Lara Stone Swimwear Interview
I love Lara Stone with eyebrows. I love Lara Stone with alien bleached brows, though I will never understand the trend, but I looooove Lara Stone with eyebrows. So, I might be brow-blinded, but this “Wild Swimwear” spread in the May 2011 issue of Interview looks pretty flawless. Props to stylist Karl Templer for throwing inflatable creatures into the Mikael Jansson-photographed mix. View Post

Lara Stone One of a Kind
Every fashionista dreams of spending a day in couture pieces by Jean Paul Gaultier, Armani Prive, Givenchy, Chanel, Dior, Francesco Scognamiglio, Atelier Versace, Valentino and Oscar de la Renta. Lara Stone is the “One of a Kind” model who got to do so with help from stylist Alex White, photographer Craig McDean, and the wonderful W magazine. View Post

Tuscan Turnaround Vogue Lara Stone
Tuscan Turnaround is an iconic start to the new year. It’s US Vogue. It’s Mario Testino. It’s Lara Stone. These are the type of shoots that make the girls of today and tomorrow save up to buy a monthly look into a world more magical than Narnia. The lighting is flawless, and plays with the many characters of Lara in the way of an exhausting dream. NSFW, but in a tasteful light. View Post

Kanye West Monster
Kanye West strikes again. This is just beyond. Judging from the above preview of the (FINALLY made) video for “Monster”, Kanye has taken a leaf out of the success of his ultra-fashionable video for “Runaway“. Contrasting from that success, the Monster music video is, well, a haute haunt. With lifeless models and a very creepy crawly Nicki Minaj, I am on the edge of my seat waiting for the full release. (Does it remind anyone else of the old Lara Stone Film Noir video by Steven Klein? Video under the cut.)
