LARA BINGLE AMOUNG THE US ELITE

Lara Bingle has her career back on track and has joined one of New York's top modelling agencies.

Bingle, who recently spent about eight weeks holidaying in the US, has signed with Elite Model Management.

The move allows the model to further her dreams of working in the US and Australia.

She was picked up by the powerful fashion stable during the sojourn that she took after the end of her relationship with cricketer Michael Clarke.

"I have an agency over there," Bingle told a Sydney radio station on Tuesday.

"I really enjoyed myself over there. I just got a break from everything.

"In a perfect world, I'd like to continue going back. New York is one of my favourite places."

While Bingle was spotted having a leisurely breakfast in Bellevue Hill this week, it is understood that Bingle was anything but idle on her New York adventure, with the stunning bikini babe believed to have done several photo shoots while in the Big Apple.

Sources say she is happy to start "from scratch" in the US and is believed to have shot a completely new portfolio for Elite.

She was drawn to Elite by one of the company's talent scouts who used to work at a top Sydney model agency.

While Bingle is keen to take up opportunities should they arise in America, the 23-year-old, who is the face of Speedo, will continue to base herself in Australia.
