Lara Stone is suing French Playboy, claiming it has published unauthorised pictures.
Our favourite model is furious that pictures taken by photographer Greg Lotus last year, have ended up on the pages of the magazine without her permission. However it is not known how the snaps, which include topless and full-frontal fashion images, made their way into the June/July issue.
Lara has now asked her lawyers to begin proceedings. She said in a statement: “It’s not the kind of publication I would ever choose to appear in. Playboy had no right to publish these unauthorised photographs. I feel I have no option but to take steps to protect my reputation.
We totally agree with Lara, she may not be adverse to appearing in the buff, doing so for a range of magazines in the past, but it’s wrong for Playboy to just steal these images.
We’ll keep you updated but in the meantime we’ve put together a gallery of some the photos that appeared in Playboy and some of the work Ms Stone should be proud of. Let us know what you think about this, and of her campaigns by leaving your comments below.
