This Chinese Supermodel’s Legs Are 45 Inches Long, And Yes That’s As Tall As Your Average 7-Year-Old Boy

Dong Lei is only 20 years old, but she’s already taken the world (and subsequently the Internet) by storm with her 45 inch-long legs. To put that into even more perspective aside from the 7-year-old boy image, that’s longer than a meter.

Hailing from east China, Dong Lei was a trainee teacher prior to her pursuing a career as a supermodel and was only “discovered” after entering the Chinese television show called “Supermodel.” According to Daily Mail,

Her parents encouraged her to train as a teacher at university, but after graduating she decided to enter a modelling competition in

Beijing and was later signed by a modelling agency.

She gained fame across China after entering ‘Supermodel’ and has earned herself the nickname ‘tui tui’, meaning long legs.

She said: ‘I find it incredible that I have suddenly become an internet celebrity!’

‘I really enjoy my life and work at this moment, I fly around a lot and my work is also partly like a holiday. I will work hard to succeed going forward and hope for the best.’
