Models have always known for their above average height compared to typical people. For female models, their average height usually ranges from 5ft 8in (173 cm) to 5ft 11in (180 cm) with the likes of Cindy Crawford, Gisele Bundchen, Karlie Kloss and Adriana Lima. However, this Russian model’s unbelievable height makes her tower everyone else. At 6ft 9in (205 cm), she set her sights to hold the world’s tallest model record!
This native Russian beauty, Ekaterina Lisina, 30, had already been crowned as the tallest woman in her home country.
Thanks to her amazing height, she gains fans from all over the world who are in impressed with her towering figure, especially men with a penchant for ‘Amazonian’ women
“The record is held at the moment by Amazon Eve and she is 6 ft 8 in, which is smaller than me, ” Ekaterina said
“I really want to be in the book of world records as the world’s tallest model. I also think I have a chance to be awarded the world’s longest legs. My legs are around 52.4 inches, which is longer than the current record holder.”
She also has been officially acknowledged for having the biggest feet size in Russia with a UK size 12 or a European size 47
Whenever she goes out, she often gets asked to pose for photos from strangers.
“I do like the attention and I hope after I get the title I am going to get even more attention!”
“I think my long legs can definitely help my modelling career because there aren’t so many models with such long legs”
Not surprisingly, she also plays basketball since she was 16 but then gave up the sport in 2014.
In 2008, she competed in the Olympics game where her team won a bronze
“I wanted to be a model since I was 16 but at that time I started my professional basketball career. Basically I had to choose between modelling and basketball and of course there was no question because with basketball I had talent,” she explained
Ekaterina’s height is a no surprise since her parents are extremely tall. Her father, Viktor Lisin whose stands at 6ft 5in (198 cm) said that he noticed that her daughter was unusually taller than average since birth. Her mother is also tall with height at 6ft 1in (188 cm).
Her older brother, Sergei who stands at 6ft 6in (198 cm) said that her younger sister used to get bullied at school as she was the tallest one.
However, she realised that her height was not something to be ashamed of
Sergei said, “She realised quite quickly that it gave her a huge advantage in a sport which she started doing professionally almost straight away.”
He added, “So I don’t think it was too uncomfortable for her. Also, because all of our family members are tall, not many of us felt uncomfortable about this fact.”
Even though her towering height gives her fame and world records, Ekaterina said her height made it difficult for her to go shopping for clothes
But then again, it was just one of the few downsides that she had to face for being tall. Now, she totally embraces her unique figure.
“I only really realised I was attractive when I was about 24 years old. I always had an athletic body and was always much taller than everyone else my age. But then I realised that being tall is very attractive and that I got a lots of attention from men. I am so comfortable with my body now.”
“I feel really comfortable in my body right now and I don’t have any problems being taller than everyone else. I love it,” Ekaterina said
