We're always keeping a close eye on birthday girl Lara Bingle's beauty looks, as we get a lot inspiration from the model turned businesswoman. Whether it's a statement red lip — always in the perfect orange/coral colour way — or textured (but not frizzy) hair, BFF and makeup artist Max May has done a stellar job at keeping her look both inspiring and attainable. Check out our gallery for some of Lara's best looks over the years, and a big, happy 26th birthday to our favourite Aussie bombshell.
It's no secret we're huge Lara Bingle fans here at BellaSugar Australia. We think she's the quintessential Aussie beauty with her minimal approach to makeup and gorgeous beach-blonde locks. So that's why we were so surprised last night as we sat innocently watching Being Lara Bingle, and Lara admitted she doesn't use fake tan. We know. Which begs the question, how does she get her signature warm and dewy glow? Well, she alternates between three multitasking products... Ready, set, glow!
Lara Bingle has been quietly dating designer Gareth Moody for a few months now and she’s slowly opening up about their relationship. In the new issue of Who, on sale now, the model and star of Being Lara Bingle posed for photos with Gareth that were taken at her 25th birthday dinner last Friday. Unlike Lara’s family and some of her friends, Gareth, who designs for the label Chronicles of Never, hasn’t appeared on her reality show, but he has been mentioned. However he will be seen in the upcoming episode that airs Lara’s birthday — she told us the other week, “He has to come!” On top of the cute portraits, Lara told the publication why she loves her boyfriend: “Gareth is interested in finding out about me and who I am as a person, rather than all the drama around me. As much as he understands my life, he takes me away from the craziness of it all.”
Today is Lara Bingle's 25th birthday! We are tuning in weekly to Being Lara Bingle, purely to snoop her killer on and off-duty style, how 'bout you? Over the years, Lara's cemented her best-dressed title thanks to her love of both international and local designers and finger-on-the-pulse style, but lately, her masculine take on trends has really captured our attention in a major way. From Balenciaga brogues to Dion Lee suits, take a glimpse into Lara's ever-evolving style with our celebratory birthday style stalk. Happy b'day Lara!
Pop chatted about all things Being Lara Bingle-related this morning with the bikini babe-cum-reality star, so we seized the opportunity to quiz the home grown style icon on a few fast fashion facts. From what's in the works with her sunglasses collab with ROC, to her beauty book, to the big ticket item she picked up recently in LA, Lara was more than happy to spill on her fashionable life, and future plans. Step inside and see what Ms B had to say.
It was hard to miss the buzz surrounding the debut of Lara Bingle’s reality show Being Lara Bingle on Tuesday night. In the first episode we got glimpses of Lara’s professional and personal life, which included meeting the people closest to her (mum Sharon, brother Josh and best friend Hermione Underwood — even her nan through voicemail!). The fast-paced footage also set up what we can expect to see more of as the series unfolds over the next nine weeks: photo shoots, trips to LA and India, and Lara’s upcoming birthday celebrations. We chatted with the sunny 24-year-old about editing, ignoring the cameras and getting on with the show.
Are you guys busy shooting today?
We are. We’re starting in a little bit but I’m having a slow morning. Hermione and I just did yoga so we’re feeling good for the day.
Congratulations on your show’s premiere on Tuesday — who did you watch it with and what did you think?
I had some friends over and we all watched it together. It’s such a surreal thing to watch your life played back, especially since three or four weeks ago we filmed all of that. It makes you realise how lucky and blessed we are living this crazy, great life, but at the same time it’s like wow, so much happens! You just keep going, I guess. It’s weird.
More from Lara when you keep reading.
She’s been labelled a “polarising figure” by Australian media and has courted lots of attention over the past few years, but whether you’re a Lara Bingle fan or not there’s a good chance you’ve heard of her reality show, Being Lara Bingle, which premieres tonight. People question why she’s famous, what she does, why we even care — we’re guessing a lot will be answered over the 10-part series. Thanks to Lara’s presence in the media we also know what kind of storylines to expect over the next few months: her nude photo scandal, her professional split from best friend Hermione Underwood, romantic tension between Hermione and her brother Josh, and modelling assignments in LA and India. And as it revolves around Lara’s whole life, we’ll be meeting the Bingle matriarch, Sharon, and even Lara’s grandmother through the telephone. We’ll definitely be tuning in tonight — will you?
Being Lara Bingle premieres tonight at 8 p.m. on Network Ten.
Lara Bingle flashed a smile and showed off her henna-inked hand as she left the Network Ten studios in Melbourne yesterday. The upcoming star of her own reality show, Being Lara Bingle, joined the hosts of The Project for a chat in the lead-up to the show’s premiere on June 12. She told Dave Hughes, Carrie Bickmore, Charlie Pickering and Andrew Rochford about why she agreed to let cameras follow her around for a series, and teased some storylines, such as her nude photo scandal and romantic tension between her brother Josh and best friend Hermione Underwood. Lara just returned from an overseas trip to LA and India, where some footage for the show was shot.
Lara Bingle grabbed a bite to eat with her best friends Hermione Underwood and Max May in LA yesterday. Cameras trailed the stylish trio to capture footage for Lara’s upcoming reality show Being Lara Bingle, which is tipped to premiere June 12 on Network Ten. Following lunch they made their way to the airport, where Lara, in a navy strapless jumpsuit, was spotted pushing a trolley stacked with luggage. Once inside, she and Hermione killed time by taking funny snaps on a Polaroid. Lara, Hermione, Max and the camera crew were en route to India, where more of Lara’s footage will be shot. She’s expected to be back in Sydney late next week.
