While the internet was abuzz with news that model-of-the-moment Lara Stone had teamed up with French Playboy for a series of racy photos, one person wasn't so thrilled about the partnership: Stone herself.

The 26-year-old Dutch-born model, who has become famous for her relatively busty, non-waifish figure and gap-toothed smile, announced that she is suing the magazine, stating that the photos used in the spread are unauthorized, reports Telegraph UK.

''Playboy had no right to publish these unauthorized photographs," says Stone. "It's not the kind of publication I would ever choose to appear in. I feel I have no option but to take steps to protect my reputation."

Schillings, the London-based law firm specializing in "protecting the reputations of high-profile individuals," was hired by Stone to go up against French Playboy and the photographer behind the images, Greg Lotus, who has worked with magazines as well as fashion and beauty brands including Italian Vogue, 10, W, Escada, Levi's, L'Oreal, and Van Cleef & Arpels





Of course, any fan of the supermodel knows that it's not really the nudity that's bothering Stone -- she's gone totally nude for W, Purple, and Love magazines -- but the principal of the matter.

The photos that French Playboy is publishing appear to be from a photo shoot Lotus and Stone did late last year for a different project.

In the raciest of the images, Stone is shown completely naked -- expect for heels -- sitting in a chair with her legs crossed, completely nude standing up in an open silk robe, and in two others she bares her breasts.
