6. Lucy Clarkson
It all began with Lucy Clarkson’s father who first saw the potential in his daughter. “You’d make a great Lara Croft” her father said, as Lucy Clarkson took yet another media appearance as the world number one cyber hottie. A year later it was the turn of Eidos Interactive to recognize that the model from Yorkshire Rotherham had the requisite attitude, looks and – let’s face it – physical dimensions to fill the star of the series Tomb Raider “famous boots”.
Lucy, of course, was delighted, because she also became an instant cover girl, something not easy to achieve for models. The image of Lara Croft is admired all over the world no matter the occasion or place.

Lucy was even criticized by other models and professionals in the business for her body shape, “I was in South Africa on a modelling job and they told me to lose weight. I could not believe that I was on my way home. And that’s when I got the call telling me that I was the new Lara. It was these new fantastic. It is a high-level task and one of the few that allows you to keep your breasts and buttocks.” Lucy stated.
Lucy Clarkson’s mother played a role in her career too, she was the first to sing her in a modelling contest That Elite Model Agency hosted for a toothpaste and a newspaper commercial. With no experience in the game she was one of twelve winners from a total of 16000 candidates.
Little by little she got noticed and did not take long for offers to pour in, fact that made Lucy a favourite of famous British designer Vivienne Westwood. Her sexy curves also gave her to opportunity to pose for lingerie and swimwear photo shoots, which later became Lucy’s favourite line of work, preferring it over fashion work saying that “They pay the best money!”
Lucky Clarkson said that the best perks of modelling are money and travel, and the not-so-good parts of it? “No doubt, other models. They can be unbelievably bitchy. All the time I work, I made friends with two of them. Generally, I prefer the men”.
That being said on male model managed to marry Lucy and they are living together now. “He’s obsessed with games and loves Lara. Well, now he has a Lara of his own!”
