little pic great pose ;-)
who’s this prince charming in heels?

a few new things to fill daria’s modeling universe today. ūüôā

first, we got this new unexpected campaign: balmain. unfortunately at¬†the moment¬†the only available image is still very small. yet, rather revealing. i bet it’s inez & vinoodh again… or not? i even wonder if the pic was shot on¬†the same day and in the same place as the isabel marant campaign. anyways, i heart a very similar rough and post-fashionist mood. still emmanuelle alt behind? and her love for daria? it would be nice to write an essay on remotion and return of the removed in alt-werbowy relationship!
so imagine a long trip along the isabel marant road to nowhere through the desert … and at the end of nowhere – in pure mitology – this dusty green place with such a tall¬†transgenetic being¬†standing in heels.¬†soundtrack¬†is a¬†slow lo-fi version of prince charming by adam and the ants.¬†how beautiful if such a minor stream could finally become the new mark of daria’s late career. instead of new dull works aiming to make her charme regular and… er…¬†commercially appealing to consumers.
from this perspective an article about¬†dormice taken from¬†fad looks interesting. daria seems to be “in talk” with them “to star in a campaign that is first accessed by portraiture”. it would be great to see her in a work by this duo that mixes so different styles, bonding classical references with a metaphisic vibe and a postmodernist dimension.
and to finish with another unexpected collaboration, even if that happens at h&m, according to daria should be in a forthcoming campaign featuring designer matthew williamson too and shot by solve sundsbo. a different photographer! look at the excellent result when he shot daria in 2003 for¬†vogue uk in the editorial¬†page (see link k on the left) clickin on ‘2003 – jump to the¬†beat‘.¬†i also wonder if he shot her for hermes fw 07 too. not sure about it at all. corrections are welcome, but certainly that editorial shows that he might know how to get darialogism out of daria… although it’s a campaign!

isabel marant s/s 09 campaign

isabel marant s/s 09 campaign

that looks like the complete series of isabel marant s/s 09 campaign, shot (again) by inez & vinoodh and styled by emmanuelle alt. as someone said at tfs, the paris mafia is back! i hope that¬†alt will take care of daria in some forthcoming issue of vogue paris too (especially after seeing the so booooring issue with lara stone whose facial expressions are less than versatile, so to say…).¬† and i also hope that she will back to shooting with some other photographer… i’m starting to miss testino! :s well, at least it’s a less obvious i&vee this time, a bit rougher.
my fave of the three remains the first one. second is difficult to judge until i see a bigger version, about the third there’s a stick effect of her legs that i don’t appreciate so much, especially compared to the muscolar slimness of the first one. in general i like it that the campaign is not focused on daria’s beauty, but on her emotional dimension. there’s something deep, not superficial, that perflectly fits daria’s interpretation. whenever i see daria into pics like those, i feel relief and think that she’s doing what she’s the best at: to embody a rent, a hole in fashion perfection. to express a kind of pain that fashion tends to remove. that’s why i also liked her pirelli sub-calendar after all. the way she does nudity is so different… and i think (again) of ‘in love’ too. but that’s for the 2008 post!
i wonder how much room fashion will leave to her for this. see cavalli campaign as a reply.
the gallery was posted by sex alien friend at tfs.

is that the same wig?

76053_scan0070_122_578lo1that’s what i wondered when i saw the new ad featuring freja in the eyewear collection..
looks like this year cavalli has a passion for platinum blonde wigs. and if in daria’s case, many tried to see a monroe reference in order to give the images some meaning, what’s the point here? fashion mysteries. too bad there are no pics of them together, it would have been nice.
anyways, i have been thinking about the famous promised post on 2008, but in the last days i have suffered from a very annoying toothache that hasn’t left me many energies… that’s also why i didn’t proceed in updating the site. tooth against daria…

new marant

first image of a new isabel marant ad here.

er… absent walking!

you put down daria and fontana will show up! i’ve just made some searches about the supposed daria in the forum tufi duek show, but the only reference to her is: “Periguete n√£o, que √© muito pobrinho: perua sensual √© mais adeq√ľado. Nadinha de Patti, portanto. E Daria, a top-top, na campanha? Cara de “vai vender feito √°gua de coco no calor de 40 graus” (, which i can’t full understand! any translation is welcome! i don’t know, maybe i’m just blind, correct me if i’m wrong, but i’d say there was no sign of our girl at the show!! hahaha! now i can go to bed peacefully!

waiting for tonight

eyes of today

eyes of today

i find this 2007¬†pic posted by vogueelle addicted at tfs simply wonderful. it’s apparently taken from some lancome shooting in nyc, but she isn’t wearing the usual overmake-up, so it’s difficult to understand what that thing was. certainly you see more the woman here than the model and certainly those eyes have something melancholic and intelligent that after all these years still make me kind of melt… miau!
ok, back to present time. dubai editorial.¬†look at 2 posts below. berlinrocks at tfs says “1st image = cover; 3rd image = single page (but it’s not really this one … but from the same serie ie she’s wearing the same outfits); 5th image = double page portrait; 6th image = opening single page of the editorial/article”.
and today at 7pm daria should walk for forum tufi duek according to the previously quoted brazilian sources. let’s see.

appeal to visitors from dubai

dubai cover

dubai cover

the pics from gelati’s site are just a humble preview of the harper’s bazaar issue featuring daria.
according to the precious source (davidphoto at fashist forum), the issue features “a 3 pages article on her + 6 pages of full bleed pictures… the cover is a different shot.. it is a half body shoot of daria, with the same dress she is wearing in the first shoot the photographer has in the show slide… white dress with glittery neck…”

so visitors from dubai – and i know there are! – there’s a mission for you: please scan the issue and share it with us!! or – as an alternative – if some of you has a friend who’s traveling to dubai, tell him/her to pick up a copy! i’m really really curious! i’ve never cared about dubai like today! ūüėČ
i had just posted this entry when i went to alan gelati’s site again and found the image of the cover. great! she’s a bit stiff though, not very smooth in her pose. and i must say that she looks older in the pics. maybe it’s the make-up. and who’s the supermodel, sorry?
