Lara Stone was born to a Dutch mother and an English
father in the town of Geldrop, the Netherlands and
grew up in Mierlo, Netherlands.First discovered in the
Paris Metro when she was 12, she then went on to
participate in the Elite Model Look competition at age
15. She became the primary choice for editorials and
advertising campaigns after signing with IMG in 2006.
Lara is not a fan of the runway because of her
unusually small feet of someone of her size. Because
the shoes are usually too big for her, she sometimes
goes down the runway thinking "Do not fall, do not
fall!" (from Vogue Paris interview Feb 09). Lara Stone
was made Models.com #1 on the Top 50 List in
February 2010. In October 2013, joined L'Oreal as
their latest ambassador.
