Dutch model Lara Stone has won her case against the French edition of Playboy, which had published unauthorized photographs of her in its June 2010 issue.
   The case commenced in July. At the time, Stone said through her law firm, Schillings, ‘Playboy had no right to publish these unauthorized photographs. 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.’
   The case took place in Paris, with Stone represented by Schillings and French corporate-law firm Asmar & Assayag.
   The photographs were taken by Greg Lotus.
   The Press Association says that Stone will donate the damages she has won from the case to the Great Ormond Street Hospital. Playboy, meanwhile, has to publish a prominent statement in its next issue stating that Stone’s image rights had been infringed, according to Schillings.
   Stone is married to comedian David Walliams.
