We’ve seen Lara Stone‘s breasts on ample occasions (pun intended, sorry), so if there’s one thing noteworthy about her latest semi-nude appearance in System magazine, it’s not her enduring beauty and impossible curves but the realness of it all. Juergen Teller appears to shun the ubiquitous trend of digital airbrushing in favour of showing the audience Lara, stretch marks and all. Women everywhere (many of…

Surf, sand and Speedo’s latest swim campaign

Mention of Australia swimwear label Speedo often conjures up images of skin-tight men’s trunks and the kind of racer-back swimsuits spotted in the Olympic pool.
