A Model’s Journey: Overcoming Height Norms in Fashion

Appearing on an EverGreen Podcasts episode on January 28, 2021, Jaime King reflected on her modeling career, highlighting the influence of Kate Moss in paving the way for her and other models who didn’t meet the traditional height requirement for supermodels, which was a minimum of five feet ten inches.

Kate Moss actually really paved the way for me to even be able to be a supermodel at all, because you had to be five-ten, like a minimum of five-ten. I’m five foot eight and a half…I was like, “Oh, I’m never going to be a Cindy Crawford or a Claudia Schiffer, or an Evangelista or a Naomi.” I just thought, “If I could only grow taller.” I knew that you had to be a certain height to be a supermodel. When Kate Moss and Jaime Rishar, these women came in, and were thinner and waif-ier, then it actually gave me the opportunity to do that. Kate’s, what, five-seven, I think? Something like that. It’s kind of crazy that we have to think about something in inches and heights.
