Bad Girl Gone Good

Lara Stone is the queen of rebellious and brazen sexuality. We’ve come to expect a certain devil may care attitude from Ms. Stone – how many Lara editorials feature the Dutch beauty wearing Balmain and smoking a cigarette? Perhaps that is why her sugary sweet cover for British Vogue seems so very fresh. Soft pastels, a frou frou dress and Lara looking almost (dare we say it) innocent. Leave it to Mario Testino to show another side of one of our favorite girls.




Lara Stone by Mario Testino for British Vogue | Scans by McQueezy @ tFS

  1. This cover IS different. It is very soft, compared to her previous covers this year, and more pretty, not so much edge. She is not my favorite, but I have to say, 2009 was the Year of La Lara. You go gurl!!!!!!!

  2. Amazing Lara.
    She and Raquel are my absolut favorites and I am so gald they are very close friends behind the lens.

  3. Like her doing her edgy thing but conventional beauty look doesn’t work for her. It’s kind of boring and she looks pretty but indistinct.

  4. Wow!! those photos are different from other Testino’s works, beautiful!! Lara looks sweet and pretty here, I love the change but please don’t open your mouth:)

  5. UK vougue is so predictable, i wanna see a different model on the cover. somthin lyk jourdan dunn, or karlie kloss, even naomi campbell will shock me

  6. Eyebrows! THAT’S what looks different about her! I couldn’t quite put my finger on it. Nonetheless, she looks nothing shy of amazing here. So elegant and beautiful. I am, and continue to be, a huge Lara fan.

  7. so unexpected!!! i love this soft and sweet version of Lara. I was not a big fan of her, but I really love these photos!!!!!

  8. Still don’t understand the whole Lara thing, she’s okay but she’s no girl of the year or model of the year or whatever, I’ve always thought of her as average with some rare exceptions (Vogue Paris) but these pics are just lame.

  9. The dior gown in the third photo is BEAUTIFUL. But the cover……it looks kind of bridal magazine-ish. Don’t you agree?

  10. pretty. although it reminds me of a set of photos i’ve seen with raquel zimmerman. i think people are becoming a little short on creativity

  11. Yes me too, i want to see very fresh faces, that girls who have never been on the big runways.There are a lot of girls who are waiting to be discovered, much more interesting faces.
