Lara Stone’s W August 2009

  • Pin it

If there was no Brigitte Bardot, they would have had to invent her and then make Lara Stone pose like BB! Anyway, here’s Lara Stone taking her best poetic shot at Bardotness in W Magazine, August 2009.

I really like these Steven Klein pictures even though Lara looks like she’s holding her breath (or sucking in) in most of the shots. The boring side of it is the perennial (more or less) photorealistic impersonation of BB. (the story continues right after the jump with more pictures!)

I guess being a Chanel girl does count for something – it seems the entire fashuniverse welcomed Lara with wide open arms after Carine highlighted her in that risqué dedicated Vogue Paris issue and the Kaiser has adopted her for the season (alongside his other Chanel sweetface, Baptiste). But is she really the It Girl? Or just another one of “This Season’s Girl”? Are we ready to erase our favorite, fatigueless Bardot-lookalike Kate Moss pictures from our memory?(who is Kate gonna do for her next photos?) (photos via)

I am not fond of this photos layout, but I do like the sweater that she is wearing.
Why do they ALWAYS rehash, Bridget Bardot, and Marilyn Monroe? Its ever so boring and a tad lame.
I would love it if they did for example Rita Hayworth, Veronica Lake, Grace Kelly, Jean Seberg, Kim Novak and my favourites Audrey Hepburn and Katherine Hepburn for these “inspired by” shoots. Try someone new to emulate!!!

Ellington, I agree to a certain extend. Please, let them leave all those other great stars rest in peace please! I shall always love the originals better.
Kate Moss is not a BB-look-a-like! Neither is Lara Stone. They’ve to style them and photoshop to get it almost right. See their other pictures.
