Lara Stone praises ‘brave’ women for opening up about sexual harassment

Lara Stone has praised the “incredibly brave” women who have come forward about being sexually harassed and abused.
The Dutch beauty began modelling as a teenager and has posed for the likes of Givenchy, Calvin Klein and H&M during her career so far.
Over the last few weeks, the fashion and film industries have been rife with reports of inappropriate behaviour, with movie mogul Harvey Weinstein and photographer Terry Richardson just two of the men accused, and Lara is pleased to see the truth being uncovered.
“I am very lucky to say nothing untoward has happened to me personally,” she told the Sydney Morning Herald. “You hear stories, people gossip but with the stories coming out it’s really sad these girls have to go through that. It should just never happen…
“(I’m happy women) are finally feeling strong enough to tell these stories. It’s incredibly brave and it’s really sad when people feel they can’t talk about it. It’s really important all this comes to light. That massive abuse of power is always wrong.”
While the blonde star may be one of the most famous models in the world, she makes sure not to inundate herself with work. When she isn’t busy in front of the camera or on the catwalk Lara loves spending time with her son Alfred, four, who she shares with ex-husband David Walliams, and doing all the “mum things”.
She also keeps fans in the loop with her life via social media, but doesn’t like to over share.
“I like to take a break from it on occasion because you are so glued to your phone all the time,” she explained. “It’s a great way you can be yourself. I don’t just see myself as a model in a picture and so it’s nice to be a (personality).”
