Lara Stone has been confirmed as the new face of Calvin Klein.
The Dutch supermodel signed an exclusive deal with the fashion house to front its campaigns for Calvin Klein Jeans, Calvin Klein Collection and ck Calvin Klein.
She said: “I have a long history with the Calvin Klein brand, and so it was wonderful to work with the house again this year. It’s like being part of a family.”
The deal marks the first time in years Calvin Klein have used one model to front all three of its brands and the firm’s creative director, Francisco Costa, thinks Lara’s perfect for the role.
He said: “I conceived my autumn 2010 collection with a self-aware and assured woman in mind. For me, Lara was the perfect choice for the new campaign because she is a woman who epitomises confidence and sensuality.” Lara – whose UK size eight figure is deemed ‘curvy’ by catwalk standards – has taken the fashion world by storm and is currently the face of Prada’s Infusion d’Iris scent, Louis Vuitton, Jaeger and Eres. She has previously said she thinks her curvy figure has helped her become a success.
She said: “I’m different because I am fat. It would be nice if I wasn’t the only person with t*ts and an a**e.
“If I could have the discipline to be super-skinny I would be. I think of dieting, then I eat pizza. I’m a woman, and every woman wants to be thinner – unfortunately.”

Natalie Portman has been named as the new face of Parfums Christian Dior.
The stunning actress signed a deal with the French fashion house to front a new campaign – the first time she has represented a fragrance and cosmetics brand.
Claude Martinez, president and chief executive officer of Parfums Christian Dior, said: “We are extremely excited to have Miss Portman embody our house. She will symbolise with grace the values of luxury and the glamour of Dior.”
It is not yet known which project Natalie – who follows in the footsteps of Sharon Stone, Charlize Theron, Jude Law and Monica Bellucci – will be involved in.
Despite her striking beauty, Natalie recently admitted she is concerned about losing her looks after seeing so many aging actresses struggle. The 28-year-old star said: “You see people who were stars five years ago and already they’re waning. As actresses approach 40, it starts becoming really, really difficult.”
However, the ‘Closer’ actress said she didn’t think she would surgically alter her appearance to look younger. When asked if she’d have cosmetic surgery in future, she said: “I would hope not.”
