  1. The Lara issue – can’t wait to see it and have it and look at every photo again and again!
    The interview with Tyler, by Pony Ryder – great work, again! He certainly has quite a personality!

  2. This is just great. Lara Stone is amazing!!
    I also vote for Pony Ryder’s blog…a must see!!

  3. IM OVER THIS FACE FROM LAURA… shes gorge, thats obvious, BUT c’mon can we see different look?????????

  4. ;-)Im just loving it!!!After all the blogs and discussions of late about models age ,weight and longlevity ;Paris Vogue nails it !The girl that they devote a whole issue to is not only a fantastic model with an amazing body(yes people she eats !)she is over 16,has been working as a model for a few years now ;she knows exactly what it is all about ,i loved her confession of not being able to walk in high heels and after seeing the prada show :what woman wants to take a tumble every few feet because the heels she s wearing are to high ?!Lara you are the Bomb and i hope an example for all future models :personality , inner beauty and joy in your work is the most important !x

  5. I dont like Lara most of the times despite I believe she has a very high fashion appeal.
    Corine said that she did this issue all about Lara because her career was almost finished and that was made to help her.
    I doubt that despite I havent seen Lara in a while.
