“I sometimes think I’m too shy for my job”. Lara Stone in The God’s Gift Issue, 2008. Lara Stone has single handedly changed the shape of fashion with her womanly curves and Brigitte Bardot sex appeal. Born in 1983 in Holland, Lara was discovered aged 14 on the Paris Metro whilst holidaying with her family. Cue campaigns for Calvin Klein Beauty, Versus, and Louis Vuitton; shoots for Vogue, W, and i-D; fashion shows for everyone from Givenchy to Victoria’s Secret; and even a role in Karl Lagerfeld’s short film Fitting Room Follies. As a testament to her dreaminess, in 2010, she was crowned Model of the Year at the British Fashion Awards. That same year, she married David ‘’I’m a lady!’’ Walliams, whom she met at a Chelsea football match. Lara is now the proud mother of a baby boy, Alfred, and an adorable norfolk terrier called Bert.
