Ebony magazine not only stated she was 5"3 but also said she was PETITE. Keep in mind petite is 5"3 and under. Ebony magazine styled Beyonce and took her measurements. They didn't have to ask her they measured her themselves. Most likely she would have lied about her height. But doing it themselves you can't fight the truth.

I find it odd that Ebony magazine described Beyonce at just 5'3". Where did they get that figure from? I do wonder if Beyonce gave that number herself.

I think 5'5" is definitely possible for her after reading through some comments below, but I think anything under 5'4" as an estimate for her is unlikely. It is very hard to tell since she often wears very high heels, so her height could be all over the place, but after doing a bit of research I'd say 5'5" on the dot is possible (maybe she's closer to 5'6" in the morning?).

I am 5'9 and 3/8ths people say I am 5'6 and some say 5'10 but it's because I am not skinny. In America people who are thin can lie about height. Beyoncé is 5'4 and 130 j.lo is 5'3 120 on this pic and david beckham is 5'11 170-175 lbs. Overexaggerating height is common.

Lmao Michelle is extremely taller than Beyoncé! Lmao Michelle is 5"8 1/2 I think you mean Latavia who is only 5"0 in reality. Kelly is 5"7 and letoya luckett is 5"8-5"9. Beyoncé is only 5"3
Rojina said on 22/Oct/16
People commenting on her height here must be mad. Before the big hair and massive heels in her Destiny child days she clearly hovered over bandmate Michelle who must have been 5"2 or 5"3 at the most
Jinjo said on 13/Oct/16
I used to think she was 5'7"

5'6? No way. She is at most 5'4.

I can reach 1.75m from 1.64m and be taller than her

Ebony magazine told the truth! Beyonce is a petite 5"3
YUPPY said on 19/Sep/16
Google is wrong. Beyonce is very short and small. She has never seen 5"7 or 5"6! In her life. Solange is listed as taller than Beyonce but in EVERY picture beyonce is if Google was actually right solange would be listed shorter! Beyonce wears tall PLATFORM HEELS. So Google means nothing (but solange is taller than beyonce in person) Kendrick Lamar is taller than beyonce as well. You thought she was taller because the braids on her head are vertical instead of horizontal making her appear taller than him but she isn't ON TOP OF THAT Kendrick is hunched over and bends down to her. Kendrick is 5"4 and beyonce is 5"3! Ebony magazine is a highly recognized magazine! And it's EXTREMELY DOUBTFUL THAT THEY WOULD LIE! They have absolutely no reason to lie! beyonce has every reason to lie! She has fans of big women who think she is over 150 pounds, when beyonce herself said she is 130 pounds. 130 pounds on 5"5 to 5"7 will look very skinny! Where beyonce looks very healthy with nice thick thighs and butt. She is also only a size 2! Michael Costello designed her dress and told everyone that she is TINY! Look at beyonce with prince! They are eye to eye and prince is 5"2! This will be simply impossible with someone 5"5-5"7 with heels. Beyonce is 5"3 esquire magazine stated that in 2013 and ebony stated 5"3 that in 2009! I was in the Beyhive pits at her show and me and a group of other people were super shocked that she was short! Listen to "bow down" she says "don't think I'm just his LITTLE WIFE!" She meant exactly that!
Michael said on 18/Sep/16
Well first of all, when she was on stage with Kendrick Lamar, he was wearing shoes and she was barefoot and she still had an inch on 5'4 Kendrick. Second that's false. There's some women who are tall who love wearing heels. Some of the ones who don't they're just insecure of their height but you know they come to accept it. Taylor Swift for example is tall and she wears gigantic heels. And Ebony Magazine is wrong. People who've met Beyonce say she's actually kind of tall like 5'6-5'7 though honestly she looks more like a solid 5'5 to me. Really your points are all wrong. Maybe do some more research next time and you probably would've been able to dig up this info that took me like 5 minutes on Google Search.
Yuppy said on 17/Sep/16
Sorry kelly Rowland is 5"7 1/2 and WE ALL KNOW BEYONCE IS SHORTER THAN KELLY.
Yuppy said on 11/Sep/16
Michael we said 5"3, first of all women with a real 5"7 height wouldn't find it a necessary to wear heels at ALL times most of them prefer flats. Most tall women dislike being even taller. Beyonce doesn't have long legs, long arms or a long torso...? A person with a real 5"7 or even 5"6 height would never see eye to eye with tiny Prince or Kendrick Lamar especially with heels on. Rihanna is actually 5"8 and she doesn't wear as high of a heel as Beyonce, and riri rarely wears platform heels when standing with Beyonce who is most likely wearing platforms or 5 inch heels. Ebony magazine did interview Beyonce in person and described the women they saw as a petite 5"3 inches tall.
Michael said on 1/Sep/16
I like how everyone states Beyonce is 5'2. There's just no way she's that height. I saw a pic with her and Rihanna together wearing the same inches of heels and she doesn't look 6 inches shorter than her. She's definitely 5'5 not more than 5'5.5 in my opinion.
Yummy said on 29/Aug/16
She is lying dude, it even sounds like she is lying. Girls lie about their height all the time especially if they have the proportions to fool you. Look at her next to 5"2 prince.

Like M said, Kendrick Lamar is only 5"4 and beyonce is shorter than him. Beyonce is 5"3 guys and she is really self conscious about it nothing is wrong with being 5"3 and that's actually not short.

With 5'4 Kendrick Lamar. I think we know better that she is not tall.

She is 5"3 ebony magazines already proved this. She is very small and petite.

realheight said on 2/Jun/16
I think her height definitely not close to 5'7". but I'm sure she is not 5'3" or under. she seems like 5'4.25"(+/-0.25) to me.
Jada64 said on 20/May/16
She can't be "5'3". Bruno Mars is 5'5 and she towered over him at the haftime show. 5'3 would be Amber riley or Kelly Ripa.
2016 Baby I just seen her. said on 11/May/16
Well it's 2016 and I just came back from the formation world tour last night in Dallas may 9, 2016 at 7:30 and I was in front row. I'm here to tell you Beyonc is so tiny in height and weight. She is about 5"3 or less! Ebony magazine was RIGHT! I went straight for this purpose! She was the shortest of all her dancers too! Except 1 but that girl was even smaller like 4"11. Sorry ladies Beyonc is in the petite gang when it comes to height. 5"2 to 5"3 on a good day,
Just said on 5/Mar/16
I think 5'6 maybe 5'5 is about right. Certainly not 5'4!
Az said on 3/Mar/16
I think I've said this before somewhere but I have seen Solange her sister many many times due to my line of work and she's probably 5'4". Shorter than my 5'7.5" when I'm in flats she's in heels. Don't really know how she and B stack up but I do know Solange is under 5'5.5" and that B is shorter or close to height of Bruno Mars, who I've met and hung out with due to work...Bruno is about 5'4.75" at most.
murt said on 3/Mar/16
Yeah I agree - she's got be around 5'2 or 5'3 -- those heels are 5 inches.
SK said on 17/Feb/16
I have to agree with what heelshealheigh wrote below. Beyonce said in a Jet magazine interview years ago that she was 5'3" and a size 10. That sounds about right for her. A woman who is legitimately 5'6" and wearing those high heels can't be that short next to David Beckham. Beckham is tall enough, but not over 6' tall. Frankly, Beyonce looks like she's 5'6" in those heels, which are substantial. Both she and JLO appear to be the same height here, and both are wearing very high heels.
heelshealheight said on 13/Feb/16
If Beckham is about 5ft11 (he's listed as 5ft9-5ft10 elsewhere), these two women are no way even close to 5ft7. These women are wearing very high heels and Beckham continues to tower over them. These women are way below 5ft7 even in those huge heels of theirs. If their height claims were real, they could easily reach 5ft11 with high heels. Bogus Hollywood height claims..

Watch her and Bruno Mars and look at pics of her and Bruno at the super bowl. She's 5'5" tops. She was FANTASTIC btw. As was lady gaga. Wow. oxx
Evan said on 1/Feb/16
Hello Rob! In the above picture of Beyonce with Beckham and Jennifer Lopez, as we can see, Beyonce and J Lo look the exact same height. So how can J Lo be 164 cm and Beyonce 168 cm?? I find Beyonce's height rather exaggerated, don't you think??
Editor Rob: I do think there is more difference than in that photo.
HeightObsession said on 12/Jan/16
It was really hard to tell Beyonce's height at Madame Tussauds London because of her bent position and 3-4 heel boots. I can definitely tell you that she is no less than 5'5.5 and no more than 5'6.5. She is definitely above average height. My guess would be more towards the higher end. We are similar in height and body type - I am 169 cm and 35.5-26-37.5. Her measurements are approximately 34-26-38. Our legs look similar, so I can tell you that she looks possibly shorter in pictures because we have larger legs than the average celebrity. I would know lol :P
Fray said on 11/Jan/16
@M - oops my bad, I thought I was on a site that was all about celeb-heights. D'oh!
M said on 7/Jan/16
@Fray you are obssesed with height..No they are not the same height, because Beyonce is bending her knees, and J.Lo probably has the higher heels on.
Fray said on 28/Dec/15
Anyone notice how JLo and Bae are the same height in the main photo above?
Anthem said on 23/Dec/15
Her figure at Madame Tussauds looked closer to 5'5, but she (her figure) was bending its legs, so maybe 5'5.5-5'6
Bob said on 12/Nov/15
Based on the picture you currently have up of Jennifer Lopez, David Beckham, and Beyonce:

Beck is sneakily wearing boots I believe, which gives him 1.5", maybe 2". That makes him 6' 0.5" to 6' 1" in this pic. Beyonce is up to around the middle of his nose, so subtract about 5" which makes Beyonce around 5' 8" in this pic

Beyonce is also wearing 3.5"-4" heels, which should give her about 3" in height. She's not 5' 6", but somewhere in between 5'6" and 5' 5". Def not 5' 7" like what Google is trying to tell us!
plus said on 4/Nov/15
Ok, now I am better guessing heights because of this website, I can she is 166-168 cm and no less. Just a little shorter tan Mariah Carey.
Conrad said on 18/Oct/15
She is small ! She is 5ft4 or 1.62 cm ; not like google claims 5'7 1.69 cm . So let's be real .
And Jlo is 5'3 or 1.60cm like Britney Spears .
andre said on 16/Oct/15
with beckham she looks 5ft4.5
Cata said on 29/Sep/15
She may look shorter, but only because she has thick muscular legs and wide hips. Next to other female celebs like Rihanna and Oprah, she looks no less than 5'6".
plus said on 24/Sep/15
No way she is so tall. Beckham is 5,11, and she is having heels 3x Beckham, Rather 5,4 5,5 maximum
Az said on 3/Aug/15
If Solange knowles is 5'8" then I am easily 5'11". Funny thing though, I just got back from my annual doctor appt. and Im 5'7" no change at 4:30pm in no shoes. I have seen and met solange a lot of times. I would bet my last $ that Solange is 5'4.5 MAX but truly every time I see her I'm working in flats and she's in heels and still inches shorter. She's 5'3" in real doctors office heiggt. Beyonc therefore ain't close to 5'6". Beyonc is 5'4" on a good day.
Dom said on 25/Jun/15

@Jonathan i thought you had to be at least 5 foot 8 to compete in miss universe. Olivia is 5 foot 8. Beyonce is 5 foot 6.

Watch Destiny's Child live performances (they wear same shoe designs & heels) and you can see that Kelly & Beyonce are about the same height. Michelle is slightly taller than the two. These ladies are rather tall, Kelly & Beyonce around 5'6.5"/170cm

The heels have no platform so would probably give about 3 to 3 and half inches in extra height
hmdmk said on 11/Feb/15
Ed Sheeran is listed as 5'8". With shoes in this pic, he's about 5'9. Beyonce's heels are about 5 inches in the pic. Standing next to each other, they're about the SAME height. This puts Beyonce at 5'4", 5'5" max.

I mean Beyonce is taller than Jlo 5'4 or 164 cm ; Britney Spears is also 5'4 or 162 cm ; Kelly is 5'7 and she's shorter of 1 or 2 inches so she's 5'5 or 5'6 better say 167-8 cm that's it.

@kay Beyonce's a heels have always been bigger though
Kay said on 18/Dec/14
she's always seemed about an inch shorter than kelly, same height in a lot of pics, but 5'6" is probably accurate.
Anita said on 17/Dec/14
@Laura for me Beyonce is more in the 5"5.5 (166 cm) case solved out.
Laura said on 16/Dec/14
Whitney Houston's height on her autopsy report is 5"6. Mariah Carey is around 2" shorter than Whitney. Beyonc and Mariah appear to be very similar in height in this photo with Donatella Versace: Click Here
Mariah isn't wearing platform heels, but Beyonc looks to be wearing heels with a small platform, slightly smaller than Donatella's: Click Here Neither Beyonc or Mariah are standing up straight, and even though Beyonc's heels aren't visible, it looks as though the heels are probably the same height or Beyonc's could be a smidgen taller. Since Whitney was 5"6, I would put both Beyonc and Mariah at no taller than 5"4.25. I think Jennifer Lopez is more in the 5"2-5"3 range.
Tabie2 said on 13/Dec/14
@kay Click Here here's the shoes she was wearing, they're monsters.
[Editor Rob: those are potential ankle breakers, you would definitely get over 5 inches, maybe close to 6 out of them.]
Tabie2 said on 13/Dec/14
@kay oh and the weave definitely adds to her height as well
Tabie2 said on 13/Dec/14
@kay okay kay in that photo Piers is not standing straight and to mention again Beyonce is wearing massive heels with huge pumps, as you can see during the interview. If B is 5'6 -5'7 she would have been the same height as Piers but she's not. Maybe 5'4" is short but 5'7 is definitely pushing it, considering her best friend Kelly Rowland who is a true 5'7"
Angie said on 2/Sep/12
I think Beyonce's 5'6 is accurate. I am 5'6 also, I met her in an elevator about 3 years ago. We both were wearing heels. Hers were 4 inches and mine were 3. She was exactly 1 inch taller than me.
Johnnyfive said on 2/Sep/12 much as I would love to agree with this 5'6 which she consistently looks next to her camel..I mean..hubby, Jay-Z, I think she's closer to being a weak 5'6 or about 166-67cms. I am basing my claim on the pictures of her next to a possible 160 to 161cm J-Lo. I only see about 2 inches difference between the two. Also, for reference, google the pics of the two of them with 5'11 Beckham. He still towers them even though they are both wearing heels which should bring both of them very close to his height if they are their listed heights but don't. So, possible 5'5 for Beyonce, 5'3 for J-Lo and while we're at it, Jay-Z is probably barely 6'0.5 based on this evidence.

I don't think beyonce is that tall, if she was 5'9 her pants would fit perfectly without crunching, or being being drapped acrossed ways. I am not tall and I have pants drapping down but accross ways. Go to Click Here and you see a recent picture of her and jay z. beware this website updates quick.

Beyonce is does not look 5'6 she looks like 5'8. And she also isn't very skinny, i would say slender with some mean curves!

A magazine I read stated that she was 5'6 and 1/4 which means the listing would be correct. I can believe she is 5'6.

I just saw Beyonce in concert and I don't know about her height but her dress size is about an American size 10/12. She's pretty thick.

Please verify the height of their shoe or heels and if all of them are standing really straight.
Franco said on 5/Aug/07
nice, she's still 167cm to me since small heels give no less than 3cm.

Glenn, what kind of shoes are you and Beyonce wearing? In the picture of you and I together, Beyonce and I kinda look to be the same height, no? She looks just a tad bit taller than me, I think.
Franco said on 31/Jul/07
best picture ever for Glenn honestly and he does look tall in that picture too :D
considering she had heels and glenn was 175-176cm then i gotta say she's 167cm exactly.

the more i look at her pictures the more i am convinced she's 167cm.

I think she's 5'6.5
mh_raul said on 27/Jul/07
I recently met Beyonc, at one meet and greet of her World Tour, I'm 6'0, and she was a little more shorter, around 5'11, but she had enormous heels, so she's like 5'7...
titch said on 17/Jul/07
i think everyone is getting a little confused over the sizes. i take it those saying she is a size six are american, which would be a size 10 in britain. i think she is more an american 8/ british 12, bottom half. top half probably smaller.
KAtiexx said on 15/Jul/07
She looks 5'6 in this picture, but she could be as tall as 5'7, but a different posture in this photo maybe.
ice said on 13/Jul/07
Alex: I have noticed that. Usually the very shapely women are 56 and under. USUALLY. But, I think most of the problem lies in proportion. A 52 woman with 34-26-36 will look different from a 57 woman with the same measurements.
Alex said on 11/Jul/07
Ice, yea and I also think its tougher for a tall thin or skinny girl at 5'8 or more to have a nice shape since most of the time they're more lanky but can still look good. Look at america's next top model. Some of those girls look good but don't have much of a shape.
Diamond said on 11/Jul/07
my comment is all of them can't be the same height , do keep in mind that the girls are wearing heels...
ice said on 11/Jul/07
Alex: Oh of course you can be shapely and thin at the same time. I've seen a few women like that. I just find it funny how much the general consensus on beauty changes from culture to culture in this country. I guess we realy are the melting pot.
Alex said on 10/Jul/07
Ice, I'm a white male and personally my taste varies with women but for the most part I like women thin or medium framed. I actually like the athletic build a lot too. At times I'll like them thickish but no more than that. Not into any big girls. Plus you can be curvy or have a shape a be thin or skinny anyway.
ice said on 10/Jul/07
Alex: I guess it all depends on culture. For example, what's ideal for an Asian guy, may be considered small for an American white guy. Latinos and Blacks tend to like the women a little bigger than both Asians and whites. However, this is just a broad generalization, nothing more, nothing less.

nicole said on 30/Jun/07
I always thought Beyonce was about 5'7.
But just like Tasha said, most celebrities lie about their height.
Alex said on 29/Jun/07
I would say medium is more like an 8 actually. When you start getting a bit thicker its size 10 and up. 4-6 is small and 2 is very small. As a guy the ideal size for a girl maybe a size 6. You know it really depends for me because I've seen girls anywhere from size 0 to size 8 that I've found attrative. Size 10 and up is when it starts getting a bit too much for me.
Tasha said on 27/Jun/07
My friend met Beyonce when she was promoting friend is 5'6 and she took a picture with Beyonce...Beyonce is shorter than my friend...I say she is 5'5....Note: most celebrities lie about their height....
ice said on 26/Jun/07
They're virtually the same size, but I think beyonce is a bit bigger, J-lo is just wider. My guess would be no smaller than a 6, and no bigger than an 8. That just shows how small hollywood is. Many people consider them "thick" or "larger" when in reality they're on the smaller side. When I think of medium, I'm thinking about a 10. Thick is like a 12, they're half of that.
Alex said on 24/Jun/07
J-Lo I think could be a size 8 though, but I'm not a girl so you may have a better estimate and she could be a size 6 though. Beyonce I think could be a size 6 though.
ice said on 16/Jun/07
A size 6? Wow, I was thinking a 6 for J-lo, and and an 8 for Beyonce because she is a bit bigger. But, who knows.
missmusicvocals said on 11/Jun/07
beyonce is 5'6 and she is about a size six i work at the studio she records at and im 5'10 i was surprised at how tiny she really was i thought she was taller and thicker too but i guess she's still on that crazy diet
ice said on 10/Jun/07
A size 12??? She doesn't look that thick. That's what I wear. For Beyonce, I think about a size 8. Remember, she wears her clothes tight, so a tight size 8, size 10 maximum.
Sarah said on 8/Jun/07
I seen her in concert and i agree with lisa, she is looks about a size 12. :/ Not really THAT curvy.
lisa said on 7/Jun/07
I saw her in topshop in london and there is no way she is 5'6, im about 5'7 and even in heels she looked quite small. She also looked a lot slimmer then I had expected considering that she is supposed to be really curvy.
Queona said on 3/Jun/07
Beyonce and kelly look really pretty in this picture.

Thanks TheJerk, I was just wondering what was it I wasn't seeing, because Beyonce and Diana Looked pretty much the same in that pic. As for the pic with Glenn, he said she was wearing heels, so yeah...
jasmine said on 20/May/07
i was eye to eye with her at yve saint laurent in beverly hills one day. it was a couple of years ago (only 13 at the time) but she looked to be the same height as me, and i was about 5'4.5 at the time... weird ...
Alex said on 16/May/07
5'6 barefoot then 5'8-5'9.5 in heels depending on the size of them.
Drew said on 16/May/07
Is she in heels in that picture? Gleen is a good two inches taller, making her 5'6", maybe 5'6.5" tops. But is that with or without heels? If she's without heels, the current estimate is dead on.
TheJerk said on 14/May/07
ice, in that picture it looks as though Diana Ross's waist is a bit higher meaning bigger heels are likely. That coupled with the huge fro help indicated they appear closer to equal than what reality would be. I know you want Rob to answer, but Im sure Rob would agree.

Saw Beyonce, standing one meter in front of me in Stockholm. she wore high-heels, looking 5'9''
ice said on 28/Apr/07
Editor Rob: If you know that Diana Ross has been listed at 5'4.5", How can you have Beyonce almost two inches taller? Is there something wrong with the photo/postures that I'm not seeing?

hi~ I recently came across this site.
I think i've read somewhere that Beyonce' is indeed about 5'6-5'7. She doesn't come across to be that tall, but not short either. In the video with Shakira, you never see them side by side unless it's on an angle..Because Shakira is so tiny, i'm sure they tweaked with camera angles and zoom to give it more of a visual balance. next to 5' Shakira, anything about 5'5 would be significantly taller right??
Anonymous said on 15/Apr/07
Rayeesha?? If you are 5'10, there is no way you made yourself look only slighly taller than your 4'11 friend by simply dropping your hip, maybe by dropping to your knees. She has clearly stated 5'6" before and by your estimation I would assume she would have to be 5'9" and clearly there is no way she is this tall (look at any pics). Shakira is only 4'11" - this site lists her way too high, google her. That means Beyonce at 5'6" (I think possibly slightly under 5'5.5) is 7" taller than her. I guess if you thought Shakira was 5'2", that might be why you thought Beyonce to be 5'9".
Rayeeesha said on 12/Apr/07
I met Beyonce in Chicago and she only had on 2 inch heels, and I had on 1inch shoeson and im 5`10 without shoes and she was the exact same height as me I was surprised and her hands were the same as mine too lmao but yea in that pic it looks like shes bending her legs a bit and dropping her hip, I do it all the time, ive made myself look only slightly taller then my friend whos 4`11 and omg Beyonce next to shakiriah the behind the scenes look u see Beyonce towering over her thats why they would always put one infront of the other or one behind they were never exactly together.

Glenn, you look tall here. Its also a really good looking picture of you. I got to say before this listing I thought Beyonce was quite tall like 5-9 or 5-10.

I have seen beyonce legs on tv show recently park 106 and one time they loooked so short and only looks long when she wears high heels.

Glenn looks very happy in this photo lol. Plus the girls are smiling, something uncommon in Glenn's photos.

To be honest though, judging by this picture she looks 5'6 at best, maybe a little under like 5'5.75"
Jameson said on 6/Mar/07
My friend got a picture with her and he's 5'0" like me. He said she seemed between 5'9.5" and 5'11". She was probably wearing high heels.
Reet Petite said on 2/Mar/07
I think Beyonce is perhaps slightly shorter than 5'6 because in the picture she looks about 2 inches shorter than Glenn but we dont know if she was wearing heels or not (which she probably was). I've always thought when standing up against other celebrities (if you take away the height of her heels) she looks around 5'4-5'5, and can come across as 5'7 with her heels on.
SpontaneousReactionary said on 2/Mar/07
Haha you all are getting so worked up about Ryans comment on tall/short girls.
Catwalk models are tall so people watching can see them better. You'll notice other models who model things like makeup etc. don't have to be so tall. There's a reason for that.
They are thin to show off the way the fabric moves etc.
Remember that modeling is about showing off the product, not the model who happens to be modeling it. Besides, if it were a shorter woman, who seem to tend to be more curvy (which is extremely attractive in moderation :P) that would be more distracting to people watching, and they might not end up focusing on the clothes anymore.
Also personally I find many catwalk models I happen to see pictures of in the paper unnatractive. Maybe that has to do with the fact they're wearing freaky clothes and makeup some a lot of the time, though. ;)
So the bottom line is: I wouldn't call a woman unattractive just because she's a little on the tall side. We all have our preferences, but there's no reason to insult girls who are different from what you prefer. It's like preferring blondes. Just because you like them doesn't mean that brunnettes are automatically bad. Ryan was responding to Sarah who was dissing any girls who are shorter, like his gf. LOL he was basically defending his girl. LOL Anything wrong with that? The preference probably also depends on what the guy in question's height is himself. If he's 6'4" he probably wouldn't mind a girl who's 5'9 as much. ;)
Some like tall, some like petite. It's okay.

Anyway, Beyonce ain't bad, but Shakira (4'11") is somethin' else. ;)

Hey Ryan, Sorry you have a hang-up about your own height...if women taller than 5'4 are unattractive and you think most men agree with you, how come all the supermodels are all at least 5'9 or 5'10 (exclude Kate Moss), all the Miss Universes and Miss Worlds are all that or taller and even Playboy Playmates are usually about 5'7 or 5'8??????????? That makes you look stupid and like a real jackass!!! Can you say Hee-haw??

Well, celebs lie. Jessica says she is 5'4, when she is about 5'2. Glenn met Ashley and said about 5'5.

Okay even if she didn't have platforms on she would still be at least an 1/2 to an inch taller than Ashlee and Ashlee Simpson is 5'6 not only did it say it in In Touch magazine but Jessica said it at the VMAs this year when an interviewer asked how tall they both were.
Brad said on 13/Dec/06
Eva is 5' 1". She uses Susan Lucci camera angles to let the public think she is taller. They did that on Dynasty & 90210 a lot.
~Nate~ said on 10/Dec/06
Did anyone notice in the Ashlee Beyonce Pic that Beyonce had a platform on the front of her heels giving her more height? It is possible that Ashlee is 5'6 as well if they were both wearing the same sized heel and if Ashlee had a platform on her heel as well which she didn't.
ice said on 10/Dec/06
Jeremi: Eva Longoria is max 5'1, and Ashlee Simpson is max 5'5. The most I can see Beyonce at is 5'5.5" The last time I saw her on Oprah (She was presenting her clothing line) Oprah had her by 1/2 an inch, but Beyonce had the bigger heels.
Brad said on 9/Dec/06
Nah, she held her own walking with her man at The Bellagio when I saw her. I guess she had on the big heels, but, she can't be less than 5' 6". Getting married before xmas down in the islands.

I don't know. Beyonce says 5'6, but so much evidence has presented her to be 5'5. This pic with Glenn, Glenn's estimation, the pic with T.I, the pic with Usher, the video with Usher, the Crazy in Love video with Jay-z, My cousin's claim (she met met)... The list goes on and on. I don't see 5'6 for her.

5' 6". Nobody lies to Oprah. She doesn't appreciate b.s..

[Editor Rob: are we talking about a recent interview? her dreamgirl buddy twas the one saying "i'm 5-2, beyonce 5-6, some other person 5-9". Beyonce herself claims 5ft 6.5 at start of career, so in 5ft 6 range]
~Nate~ said on 7/Dec/06

LOL, come on Darren, 5'3?! I'm not saying you're lying, because maybe someone did tell you that. But, do you really it? She's AT LEAST average height. I say 5'5.

BTW, nice downgrade Rob. A whole 1/4 inch. LOL

Eva Longoria is more like 5'0", if that. I think Beyonce is about 5'5.5". Maybe only 5'5. In the JLo Beyonce pic she looks 5'5 since I think JLo is about 5'4" (and not taller).

most likely 5'6 1/2 or 5'7. dont be fooled by her wide hips and curves that balance her height. if she were shorter, with those hips, she'd look way shorter, especially next to jay-z. (deja vu video). and besides, her parents are exceptionally tall.

OK!! When are we all going to realize that a 4 inch stiletto doesn't give someone 4 inches of height! Thats impossible unless its a platform.. MEANING if her and T.I. are the same height when she has her four inchers on, without them she's maybe 5'5.5-5'6 a four inch stiletto gives you 2-2.5 inches of height not 4 unless its a platform! LOL
Anonymous said on 26/Sep/06
I say 5'4" would be about right. Glenn is 5'8" and with heels she looks to be 1-2 inches shorter than him.
KJ said on 3/Sep/06
I agree with meaghan because if you look at Justin Timberlake's height on this site, it will show you some links to pictures with him, Beyonce and TI. Here, Beyonce's gotta be wearin some 4 inch heels and seems to be on TI's eyesight. The site lists TI as 5'8 so if you take 4 inches off Beyonce you get 5'4 so either TI's height listing is crap or Beyonce's is, but I think Beyonce's is because singers are usually short like Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears and Christina Aguilera.
beyonce fan said on 31/Aug/06
i would say that she is about 5'6 or 5'7 tops. People that are tall generally have longer torsos or longer legs. Or both. In the picture of her on the beach barefoot she appears to be of average height. Her legs are not that long and her torso isn't that long either. If you had a personal trainer, heels, and specially made clothes you could look a whole lot taller too. Then again that's not a good pic because, the floor is not even. If you notice, there is a slight hill where she is standing, so its not an even calculation. Also, her shoulders are slightly above his elbows and they are nowhere near shoulder to shoulder. I'm 5'4.5 and my ex is 6.1, standing next to him I don't look like a dwarf; I'm just a whole lot shorter.Hips don't have anything to do with height measurement. Wideness will make you appear wide, not short.Something else Inoticed is that her head is slanted and so are her shoulders, so you're not going to get a good view or an accurate measurement.
Brad said on 25/Aug/06
5' 7" plus adding on heels and she's up there with Jay-Z. That'll be a cool wedding. Her rock will be huge. Both are very nice people to meet. Down to earth.

Shea: Yeah, I thought the same too. I'd say she's more like 5'7"-5'7.5"...Especially in her new video "Deja Vu" (great by the way!) she has some scenes with Jay-Z and she's barefoot. She doesn't look a dwarf next to him, surprisingly. Either he's not really 6'2" (or at least that's the height I hear often about him), or she's a good 5'7"-5'7.5" at least!
meaghan said on 10/Aug/06
i don't think alicia keys it 5'5. i think she is 5'3 / 5'4. i thought beyonce is about 5'5?? and it's not like she is wearing really high shoes.
Love story said on 5/Aug/06
The zannotti shoes bey wears are known for their heel length which is from 4-6 inches. I know because i own and sell them.bey also exaggerates everything so her claiming to be 5'6 means she is shorter then that.

Angelica said on 30/Jul/06
My point is not so much about the heels (I don't even really wear heels, and I'm not "too tall" for them either, I just find a lot of them uncomfortable), but about the perception that there's something freakish about being tall.
Anoynmous started his sentence with the statement, "I totally agree with Ryan". If that's the case than he agrees with the line "I think its unatractive for a women to be taller than 5.4. Everthing is big, your hands, your feet.".

Then he explained further why it is unattractive to be tall, claiming they can't wear heels. I'm not arguing about whether a tall woman looks good in heels, I have no opinion on that matter. I just think it's a little peculiar to say that an average woman looks good in heels, but a tall women (whether she's wearing heels or not) doesn't look good period. I say that because heels offer a lot of the things that tall women have. Yes, heels certainly do "change the proportion of the body", but a tall women's body also is often proportioned a little differently than someone of average or short height.

However, that was a minor part of what I am trying to express. My overall feelings are that even if a tall women and heels didn't mix, I think it's kind've sad that she can never be seen as pretty because of that basis alone. For instance I think one of history's most beautiful and refined women was Jackie O, and she was close to 5'9. I wouldn't see her as any less classy if she turned out to look awful in 4 inch heels.

Anyway I'm not trying to type a drown-out essay on this, I just want to make sure that I'm interpreted correctly. I also agree with Leonari, "men are as shallow as women."

5'5" isn't particularly short (unless you're talking runway skeletons, er, models).

5'2" is short; 5'3" has become short (even though it's still the supposed average). 5'5"-5'6" seems average these days, based on what I see.

High heels not just only "make the woman taller" they change the proportion of the body. The legs do seem longer if a woman wears high heels.

by the way: Who does really think a "model" is attractive? In my opinion the attractive celebrities-woman are actresses and singer. And they are usually between 160 and 168cm.

Femke said on 30/Jun/06
Angelica I think he is right in some way. Because I am a tall girl, and when I wear heels, it makes me look like a nerd. It is not sexy, My best friend is 5.2 and she is very curved and when she wears 2inch heels, it looks sooo beautiful, it makes me jealous. But you know, tall women can be sexy too in heels, but not very big heels...Be proud of yourself, thats all I have to say
Angelica said on 29/Jun/06
Did I read that right? "My girlfriend is 5.3, it is a perfect height for a woman. When she's wearing heels its sexy, but when a girl is taller than 5.6 its not sexy at all to wear high heels."

That has got to be one of the most shallow things that I've ever heard. A woman is automatically unattractive, just because you don't think that they look good in a certain kind of shoe?

Also it sounds almost like a contradiction to me. What's one of the most obvious things that heels do for a woman? They raise their height. So why is it then, if a woman is 5'10 in stilettos then she looks great, but if she's 5'10 in real life there's something wrong with her?

That would be like if a woman with smaller lips pumped her lips up with collagen so that they would appear full and plump... and then she supposedly looks great. But if a woman naturally has full pouty lips, why is it that she's being devalued for it? Why is artifical height superior to natural height?

This comment is to Ryan; as a tall girl I'm slightly offended. LOL. Seriously, though. If it were unattractive for women to be tall, a-GOD wouldn't have made it possible and b-why is it that models are all tall and, mind you, they are some of the most knock out gorgeous people you'll find. Besides, at 5'10 I wear a size 8.5 (American size) shoe and my hands are the same size or even smaller than my friends who are like 5'4 and shorter.

Angelica said on 20/Jun/06
Tall doesn't necessarily equal attractive, there are many tall women who are absolutely stunning and there are women of smaller stature who are equally beautiful. Tall is a feature, that a lot of people consider to be an interesting feature, but of course it's not the only feature you use to evaluate a person's looks. However, Ryan is honestly the very first person I've ever heard of to be disgusted by height. Especially when referring to a lady who's just over 5'4... which is an extremely typical height to be. Mostly in today's American culture, a grown women isn't considered "tall" until their a minimum of 5'8 or 9.

Jay-z is 6'2... when you see him and beyonce next to each other she is about 2- 3 inches shorter in heels which would make her about 5'7
ds said on 7/May/06
I know Michelle is 5'9" and Kelly I think is 5'8". Beyonce always has the tallest heels. 167 cm for her I think.
J. said on 5/May/06
Rob, what do you make of the heights of the other two Destiny's Children? Kelly Rowland? Michelle Williams? Both ladies have been listed and described as 5'8"+.

[Editor Rob: they make glenn look tall remember! Nah, kelly does have an inch, not sure about 1.5 inches though on beyonce]
ice said on 27/Apr/06
Only in a pair of very nice heels (and generous) would beyonce be 5'8. She is most definitely under 5'6. I still say 5'5. Some say 5'5.5. But not what's on this page.
nikki said on 23/Apr/06
on vh1 celeb fittest bodies, they said that she came in at 5'4. You gotta realize that she is in heels ALL the time. You never seen her in regular shoes, like sneakers. She is teeny, plus I met her in person too and I'm 5'7 and a half and she was almost up to me in high heels, but when she takes them off, its another story.
jess said on 16/Apr/06
ive met beyonce and im 5.6 an shes taller dan me so id say 5.7 or 5.8
Anonymous said on 15/Apr/06
I'd say no more than 5'4"- in the Pepsi ad with Pink and Britney Pink looked like a giant next to her. Plus she's teeny.
Kats said on 12/Apr/06
Back again--Glenn thinks he was more like 5'10 in that picture. So if I go by my last calculations except give Glenn an inch, I need to assume she is 5'5.5-5'6. In which case, I can see why Rob would not downgrade her--If she simply looks 5'6 there you could say a half an inch (putting her at 5'6.5) is easy to mistake. I was purposely, what I felt to be rather conservative with my guess of 5'4.5-5'5 when I thought Glenn was 5'9 there. (Because I knew me being conservative still made her noticably shorter than 5'6.5.) With this new revelation of Glenn's probable height there, I am now inclined to say "Well, at first I didn't give add enough for her heels." As I said on another page, I'm a booger, hehe. It's just that I still find it hard to believe she is quite 5'6.5. She certainly doesn't look short. But I feel 5'5-5'5.5.

Sorry for the rambling lately. Peace.

Giselle, I personally don't forget about Kelly. I've looked for her twice on this site. How do we really know she is 5'8? It's like with most celebrities... how do we really know what anyone is? It's hard until we go over and over comparisons and rely on a select few who have their height accurately pegged.
Kats said on 8/Apr/06
[Editor Rob: I think Sly lent glenn his elevator shoes for a few minutes ;-) Seriously, sometimes you can account posture for these things, other times not. This is rare occasion glenn fully tall beside ladies and she, in heels no doubt, looks like a 5ft 5er]

Hehe, okay. I have wondered if she doesn't have as great of posture as Glenn. Perhaps if she was upright she'd be 1.5 inches shorter only and she's in probably shoes that make her 2.5 inches taller, so she's 4 inches shorter than 5'9 shoes-wearing-Glenn (I'm assuming he isn't in shoes more than an inch.) We must remember he said he is 5'7 3/4 as well, so maybe he's 5'8 3/4 there? Although, that's very much nitpicking, isn't it? :) So she may be 5'5. If her shoes only give her a 2 inch increase (which I doubt), she could be 5'5.5. And I doubt better posture could make her less than 1.5 inches shorter. Since you like to be conservative, I'd mark her down to 5'5.5 or 5'6 now. I'll continue to believe 5'4.5-5'5 though. :)

Thing is we don't know the heights of the others in the pic and she could be wearing big heels and they could be in flats. I'm about 5'4 or 5'5 and when I wear heels and the women around me wear flats I feel really tall and Beyonce is not really towering over the other woman. However I am just presenting some arguments and not claiming Beyonce is 5'4 because I believe she is close to 5'6 maybe 5'5.5
Alex said on 6/Apr/06
DS so basically its 5'4 the average. .2 isn't going to make a difference, haha.

Beyonce looks 5'5.5 with Glenn.
ice said on 5/Apr/06
It's possible to be shorter than your parents. Believe me. I know! My mom is average height, and my father is above average. What am I? 5'2 area. As for the pic above, beyonce isn't leaning that much. The other too are. Plus, i'm not getting 5'5 just from that. Glenn estimated that, my cousin estimated that, and the Usher pic shows that.
ds said on 5/Apr/06
The average height for a female is 5'3.8" I checked this year.
mzcarmelo said on 5/Apr/06
I wonder how a child born to parents with a 6'31/2 height (father) and and 5'63'4 mother could ever be shorter than 5'6. just something to think about people.
J. said on 5/Apr/06
Well, it seems as if everyone is ignoring the difference in posture in the pic above. As Rob stated, Glenn is standing nicely erect while the three ladies are clearly leaning. Hence, why they all look shorter. I personally think Beyonce to be somewhere between 5'4" and 5'6", but what do I know? :-)
Kats said on 5/Apr/06
Rob, I'm kind of getting antsy for you to change her height to 5'5. :)

I think she's more like 5'4.5 (exactly average female height according to some sources) based on the picture with Glenn. But I'd settle for her being listed as 5'5. This also calls for downgrades of others like Lopez, Spears...
ice said on 2/Apr/06
Editor Rob, what is your take on this? With that Usher pic, Glenn's claim, and the photo above, what do you think?

[Editor Rob: I think Sly lent glenn his elevator shoes for a few minutes ;-) Seriously, sometimes you can account posture for these things, other times not. This is rare occasion glenn fully tall beside ladies and she, in heels no doubt, looks like a 5ft 5er]
ice said on 2/Apr/06
barrymore, she doesn't even try to claim 5'7 (170 cm). LOL
nick said on 22/Mar/06
i've seen here shes never 5'8 or 5'7, shes around closer to 5'3 or 5'4 if anything
ice said on 21/Mar/06
To Kats: I'm with you! Even if she was wearing flats (Glenn said heels), she still couldn't be 5'6.5" Glenn would be 5'9 in shoes, and she does look clearly 2.5 inches shorter. For all of the people thinking she's tall, let's say she's only two inches shorter. that would put her at 5'7 WITH shoes, making her 5'6 MAX in barefeet. Either way, her listing on this site is too high.
Anonymous said on 21/Mar/06
According to this picture with Glenn, she is 5'4.5" without shoes. No way on earh 5'6".
Kats said on 20/Mar/06
Glenn is 5'8 without shoes, right? So he's probably 5'9 in the picture. Beyonce looks about 2 1/2 inches shorter to me. So 5'6.5... WITH shoes. I doubt her shoes are a mere 1 inch, and Glenn believes they were heels. I'll give them 2 inches of height increase at the least. Now we're at 5'4.5 If I'm wrong and she's only 2 inches shorter than him, well then she is 5'5 AT THE MOST.
ice said on 15/Mar/06
Actually, glenn said they were wearing heels
Brittany said on 14/Mar/06
beyonce is almost 5'7 duh... she is a little bit shorter than me and I am 5' an inch...duh...she told me 5'6 and a half almost to the 5'7 mark..besides she had on flats that day..i am referring to the pic with glenn
kate said on 12/Mar/06
She is 5'8 hello!
ice said on 11/Mar/06
well, according to glenn she looked "5'4ish". So, I'm believing my guesses at the moment.
ds said on 8/Feb/06
Actually upon meeting Britney I can def say she is 164cm...above her listed height maybe even 5'5" I've met a lot of celebs and Britney seems like she's above her listed height...but newyz we're talking about 169 cm...judging from everything. I think J.lo is 165ish so that would make Beyonce at 167-168cm...but who knows...IMO 5'6" on the dot...
anonymous said on 3/Feb/06
my aunt met her before and my aunt is 6'2 and she knows height and she said beyonce was about 5'7, and she was wearing 3 inch heels
ice said on 2/Feb/06
Actually, the more I come back to this site, this picture makes sense. Someone on this board said they saw them (Beyonce and gang) in concert and they were short, then Oprah was taller than all of them, my cousin says she saw beyonce and they were the same height(my cousin is a hair under 5'5"), then in her crazy in love video she had on mega heels dancing next to jay-z and she was STILL much shorter. The problem is she's very well proportioned which makes her look taller. she's probably 5'5, j-lo (5'3.5) - (5'4), britney spears and halle berry 5'4. Now all of their listings make sense like this... Oh yeah, didn't Shakira claim that her and britney were similar in height? hmmm
ice said on 30/Jan/06
I take beyonce's back. I give her 5'5... Damn my cousin "claimed" she met her, and they were the same height. I guess she was right.
ice said on 30/Jan/06
Here's my guess: Beyonce 5'5.5, Jennifer Lopez 5'4, Britney Spears 5'4, Halle Berry 5'4.5
