I'm So Totally Mad For Lara Stone


I don't know about you, but I totally adore Lara Stone. I think she's so beautiful. I really love this incredibly gorgeous and stylish editorial of her in the September issue of
Vogue. These photos by Mert & Mercus have some a cool retro vibe to them. I find them to be quite stunning. What do you think?










P.S. I wanted to keep you guys updated with what's going on in my life. I went yesterday to my local community college. I am going back to school this upcoming spring semester. I will be a returning student since I went to this particular school years ago. Quite a few of the courses I once took still count and will transfer so I won't have to retake them. I do have to take the math placement test. I'm not looking forward to that. I was never good in math at all. I hate to think of how much I've forgotten now. I'm taking it in a couple of weeks. The first of November is early registration for the next semester. I did quality for financial aid so my tuition and books will be covered. I'm both scared and excited. I never thought I would be going back to college again. I do know that I've always regretted that I never finished before. I've never been able to get that great of jobs due to only having a high school diploma. I know that I need to further my education, especially with the current economic climate in this country. It's the best thing I do. I do feel weird going back at age 40. I know that many of the students are young enough to be my children. I've got the will and drive to make it work. It has to work. There aren't a lot of options otherwise. I do ask that you would continue to keep me in your thoughts and prayers. I appreciate it. Thanks.

Lara Stone is another level of beauty..
A lot of people find her very boring but every time she does a photo shoot, she pulls the best ones ever

Trixie said...

Good luck to you! Don't worry about your age! You'll just find it helps you with classes because you have more experience with things!

She's nice and skinny and I love her hair but my personal pet peeve lately is mouths with teeth always visible. I don't know why

Tere said...

Hi Keith

Thanks for posting this lovely set of pictures, that whole 50s girl-next-door look suits her so well.

Thanks, also, for keeping us updated about how things are going for you. Well done for taking what must have been a difficult decision and going back to college. The more qualifications you have on your CV the better. I'm sure it will benefit your job-hunting in the long term. Good luck, and I'll certainly keep you in my thoughts.

Great choice of pics Keith, she has a deep, innocent beauty, with a hint of sex appeal.

Hey I know you can do the maths, best wishes, had you not been scared, that would have scared me, but fear, if used to your advantage is a good thing. So make the best of it, and just do it.

Hope your weekend has been going well so far.

Hi, your blog posts are always so wonderful and romanticised. I am sure everything will work out well for you, all the best with college! I love this Lara Stone post, you definitely inspired with ideas for fall shoots. Thank you!

Classic beauty! love it

Carissa said...

hell yeah! me tooo!! Lara is amazing!

Haute World said...

Love her look! And she looks so gorgeous here - like Jackie O meets Grace Kelly. The retro vibe suits her!

And good luck with college! I'm sure once you go back, you'll get into things quickly. I detested maths too by the way. Just get that over with and you'll hopefully never have to do it again.

Jennifer Fabulous said...

Oh my goodness she is STUNNING! These photos are so lovely and I do enjoy the retro perspective. Really timeless and classic and flawless. I love it!

PS. Good luck with school! Don't be nervous about going back. My mom (who is 15 years your senior) is currently back in school. Also, a lot of my former coworkers who were laid off are back in school as well. They are around the same age as you. I think it's very admirable that you are returning to further your education. You ARE young and such an amazing person, so I see nothing but good things in store for your future. :)

Amazing pictures !!

She's spectacular!

Congrats Keith on going back to college! don't worry about math I hate it too. My high school teacher told me I'd never pass highschool math, and not to bother going into science in university cause it would be too hard for me. I got a tutor and passed my highschool math courses and passed all my hard university math courses.
You can do it and you will do it!! You have the drive like you said and you are an inspiration to others to follow their dreams. It is hard to get a good job nowadays without a university education.
I am proud of you! It definitely takes courage to do this.
What are you planning to get your degree in?
