the independent state of daria

COVER3

well, what can i say? this 2009 has been very rich from the viewpoint of press works and this very beautiful – very darish cover confirms it. i can see a moss aura on it, it reminds me a bit of the ‘independent state of kate’ or what that cover was named… and yeah, this is the independent state of daria 2009: beauty as a free sensual elusive world of physical happiness.
this pic was posted at tfs by clotheshorse along with others taken from the september issue of flare. see them here. photographer is max abadian. we can’t say clothes are so great, neither are the other two covers, but in general daria’s posing is a further demontration of her maturity and charisma.

officiel daria

deborah kindly sent me two mobile pics of a little interview daria has in the current issue of the french mag l’officiel.

she also offered a short translation:
Daria Werbowy She’d like to live at the Middle Ages, sails on the Ontario lake, draws at the India(n) ink… You thought you knew her. Meeting with the muse of the new lancome perfume, Hypnose senses. Your fashion icon? “Linda Evangelista.” Your style? “I have a ‘shifted’ style, mixing new and old”. What kind of buyer are you? “I always buy the same things – jeans and black leather jackets that i collect.” The detail which comes back in the clothes that you like… “The feathers” Your ideal cocktail dress? “A (small and)short black dress.” Your oldest piece? ” Motorcyclist boots that i have since i’m 12.” Your favourites designers? ” Balmain, Isabel marant” Never a summer without… “Beer” Never a winter without… “Snowboard in the Vermont and at Val d’Isère.” Your first olfactory memory? “The smell of the stoves at my grandmother.” In your bag, there’s always “A camera.” Your last purchase? “A shower in my flat that i renovate at New York, in the Lower East Side”. Your sport activities? “Sail, snowboard, basket and rugby.” Your paradise on earth? “In the middle of the ocean.” Your favourite artistic movement? “The dada” Your decoration style? “Like me: old and a little bit of contemporary, with a bit of rustic. I like the places with history.” Your favourite town? “Paris” Your main flaw? “I’m always late, and i always miss my planes.” Your grandmother secret? “To wash the face with lemon juice and rinse it with hot water.” In your sponge bag, there’s always… “The eyecream Lancome Secret de vie.” Your hairdresser? “Harry Josh, at NY – canadian like me.” Your nails? “Naturals or blacks.”

er, sorry… where has the full daria issue ended up?! instead we have just a thick normal issue with a lot of editorials and models… i wonder if wwd just made up things or plans have changed meanwhile… so let’s content ourselves with this nice pic taken by thefrenchy from the main editorial shot by inez & vinoodh… typical marant gender playing style i’m never fed up with… plus the cover of course, which i like: simple, sober, a kind of work i’d like to see more in the overexcited fashion photography… more british than parisien in my opinion… hopefully we’ll get a bit more of our girl…. (p.s.: i wonder if eniko has become i&v’s new nude muse this year, since daria seems to avoid nudity).

deborah’s preview shots under request :p here.

collateral activities

while i’m doing a few changes in this blog – expect an introductory post to a new darialogistic phase – i posted a vid i downloaded from repubblica.it. it’s taken from the h&m event in ny last end of april and you can see daria at the beginning and the speaking a bit in the middle.

and kuklina at fashist says there’s not only daria in the forthcoming issue of vogue paris.  a lot of her, but there are other girls too…

daria claire

daria marie claire aug 09464here comes the scan of the marie claire beauty interview. i’m not commenting these new interviews, but just let me say that i find it funny that after mentioning again for the …..th time the lemon tip thing, this time she added that you have to moisturize your skin soon after! maybe she – or some for her – read all the comment ppl have made about lemon making skin dry. anyways, it’s also funny that the lemon tip is a heritage of mine too from my mother’s family… but i mostly use lemons skins to make my elbows softer. that’s a tip i really recommend to everybody. i don’t know if daria knows about it too…
i didn’t understand a thing though. in this interview she says she adores sleeping, she could do it for a whole day. in the other interview she says she’s insomniac… ??? maybe she sleeps during the day cos  she can’t sleep during the night.  or maybe i just don’t understand french very well.

c’est elle… peut-etre!

108this is the elle august interview in a bigger size, kindly provided by deborah who found it at the site written on the image. a bunch of funny stories indeed! today i bought marie-claire (buuu!! like th worst fan!) but i can’t scan that interview because i don’t have my scanner here. maybe tomorrow.

mysterious pic again (maybe)

"what happened to my hair?!"

"i can't find my gloves..."

does anybody know where this pic comes from? it was posted in a blog under the name of eniko and caption says it was taken during a testino’s shooting in time square… maybe an unpublished pic from her latest us vogue editorial? or maybe it’s just my memory to start to get old…

anyways, daria is featured in another french magazine: the issue of the 10th of july of elle. title of the little interview is une nuit avec daria (a night with daria). i’m not even commenting all the recent interviews cos i find some pieces so surreal that it’s definitely better if i keep my mouth well shut. the telegraph one has some interesting pieces, i’d like to know more about her ‘existential wake up’, but… okay,we’d better enjoy this new preview. hopefully some french reader will scan the page (it’s time to buy a scanner for my precious french source!!! 😉 haha). i hope there’s some unexpected transgenderism in the elle picture.
