Get Back, Stay Back is one of the editorials in the sports issue of V Magazine (Oh, BTW it features an androgynous Jennifer Lopez on the cover, in a codpiece nonetheless). The fashion story stars the gorgeous Lara Stone, styled by Carine Rotfield, and Photography by Nick Knight.
It features Krav Maga which translates from Hebrew as 'contact combat': Krav (קרב) meaning 'battle' and Maga (מגע) meaning 'contact'. Krav Maga is a practical and realistic system which teaches how to prevent, avoid, deter, or deal with all kinds of violent threats and attacks, including those which involve weapons. Krav Maga educates people in the subjects of self defence, self protection, fighting and combat skills, as well as the skills to defend others. Krav Maga is taught in a unique and comprehensive manner and was developed in Israel under realistic conditions.
Brutal Chic / Power Dressing
Lara Stone is always stunning and in great fighting form. Lovely heels from Prada, too!
I love the combination of self defence and high fashion. Lara wore some serious Spring/Summer 2012 threads from Balenciaga, Chanel, Louis Vuitton, Valentino and more.
You can see more of her in videos from SHOWstudio.
