Gallery: Lara Stone Is Gorgeous, Huge-Haired For 'W' Magazine

Gap-toothed and unusually buxom (for modeling anyway) Dutch beauty Lara Stone is one of our favorite models and, in next month’s W, she has a girl-only editorial shot by one of our favorite fashion photographers, Craig McDean. Lara, styled by Alex White, is seen throughout wearing couture by Gaultier, Armani Prive, Givenchy, Chanel, Dior, Francesco Scognamiglio, Atelier Versace, Valentino and Oscar de la Renta and looking ridiculously pretty.

Andrej Pejic Looks Like An Alien (Not a Woman) In His ‘Dazed’ Editorial

Andrej Pejic Looks Like An Alien (Not a Woman) In His 'Dazed' Editorial

Andrej Pejic is the solo face in “Gold Digger,” a futuristic editorial for the April 2011 issue of Dazed & Confused, styled by the magazine’s fashion editor Robbie Spencer.

Gallery: The Cover Spread of Carine Roitfeld's Final French 'Vogue' Is Here

A little while back, I had a minor freakout when Carine Roitfeld cast a then-(mostly) unknown Dutch model named Saskia de Brauw to be the face of her final cover at Vogue Paris. I freaked out mostly because Saskia is 1) awesome looking and 2) 29, which is (unfortunately) straight up old for a model to breakthrough. It’s a striking, strange, slightly unnerving cover (the polar opposite of Emmanuelle Alt’s inaugural cover featuring Gisele Bundchen) and here’s the accompanying editorial, which also features whitehot new-ish comer Daphne Groeneveld, who was, alas, at the more common age of 15 when she appeared on the cover of her first French Vogue. The shoot–lensed by Mert & Marcus, styled by Carine–has a seedy, off-putting, voyeuristic feel to it, as if the images were nothing more than stills from security camera footage. What do you think? Was this a strong way to go out? (Also, it’s Vogue Paris, so there’s some nip. If your workplace is not down with mostly-unsexy Fashion Nudity, you may want want to stop at slide 12). More »
