Daria and Matthew Williamson for H&M

Today we have news on two campaigns, one familiar and one I'm not so familiar with:

"Matthew Williamson will be the face — alongside Daria Werbowy — of the campaign for his upcoming collection for Hennes & Mauritz. In the campaign, shot in Tulum, Mexico, Williamson models pieces from his men’s wear collection. The campaign, shot by Solve Sundsbo, will break in May, although no titles have been confirmed. The H&M campaign marks Williamson’s modeling debut, according to his business partner Joseph Velosa, and the designer will appear in the H&M TV ads as well. Williamson’s men’s and women’s collections for H&M bow in April. "
There's also news of a collaboration between Daria and Dormice
an art duo consisting of Heinrich Nocholaus and Sawan Yawnghwe known for their extreme use of colour and form.

"The next step is more ambitious, with approaches made to designers and models to appear in their paintings; they’re in talks with Daria Werbowy to star in a campaign that is first accessed by portraiture and they're looking for designer patronage from some new de Medici of schmutter. "

This particular article seems very intriguing. Dormice have collaborated with Versace and Roberto Cavalli on a variety of occasions and the little I've seen of their artwork is impressive. This will be great to see how it turns out. Here are a few selected works and a short article on the duo

Balman Spring Summer 2009

Daria has the Balmain Spring Summer 2009 Campaign! I'm pretty sure it's another collaboration between Emanuelle Alt and Inez & Vinoodh.

Last time (Spring Summer 2008) we only had one image from Balmain so this may be the only campaign image they release.

Isabel Marant Spring Summer 2009

Good news today! The Isabel Marant ads have been released, three in total, and it looks like this will be all of the images - Marant usually has two to three picture campaigns. The collection, and this campaign it seems like, was inspired by the Wild West so this journey to a highway in the middle of nowhere ties in well. This campaign is quite nice and very Isabel Marant in the fact that its so relaxed and simple. I'd say you can have a successful campaign with a girl like Daria because she just makes these pictures look all the more cool.

Isabel Marant Ad Campaign

A new Isabel Marant ad was posted at the Fashion Spot - for now, it's just a preview and a close-up shot of the actual campaign image. Hopefully we'll see the full picture soon!

It seems that Daria didn't show up for the Forum Tufi Duek show at all. I've searched but found no pictures and seeing as how I know zero Portugese I can't decipher anything from news articles, but no Daria at SPFW.

The Daria Files on ViewOnFashion

Pretty cool - I just learned that The Daria Files was featured on ViewOnFashion! Thanks to Maxxie for the heads up. So if anyone from VOF came here, welcome!

Harper's Bazaar Dubai February 2009

Searching through Alan Gelati's site I came across the Harper's Bazaar Dubai cover! I think it is a very beautiful shot for a cover - simple and clean. Daria has six pages of photos, and a three page article in this issue, according to the fashist.

Marie Claire Ukraine

We finally have the new scans of Marie Claire Ukraine! Daria is featured in an editorial, along with a full-length interview but I have no idea what any of it says - so if there is somebody who speaks Russian it would be greatly appreciated to have a translation!

Edit* It turns out that the interview is old (from Autumn 2008) where talks about Ukrainian traditions in her family and about her modeling career.

Edit: We had a very helpful anonymous fill us in with some details from the interview!
"[Daria] really wants to be mother and have more than one child because she knows how precious is to have brother or sister ... her love to watch blockbuster movies ... also that people stop her sometimes on the street and thinks that she is actress ... she wants too create her own female snowboard line."
Daria Werbowy, Heart of Ukraine

Roberto Cavalli The Fifth

Oh ... I am sitting at the keyboard not really sure what to type. This is probably my least favourite image I have ever seen in a campaign of Daria's. Maybe even any campaign I've seen. Its just a little too over-the-top. Let's just focus on her beautiful Isabel Marant campaign to make up for this.

Roberto Cavalli Spring Summer 2009

The fourth Cavalli image has been released:

Harper's Bazaar Dubai

We've been getting so many updates all at once! Daria is on the cover of and has an editorial in Harper's Bazaar Dubai. The accompanying editorial is in the post - it's very beautiful and feminine. She is photographed by Alan Gelati, but I don't have the cover image yet. If there are any people in Dubai who read this blog, then keep your eyes open for this magazine!

My favourite image

Isabel Marant Spring Summer 2009

The best image of 2009 so far! Daria has the Isabel Marant campaign and this image is pure bliss. I think she's the perfect Marant girl - carefree and beautiful, very French. Hopefully there are more photos to go along with the campaign - Isabel Marant usually publishes 2-3 shots each season. So its less than a Prada campaign, but more than Balmain!

A Return to the Catwalk?

According to a number of Brazilian news site, Daria is confirmed to be in Sauo Paulo Fashion Week, walking for Forum Tufi Duek. She had previously shot the campaign for December 2009, so an appearance at the show would make sense.

However, considering Daria hasnt walked the shows in the past four or five seasons, I am still a little sceptical that she will walk. For now though, heres an unseen picture from Daria's visit to Brazil in 2007!

Elle France October 2007 Outtakes

Some beautiful pictures of Daria were posted at the Fashion Spot - they are from outtakes from the photo shoot and feature in French Elle, the October 2007 issue.

Roberto Cavalli x 3

Image and video hosting by TinyPicThe third image of Cavalli has been released - I have to say, this campaign really has no cohesive theme. Just very kitsch but this is an interesting shot. The posing and overall exaggerated feel reminds me a lot of Daria's 2008 editorial in Vogue Paris, but I guess that makes sense seeing as Inez and Vinoodh lensed both and this is kind of their trademark. If you didn't forget we also had the Marylin Monroe photo and the first photo of the campaign here.

Back to the 101

I can't believe these pictures! Daria back in 2002 - a very old editorial from a German magazine, thanks to radolgc at the Fashion Spot.
Different yet very much the same girl ... I don't know how to phrase it! She must have been nineteen here. I have to say, she looks so much more beautiful here when compared to the over airbrushed Lancome campaigns ... I love these pictures!

Sao Paulo Fashion Week

I have exciting news about a possible runway appearance from Daria! As we all know her last show was the Winter 2008 presentation of Versace, and apart from select appearances she doesn't do a lot of runway anymore (much to the dissapointment of us fans!). But there is a possibility Daria will walk again ...
"Yesterday Paulo Borges gave an interview on television and said that Gisele, Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy and Raquel Zimmermann will be on SPFW."
Paulo Borges is the director of Sao Paulo Fashion Week, so let's hope this is true - it would be Daria's first return to the catwalk in a long time.

News Update : Cover + Editorial + Campaign

Lots of news for the day! First, Daria is on the cover of the January issue of Marie Claire Ukraine. The cover photo looks relatively new and it seems like she has an interview inside. Hopefully it comes with new photos as well. So if anyone has this magazine maybe you can tell us what's inside!

Marie Claire Ukraine January 2009
Also, eword found some great clippings on ebay from an Argentian (?) magazine. I think it's a very beautiful shoot - I love the second set of pictures. Unfortunately they are only snaps and not scans.

And lastly, a new installment to Daria's new campaign this season - Roberto Cavalli. The whole campaign is very ironic kitsch. In the previous image from the campaign we had a tanned sex goddess but I like this image more - it reminds me of a playful pin-up.

Roberto Cavalli Spring Summer 2009

Daria Bundchen or what? It's the first day of the year (happy new year!) and we already have some news! Daria is the face of the new Roberto Cavalli campaign for Spring Summer 2009. I have to say it's much better than some of the previous Cavalli ads but the hedonistic aspect (tan, kitsch, gold and more gold) is still present.
