An agent spotted Lara on the Paris Metro in 1995 while on holiday with her family. Ah, sweet serendipity! She was 12. Lara's mother has said she began wearing tight, provocative clothing by the age of 10-11:

My mother tells me of when I was 10 or 11 and I'd wear really tight, short skirts and crop tops. All the local men would wolf whistle and stop and stare, but I didn't realize why at the time.

Lara was expelled from school for "rude" behavior toward her teachers.

This chance encounter apparently led to some modeling assignments. In any event, it spurred her interest in the fashion world. This led Lara to enter the Elite Model Look competition in 1999 when she was 15.

Elite Modelling Agency executives at the competition decided that Lara had "the look." Even though she didn't win the competition, they signed her up. She switched to IMG in 2006.

Lara has said that she does not like the runway. However, she loves being on magazine covers. She is famous for being the model to get the most international Vogue covers in one year, which is quite an accomplishment - and a sign Lara is a hard worker. Below is a sample of Lara's covers.

Lara is notorious for her bad behavior back in the day. She has said:
I used to love slapping people in the face when I was drunk. I thought it was really funny, so I did a lot of that. I'd pick fights with doormen and bouncers a lot. Ex-boyfriends. But nobody ever punched me back.
She also apparently has a violent temper backstage at shows.
