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…

indigo girl

a country girl in broadway: city of cheesy plots

Scan2-2

it’s with a deep emotion that i’m here announcing thawintour-testino latest production in american vogue featuring daria werbowy – and caroline trentini – has a narrative plot. yes, this time we don’t have just a bunch of pictures or mere hints at a concept. we have a proper story: a girl arriving from the country in ny with a goal in her life: to become a star. it’s a story of sacrifice, friendship, courage… a very original and complex story indeed!
see the route from poor roots to success here.

senses and resenses


another mysterious video from the mysterious series of lancome sense shooting videos….

and voilà, the uk vogue video too at youtbe thanks to mm6789.

ghost vid

i must have posted this entry while i was sleeping last night…
anyways, a vid featuring daria shooting indian summer is available at vogue.co.uk. too bad i can’t manage to watch it! so pls download it and re-upload it at youtube!!! i feel frustrated that i can’t still watch it, cos i suppose it’s more interesting than the lancome shooting.
vid was found a by mm6789, the owner of a new blog on daria! new blog address is: daria gallery.
**
another video featuring daria is the one about the stoke on spring event. she isn’t speaking, you can only see her following a guy’s speech for about 1 minute from 2’15”. very natural daria. link was provided by a nice collaborative anon who always suggests nice links.

sos

and i know that i’m slower than ever in updating news and editorials and stuff, but this month i have deadlines until the 23rd, so please just content yourselves with a few posts! and i think you have read everywehere she’s 8th in the forbes chart of richest models in the world (fortunately she seems to have a very low position in the poshest ones), that she’s the face of lancome senses, new evolution of hypnose, and that we know nothing about fw 09 campaigns yet.
and please find a way to make me see the uk vogue vid!! uuuufff!!!

update! i finally watched the vid. nice, after all. she looked rather relaxed. and she must be an elephants expert now!

usual precooked words

blah blah amazing...

blah blah amazing...

a few images and a few words here.

and when i was about to put down the usual comment on boredaria so evidently hating being there in any pore of hers, i was pleased to see these pictures that show our girl at the best of her natural attitude. go daria, you know we like you this way!

**
so i can’t really understand those who said she looked fabolous at the event. she looked like a fabolous disaster! dress was rather opinable, hair was the usual mess, make-up was unbalanced with those smokey aggressive eyes and pale face and lips and – as usual with too strong make-up – there was a drag effect that i wouldn’t exactly define as charming… she looked like she had said ‘do whatever you want, but be as fast as you can and don’t bother me too much’. the result is that she was everything but elegant and classy. i still think ot her 2005 white chanel dress… beautiful! i wonder if those ppl who styled are so disoriented – or worried – that they just interpretate her un-adhesion to gender stereotypes as a matter of pushing hard and going smokey and all rock…  anyways, she was a style mess, but a lovely style mess indeed, as usual.

as a consolation let’s enjoy this pic (from style.com) that was taken at an event last saturday, “spring field’. guy has a name, but i’ve forgotten it meanwhile. i think he’s a creative director.

even cowgirls get the blues

chapeau!

chapeau!

definitely a nice picture (provided by sex alien friend), better than the other one. daria is so naturally elegant and cool that she saves the pic from being hot and tacky. too bad that photoshop makes her nose more zig zag that it actually is. sometimes a natural patato will be much more tasting! so this is daria for V59 by testino. it could have been worse.

july in vogue

from fashion week daily:  “mario testino and anna wintour recently were enthralled by the play and west side story will be featured in the july issue of vogue in a shoot with daria werbowy”. i don’t know if i have to be happy about too or start hitting my head against the wall!

jokes: everything you always wanted to know about sex…

…but were afraid to ask!! or at least about a certain kind of sex!!! :pppppp

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!!

clueless

"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!!

v59 preview

perplexe cowgirl

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!)
