Femme: Lara Stone
Unlike most people in the public eye, Lara Stone has no problem speaking about her personal hardships. She has been criticized for her weight and unique shape. She entered rehab for alcohol abuse. She also deals with the issues involved with being the public face for numerous fashion moguls. Stone is an honest, real person, which sets her apart from the rest of the industry. Her life has had ups and downs, but she continues to set new trends in the world of fashion.
While on vacation with her family in Paris, France, she was discovered as a modeling prospect. That encounter led her to Ukraine for the Elite Model Look competition at the age of 12. For several years, she only found low-level opportunities; however, in 2006, she finally got her break when she walked for Givenchy in Paris. Soon after, she appeared on the cover of Vogue Paris.
Since her start in France, Stone has grown into a mega star. She has modeled for Diesel, Marc Jacobs, Fendi and countless others. In August 2009, she was on the cover of W Magazine where she was declared ‘Fashion’s It Girl'. In 2010, she signed an exclusive deal as the face of Calvin Klein. For her hard work, Stone was awarded Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards and was ranked #1 on models.com for over two straight years.
Stone started acting in movies in 2016. She made a cameo appearance in Absolutely Famous: The Movie and starred in a short film, En Moi. While she has a busy schedule, she’s stated that she wants to continue her acting career in the future.
In 2009, Stone made a decision that would save her career. She went to South Africa to enter a rehabilitation facility for alcohol addiction. In an interview with Marc Jacobs, Stone explains how strangling her issues became:
The drinking was getting way out of control. I just didn’t recognize myself anymore. I didn’t know what I was doing or where I was. I always had to have some drinks with me in my bag. I don’t know…Just waking up shaking and then having Bloody Marys on your own, first thing in the morning-I started to feel really pathetic about it. So I was like, “I can’t live like this.” It was just this really awful feeling of becoming a totally different person and not being able to control it at all.
After solving her problem with addiction, Stone gained some weight and was publicly criticized. However, she used her new curves to her advantage, strutting confidently on catwalks with her new look.
Lara Stone has dealt with tough times. She battled through addiction and weight issues to become a superstar in every realm of the fashion world. Her blonde hair and hazel eyes are striking; however, her unique curves and gapped teeth are what sets her apart from other models. She faced her problems and became a worldwide superstar. At 34, Stone has accomplished everything a model could hope to achieve.
