Boobs and booze make for a pretty perfect pair — just ask beer advertisers. Clearly, i-D agrees, since in their spring 2013 issue, Dutch model Lara Stone goes topless, shielding her chest (just barely) with two strategically placed glasses of red wine. And that might just be the most normal “outfit” she wears in the spread.
Stone announced her pregnancy in November and was sporting a visible bump later that month, but stylist Charlotte Stockdale and photographer Tyrone Lebon pulled some trickery so that we might not have guessed if we weren’t already in the know.
In one of the other shots, Stone sits atop a mysterious headless creature in a giant white plume of a garment, while in a third, her disembodied head sits atop a bowl of fruit. The photog confesses in a Q + A that he wishes the shot of Lara’s head on a platter made the cover, but somehow we think that would’ve left people scratching their heads at the newsstand.
Not that the glossy is afraid to raise some eyebrows. One photo inside the issue shows the giant tattoo of Stone’s face and naked torso that Lebon’s stepfather Dave Baby had inked onto his side during the making of the issue. Now that, folks, is commitment.
this is some kind of spaceship or something.
