carine roitfeld encourages lara's evolution
The September issue of Paris Vogue is testament to what a radical difference an eyebrow tint and a packet of hairdye can make. It is also testament to the fact that a more demure side of Lara Stone exists, beyond that nipple baring, lips agape, Brigitte bardot-esque writhing sex creature as she is so often portrayed. She just needed somebody to spot that suppressed alterego and drag her out. Please, a round of applause for Carine Roitfeld, photographers Mert and Marcus and their creative teams for doing so.

Big, big, applause to them because If I've already loved Lara, with this editorial she is proving that she is more than that sexy Bardot-esque model, like you have said.

She looks so elegant and beautiful in all the photos, and surprisingly, she is perfect as a brunette, more delicate and sweet than ever.

Now I'm so excited to buy this issue!

Lara has a face too gorgeous to hide, but she is surprisingly unrecognisable as a brunette. I love her on this cover. Even more than usual, perhaps.

LAYNE said...

This shows that she can be such a chameleon.

so gorgeous.

la roitfeld: 1 point.


Versatility is the most valuable talent in model, and should we expect any less from the incredible miss stone? mais non!

Abso-bloody-lutely gorgeous.

Doesn't she look a little like Catherine mcneil too? x

I normally find Lara's pictures quite hideous and nobody else seems to get it! It's all "Oh it's art" and "Oh she's so talented" and "She has such great shapes". Personally I think she's either made look really weird and quite ugly, or yeah like a bit of a whore!!!

Thanks for posting this! It's amazing what a few subtle changed can do!
