h&m vid: meta-fun & meta-irony

too bad it’s not daria’s voice!

THE DAY AFTER. i still don’t understand where this vid came from and if it’s the official summer 09 commercial. anyways, “horrible” is the word i have heard the most, but personally i find it so silly that eventually i had fun watching it. maybe mine is a meta-fun, where i just focus on daria in bed saying ‘boring‘ to that guy and then ‘time for a change’ or something like that. then i have fun watching at the difference between her sportish running style and the final scene where she’s all feminine and languishing caressing that really perfect example of 007-like masculinity called matthiew williamson. btw, i wonder if they put a 1 meter cube under his feet to make him look taller than the models!!

a metter of genres: science-fiction vs. realism

a matter of genres: science-fiction vs. realism

so for all these reasons i must have so much fun watching this video! i find it so ironic, but maybe not for the reasons it was made!!


"so please tell me, which face do you want from me?!"

"so please tell me, which kind of expression do you want from me?!"

bah, maybe it’s me clueless about heterosexual charme, but what kind of pic is that meant to be?! i can’t see any sexual appeal in her face in this pic. she looks like she’s waiting for instructions. like ‘ok, i put my hand in my hair as i’ve learnt i have to do when you want me to play heterosexist fiction, and then?! what the fuck do i have to do?!?’. okay, maybe it’s me clueless making her clueless too, but c’mon!! this picture looks very slapdash!!

h&m launch

daria was at a h&m event yesterday. too tired to post. just scroll down the page and visit the following page too.
comments tomorrow. meanwhile just check the new picture of the moment to have a different perspective on the event!

** i just realised that i wrote “lunch” of  “launch”! anyways, there’s little to comment actually. certainly daria would have preferred being somewhere else, but she must work sometimes!! :p

v59 preview

perplexe cowgirl

bah, we don’t reach the level of horror of v41, but how to say it? testino strikes back… what a perfect combination of tasteless sexism: testino, the man who doesnt have access to feminime erotism, and v, the magazine always trying to look hypertrendy… and daria’s isn’t even the worst pic. in the preview at v magazine i saw worst things. testino is as refined as a hammer when he shoots nude women, but at least daria is so naturally elegant that she saves the pic from vulgarity. maybe because she looks like she’s holding the swimsuit more than pulling it down! and her expression is everything but heterosexist! i don’t know if there are more pics.

(please give credits if you use the pic since it’s a composition of mine!)

vp is for vogue profusion

i know, i'm predictable

i know, i'm predictable

vogue profusion here. more when i have time. and the following is my fave pic of the beauty editorial, there’s a darish touch i like. thanks to diorette.




yeeeees!!! revenge!!!!

so girls, don’t be shy… get your gay attitude out and confess, yes confess the truth! how much you would like to be spun up and down by superdaria!!! cos i’m sure you are all there drooling at the pics!!! :pppp
more comments when proper scans are available!! let me only say that this 2009 has been great from the point of view of editorials! maybe i’m not crazy about the cover… but i will reflect on it!

it must be because it’s less dynamic. the pose has an 80’s vibe that is quite different from the editorial… it’s more colonial than a gender daring version of supervixen… well, certainly it’s better than the previous august 08 cover, still by inez & vinoodh, that was so retouched that you could hardly recognise it was daria! even nose is almost hers!

pics here and here. you can also have a look at the snaps made by deborah of the other editorial here.

vogue paris

i’m in a rush: first images here.

looks like vogue paris cover of the may issue is confirmed, even if source wasn’t quoated.

LATEST UPDATE from tfs (originally posted by BerlinRocks)
the cover feats Daria front shot wearing denim jacket, and khaki ensemble (short + vneck tshirt made brassière), and a besace with fringe on right shoulder. something pretty sexy militarian. she’s wearing a long necklace with a shell pendant and two bracelets made of this dark blue stone (never know its name). she’s holding the collar of the denim jacket with her right hand and left hand on her hips (i guess you can imagine the pose). smoky eyes and hair waxed in the back … sunset in the back. the Vogue font is dark blue, the rest of typo is white and blue.
Game Girl by Inez & Vinoodh and Emannuelle Alt, ft. Daria W. (and boys) 14p. colour / 2 double page
Esprit Libre by Ben Hasset and Julia von Boehm, ft. Daria 5p. colour, portraits (<– will she be our daria?)

psychedelic daria


2 new vids about matthew williamson are available at h&m. there are a few psichedelic images of the campaign backstage and you can hear about 7 seconds of a double daria speaking. as usual h&m vids are better than pictures.

quick gender change artist

"the kid" meets "jules and jim"

full quick change artist editorial by david sims is available here.

quintessence #2 – 5 years later

ok, title is different, but spirit is similar, seeing the img preview.


you can see other 3 preview images in her img portfolio. link is on the right sidebar.
title is ‘quick change artist’ and these first pics remind me both of quintessence (vogue paris august 04) and another editorial for harper’s bazaar (sept 04) both by david sims.
so, thanks to god someone different from i&V and imitators (h&m photographer)!!! btw i made a mistake when i wrote at tfs that i didn’t like daria working with sims! i love it instead! i screwed up sims with steven klein. i only like one editorial by him featuring daria, that one with natalia v. too (sept 04 – us vogue).

so hopefully we’ll get hq scans soon. i might consider even buying this issue. so i can also read the models’ conversation!!!
(and of course that military jacket is the same as the balmain campaign… does balmain have any other clothes?)

new ed

daria has an editorial by david sims in the may issue of vogue america.


it’s official: i’m in a darialogistic hysterical mood!! all that blah blah about meisel and models’ interacial bfs… and no scan of daria yet! btw, an editorial about models and their intersexual girlfriends would have been much better!

new (?) h&m


mah… blah… i’m rather perplexe… it looks like a vogue paris editorial shot by inez & vinoodh… i have seen this kind of poses and this setting so many times… i was really expecting something different. to use a word often abused by fashionistas, that’s really boring and uninspired. it looks like it’s going to be one of her worst compaigns ever.

you’re waiting for daria showing up on a cover in paris. instead you get her showing up in london… eurochannel manouvres in the dark…



picture by mario testino who this year seems to be able again to shoot daria decently… (scanned by nothingless at tfs). too bad it’s a bit too airbrushed and that the missing g makes this weird voue effect…

a cascade of pics

at the very beginning!

at the very beginning!

here, here and here at the bwgreyscale forum. a bit random, not in chronological or typological order, but it may be useful for those who search for hq pics of daria.

btw, i hope i can do a few updates before easter, but it’s going to be a very full week. meanwhile, let me suggest you should visit this site on linda evangelista to have an idea of what a perfect site is!

btw – comparing this picture to the topshop candids of the other day… are those the same pants?! 😀

daria at an event?!?!

sparkling joy!

sparkling joy!

a rather dark and thoughtful daria showed up at a topshop dinner in ny yesterday… such a surprise!

(more pics at patrick mcmullan… if some have an account, pls share!)
