Lara Stone has gone global this fall, landing covers on three magazines simultaneously, a testament to her distinctive beauty and her rising profile as a supermodel and soon-to-be an actress.
In the East, Stone is featured on Vogue Japan’s November cover in a Givenchy fall 2011 collection sweater and printed skirt in bright yellow.
Vibrant colors were all over the runways this year in New York, London and Milan.
Inside, Stone is featured in black and white photos by Mario Sorrenti.
Lara, 27, appears to have ditched the bleached eyebrows and gone with her natural dark brown color.

And Lara’s three international covers
But Stone’s globe hopping doesn’t end there.
In the West, the Dutch model is covering the October issue of GQ’s UK edition, with an entirely different look.
She’s the sex kitten, covering herself capriciously with a white, men’s shirt. Now that’s something to come home to.
GQ has elevated her to “Woman of the Year” in its 14th annual Men’s issue.
The shirt is contrasted by Lara deep raspberry lip gloss and nail color.
And, finally, in i-D magazine, Stone is styled with an artsy ’80s club girl look. Her face is framed by a white feather boa. She’s front-lighted in red and back-lighted in blue.
David Bailey is behind the lens for the shoot.
Stone is probably best known to the public as a Calvin Klein model, but she’s no stranger to the fashion industry.
The Dutch model was named the world’s No. 1 international model by fashion site models.com and ranks 10th on the site’s list of sexiest models.
Stone is also featured in the 2011 Pirelli Calendar photographed by Karl Lagerfeld.
Stone has distinctive looks, high cheekbones, angular face and a celebrated gap-toothed smile that has drawn its fair share of critics, who sometimes call her “ugly.”
“It hurts when you’re having a tough day and someone says, ‘She’s so fu*cking ugly, I wouldn’t let my dog near her,’” she told the magazine.
But Stone easily channels such classic sex sirens as Brigitte Bardot, and that’s the theme of her GQ shoot, which puts her in a fur coat and nothing else.
Stone’s desire for a movie career is also getting some notice.
She’s slated to appear in the latest Austin Powers sequel with Mike Myers, following model-turned-actress Elizabeth Hurley and Transformer’s Rosie Huntington-Whiteley.
She’s definitely got a look that can set the big screen on fire. Check out her photos.
