the trials and tribulations of lara stone

Vogue UK December 2009: Stone Age
Lara Stone / Photographer: Mario Testino

Lara Stone, notoriously tough and unapproachable, comes off very soft in this cover and ed for Vogue UK‘s December issue. Call it an image rehab (in more ways than one), but we have been seeing the Dutch model interpreted in a gentler light rather than a smoking sexpot. Recall her embodiment of Gloria Vanderbilt in September’s Vogue Paris.

Inside the mag hails her as a game-changer a la Kate Moss and Lara’s got a revealing and super-candid interview about spending four months in rehab this year for alcoholism, her famous boobs, figure and attitude. Oh and pushing another model down “a few stairs.”Read the context of that and other surprising reveals here.

    This sounds like a juicy story! Must read it. I find Lara very beautiful sometimes, and other times she can look very plain – borderline ugly. But I guess that makes a good model, that she can transform while still being “her”.
