Lara Stone Suing French Playboy For Publishing Naked Photos

If you don’t know who model Lara Stone is — the just-married, gap-toothed blond has modeled for Louis Vuitton, Calvin Klein, Versace, and pretty much every other fashion house of note on the planet at this point — you may remember her as the girl I’d go gay for. The photo that prompted me to say that, which you see here, was from a super-sexy series of photos that appeared in the French version of Playboy. Wow, I thought, how open minded of her. She walks the runway for Miu Miu and strips down for Playboy. In actuality, though, those naked photos of Stone, taken by photographer Greg Lotus, were published in Playboy France without the model’s permission, and now she’s suing. “Playboy had no right to publish these unauthorized photographs. It’s not the kind of publication I would ever choose to appear in,” Stone has since stated. “I feel I have no option but to take steps to protect my reputation.” Still, more models now than ever are posing naked. Is this idea of distinguishing between “artful nudes” and “soft-core porn,” or however you’d like to put it, really appropriate anymore? After all, Playboy France has previously featured Lily Cole, Alexandra Richards, and Lou Dillon. What do you think? [The Cut]
