Vogue US January | Lara Stone On Being A Size 4 Model

Photographed by Willy Vanderperre for the January issue of American Vogue, Lara Stone appears in a feature about her struggle as a size 4 model in an industry dominated by twos and zeros. In an interview with Rebecca Johnson, she reveals some of the trials faced in costume fittings: It’s depressing when the clothes don’t fit and you are always the odd one out…I was on a shoot last week and the stylist took out this tight corset dress and said, ‘Here, put it on,’ and I was like, ‘Who are you kidding?'”

Fortunately for Lara, her curves seem to be one of the many aspects which makes her a star in the fashion world. The Dutch model has proudly shown them off numerous times in countless magazines and most recently, the Louis Vuitton campaign.

  1. Her "struggles" as a size 4 model? What "struggles" is she exactly implying? Lara graces as many covers, if not more, than any model in the industry. How many models have Paris Vogue dedicating a whole issue to them? It must be really depressing being Lara, whom I dream to one day photograph.

  3. I like this A LOT, because I've admired her but didn't know that. I am a size 4 and often feel weird about how I look, but knowing that she is too suddenly puts things in perspective.
