i-D Serves Up Lara Stone’s Head on a Platter

If you liked Lara Stone's bizarro hair antler i-D cover, there's more where that came from. Here's the editorial, photographed by Tyrone Lebone and fashion-directed by Charlotte Stockdale.

One image shows a topless Stone covering herself with two strategically placed wine glasses; another has the Dutch model's crudely made-up face resting on a fruit platter — lips shiny and red, eyeliner thick, hair clipped up in a barette; even though the third shot isn't so in-your-face, it still feels Lynchian thanks to the headless Sphinx chair and Stone's oversized, furry Sister by Sibling top and white cowboy boot stilettos.  

Asked in the accompanying interview whether he thinks fashion photography should be beautiful, Lebone says, "Not really it gets boring doesn’t it. But fashion photography is fundamentally about selling aspirations through clothes. And most people aspire to beauty. So it follows that fashion photography should be beautiful to serve its main purpose. But there is a bit of space around the edges to work within fashion and achieve something more than this, and this is where it becomes interesting."

The issue features another equally good-weird shoot by the same creative team starring "model-of-the-moment" Cara Delevingne, which you can see here.
