Some will love it for its use of of jewel encrusted clothing, others because it’s a photo shoot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, and others will simply see it as proof of one of the seemingly necessary elements of the nudity and fashion trend: Lara Stone.
Looking back over many of the past year’s photo shoots you can’t help but notice the pattern; almost every time there’s Lara Stone there’s nudity. There was Vogue Paris, Vogue Italy, Vogue Paris again, and countless more in between.
Featuring Lara Stone naked in the February issue of W, alongside the likes of Amanda Laine, Sigrid Agren, Edita Vilkeviciute and Constance Jablonski, might be the norm but the rest of the shoot isn’t. After all, there’s hardly a trace of Stone’s almost trademark rawness; replaced instead with a definite element of sensuality.
