Beautiful Dutch model Lara Stone covers Harper’s Bazzar US April 2014 issue and stars in a photo spread that shows us one more time how beautiful this girl can be. Stone who turned 30 last December , share with the magazine about her thoughts about fashion, her addiction to vodka, family and being a mom.
Her high fashion career started in her mid 20’s being noticed by ex-editor of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld who introduce her to Givenchy’s creative director Riccardo Tisci and Tom Ford, both good friends of the famous editor. And after the fashion world was in loved with this “Gothic Brigitte Bardot” as Tisci calls her.
“I love Lara’s beauty, sophistication, and complexity,” says Calvin Klein designer Francisco Costa. Adds Tisci: “When Lara turned up unexpectedly at a casting, I knew straightaway that I was looking at a new icon. I’m so happy to see where she is today, so strong. Nothing can stand in her way.”
In 2009 the model went in rehab for an addiction to vodka.According to the magazine Stone remembers keeping a bottle of vodka in her bag during Fashion Week season to have just in case. “One day I woke up and thought, I can’t live like this anymore,” she says, admitting that she could become particularly aggressive after one too many drinks. “I’ve picked a lot of fights in my day,” she notes. “But no one ever wanted to hit me back.”
“In my head I wasn’t going to rehab,” she says. “I was going there to not drink for a month—and then I’d come back and start drinking again. I thought it’d be a holiday, and I’d sit on the beach and chill. But once I got there it was a bit different. I had to talk about my feelings and play the bongos.”- haprersbazaar.com
