She's the stunning Dutch supermodel who has fronted campaigns for fashion giants including Calvin Klein and Givenchy.
But Lara Stone has revealed she finds it difficult to cope with the pressure of being a model when she is constantly attacked by fans on the internet labelling her ugly.
Amazingly she made the admission as she posed for a sexy new shoot for GQ magazine, going nude with just a fur coat maintaining her modesty.
'I get called ugly all the time!' says Lara Stone as she poses naked for GQ magazine
With her back to the camera, Lara gives fans a cheeky glimpse of the body which made her famous as she pouts sexily for the photographer.
In another shot, the 27-year-old beauty covers her breasts with the fur coat as she poses on the beach.
But in the accompanying interview, Lara, who was named Woman of the Year by GQ magazine, admitted she often struggles with negative comments about her appearance.

Lara added that she often finds herself getting jealous of the 16-year-old models who are emerging frontrunners in the modelling industry.
She said: 'You do get jealous sometimes!'
The model, who was discovered on the Paris Metro when she was only 14, married comedian and charity fundraiser David Walliams at Claridges in London in May 2010.
And she also revealed the details behind one of her most famous commercials, when she was driving a Bentley convertible in an advert for Calvin Klein.
She laughed: 'I can't drive. The car was mounted on a truck, and I'm supposed to be driving. It was difficult to get the hair right.
'We finally did the take, and it was perfect, except my hands had never been on the steering wheel. I felt like such an idiot!'
While Lara has been taking the modelling industry by storm for the past few years, it was recently claimed the stunning blonde is hoping to make a move into acting.
And it has been rumoured that she is set to follow in the footsteps of fellow model-turned-actress Elizabeth Hurley.
Shane Warne's current squeeze appeared in Austin Powers: International Man Of Mystery and it is thought Lara may land a role in the forthcoming Austin Powers sequel.
A source said: 'Lara's name has been touted in casting meetings for Austin Powers 4 and there is talk that bosses would like to get her in for a screen test - especially after she's talked about comedy in interviews.'
