    About Lara:
    MODEL Lara Stone was born in the small Dutch town of  Mierlo to a Dutch mother and a British father. She was first discovered in the Paris Metro aged 12 and took part in the Elite Model Look competition in 1999 when she was just 15.
    She signed with IMG in 2006 and began a career gracing the catwalks and campaigns of the world's most influential designers and brands including; Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Lanvin, Prada, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, Balmain, Celine, Hermès, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana and Hugo Boss.
    Her famously curvy figure and gap-toothed smile set her apart from other models of her generation, securing her editorial coverage in no less than seven international editions of Vogue.
    Her famously wobbly catwalk strut has been attributed to her unusually small feet for someone so tall (she wears a UK 5). As a result she told French Vogue in February 2009 that she doesn't enjoy appearing on the catwalk at all, constantly telling herself whilst walking, "Do not fall, do not fall!"
    She made an appearance in French Vogue in October 2009 with her face and body blackened, resulting in an international racial controversy, and appeared for Jaeger, Eres and DSquared for autumn/winter 2009-10.

    Stone was first approached by an agent in the Paris Metro, at age 13. Stone entered the Elite Model Look contest in 1999, as a 15-year-old. Although she didn't win, she impressed Elite executives and was signed to the Elite Modeling Agency. After years of working as a struggling model, her career took a positive turn when she was signed by IMG in 2006. Soon after, she opened the Givenchy haute couture show in Paris.

    She has walked shows for Shiatzy Chen, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Lanvin, Miu Miu, Fendi, MaxMara, Pollini, Prada, Anna Sui, Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Stella McCartney, Zac Posen, Balmain, Celine, Hermès, Jean Paul Gaultier, Dolce & Gabbana, D&G, Givenchy, Karl Lagerfeld, Missoni, Emanuel Ungaro, and Victoria's Secret. Stone has opened shows for Giles Deacon, Isabel Marant, Christopher Kane, Fendi, and MaxMara, and closed for Diesel, Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney, and Balmain. She has also been a prestigious "semi-exclusive" for Prada, meaning she could not walk any other shows during New York fashion week or any shows in Milan before the Prada show.

    Her campaigns include Calvin Klein Make-Up, Calvin Klein Jeans, H&M, Jean Paul Gaultier, Time, DKNY Jeans, Nicole Farhi, Belstaff, CK Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss Orange, De' Type, Revlon, TSUM, Just Cavalli, Max Mara, Malizia by La Perla, Sisley, Jil Sander, Versace, Giorgio Armani, Louis Vitton, Prada,, Eres, Dsquared, and Givenchy (for 5 consecutive seasons).

Stone made her American Vogue debut on the May 2009 cover alongside Liya Kebede, Anna Jagodzinska, Natalia Vodianova, Caroline Trentini, Jourdan Dunn, Raquel Zimmermann, Natasha Poly, and Isabeli Fontana as one of the faces of the moment.

    Her trademarks include the gap between her front teeth and her wobbly runway walk, which can be attributed to her size 7 feet, smaller than the regular runway shoe which are size 8-10. In the February 2009 edition of Vogue Paris, which featured Stone on the cover and as the sole model in the magazine, she said she does not like the runway and that her unusually small feet for a person her size do not fit in shoes, and she often thinks, "Do not fall, do not fall."

    Stone was featured on the August 2009 cover of W, declaring her the most-wanted face of the moment. Vogue Paris named her as one of the top 30 models of the 2000s.

    On February 19, 2010, she was tabulated as the world's number-one fashion model on the international modeling site's Top 50 Models Women ranking. She also ranks 10th on the site's "sexiest models" list.

    In 2010, her look sparked a trend in blonde, gap-toothed, big-lipped models like Georgia May Jagger, Lindsey Wixson, and Ashley Smith. The look even inspired Tyra Banks to have a contestant's tooth gap widened on cycle 15 of America's Next Top Model.
