Lara Stone Wanted To Be A Garbage Man, Says Nigella Lawson Makes Her 'Drool'

Lara Stone is one of the most successful models in the world (at a size 4/6!), the face of Calvin Klein, French Vogue covergirl many times over (she’s also outspoken and smart and ridiculously beautiful). …And we may have known none of this if she followed her girlhood dreams of becoming a garbage man.

(They didn’t die, fortunately.)
