At the age of 15 Lara Stone competed in the Elite Model Look competition. She did not win but impressed Elite executives enough to get a contract with Eilite Modeling Agency. The Dutch model was convinced by her mother to go to Paris pursue modeling after getting expelled form school. Things didn’t work out in Paris but after signing with IMG things picked up. Ricardo Tisci chose her to open Givenchy’s Autumn/Winter 2006 haute couture show, which lead to more work with Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Lanvin, Miu Miu, Fendi and lot more designers. Lara Stone is worth $4 million.
