Dua Lipa (meaning 'Love' in Albania) is a successful singer, who was signed with Warner Music Group in 2015 and now in 2022 has amassed a huge following around the globe!
She is clearly on the taller side for a woman, and when out and about next to her taller than average model friends she holds her own, blending in perfectly and looking around the same height as them.
But how tall is she really? Well, let's investigate her height claims and compare her to some other celebs to find the answer to this question!
How Tall is She Really?
After investigating Dua Lipa's height, it is obvious that she is tall for a woman, and wakes up at slightly over 5'8.25" (173.4 cm), then drops to around 5'8" (172.7 cm) for the majority of the day.
Dua Lipa is listed at 5'8" or 1.73 m on Google and IMDb
Dua Lipa has claimed her height on Twitter before. For instance,
During her early teenage years she wanted to grow and she tried her hand at basketball, and in an interview for billboard (1) in reference to this she mentions that:
"I thought It would help me grow"...yet this didn't work, and "The second I did quit I did grow"
This is further referenced in another interview for 'CLASH' (2), where she mentions that aged 16 she grew - "I’m now 5ft 8".
Her Height is Surprising
People are sometimes surprised at how tall Dua appears, for instance, one Twitter user (3) mentioned in relation to a photo of Korean singer Hwasa and Dua Lipa, that "dua lipa is so much taller we-"
Height When Next to Celebs
Let's compare Dua Lipa's height next to 3 celebs to gain a better understanding of how tall she really is.
Anwar Hadid 6'1" (185.4 cm)
The couple have been pictured together out and about in New York on various occasions. For instance, when they got matching neon manicures in October 2019, where they are wearing similar sized-footwear and there is a 5 inch height difference.
On another occasion, on the 07/17/2020 they were also pictured out and about in New York, and after accounting for Dua's half-inch footwear advantage the height difference looks closer to 4.5 inches.
Compared to Anwar, Dua appears to be 5'8"-5'8.5" tall.
Taylor Swift 5'9.25" (175.9 cm)
When the two singers were pictured together at the Amazon Prime Day Concert in July 2019,
Taylor has about a half-inch footwear advantage over Dua and appears to be around 1.5 inches taller than her.
This translates to Dua Lipa appearing 5'8.25" next to Taylor Swift.
Bella Hadid 5'8" (172.7 cm)
When the close friends are pictured together, they look very similar in height.
For instance, when pictured together in New York heading for Gigi Hadid's daughter's first birthday party, where they are wearing similar-sized footwear and look identical in height, and at Zayn Malik's birthday, New York City, 2020, where again, they are identical in height.
In another instance, on a night out in London (August 20) 2021, they also look identical in height.
So compared to Bella Hadid, Dua appears exactly 5'8" tall.
The Results - Compared to other celebs, Dua Lipa appears to be between 5'8"-5'8.5" tall.
