Lara Stone Does Bardot By the Beach In This Month's W

Well here's some beach attire we won't be trying out anytime soon: For the latest issue of W, Inez and Vinoodh shot Lara frolicking in the sand in everything but your good 'ol bikini. The buxom blonde dons a series of high waisted numbers and even a Prada muskrat coat, all paired with the sort of heavily-winged eyes every make-up artist would advise against wearing in the sand. And leave it to Lara to make this season's hair accessory look effortless, even in the most ill-suited of climates. Maybe this is the summer for beachwear maximalism instead of minimalism. We're almost tempted to try it out.
