Lara Bingle arrived in Sydney from LA today and was all smiles as she wrapped her arms around and kissed her best friend, Vicki Lee. When they’re together, the two are inseparable, and in the two weeks Lara spent in the US for work — she was on assignment for Cotton On — they kept in touch on Skype when they weren’t in each other’s company. Lara even counted down the hours until her reunion with Vicki, posting on Instagram while on the plane, “Next 20 something hours . . . see you on the other side @vickileelee.”
Even though she’s known mostly for her fashion connections and headline-making personal life, the model-turned-businesswoman, who’s currently dating American DJ Nick Cohen, is using her profile to raise awareness about bowel cancer, which her father Graham passed away from when she was younger. She’s been vocal about the disease for years and is an ambassador for Bowel Cancer Australia.
