The Lara Stone Age

Lara Stone. The name holds big weight in the fashion industry. For those who might be unfmailiar with her work, she is a Dutch model who has graced runways all around the world. There was a bit controvesy a few months ago in Australia after her ad for Calvin Klein Jeans was banned because it was "suggestive of rape and violence".

What do you think? But Calvin Klein ad aside, there is no denying that Lara Stone is a force on the runway.

I adore Lara's look. Her pale blonde hair. Her gap. Her wobbly walk. Her uber confidence. In stills Lara looks so sure of herself but when she was interviewed by Vogue Paris, Lara was reported of saying that she does not like runway. That with her small feet she's always afraid of falling and as she's walking she thinks to herself, "Do not fall, do not fall."

What do you think of Lara Stone? Does she deserve the title of 'one of the best models of the past decade'? Your thoughts and opinions are wanted and appreciated! :)
