“Everyone was in panic. In the middle was myself and did not want to die”
The model Lara Stone speaks in our series, “I have a dream” about her fear of flying.
The model Lara Stone
I’ve never dreamed of becoming a model. As a child I was bullied and insulted as ugly. But then, when I was 13, my agent in a model of the Paris Metro has responded. The modeling was my job – and I began to dream of what could be possible.
When I was the first time for a job in New York, I saw Natalia Vodianova on an oversized billboard in Times Square on a Calvin Klein billboard. She radiated a great power and looked so sexy. I wanted too! Meanwhile, this dream has come true: now you see me on exactly this oversized billboard.
When you realize that just a dream has become reality, it feels as if you were back in a dream. It is a very rare and wonderful feeling.
