Lara Stone In Vogue - The Naughty and The Nice

The lovely Lara Stone seems to be everywhere these days and she is most definitely the current darling of Vogue. Christina at Fashion's Most Wanted posted this oh la la image of Lara by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for the cover of French Vogue for the 90th anniversary issue. This sexy strong image doesn't actually scream fashion to me, but what do I know, I'm not French.
I'm guessing that you might not go for the full on 'Eyes Wide Shut' (a la Dash) style topless, lace masked look, but the cameo choker is doable, non?
Just buy a wide black velvet ribbon and add this.

American Vogue leaving the naughty to the French, because they do it so well, instead gave us the nice, with Lara as the girl next door in an editorial also photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
Well coiffed and cashmere covered, we get the good girl ingenue complete with a diamond cross from Tiffany & Co. Perhaps the full on 1950's style Nina Ricci sweater and skirt are too much coverage for you, consider instead the diamond cross because it is a classic.
Of course you could go to Tiffany's and buy it for $8750 with the in store experience and the little blue box. Or you could skip the hassle of going to the store because Beladora has the same diamond cross for you for $3500 less than the Tiffany store price.

et voila

Nice from bottom of photo to chin, but there's something wrong with her chompers. In a few of her photos Stone reminds me of early 70s Bowie.

I love that cover with Lara Stone xx
Gorgeous cross by the way xx

LBT: Oh come on...she has a little gap between her teeth. There is nothing Bowie-ish about her except that both she and 1970s Bowie were skinny and pretty.
Chic: Yeah, it's a great shot. Lara is definitely the new "it" girl.

Love the Vogue cover it is so eye-catching, I have always had a thing about chokers, they are so elegant and sexy!

Lara is lovely I am afraid I too fail to see any resemblance with David Bowie, although I love Bowie

Dash said...

Just had another thought looking at the Vogue cover again, it reminds me of the styling for the film 'Eyes Wide Shut'.

Belle de Ville said...

Dash: yes exactly, very 'Eyes Wide Shut'. I will add that to my post.

There are some photos of her (for CK Beauty I think) where she is definitely rocking an early 70s Bowie vibe complete with slicked-back hair, weird make-up, and vacant stare. But of course Bowie didn't have a gap in his teeth; he had something better: a different colour in each eye.
