Model Of The Year 2009 – Lara Stone

Dutch model of the moment Lara Stone was a clear front runner in this year’s Model Of The Year Award.

Best known for the gap in her front teeth and her sizeable assets she’s been the most sort after model of 2009 (and reportedly one of the best paid).

She has opened shows for Giles Deacon, Christopher Kane, Fendi and MaxMara and closed shows for Stella McCartney, Diesel and Balmain.

She has featured in Givenchy campaigns for the past five seasons and has also been featured on the covers of international Vogue, W, Elle and i-D magazine.

Her CV is set to expand either further during 2010 with her nude shoot for ‘Love’ Magazine appearing on newsstands in February.

She will also front her biggest campaign to date replacing Madonna as Marc Jacobs leading lady in Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2010 campaign.

Marc Jacobs said of Lara Stone “we wanted a modern, iconic, sexy beauty… it had to be Lara Stone”.

Karl Lagerfeld now calls her “the girl of the moment” and French Vogue editor Carine Roitfeld dedicated an entire February 2009 issue to her.

Last’s years winner was British model Jourdan Dunn.

    I thought Georgia Jagger won Best Model of the Year?!?
    FC, can you please explain what does it mean opening and closing a fashion show, is that like an honour?
    Thanks 😉

      Yes it is considered an honour to open and close as show.

      Usually the girl of the moment or the designers muse does this

    I totally agree. She’s gorgeous.

    Just asking, was Karlie Kloss a contender? I think she’s pretty awesome as well…

      I think everyone has their favourites, but Lara was the only contender for us/

    Maud – Georgia May Jagger was the winner for the British Fashion Awards, all of the nominees are Brits.

    I love Lara Stone. I saw her outside the Chanel haute couture show in July and she had such an easy way about her. The winged eyeliner didn’t work so well, she still had her make-up on, but she certainly had a bit more of a substantial air about her than a lot of the other girls, if you know what I mean.
