I have featured a number of Lara Stone covers, she really does seem to be an editorial dream model. For most she goes for bold, in Gucci for Paris Vogue, and another cover for the French title showing off her bosoms, but for the first time Lara has been given a minimalist vibe for Vogue Russia’s July 2011 cover.
Shot by Mark Seliger, I just love how honest the portrait shot is, as well as the fact that I don’t think I have seen a shot of her like this before, she has been stripped back and looks fabulous. Wearing Calvin Klein, the styling by Camilla Nickerson is perfection, as to make this cover gorgeous the clothes did need to take a back seat. I have to admit I love Lara Stone, but even I was surprised she could deliver such emotion, I adore her icy glare on this cover.
I know some people will say that it isn’t a cover shot, but that is possible why it works for me, I am glad that Vogue Russia went for something different. I also love the shots for the accompanying editorial, if like me you pick up a lot of international mags I totally recommend this one!!
