5’6″ Model Kate Moss also with Storm Agency promoted her to be 5ft 10. Another fellow model friend of Kate Moss, french import Kati Tastet was promoted by her agency as being 5’8.5″ Tastet’s true height reported to be a mere 5’5″ inches tall.
THE INCREDIBLE SHRINKING MODEL FEARS
Designer Marc Jacob’s in an Elle magazine editorial was unconcerned about short model trend. When asked about Moss’s height Jacob’s replied, “I guess perfection comes in all shapes and sizes.”
However, Moss’s agency at the time Paul Rowlands of Women, complained the interest in little women has down sized his agency, sparking phone calls from girls who are “five feet tall” claiming to look like Kate Moss.
Despite the availability of petite models agencies aren’t likely to hire petite models. In fact, to date most modeling agencies voice recordings and receptionist inform you they are only interested in the standard 5’8″ and over model.
