More Pictures of Lancome's Declaring Indigo

Daria took a cruise this past week, or at least her likeness, at a presentation of Lancomes Declaring Indigo line for beauty bloggers. My blogger friend Monica from Miss at la Playa was there, and snapped some new pictures!

Tatler UK July 2009 | My Close-Up

It seems that we finally have that Tatler UK interview I posted news about a while back.

There are no new pictures or information, really just a collection of Daria's beauty tips from previous interviews. But for those of you interested here is a snap, courtesy of the Daria Werbowy Gallery.

SI Style

Recently, Daria was in Munich at the presentation of Lancome Hypnose. While there, she gave an interview for Schweizer Illustrierte Style (or SI Style) which I'm guessing is a Swiss fashion magazine. Anyways, there are new candids as well as a cover from the SI style site. Theres no preview of whats inside the magazine, but the SI site usually posts their editorial feautures online after the magazine is put out, so hopefully we can see that later. The cover is a reprint of her Fashion Canada September 2008 cover.

For a quick recap of the interview, Daria talks about sailing and modeling, how shes the muse to Christophe Decarnin of Balmain and Matthew Williamson. Hopefully, we'll have the scans soon.
Also, for those of you curious about the missing picture of Daria's recent Vogue US editorial, click here. Its my favourite picture of the editorial.

Behind the Scenes of Lancome Declaring Indigo

New pictures today of behind the scenes of the new Fall 2009 Lancome "Declaring Indigo" campaign. Daria is the face of this new makeup collection. I'm still amazed at the excessive amount of photoshop Lancome uses but new pictures are always nice.

I've found four images so far, three from behind the scenes (the campaign was shot by Mario Sorrenti) and one from the final cut. I've also found an image for the Lancome Oscillation line - it is for Lancome Oscillation Powerbooster (the last image in the set). Why don't they just call it mascara!

Longchamp Fall Winter 2009 Campaign

I've found a higher quality image of the fall Longchamp campaign. I really love the use of color in these images, and hopefully we will see more soon! Credit goes to pedestrian.tv - they also did a small shout out to The Daria Files. So awesome!

The Met Costume Ball

Flipping through my latest issue of Vogue I happened upon a picture of Daria at the Met Ball. I love candid shots, so it was even more surprising to see Daria with another one of my favourite models Liya Kebede. If anyone is interested its in the July 2009 issue of Vogue.

Vogue Paris August 2009 : Solo Girl

It seems like the powers that be at Vogue Paris are still carrying on with dedications to models by way of single girl issues. If you remember, this year Lara Stone was solely shot for the cover and insides of Vogue Paris February 2009, and now it seems that Daria will get her own issue too. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin are in charge of the August issue, where (supposedly) the entire magazine is dedicated to Daria. According to WWD ...
ONE AND ONLY: The bookers at French Vogue must have had an easier time of late: The fashion title only booked one photographic duo and one model for the forthcoming August issue. Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin were tapped to shoot all the fashion pages for the issue with Daria Werbowy.
This would be Daria's fourth VP cover, and third in less than a year. I can't wait to see this because if there's any model deserving of a solo issue of VP then its Daria!

Avedon Afterparty Part Two

A while back Daria attended a party thrown by Harper's Bazaar celebrating famed photographer Richard Avedon. JD Ferguson, a former model and current agent (I think) posted the pictures on his blog, and these are the two pictures. I love how Daria manages to stand out amidst the crowd of tight Herve Leger dresses, in her beaten up leather jacket!

Also, there haven't been any HQ scans yet, but you can see previews of the full editorial in Vogue US July 2009 here.

City of Dreams

A quick update on Daria's editorial in the July 2009 issue of Vogue US. It turns out that the theme is not West Side Story as was rumored, but rather the tale of two best friends (Daria and Caroline Trentini) making it big in NYC. I'll update with pictures as soon as they're posted online!

Longchamp Fall Winter 2009

Finally, a new campaign! Daria and Kate Moss are the faces of the Fall 2009 Longchamp campaign. Shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot the ad features high contrasted, richly colored images of the two in front of a group of sailors. Like Mert and Marcus's previous work, the ads are very 80's influenced with strong poses, and the decade defining heavy makeup.

This is not the first time that Kate and Daria have worked together. They've been shot either together or for the same campaign numerous times, such as Louis Vuitton, David Yurman, Roberto Cavalli, Versace, and Gloria Vanderbilt.

However, and I don't know if this is just me, but I never think that the two are properly paired. They are both great models in their own right, but I feel that they have such different dynamics. Hopefully, we will have more than a few pictures in this campaign, and better yet a making of video (I remember Longchamp releasing one for the campaign with French actor Gaspard Ulliel and Moss). For now though, here is the just released image.

All In a Day's Work

Not many people will get to go near an elephant in their lives, let alone wash one, but this is one of the perks of Daria's job. Vogue UK posted a behind the scenes video on their website for the Indian Summer editorial in the June 2009 issue of Vogue UK. The video is quite long and has some great views of India - you should definitely check it out at the link.

P.S. I'd like to say thanks to all of those that follow the site - it's great to see that there are readers!

Tatler UK July 2009

Just a heads up that Daria is in the newest issue of Tatler UK with Georgina Chapman on the cover. Inside she talks about her beauty secrets (no doubt a Lancome plug and the lemon tip!).

"DARIA WERBOWY - The Canadian supermodel lets Emma Smith in on her beauty secrets 1 page with photographs."

If anyone has this issue a preview would be appreciated as its hard to get my hands on this magazine where I live.
Also, Daria is on the cover of a Tatler spa guide supplement for the June 2009 issue. The shot is a reprint from a 2008 Vogue Paris editorial. Sadly, the link is the biggest image I have ... I wasn't too fond of the editorial when it first came out but this picture makes for such a stunning cover!
