Say What? Model Lara Stone Knows She Has It Good


"When I think about my job now, it’s so easy. Because you get so much free time, you get to travel everywhere. The people are nice and fun and easy and relaxed. You get to smoke at work. You make lots of money. Where are you ever going to find another job where you don’t have a boss or responsibilities, really, except to get on an airplane and just show up? It’s a bit worrying."

Twenty-five-year-old fashion model Lara Stone explains how her life is perfect in the latest issue of W. Still, it's hard to resent the beauty, who doesn't fit the current mold for models, since (gasp!) she looks more like a woman than a young girl. Some say Lara, who was a star of last week's Paris Fashion Week, could be the model to lure the fashion world away from its preference for malnourished beauty.

Yep. Models have it pretty good. I think it takes some effort and work to get to that point though.

Though I dislike the smoking brag, I do like her refreshing honesty and non-walking dead appearance.

Yup, it's nice to hear that because at least she's not bullsh*tting us with all that "Everybody thinks being a model is glamorous, you know? But it's such a hard work!!!" blah blah blah. I almost lost the wish to slap her for being a lucky b*tch. Almost.

I like her attitude, too. However, I do have some reservations about her decision to smoke. I respect it's her personal decision, but given what we know about cigarettes (not to mention how it affects a woman's appearance, which I think a model like her would be concerned with), it's beyond me why young women still make the decision to smoke. I just don't get it.

i don't usually follow fashion week or care about the models at all, but i LOVE lara stone. i love that she's a (nearly) normal sized girl & she doesn't pretend that modeling is the hardest job in the world. it seems like (at least in the little bit that i've read about her here & elsewhere) she's pretty grounded about the whole thing.
