The fashion world has a new Queen in the elegant form of Lara Stone, the new Mrs David Walliams.
Lara was crowned Best Model at the prestigious British Fashion Council awards this week and took to the stage to collect it in a beautifully cut white dress.
While last year’s model of the moment Agyness Deyn was known for her boyish style and fashion guru Kate Moss champions bohemian chic, Lara is on a mission to bring back a ladylike look.
It seems to be paying off as this year alone, the Dutch model has racked up covers of Interview, Love, UK Vogue, Vogue Paris and Vogue China as well as starring in campaigns for Versace and Prada.
Little Britain comedian David Walliams has been officially upstaged – now wonder he put a ring on it.
However, the supermodel was modest when complimented on her award. She lightened the mood as she exclusively revealed that not everyone thinks she is styunning and said “every time I go to the dentist they always say, ‘you really need to fix that gap of yours.’ I’m like, ‘my gap is paying your dentist bills . . .”
So what’s next for the blonde bombshell?
“I just don’t want 2010 to end”, she admitted, “if I could do more of the same next year then I’d be happy.”
When asked about kids, her answer was “maybe”. How exciting!
Until then, we can channel our inner Audrey Hepburn through Lara’s outfits. It’s brave to wear a white dress in Winter but it’s way more stylish to show you’re pale and interesting rather than super orange.
