a few new things to fill daria’s modeling universe today. 🙂
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.
that’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…
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 não, que é muito pobrinho: perua sensual é mais adeqüado. Nadinha de Patti, portanto. E Daria, a top-top, na campanha? Cara de “vai vender feito água de coco no calor de 40 graus” (abril.com), 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!
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.
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! 😉
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?
