La Lara

We are in the middle of a Lara Stone moment -  the covers keep coming, the campaigns don’t stop and everywhere you go you see a hint of Ms. Stone’s influence. Whether its in the bleached brows trend or in the recent influx of gap-toothed, blonde models – Lara is the girl to beat. Just when you think you’ve seen all there is to see when it comes to Ms. Stone she goes ahead and surprises us with a Vogue Paris makeover. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott with dark hair, an innocent glance and :gasp: full eyebrows, Lara is almost completely unrecognizable.

Do you love this fresh take on Lara or is the change too much for you?

  1. I love this change. i really hope it’s permanent. now that she’s an established face she doesn’t need those gimmick-eyebrows to be remembered. and with this look she can be commercial enough to garner that supermodel status.

  2. She’s not naked for a change! And no, I don’t have a problem with nudity.

    She looks beautiful. This makeover adds a lot of versatility.

  3. Absolutely gorgeous. I have been very skeptical of her for sometime and not really a fan. This cover may have changed my mind. I believe versatility is the true test of a great model and she has proved this capability strongly here. Fantastic.

  4. I seriously became breathless upon seeing this. She is just so amazing, breaking so many stereotypes against models. There is just something about her that is impossible not to love and be intrigued by. She can really pull off any look and her body of work is so diverse. Long live Lara Stone!

  5. I usually dont like Lara but this shot is really, I mean REALLY amazing.
    Hope she pull that off more often.

  6. Of all the changes (Coco going black, Trentini going red, Daul & Ilkeline going blonde), this is my FAVORITE!!!

    Her booker ditched her past trashiness to the current glamorous and timeless beauty… absolutely breathtaking!!!

    😉

  7. She looks so beautiful and so soft. Such a chameleon…this photo of her resembles a cross between a young Natalie Portman and te sexiness of Kiera Knighley.

  8. Phew, I already thought models.com forgot to post Lara’s latest gig! You’re usually not that slow… 🙁
    Anyway, she looks beyond amazing. M & M did a great job. Probably the best cover of the year so far. I hope you’ll also post Lara’s ‘Numero’ cover…

  9. THANK GOD!!! NOT ONLY IS SHE NOT NAKED, HER MOUTH OR SHOULD I SAY TEETH IS CLOSED….

    SHE WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY TOP 20 OF THE GREATEST!!!

  10. she looks amazing here, it should definitely be permanent, she looks 100x better with dark hair and full eyebrows, usually i completely dislike her but even i must concede this is a great cover.

  11. WOW SHE LOOKS SO MUCH BETTER!!!!!
    I didn’t recognize her right away and this is my favorite cover of this year. GORGEUS. GO LARA!!!

  12. It is so incredibly 40’s!

    It is not even a slight of inspiration, they COPIED for 100 percent a picture with Grace Kelly or Greer Garson, then put Lara Stone in it and finished!

    Nothing new about the look, but Vogue recognized just the right time to make it so very chic and elegant!

  13. that is not Lara Stone is it!!?! She looks absolutely fantastic .Beautiful cover .I can’t wait to pick up this issue!

  14. Not really sure that this amazing cover is the result of long hours in Photoshop, but if not the this cover is amazing, i prefer lara as a brunetter, really really beautiful.

  15. I have to say I am a HUGE Lara Stone fan precisely because of her oddness.

    Top marks to her she’s unrecognisable here and there is a highly classy if somewhat manufactured “Retro” look, to be sure, but you know what? I love the freakiness and miss it, that’s what makes her for me so smashing. The hair, the gap, the teeth, the loucheness, here I find her kind of generic.

  16. I didnt even want to click on this story because I thought it was NOT Lara on the cover – I cant believe it! Lara u r brilliant!!

  17. TO DIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE FORRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR

    SHE S THE HOTTEST THING EVER AFTER COCAINE KATE

    F…..G HOT AS HELL

    LARA 4 EVER

  18. Are you sure is Lara? Look so different,wow!!! I love it. First I thought she was Natalie Portman. Change is good, very good!!!

  19. a little late people, but I haven’t had my breath taken away like this in a long time. Immaculate. Spot on. The love child of Natalie Portman and Eugenia Volodina. Sophisticated yet fresh. The most successful metamorphosis – not just a gimmick, it really makes sense. wow

  20. To join in the love song…. a girl that can pull of that kind of image change and still come out on top more beautiful then ever all i can say is WOW….WOW…WOW….

    LARA, Mert & Markus my hat off! This cover is nothing but AMAZING!!!

    Lara you are more beautiful then ever you just showed everyone that you got it all, Conratulations!

  21. my OH my! Le ingenue et superbe modele LARA!
    I couldn’t familiarize her, she looks so unique I thought she’s a new model! Exquisite photo!

  22. I hate LAra! I Am the MOsT Anti lara person alive maybe, but surprisingly i like her here… She looks beautiful and fresh, and she has clothes on 4 once…. Bravo!

  23. cool, she doesn’t look like the Gap-Toothed Albino that we love.

    what a Beauty, isn’t she?

    like a softer Adriana Lima mix with Natalie Portman.

    ganda.

  24. This is a classic cover. One for the history books of fashion. BEAUTIFULL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    I’m a model agent so i’m suposed to know these things.(ha ha )

  25. She needs to stop smoking those cigarettes, seriously, I saw her in casting a few months ago and the burns through those things like a racecar through rubber. I don’t mean to be rude, but she simply needs to stop destorying her body.

  26. boring…..never been crazy about lara,but she was a bit more interesting before……..and too much post production…..

  27. haters can’t handle Lara Stone.

    So I’ll say it again,

    It’s Lara, Beetch!

    Learn it, Love it, Live it!

  28. think it looks gorgeous, not too much change at all. as long as she doesnt keep the look for toooo long. i still think she looks better with blond hair!!!

  29. yeah, now that i’m looking at it again, i’m also seeing Natalie Portman. it’s like Lara meets Toni Garrn meets Natalie Portman. she looks so soft and serene, which is a nice contrast to the usual hard, mean, or sexed up look she usually gives. true versatility.
