When I started modeling, it was just a job, and I was so excited…

“When I started modeling, it was just a job, and I was so excited—everything was so new, so crazy. I didn’t overthink anything.
Cara Delevingne

While the 20-year-old self-described tomboy was amazed by her sudden rocket into the heart of the fashion universe (not to mention by just how tough all that runway walking can be), she is setting her sights on other stars—acting, making music, inventing, Nobel Prizes—as long as there’s plenty of goofing off to be done along the way.

Lara Stone : “La ressemblance avec Brigitte Bardot s’arrête au physique”

On la compare à Brigitte Bardot, mais la top-modèle néerlandaise n’envisage pas de carrière au cinéma. Égérie de Majestic Filatures, elle rayonne en Corse le temps d’une échappée mode.

Depuis douze ans, elle rayonne sur les podiums et dans les campagnes publicitaires avec sa moue frondeuse, sa beauté énergisante et sa crinière couleur blé. Mais c’est surtout son regard expressif qui capte immédiatement l’attention. Volontaire, Lara Stone ? Sûrement. On ne devient pas la top-modèle superstar qu’elle est aujourd’hui sans opiniâtreté. Repérée à l’âge de 12 ans par un agent dans le métro parisien, lors de vacances familiales, la jeune Néerlandaise remporte trois ans plus tard le concours Elite Model Look. Nous sommes en 1998. Lara Stone quitte les Pays-Bas. Direction Paris, où elle va ronger son frein pendant huit ans avant d’accéder aux premières places grâce à un contrat passé avec la puissante agence IMG Models.

‘Every time I am going to dinner with my friends, I always say, “You guys better stay off your phones, otherwise I am not coming.” It’s really important to be present in life.’

Growing up Irina Shayk had never seen a fashion magazine, now she’s one of the best-known models of her generation.
She talks to Jane Mulkerrins about how she did it, and why she’s so determined to keep her private life private

… The 32-year-old may have clocked up 10 million followers on Instagram, dated the world’s most famous footballer, Cristiano Ronaldo, for five years, and now have a one-year-old daughter with her boyfriend, Hollywood A-lister Bradley Cooper. But none of this is up for discussion. Shayk has never spoken about her current or previous partners and, save for the occasional paparazzi shot and a select few red carpet appearances, such as this year’s Met Gala, she and Cooper are rarely seen together. This is not going to change today.

‘That’s why it’s called a personal life, because it’s mine,’ she says, simply but firmly. ‘I am really protective of it. I don’t feel like I have to talk about it or promote it. Outside of my job, I am a normal person, and I want to walk outside of my house like a normal person. I don’t want somebody sticking their nose in my stuff.’ Right then. I consider myself forewarned. At one point later on, I observe that it must be harder to travel for any length of time now that she has a daughter to get home to. ‘It’s true,’ she says, briskly shutting the subject down. Again. …
