Lara was all over magazines this year or should I say her breasts were. This year's trend seemed to shift towards racy ads and magazine covers. The fashion world embraced curves but only on skinny models, and Lara was the front runner for the trend.
Now, some of you might argue that Lara was the first model of her kind and that now, designers are looking for the Lara Stone "look-a-likes" like Daphne Groeneveld. While it's true that Lara did start a trend for buxom young models with gaps between their teeth and blonde hair, there is no one who can outshine Lara which is proof from her numerous covers and ad campaigns.
However, Lara is 27 years old. She's been around the fashion scene for awhile and has been a favorite of mine for a few years. For those reasons, she is getting placed a little lower on my list then she probably deserves.
Either way, bravo, Lara for embracing your femininity and imperfections.
