Doutzen Kroes Height

"I know it's a cliche, but the sun makes me happy. When you can feel the sunshine on you, you feel better and happier, and naturally, every human being needs the sun."

~ Doutzen Kroes

Famous Dutch model and actress, Doutzen Kroes is a big name in the modeling world. She has been one of the highest-paid models of all time, was Victoria's Secret Angel, and has graced the cover of various prestigious magazines -- like in 2013, she became the first model to land four different solo international covers of Vogue's September issue in a single year. 

In short, Doutzen isn't known as the "Helen of Troy of advertising" in the fashion world for nothing.

Where height is concerned, Wikipedia and list Ms. Kroes' height at 5'10½ (179) cm. The rest of her stats go something like these:

HAIR: Blonde, EYES: Blue, BUST: 34½, WAIST: 24½, HIPS" 34½, SHOE 10

Now it is common knowledge that in the modeling world heights of the models are inflated ever so slightly -- Models and their agencies often add an inch or two to the models' heights. Why? Perhaps to make them look even more impressive.

Heidi Klum once said that she is actually 5 feet 9 inches tall but she adds half an inch more to her height because everyone else lies about their height, so why not her? Why not indeed?

We think this quote applies to Ms. Kroes' height as well. After taking a careful look at her and comparing her height to that of people like Rihanna (5'8"), Gal Gadot (5'9"), and Karlie Kloss (6'2"), we think that Ms. Kroes looks exactly of the same height as Gal Gadot -- who is actually a very tall woman.

We think, whether knowingly or unknowingly, Ms. Kroes' height has been increased exactly by an inch.

The real height of Doutzen Kroes is

5ft 9½ or 176 cm

"I feel I'm such a big part of that insecurity that some girls might have because of my job, that girls think they have to be that picture. And even boys, they think that that picture exists, and it's so frustrating because I don't look like that picture - I wake up not looking like that picture."
