Appearing truly fierce in the June 2011 issue of Vogue US, model Lara Stone exposes her own bronzing body, enhanced by skintight coats of wild cats and reptiles.

Perhaps she's hunting for her next walking textile inspiration.
Leopard print bikini bottoms, fur capes and snakeskin bags give the woman an air of wealth, sophistication and predatorial taste. Show Some Skin by Demarchelier is a play on epidermal expression whereby one might have expected to see a nude model in this editorial.
