In August 2014, Hailey Baldwin held hands with her much taller best friend Kendall Jenner. They flaunted their long legs while trying to hail a cab in SoHo.

In her October 2019 cover interview for Vogue Australia, Hailey opened up about feeling “inferior” to her fellow model friends. She is a few inches shorter than models like Kendall Jenner and the Hadid sisters.

“My burn in the modeling industry has been slow and I’ve had to learn to be okay with that. I’m shorter than most of the girls. Even though I’m five-foot-eight, I’m not a runway girl and I totally used to feel inferior to some of my friends,” she said.

“Look at Kendall [Jenner] and Bells [Bella Hadid] and Gigi [Hadid] … they’re all tall and doing every runway. For a while, there was a part of me that didn’t know if I could have the career I wanted if I couldn’t do runway. I don’t think that anymore.”

“You can make it work and not have to do runway, and I’ve done a good job with that,” Hailey added. “I’m proud of myself for building a more commercial career that worked for me and being confident about it.”

Her husband, Justin Bieber, measures around 5’9 and is about 2 inches taller than his wife. That’s of course only when she’s not wearing high heels.

Hailey’s famous female relatives are also taller than her. “Ireland [Baldwin] is 6’2 and I’m 5’8. She’s like my basketball boyfriend and I’m her shawty,” Justin Bieber’s wife tweeted about her first cousin Ireland Eliesse Baldwin.

Unlike her older diva half-sister Kim Kardashian, Kendall is a lot more grounded. She even tries out public transportation once in a while.

The reality-star-turned-model wore casual clothes sans makeup but still looked pretty and stylish in her comfy streetwear ensemble.

While Kendall was all about comfort, Hailey Baldwin, who is the daughter of actor Stephen Baldwin, opted for a fiercer casual look. Her simple tee-and-shorts combo was styled with a cool moto jacket, amping up the edginess of the look.

These cool kids definitely know how to rock street style. We love their shoe choices, too!
