Erin O'Connor, Popular British Model: I Was Told To Have Boob Job

Erin O'Connor, one of Britain's highest-paid models, says that she was told to get cosmetic surgery at the beginning of her career, the Telegraph UK reports.

"In the early days of my modelling career, I think the industry was uncomfortable with how strikingly different I was. For example, I was told to have a nose job and get my breasts done. But I suddenly got very stubborn and thought 'Well, no,'" O'Connor said.

At six-feet-tall, with angular features that caused Karl Lagerfeld to call her the 'Anti-Beauty,' O'Connor certainly has a unique look, but she never turned to plastic surgery and worries about how accessible procedures have become.

She did note, "In terms of identity, it felt very uncomfortable to outgrow my own dad."
