Thankfully, someone has talked some sense into Lara Stone’s fine mind. While Stone continues to call herself “the fat girl”, she no longer swears to go on a diet and end it all — her womanly US size 4 curves, I mean.
In the midst of all the Photoshop, size zero model conversation, Lara Stone’s ascendancy as a fashion model reminds us of bonafide, real-woman supermodels. At 5’10” and size 4, Stone’s hardly an Amazonian goddess, but in today’s fashion world, she’s statuesque.

This gorgeous, crazy woman delivers Christmas joy in December’s British Vogue, while admitting in a candid interview that not only does she eat pizza but she’s an alcoholic.

The fashion industry is waiting for confirmation that Lara Stone will represent Louis Vuitton in their next campaign. Madonna is no more. Daniel Lalonde, the label’s president and CEO said: “We have a tendency to always change the person responsible, the ambassador for each campaign. So it’s a very natural, organic thing for us.” via NY Magazine

Lara Stone reeks of Smart Sensuality style, which is why we’re so happy to hear that pilates is on deck but wasting away to a nonsexual woman is not.
Stone is also in new ERES ads, which I’m taking over to Sexy futures. Here you see them at Marie Claire UK
