Lara Stone has risen to the top of the modeling world in just a few years. As a French Vogue favorite and seasoned runway model, we have to admit we do love her on the cover of this month’s issue of LOVE. Known for being “regular”-sized and for her gorgeous gap-toothed smile, this 26-year-old model has certainly hit her stride. Here’s a look at her career highlights, our favorite Stone shots:
British Vogue, December 2009
A change of pace for Stone, as she poses like a princess for the pages of British Vogue. Shot by Mario Testino in haute couture gowns by Nina Ricci and Christian Dior, Lara was deemed “Girl of the Year.”

French Vogue, February 2009 (The following photos are all from the same issue)
French Vogue proves its obsession with Stone by dedicating an entire issue to her. Each shoot shows just how versatile she really is. This issue is a must have for any true Stone fan. (We’re counting this twice, because having an entireissue dedicated to one model is certainly impressive.)
Italian Vogue, July 2007
Drawing inspiration from Britney Spears’ crazy days (yes, we hope they’re over), this editorial spread entitled, “Rehab” features Lara Stone alongside top models, Sasha Pivovarova, Agyness Deyn, and seven others. Shot by Steven Meisel, this spread is a fashionable dig at the disturbing lives that celebrities lead.
