Lara Stone & L’Oreal Paris
Q: What is your best memory in your career so far?
A: From the start, my career has been an amazing journey: I had the chance to visit truly amazing places and to meet super talented artist. I think the best memories I’ll keep from the turmoil of my first years as a model are those of all the shows I did! It’s been a while though, so I probably picture the whole thing a little bit nicer than it used to be, but I can tell you that we had a blast! We had an amazing time!
Q: Was modeling a dream for you when you were a child?
A: Not really to be honest. Fashion was a complete different world from where I stood, and didn’t really exist in our little village. I hadn’t heard of Vogue till I was 16!
Q: Who is your fashion icon?
A: Kate! Definitely.
Q: What are the beauty products you can’t live without?
I love the new skincare serum Skin Perfection. It leaves my skin flawless and silky. For me, a fresh musthave before I take on a new day. In makeup, I can’t live without the Color Riche L’Extraordinaire lipstick – shade 601 – which both colour and moisturize my lips in a brand new way. For my hair, the Elsève Extraordinary Oil gives this extra shine and texture that makes the difference.
Q: What is your favourite nail polish?
A: Since I’m Dutch I always like to wear some orange shades. Especially as orange is part of our national colours.
Q: What is your workout diet if any? A: I’ve been using James Duigan’s Clean & Lean cookbook loads, I love all his simple, healthy and tasty recipes. I work out at the gym with a trainer, I am a yoga person and I eat really healthy dishes.
Q: Do you have any beauty secrets?
A: It’s not a secret – lots of sleep and plenty of water.
