Normally they don't go for girls under 5ft7, if you're under that you would probably have to have an amazing face and walk
They go for slim girls usually, but some agencies have plus size models too
I think they will always look for bone structure to, you can be tall but not have a face that is interesting or photogenic. Fashion sense is probably an important part in it too, they'll look for someone who knows how to dress to suit their shape and is confident

You can't be a catwalk model at 5 ft 5. The only catwalk model in the history of time who has been 5 ft 5 is Devon Aoki, and she got in because she knew Kate Moss and Kate Moss had a lot of pulling power with the agency, and pressured them to sign her.
I would imagine the agencies which have models who are 5 ft 5 are the kind of agencies that have both fashion and commercial models.
