Lara Stone, (Carine Roitfeld’s) Beauty Icon


From some angles she’s all cheekbones, à la Kate Moss. From others, with a cigarette perched in her mouth and her long hair slightly teased, she’s a modern-day Brigitte Bardot. Lips ajar, her signature gap tooth instantly recalls photos of Lauren Hutton in her heyday. You can call model Lara Stone a variety of things, but muse is probably the best word these days, as Paris Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld dedicated her entire February issue to the Dutch blonde, enlisting the likes of Peter Lindbergh, Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Hedi Slimane, Steven Klein, Patrick Demarchelier, Terry Richardson, and Nan Goldin to immortalize her in photographs. Inez and Vinoodh’s spread is probably the most beauty-centric, with Lancôme’s creative director of makeup, Aaron De Mey, providing a twenties-era vampy lip and smoky eye and hairstylist Jimmy Paul adding a hairnet-encased bob of flapper-era proportions (please also note Deborah Lippman on nails, going with a reverse French in berry and white), but all of the spreads are worth a gander if you haven’t already perused the collector’s edition.
