Photo: Stone in an ad for home equipments and home improvement ad
Dutch supermodel Lara Stone, 26, the new face of Calvin Klein, said , "No woman wants photos of them to be published in Playboy without permission", after winning a lawsuit against French Playboy that published her photos without her permission, telegrapgh.co.uk reported.
Stone instructed the law firm Schillings in London and Asmar & Assayag in Paris to sue French Playboy and American photographer Greg Lotus after the images appeared in Playboy in June. The case was heard in a court in Paris, and Payboy has been ordered to publish a prominent legal statement in the next edition confirming the court has found it has infringed Stone's image rights.
Stone has appeared on the covers of Vogue's French, Italian, British, Japanese and American editions, but earlier this week a risque advertising campaign for Calvin Klein Jeans featuring Stone was banned in Australia after Australian Advertising Standards Bureau ruled it was 'suggestive of violence and rape'.
