2009 has been the year of new ventures and expanding résumés for some of fashion's finest. From Valentino's documentary to The September Issue and Tom Ford's A Single Man, fashion's biggest names have taken the film world by storm. Well, Karl's jumped outside his short-film-as-commercial box and made a slightly longer feature he's called Vol de Jour. He directs Lara Stone and Baptiste Giabiconi while they ransack Chanel stores all over Paris and they make out with some great loot! I just wish it didn't end there. Perhaps we can persuade Karl for a Vol de Jour, parte deux? After all, where there are robbers, there are cops right? All I can think about is how perfect a jail scene would be -- Lara in this and Baptiste in this. Now that's cell block chic.
Let's Play Dress Up With Lara
Giles If you have a body like Lara's, you don't cover it up. But since it's not appropriate to be naked at your wedding, the next best thing is a corset. Giles celebrated curves and flesh with a spring show that offered up a number of these pieces. This dress was by far the most dramatic, and we think it would make just as great a statement coming down the aisle as it did the runway." ?> Dolce and Gabbana Lara doesn't exactly seem like the type to wear a mock turtleneck, but with some sexy black lingerie underneath, this exquisite lace number could work." ?> Haider Ackermann When Steff suggested this dress, everyone gasped in agreement. It's the perfect long sheath, and it just might be our top choice. We even love it in the black." ?> Lanvin We're not sure whether Lara will go long or short, but if she's leaning towards the latter, then this nude dress could be a beautiful and unconventional option." ?> Threeasfour Lara would look like a walking Calder in this dress. Perhaps she could wear this to the reception party--it would have so much movement when she dances!" ?> Dior This delicate, wispy dress is what wedding dreams are made of. It screams romantic." ?> Pucci If Lara and David are considering a destination wedding, then perhaps she should also consider this dress. Pucci's breezy gown is well-suited for a sandy beach and blue skies." ?> Valentino Masterpiece. As Rachel Zoe would say, this dress is \"stupid beautiful.\"" ?> Ann Demeulemeester For a more minimal look, this stark white, long skirt and jacket would be nice. And we're loving the cleavage." ?> Versace If Lara's feeling sexy, she should go for this. As Steff says, \"It's sexy all over while feigning purity.\" Plus, it's sure to show off her best assets." ?>
