Ekaterina Lisina from Russia is the world’s tallest model.

She holds the record in the Guinness Book of Records for the longest legs of any woman in the world, with her left leg measuring 132.8cm (her right is slightly shorter at 132.2cm).

Lisina towers over most standing at 205.74cm. She is so tall her legs alone are just a few centimetres shy of what would be considered the height of an average woman.

Lisina is a former Olympic medal winning basketball player.

“When I was born, and my father saw me for the first time he said it was only legs,” she said.

It seems being extraordinarily tall runs in the family, with her brother coming in as the second tallest in the bunch standing 198.12cm, then her father at 195.58cm and finally her mother at 185.42cm.

According to Lisina by the time she was sixteen she was already towering over her classmates. Lisina is a professional model.
