Clara has been engulfed in a whirlwind of controversy with the lawsuit and sexual harassment allegations brought against her agency Polaris Entertainment. On January 30, Clara and her representatives addressed rumors that she directly manipulated her ranking in 'Mode Lifestyle Magazine's '100 Most Beautiful Women in the World 2014' list.
Back in October, Clara was ranked as the 2nd most beautiful person in the world on Mode’s 100 Most Beautiful Women in the World 2014.. Netizens are now speculating that Clara may have manipulated the rankings as they discovered that she worked with 'Mode' on August 31 in Florida for a photoshoot, two months prior to the list's publication.
On January 30, Clara's representatives said to the press, "It doesn't make sense that Clara would manipulate the rankings. It's not worth responding to this." They continued, "In the past, Clara even said herself in an interview that she thinks the reason she was ranked was because of their connection."
Clara herself commented on her second place saying, "I was surprised and happy. The fact that my name rose among stars Jessica Alba, Scarlett Johansson, Angelina Jolie, etc. is amazing and made me feel strange."
She continued, "I have had contact with them in the past with a photoshoot. It seems like that connection resulted in my high ranking; thank you."
