Stone me, a size 8 model!

Lara Stone Lara Stone

First it was Eliza Cummings, now it's Lara Stone. We're having a bit of a model moment here at Graziadaily, but it's not just us who are currently obsessed with Lara. After opening for Jean Paul Gaultier and closing for Chanel at last week's couture shows, Lara is the talk of the broadsheets and blogs. Who is this ‘woman' to take to the catwalks? After all, Lara is curvier than your average model, with buckets more attitude. There will be no graceful slinking for this one. Nope. Lara, 25, is more what you'd call a stomper. A stomper with a ‘face on'. But what a beautiful face it is. All gappy teeth, big lips and cheekbones, perfectly styled as Bridget Bardot at the JPG show. The Dutch model has been a regular in shows since 2006, but it has only been in the last year that people have taken notice. It could be because she's landing more campaigns, or it could be the matter of breasts. The shocker of the season is that Lara is a size 8! Not big in reality, but big in the world of models. In an interview last year, she said: 'I think it would be nice if I wasn't the only person with tits and an arse, but I am... I don't think I'm starting a trend.' Perhaps not a trend, but she's definitely starting a fan club.
