Dong Lei, a 20-year-old Chinese model from Anhui Province, China, has become an overnight internet sensation due to her spectacularly long legs. She became famous after an appearance in the most recent episode of Ai Shang Chao Model, a Chinese reality TV show.

Measuring 5 foot 11 inches in height, Dong Lei’s fantastic limbs are 45 inches long. She said her height and legs are due to her genetics.

Dong’s father stands 6 foot 1 inches and her mother stands 5 foot 7, taller than your average Chinese person. Dong Lei was reportedly already 5 foot 9 inches in height when she was 16 years old.


Dong Lei’s legginess got her into her current modeling agency and she’s now taken Chinese internet by storm. She aspires to be a successful supermodel in the future.

But amazingly, Dong Lei does not hold the world record for the woman with the longest legs. That honor goes to Russian Svetlana Pankratova, whose limbs measure an incredible 51.9 inches. She made headlines back in 2013 when it emerged she was working as an assistant basketball coach at a Virginia high school.
