Lara Stone (born December 23, 1983 in Geldrop, The Netherlands) is a Dutch model.cite web |url= |title=Lara Stone - Model Profile |accessdate=2007-12-27 |]

Early life

Lara Stone was born on December 23, 1983 in Geldrop, the Netherlands to a Dutch mother and a British father. She grew up in the small town of Mierlo in the Netherlands. At the age of 16, she was expelled from high school and sent away to Paris by her mother, to which she attested on FashionTV's Fall/Winter First Faces 07/08 Lara Stone episode.


Stone entered the Elite Model Look contest in 1999, as a 15-year-old. Although she didn't win, she did impress Elite execs and was signed to the Elite Modeling Agency nonetheless. [cite web |url= |title=Lara Stone |accessdate=2008-01-04 | |language=Dutch] After years of working as a struggling model, her career took a positive turn when she managed to get signed by IMG in 2006. Soon after, she opened the Givenchy haute couture show in Paris and she has been a fashion frontrunner ever since.Fact|date=January 2008

She has walked shows for Louis Vuitton, Lanvin, Miu Miu, Valentino, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana, Givenchy, Karl Lagerfeld, Missoni, Emanuel Ungaro and many others. In FW-2008, Lara opened the Fendi and MaxMara shows, and closed the Diesel and Stella McCartney shows. In SS-2008, Lara closed the Prada and Balmain shows, and opened the Miu Miu show. That same season she was a semi-exclusive for Prada which was strange considering Prada normally only uses new girls as exclusives. Because she was a Prada semi-exclusive, she could not walk any shows during New York fashion week, or any shows in Milan before the Prada show. After she closed Prada, she was free to walk in Milan and Paris.

Her history of campaigns include Calvin Klein Make-Up, Calvin Klein Jeans, H&M, Time, DKNY Jeans, Nicole Farhi, Belstaff, CK by Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss Orange, TSUM, Just Cavalli, Max Mara, Malizia by La Perla, Sisley, Jil Sander and Givenchy. She was on the cover of Japanese "Vogue" in March 2005, French "ELLE" in May 2006, French "Vogue" in April 2006 ,Danish "ELLE" in August 2006, Italian "Vogue" in December 2007 and again for French "Vogue" in March 2008. In 2008, Lara was also on the cover of The Journal. She was also on the cover of W alongside Kate Moss and Daria Werbowy.

Lara was also photographed alongside Malgosia Bela, Daria Werbowy, Randal Moore, Mariacarla Boscono, Emanuela De Paula, and Isabeli Fontana for the 2009 Pirelli Calendar. She spent ten tiring days on the savanna in Africa to shoot the calendar. She shot in front of a fire, jumped off of elephants and climbed up trees in heels as she said in an interview on location.

She is one of the 10 new models to watch, according to "Vogue". She was considered the best model in 2006 by MODTV and the best model in the Fall 2007 season by FashionTV. She was featured on the "ELLE" article "Supermodel Generation 2006", along with Jessica Stam, Gemma Ward, Hilary Rhoda and Natasha Poly. She was also number 1 in the First Faces Fall 2007 Countdowns from FashionTV.

Her trademarks include the gap between her front teeth and her wobbly runway walk, which can be atrributed to her size 7 feet, smaller than the regular runway shoe which are size 8-10.
