Lara Stone is featured in the September issue of Vogue Paris as 'Gloria,' a woman who seems to be something of a 40s fashionista and seductress.

The Lara Stone pictures, shot by Mert & Marcus, show the model in high-collared lace fashions, proper hairdos and stockings. As proper as she looks, however, Stone is definitely doing some flirting. It's definitely a cool vintage-inspired Vogue Paris shoot for sure.

Implications - This seductive fashion spread demonstrates how sex still sells products in contemporary society. By fusing a commodity with a sense of sexuality, the product is more likely to attract consumers and sell. Businesses should just remember that too much sexual appeal can take attention away from the actual product being sold.
