James said on 10/Sep/15
Rob how she can be 5'8" when she is the same height next to cara delevingne?or cara is +170?
[Editor Rob: from what I've seen of them together, I believe Rihanna can appear taller.]

SHE IS 5'7"
John87 said on 2/Jun/15
I love how Jay states 5'8 is not short for a woman, it's 3.5" above average so no **** it isn't short. That's like saying a 6'1.5" man is 'not short' - captain obvious to the rescue. Rihanna is a tall lady, fact.

@DOG miranda kerr is not 5 foot 9, she is 5 foot 7 and i think candice is 5 foot 8. 173cm for rihanna.
Xyz said on 28/Dec/14
I'd say 5'3.5" for J.Lo , 5'5" for Bey and 5'7" for Rihanna.
Jared said on 15/Nov/14
she's not 5'8.
You need to look no further than shoeless pictures of her and Chris Brown.
Chris Brown is 5'11 and she looks exactly 4 inches shorter than him
Ashley said on 8/Nov/14
Rob when Rihanna did SNL with Anne Hatheway she looked shorter and Anne claims 5'7. What do you think of that? Even if you bump Anne's height to 5'8 Rihanna is still shorter.
[Editor Rob: would it maybe have been a case of Anne in big heels and Rihanna in a lower type of boot. That's only thing I can think of as I'd be surprised if Rihanna really was shorter than anne]
andre said on 5/Oct/14
She is about 5ft7.5 or 5ft8 and chris brown is 5ft11.5

@evil Rihanna is 2" taller than beyonce. In those pictures shows that beyonce wearing at least 1.5" taller heels. Altough beyonce is standing as straight as she could and rihanna is not. They llok at the same height.
Rihanna wears 120mm (4.5") heels
evil said on 23/Sep/14
i think that rihanna is a solid 5'8, but i think that beyonce is not 5'6 if rihanna is that tall, i think beyonce is at least 5'7, maybe a weak 5'7.5
j said on 22/Sep/14
If she claims 5.8ft let her go on flat totally with willow smith by then we know how tall she is and for willow smith she is 5.0ft
Jay said on 10/Sep/14
ROJINA, where did you even get that estimate from?
littlesue said on 4/Sep/14
I would say she lying more about her weight than her height
ROJINA said on 3/Sep/14
She CANT be 5"8............someone at that height who weighs as that much would be MUCH more trimmer! I d say she is 5"6-MAXIMUM.

On Facebook i saw a photo with her and 186cm Jim Parson! Rihanna seems 5.75-6 inches shorter than Jim! Can she goes with 170-171 Rob? What do you think about?
[Editor Rob: possibly she didn't stand as well as him?]
Just said on 30/Dec/13
She herself claimed 5'8. She's shorter than 5'9 Doutzen Kroes in The Victoria's Secret Fashion Show 2012. This height seems right for her.
DOG said on 30/Nov/13
@silent D. i think you have some interest in Rihanna's height. i just wondering if Rihanna, Candice, Miranda Kerr, standing side by side without heels. Candice and Miranda are claiming that they are 175cm. but why does Rihanna look much taller than Candice in Victoria's Secret 2012.
Kristin said on 10/Nov/13

5ft8 flat. This is how tall a a tall lady looks in heels. Got you all deceived...she is tall for a woman at 173 at night but not taller. Have a nice life people.
Strange said on 2/Oct/13
you dont think that Rihanna is 5 feet 8 inches at night ,though ?

i mean, she sure does not claim night height herself, cause no one does. Since most people only know morning height or height after being 4 hours awake or so
Conti said on 18/Sep/13
Chris Brown is around 5'11.5,so that makes her 5'7.5

She looks the same height as friend Cara Delevigne on holiday today, who is listed as 5'7" but may be a tad shorter. Rihanna may wants to appear taller than she is because whenever she wears "flat" shoes, they're always of the type that have a secret 3-4cm heel.
teej said on 11/Jul/13
In her pics with beyonce, beyonce looks taller for some reason and they both wear heels? Beyonce is listed as 5'6, so rihanna must be shorter, or something, i honestly do believe she looks tall for a girl, but why is beyonce taller than her?
PMP said on 10/Jul/13
i need to give some correction in my argument
50mm heel = (+35mm)
85mm heel = (+52.5mm)
100mm heel = (+60mm)
120mm heel = (+70mm)
^^^ without platform

120mm heel include 20mm platform (Christian Louboutin Bianca 120mm)
>>120mmH+P - 30mmPLATFORM = 90mm heel = (+55mm) +30mmPLATFORM = (+85mm)

140mm heel include 30mm Platform (Christian Louboutin Bianca 140mm)
>>140mmH+P - 30mmPLATFORM = 110mm heel = (+65mm) +30mmPLATFORM = (+95mm)

160mm heel include 40mm Platform (Christian Louboutin Daffodile 160mm)
>>160mmH+P - 40mmPLATFORM = 120mm heel = (+70mm) +40mmPLATFORM = (+110mm)

How thal is he? 5'11"(180cm)right?
1800mm + 20mm men's shoes = 1820mm
and rihanna is wearing 140mm with 30mm platform so her height will increase 95mm
if rihanna 5'8" >> (1730mm + 95mm = 1825mm)

rihanna looks 20mm-30mm taller than that guy, you can see it at (00:50-00:52 from your video)
1820mm +20mm or 30mm = 1840mm or 1850mm
1840mm or 1850mm - 95mm = 1745mm or 1755mm

Rihanna must a little bit more than 5'8".
Sam said on 7/Jul/13
I agree with G man 619 - people on here like to say that the men are always lying and are shorter than they really are. But the sexy, long legged women get a pass with people raising the height. Rhianna claimed 5'8, never said 5'9. I know that some actress' will boost their height (Jennifer Lawrence), but others like Rhianna probably don't care to be listed as an inch taller.
superog said on 6/Jul/13
look at rihannas official,up-to-date website Click Here it's 5'9"
G man 619 said on 2/Jul/13
It's funny how posters like to deflate the heights of those celebs who they really despise and envy such as 'Justin Beiber' and 'Tom Cruise' but when it comes to hot chicks like Rihanna they like to inflate the height. Must be some kind of fantasy thing.
rexon said on 28/Jun/13
R u kiddin' david? Compare her photos with other celebs she really looks taller 5'9" (1m 76cm)at least
David said on 26/Jun/13
Rihanna NEVER 5ft 10 but definetley 5ft 8 probably with 1 inch shoes on.Great pop singer ,great songs i am a big fan.
liars said on 5/Jun/13
In the Victoria's secret show, she looked much shorter than Doutzen Kroes, who's real height according to a photographer I know is 5'7.5" - 5'8"
Lee said on 4/Jun/13
she is 5ft 8in certainly looked about that tall in the where have you been video next to all those men. anyway she said so herself, she might have been young but woman stop growing around 16-17 she does wear platforms a lot and can look 6ft 2 in them but barefoot i'd say 5'8" like Ciara
Nick said on 1/Jun/13
5'8 according to this (next to Ashton Kutcher): Click Here
PMP said on 3/May/13
5.5" platform won't makes you 5.5" taller it only give you 2,75"-3" taller taller. Stevan Raab is 6' then Rihanna is 6'-3" = 5'9"
gruethy said on 1/May/13
She is 1.78 cm (5'10") i am sure
fmaalmi said on 21/Apr/13
She is at least 5'9" compare her with other celebs and look their photos carefully,It's clear that she is really tall

Emily said on 1/Apr/13
@janelle is that 35 inch inseam to the floor or to the ankle?
janelle said on 31/Mar/13
i'm 5'8.5 and my legs are 35 inches inseam which are longer than hers. people think i'm 5'10-6' because i look like a giant from faraway/in pics, but i was measured by my docor and my friend, and they both said 174cm. this proves that just because her legs look super long and she looks tall from afar doesn't mean she's tall. I'll give her 5'8".

I saw her at supermarket i swear she's at least 5'10-5'11 without boots
KN6\'4 said on 4/Mar/13
@Cliff that picture with MJ doesn't show what shoes they were wearing and she was probably wearing heels, and I am pretty sure Michael was about 178cm anyway so. Rihanna is easily 6 foot in heels, she is probably around 5'9 or more barefoot. With 6 foot (maybe 6'1) Chris Brown at the Grammys she wasn't much shorter
rendygarp said on 3/Mar/13
More like 5'10"
Lemmeluvya said on 2/Mar/13
she's looking at least 5'9.5" next to other celebraties
boqumuyea said on 24/Feb/13
In my opinion 5'10" without heels . She is looking like really tall for bruno mars at grammys.
@BMS said on 21/Feb/13
Rihanna with 4" heels clearly 1" shorter than 6'0" chris brown.
5'11" - 4"heels = 5'9"
goshish said on 15/Feb/13
She is more like 5'9" or 5'9.5 for chris brown

I remember chris brown was listed as 6 foot 2. He said it himself in an interview. He said he was too tall to dance. He was 19 when he said that. 5 foot 8 for rihanna.
liars said on 3/Feb/13
I used to follow the modelling scene, as I used to be a fan of some of them. I don't know all of the women in this show, but know that it's an open secret that Doutzen, Adriana and Alessandra are signifcantly shorter than the average model. They are considered to be in the 5'7 - 5'8 range. Hilary Rhoda is listed as 5'11, but is actually 5'9 as she once write then deleted, several years ago. She said "I'm 5'9, 5'11 with heels" Her being 5'9 is consistant with some of the paparazzi pictures of her with her 5'10 ex-boyfriend. So, if anyone want to look through the pictures again, you've got a definite 5'9 benchmark for one of the girls.
I'd like to add that I've notice when Rihanna wears "flat" shoe's, they are often of the type that look flat but actually increse your height by 2-4cm...never seen her in properly flat shoes. Think she might be an height exaggerator myself, I'd put her at 5'7 and will be looking at Victorias Secret picks when I can be @rsed.
Jan said on 20/Dec/12
Doutzen is only 5'9. She has stated this herself in interviews. You have to pay attention to the footwear. Doutzen has on heels with a 2 inch platform in front with a much higher heel. Rihanna has a smaller heel on. I would say Rihanna is 5'8.5. Candice is 5'8 just like Alessandra. Miranda is only 5'7.5 max.
Me said on 9/Dec/12
I saw her with Candice Swanpowel. Rihanna look a bit taller than her.
Candice Swanpowel is 5'9" based on VS official website.
Ally said on 6/Dec/12
So, if anyone watched the Victoria Secret Fashion Show, it should be pretty obvious that she's closer to 174+ Unless all those models are 5'6 or 5'7 and exaggerating their height.
Jack said on 6/Dec/12
maybe 174 cm is closer?
JB said on 5/Dec/12
chris brown is 6 foot and rihanna really isnt that much shorter than him she looks 3 about 4 inches shorter than him, ri is definitely 5'8+ barefoot

if you don't look closer they do have the same height. but if you look it closer rihanna looks little tiny shorter

they have same height 5'8" or 5'9". i'm really sure.

Rob, I need your opinion

i have an interest in this Picture

i have already check Christian Louboutin Site. their shoes have the i2 heels height (120mm) every Christian Loboutin Shoes above 120mm have extra platform.

this picture shows rihanna have lo lever aye.

i think from this pitcure they have do have the same height.
What do you think Rob?

i don't know if they are 5'8" or 5'9". but they have same height. (i think)
ME said on 17/Nov/12
Doutzen = 5'10" + 6"heels = 6'2"
Rihanna = 5'8" + 4"heels = 5'10"
6'2" - 5'10" = 4"
but the gap which shown is 3" max
5'8" -5'9" for rihanna
Adriana said on 14/Nov/12
Doutzen is listed @ 5'10, and not 5'9. I think Rihanna is between 5'7 and 5'8.

in ME's picture she's walking side bt side with 5'10 with 6" heels Doutzen Kroeswhile rinna only wearing 4".
the gap that shown is 2-3"

If she wearing same heels size. She might be look closer to the other model height.

She has long legs. 5ft8 seems legit for her. Not any higher though.
theblacklab said on 11/Jun/12
5'9" now I think, she's a skinny girl and despite her height, she wouldn't weigh 137lbs at 5'8", she's a celeb after all. I agree with Ally that if the claim was made age 17, she would have grown, but her claim would've been when she was 17. She was probably about 5'6.25 when she was 15, 5'7.25 at 16, 5'8" at 17, 5'8.5" at 18 and 5'9" by 19.

Yeah Ally, Ur right...
Most definitely 5'9 minimum!
Ally said on 12/Feb/12
She's clearly 174 to 175 cms. She said she was 5'8 when she was 17 years old. At that age, people don't get measured very often. She was probably relying on measurements from a year or two ago. Definitely taller than 173cms now.

Just look at her standing by Mariah. Tallish.
