Perhaps this was inevitable. Now that swimsuit models are stealing ad campaigns and catwalk shows from traditional fashion models, it's not so surprising to hear that Lara Stone appears in the June/July issue of French Playboy.
Of course, the curvy Dutch model isn't exactly the regular skinny clothes hanger we've seen in the modelling world in the recent past, and perhaps for this reason, photographers have delighted in picturing Stone in raunchy, practically-soft-porn type poses for shoots, often topless or completely nude, in edgy fashion magazines. ln fact, the Playboy images that have been released so far, (which were taken last year by photographer Greg Lotus), are rather more prim than many of the sexy fashion shoots Stone has modelled for. She's not even nude - wearing a bikini and body jewellery from the 2008 Victoria's Secret Fashion show. lt's not clear if the pics were specifically shot for Playboy, but we're sure the magazine's readers will be very pleased to see them.

What do you think about fashion models appearing in 'adult' magazines? Should they leave it to the erm, pros?
