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…

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!

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!
