Outside the Royal Opera House looking clean and simple in this trouser suit worn with grey jersey. If we wore this we'd look like a bag lady, but on Lara it's minimalist perfection
Say what you will about supermodels and the debatable exclusivity of the inner circle of fashion, but Lara Stone is a model that’s difficult to dislike. With her disarmingly wholesome and beautiful, gap-toothed smile, her curves, which set her apart from every other ten-a-penny size zero clothes horse, and her own admission that she is “afraid of other females”, she’s one of the only famous models that we could imagine ourselves being best friends with. (If she’d let us, because we’re female). We want to hang out with her on the weekends with her comedian hubby David Walliams, drinking tea and watching Take Me Out on Sky Plus, and yes – raiding her wardrobe.
What we like about Lara’s personal style is how effortless and simple it seems. She never puts on too much eye glitter or wears a hideous assortment of garments that even Gok Wan would turn up his nose at – her outfits are always low-key and classic. It’s no wonder that she’s the face of Calvin Klein, one of the most classic minimal fashion houses practising today. Whether she’s wearing a spectacular party dress or a LBD, she always manages to look immaculate without appearing too studied. Want to see for yourself?
