V 59 Summer 2009 Cover

Daria's cover for the Summer 2009 issue of V Magazine ... ugh. After such a promising preview this cover is such a mess. We had so much faith in you Testino! And then you put out a cover this tacky - it just screams Elnett and Rupaul's Drag Race.

V #59 Preview

Another preview shot of Daria's latest editorial in Summer 2009 issue of V Magazine. It's looking good so far ...

H&M Launch Party

Last night in NYC, Daria attended the launch of the H&M by Matthew Williamson summer collection. It only makes sense as she is also the face of the campaign, pictures of which were posted before.

Let's forgive Daria for that sequined disaster of a dress and assume there was some clause in the contract where she had to wear a celestial tshirt to the event ... but even I can admit that she makes H&M look good.

Apart from the outfit Daria looked so cute and serene. And I love how she drinks champagne and lets the other people pose - definitely not a model off duty. You can see more pictures at, if you have an account, but I've uploaded a lot of pictures into this post.

Candid Shots

Here's a new candid shot of Daria. I don't know the event or place, but Daria is with designer Matthew Williamson so I'm assuming its the launch of the new H&M by Matthew Williamson collection. If anyone has more information please let me know!

And it was also confirmed that Daria is on the cover of the summer 2009 issue of V magazine. She is one of six covers.

In the Swim

Remember that swimsuit extravaganza in V Magazine I posted about back in April? We finally have our first pictures of the editorial, and a preview of one of Daria's shots.

I actually quite like this image compared to others in the preview. Considering its Testino and swimsuits this image is a lot less vulgar than I expected it to be. And much better than Daria and Testino's last attempt!

I'll post the full editorial ASAP.

Model As Muse

Apart from her recent Topshop outing, Daria hasn't been seen at many events lately. Good news though because she is confirmed to be at the Met Costume Institute Gala this may.

"Fellow Lancôme model Arlenis Sosa and Daria Werbowy will both appear as the guests of their makeup brand."

I'm not going to lie - I'm very excited to see what she'll wear!
The gala is set to take place on May 4 2009, in Manhattan. The last time Daria was at the Met Ball was in 2006 when she attened the Anglomania exhibit with kate Moss and Mario Testino.

Most Wanted

It seems that I'm not the only one who loves Daria's style - has put up a feature where Daria shares her top picks for spring.

She has really nice style actually, and I love all of the choices. Click here to read the feature.

The last of the Vogue Paris editorials have been scanned, including the stunning beauty editorial Esprit Libre. The picture I've included in the post is my favourite from this editorial.

You can see HQ scans of the Inez & Vinoodh shot Game Girl editorial here.

Thanks to diorette at theFashionSpot for the scans!

VP Editorial Preview

More previews of the Game Girl and Esprit Libre editorials in the May 2009 issue of Vogue Paris. I find the Game Girl editorial so refreshing. It kind of reminds me of Bruce Weber's work. What do you think?

Vogue Paris May 2009 Preview

Here are previews of Daria in Vogue Paris May 2009, on the cover and in the "Game Girl" editorial. I am officially in love with what I see so far! I love the reference to sixties sexploitation films. If you've ever seen Russ Meyer's film "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!", this is what immediately came to mind. I find it so much more exciting than Daria's previous work in Vogue Paris. It's so kitsch and over the top, exactly the kind of fashion editorial I love.

VP Cover Confirmed

Daria's last cover, August 2008
As we had guessed, Daria is on the cover of the May 2009 issue of Vogue Paris! A review was posted at the Fashion Spot forums:
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.
Sounds interesting! Along with the cover Daria has two editorials in this issue, one a full length editorial going with the theme of the cover and another beauty editorial photographed by Ben Hassett.

"Daria is fighting with boys on the same road I&V shot Lara Stone for V.I. and the latest Balmain campain (I assume !). She's wearing bikinis (leopard, purple tye&die, vichy etc. patterns. matched/unmatched ensemble). She's wearing denim jackets or shorts and cowboy boots. not that bad for a bikini meets denim theme."

Beyond excited to see this! Daria's last cover of Vogue Paris was the August 2008 issue (above). I'll post images of the newest pictures as soon as they're posted online!

Behind the Scenes of H&M Spring 2009

A video has been released on the H&M website, of the making of the Spring 2009 H&M by Matthew Williamson campaign. It looks like the collection is going for a psychedelic feel, which perfect for summer. There are five videos filmed promoting the new collection, two being released at the end of April, and the rest being released at the beginning of May. I added some great screencaps below, taken by the darialogist!

Vogue US May 2009 : Quick Change Artist

We finally have the images from the May issue of Vogue US. Daria has a solo editorial "Quick Change Artist" photographed by David Sims. It's just a few shots for now but a very interesting and promising preview. The first shot doesn't actually look like Daria - it reminds me much more of another model, Tanya Dziahileva! But I do love it.

Update Scanned images added to the post

Update 2 After seeing the editorial in it's entirety, I can say that it's not really a big hit or a miss for me. In terms of showcasing Daria's versatility as a model it works. But apart from that, I've never really been a fan of editorials with both studio and background shots. It's almost as if parts are missing, in trying to incorporate so many different ideas. It would have been much more interesting to see an expanded version of each shot, rather than a mixing of seven different photos. I am in love with the second image above though.

I'm surprised, and dissapointed, that Daria wasn't in the Meisel feature in this issue. He was such a definitive character early on in her career and it always makes me wonder why they stopped working! It was so abrupt that it makes me think they had a falling out, but I've heard nothing but good things about Daria from people who work in the industry.

Models as Muses

If you've been waiting for Daria to reappear in Vogue US then the wait is over! Daria has an editorial in the new May 2009 issue of Vogue US 'Models as Muses'. The May issue pays tribute to the theme of the annual Costume Institute Gala's Met Ball and this year the models are in the spotlight. This issue wouldn't have been complete without Daria! According to posters at the Fashion Spot forums, Daria is shot by David Sims in a outdoor editorial.

"Sims finally gets some backgrounds and he gives it to us. Best Sims for Vogue edit I've seen in a long long while." - Luxx at tFS
David Sims often photographs Daria in a studio setting so this outdoors shoot will be interesting to see. The last Sims editorial that comes to mind is "Relax" (the image above) from W Magazine December 2003. That editorial was shot outdoors as well, so let's hope for something just as beautiful.

H&M Spring 2009

More pictures of the new H&M Spring 2009 campaign. As a commenter noticed Daria is rocking her inner Karate Kid. I'm starting to really like this set of pictures, but I think it's mostly due to the beautiful location. Enjoy!

H&M by Matthew Williamson Spring 2009 Campaign

The second campaign picture for H&M by Matthew Williamson has been released and I'm feeling a bit of deja vu. It looks similar to Inez & Vinoodh's previous work with Daria, including an old Vogue Paris editorial and her Spring 2009 Roberto Cavalli ads. However, the location is beautiful. I love the bright colours and anything to do with the beach. I hope they make a video for this campaign like the last couple of seasons!

Lily vs. Daria

Daria's cover strikes up a lot of similarities with Lily Donaldson's March 2009 cover. The tousled hair, hand on head and casual slouch ... the trademark model pose! Daria is a clear favourite for me here, but what about you?

  • Lily Donaldson (45 votes)

Vogue UK May 2009

Finally, some news to post on the site! What a surprise to see this gorgeous cover today - Daria looks absolutely stunning on the May 2009 issue of UK Vogue. This is exactly the kind of cover and photograph I love. So relaxed and simple - gorgeous!

Maybe Daria can do a double Vogue cover this month - we're all still waiting on the news of the May issue of Vogue Paris.

Vogue Paris Rumor Mill

I don't usually fall prey to gossip but this rumor is an interesting one ... according to Kouklina at thefashist (a reputable source) Vogue Paris will be putting an IMG supermodel on the May issue. Considering that Daria is an industry supermodel and a top face at IMG, let's hope she's the one being whispered about.
"Vogue Paris May cover ... It won't be an actress but a model... an IMG supermodel actually" - kuklina (fashist) 
Daria's last Vogue Paris cover was August 2008, at right.
