How Tall Do You Have to Be to Become a Fashion Model?

In the modeling world, height requirements can vary. Depending on the type of modeling you’d like to pursue, being lean and tall may not be a critical factor. That’s why, aside from height, the agency will often look at the other features too.

If you are interested in modeling for editorial, commercial prints, body parts, or catalogs, brands will look for models that can resonate with their brand. From body physique to facial structure, criteria for the model can differ for each job. However, if you’re looking to become a high fashion model, most modeling agencies may have a requirement of at least 5”8 to 5”11. Even so, there are a few high fashion models that are 5"7 or over 6"0 tall. Companies may make exceptions, as long as they fit other requirements.
