An Amazing Magazine Cover – Vogue Paris, August 2011

Lara Stone graces the striking Vogue Paris, August 2011 cover. As Emmanuelle Alt’s fourth edition as Editor-In-Chief, the cover is a cinematic fashion moment! Stone wears a Haider Ackermann Fall 2011 coat and can be seen peering off into the distance on a Californian beach. Love the juxtaposition of the sandy beach with Stone’s unattainable glamorous beauty! Definitely one of my favourite covers of the year!
