Lara Stone covers Vogue Australia’s special issue

Wearing a cutaway white gown and a slightly awkward facial expression, Dutch model Lara Stone lands the cover of the latest Vogue Australia (alongside David Genat, Jordan, Zac and Louis Stenmark.). The issue was touted as something of a celebration of Australia, guest-edited by Mario Testino and featuring various shoots throughout Sydney with renowned Australian models like Gemma Ward, Catherine McNeil, and Jessica Hart.

It can describe a living creature, sure, but it can also describe an impulse, a brutishness, a carnal instinct that exists in humanity when you strip away society’s bounds. Txema Yeste’s interpretation of the ‘animal’ theme feels like an exploration of the latter. Brilliantly set to the MS MR track Hurricane…
