LARA STONE has won “significant” damages from French Playboy, after the magazine published unauthorised photographs of her in June. The supermodel will donate the money to Great Ormond Street Hospital.

“No woman wants photos of them to be published in Playboy without permission,” Stone said in a statement. “I’m very pleased to have won the case, although of course I would rather not have had to take legal action at all.”

Stone announced she was taking legal action against the magazine and American photographer Greg Lotus in July. According to the Press Association, Playboy will also publish a legal statement its next issue, confirming it has infringed Stone’s image rights.
