Lara Stone - Lara Stone Didn't Have Model Ambitions

Lara Stone wanted to be a "garbage man" when she was growing up.

The Dutch-born supermodel - who has fronted campaigns for the likes of Calvin Klein, Givenchy and Hugo Boss - didn't think a career in The Fashion industry could be "an actual job", as she expected to get married and be a stay-at-home mum.

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!'"

Despite being discovered by a model agency when she was just 15, Lara admitted people used to think she was "ugly and weird" and suggested she sorted out her now famous gap in the middle of her teeth.

She added to Stylist magazine: "People found me ugly and weird looking. All those years of that whole insecurity thing just makes you feel horrible.

"People were like, 'Oh, maybe we can change your teeth', and I thought that was going a bit far. You have to be really strong in this job and realise that you are your own boss and if someone tells you to do something, you don't have to do it. I really like my teeth."
