also posed for Chanel, Kenzo, Moschino, Fendi and many more. How tall is she? Just 5’5″.
Not only tall woman can be a model, this is a chance for short women. We hope this will be an inspiration for you.
