Born on 20 December 1983 in the Netherlands, Lara was discovered on the Paris Metro while on vacation with her family when she was 14, then she took part in the Elite Model Look competition and even though she did not win, she impressed the executives and was signed to Elite Modelling Agency. She has gone on to appear on the cover of American, British, Chinese, Italian, Japanese, French, Russian, Turkey & Netherlands Vogue, i-D, French Numéro, V & W and she has appeared in editorials for Harper's Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Interview & many more. She has also appeared in ads for Calvin Klein, DKNY, Giorgio Armani, Prada & Louis Vuitton.

The thing I love the most about Lara is the bottom half of her face. Her whole face is beautiful but I love her jawline, her chin and lips and of course her gap tooth. Theses are the things that set her apart from other models, because I don't know any other models, that have her jawline mixed with all her other gorgeous features.

The first time I really took notice of Lara was when I saw her editorial in the March 2008 edition of French Vogue. This is when it dawned upon me how extremely beautiful her face is. The light was hitting her face perfectly and the hair and make-up was so simple yet really beautiful, this styling also went perfectly with the shoot. I just loved it.
