Lara Stone has revealed she was turned away from a modeling job after revealing she was pregnant.
The Dutch model made the bold decision to tell her booker that she’d recently found out she was pregnant, not wanting them to think bad of her if she appeared tired.
Having not even had a three-month scan yet, the blonde beauty, who is married to David Walliams, arrived to find she had been replaced on the shoot.
“I was really upset at the time,” Lara told The Evening Standard.
“I hadn’t yet had my three-month scan and I felt really vulnerable about everything. I no longer had a job. That was it — I had to just stop everything that I knew; the way my life was.”
Since giving birth to her and David’s child, Alfred, in May 2013, she admits it’s harder to fit into sample sizes.
“Once the baby was out,” she says, “I was like, ‘What the hell is going on?’ My arms don’t fit into my sweaters. I couldn’t get my jeans over my knees. I couldn’t find a bra that fitted me. I had body dysmorphia but the wrong way round."
“I’ve had a few meetings because when they hear pregnancy they freak out a bit,” she says. "So they need to see if I fit in their clothes.”
