Lara Stone poses for System magazine
Lara Stone has bared all for the first time since the birth of her daughter in a shoot that has, frankly, made our collective jaw drop. In the best possible way.
Lensed by Juergen Teller – a photographer renowned for his candid, truthful portraits – for the fourth issue of System magazine, the shoot shows Lara lounging in next to nothing, save for a slick of bright red lipstick and a pair of black Calvin Klein knickers. And wow, that hair. And yes, the body too. Obvs.
And there doesn't appear to be a whole lot of retouching in these pictures, either. In fact, there's none at all. Plus it appears to have all been shot in (the not always flattering in our experience) glow of natural light – there's not even an Instagram filter over these pics to dull any imperfections (not that Lara has any to speak of). And all of that makes us love them even more.
As well as Lara, Juergen also photographed fellow models Stella Tennant, Liya Kedebe and Saskia de Brauw for four separate, and equally beautiful, covers of the mag.
The title of the issue might sound provocative, but it's literal too: each model has had a bespoke fragrance created for her, which has then been impregnated into the cover of the magazines so that you really can 'smell' each model (should you so wish). So what does Lara smell like? Raspberry, heliotrope and iris. Delicious.
