Lara said that as a child she never thought that modelling could be an “actual job”, planning instead as a little girl to become a stay-at-home mother. We bet if Lara’s younger self could see her now, fronting campaigns for Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss and Givenchy, she’d be staggered.
She said: “Modelling wasn’t on my radar at all. I remember looking at all those amazing photos of Kate Moss but at first I didn’t realise it was an actual job. I came from a standard family – my mum was a stay-at-home mum and my dad worked. So you think that’s what your life is going to be; meet a nice man, get married and have some babies. I know when I was younger I wanted to do tonnes of different jobs. I used to come up with these crazy jobs to try and provoke my parents but they said you can be anything you want. I was like, ‘I want to be a garbage man’ and they were like, ‘That’s OK, we still love you!’”
We’re so glad Lara realised her ambition – she’s one of our favourite models.
