I will happily confess to having something of a longstanding crush on Lara Stone. She doesn’t just look good in clothes, making the pieces she wears desirable, she is desirable. It could well be that, as a ‘woman with curves’ myself, I identify with her shape, the way fabrics undulate over her body. She certainly brings a beautiful, intense strength to her photoshoots – the crew on our shoot were quite simply blown away. Post-pregnancy – her son, Alfred, is now a year old – Stone has worked hard with trainer James Duigan to change her lifestyle and reclaim her body, with the aim of becoming stronger, healthier and more toned. As you can see from our shoot, the results make her this week’s perfect cover star, as we focus on making the best of your body. From fashion that celebrates
form to a revealing interview with principal dancer Yuan Yuan Tan about the incredible dedication it takes to succeed in ballet, as well as vacations with exhilaration as their goal, we hope it will put a spring in your step.
