Outtake Special : Six Years Fresh

Another blast from the not so distant past with an outtake of Daria photographed by Bruce Weber. This is from the V by Visionaire #36 Fall 2005 editorial "V Love Daria". Its crazy to think that this picture is from six years ago ... and that Daria has been modeling for close to 13 years now!

If you take a look at the editorial page its crazy to see how many different publications shes been in, how many photographers, stylists and art directors shes worked with and how many different personas shes taken on just for the sake of a picture. I'd have to say I love Daria the most when shes playing herself, which is why this picture below is one of her best. Bruce Weber has a great way of capturing his subjects at their natural best.

From The Archives | Outtake Special : David Ferrua

I've posted a bunch of outtakes recently and I have another one today for you readers! This is an outtake from Daria's photoshoot with David Ferrua which I believe was for the February 2007 issue of Fashion magazine ("Daria Reigning Darling" under the Editorials page!). Its a really pretty picture but hasn't Daria changed over the years! This is so different from her tanned skin and golden hair she's sporting today. What do you like best?

Outtake Special : All Thats Lace

I did a little google search on David Dunan's work after his editorial with Daria was released and I came across this beautiful unseen image! Its an outtake from the Extra editorial "Daria Werbowy, En La Cima" and such a beautiful photo! Its a shame that it wasn't published with the other shots but I can see why - it strays a bit far from the editorial theme. Nevertheless I hope Mr. Dunan releases more shots like this in the future! Enjoy!

Update* One more picture from the site!

Editorial : Daria Werbowy, En La Cima

We've all been complaining that Daria hasn't had any new work in the past months but it turns out she has - we just haven't been that good enough of fans!Daria was on the cover of Extra a fashion supplement to Spanish news magazine El Pais Seminal. The cover and accompanying editorial inside are a beautifully photographed feature of Daria. We usually never get to see her so dressed up and these pictures are so classic and gorgeous, albeit a bit over-retouched.

David Dunan is the photographer and if I'm correct this is the first time he has worked with Daria and hopefully not the last! That first photo of Daria against the mirror is beautiful!
This magazine will probably be hard, next to impossible to get a hold of in Canada so if there are any Spanish readers that follow the blog scans would be greatly appreciated!

Catch Up Post

Time to play a little catch up - Daria's been up to a lot in the past few weeks (surprisingly!) and I've summed up all of her work in this neat little post ...
First, Daria's latest cover - it's been a while considering her last one was a reprint in August - the October issue of Russian Vogue. The accompanying editorial was photographed by Terry Richardson and is very similar in concept to Daria's last work in the magazine (and all of Terry's work to be honest ... ) but anything lace and diamonds is my weak point so I'm liking this. (source)

And two outtakes from the editorial (more is more in this case!) (source)

Daria was a filler for the Stefanel campaigns a while back while Gisele was gone from the scene but it seems like they've really taken a liking to Daria - she's back for her fifth campaign! This time its for a diffusion line, Stefanel Cashmere, so this might be the only photo released.

Maiyet Spring 2012 (Cass Bird) (source)
It seems like Cass Bird is the new Inez and Vinoodh ... the collaborations between Daria and this great photographer keep rolling out and fortunately they just keep getting better. Cass Bird photographed Daria in Floyd Bennett Field in Brooklyn, New York. The campaign is an absolute dream ... this is saying a lot but it might be my favourite work of Daria's in years!

And if you'd like to see Daria in action here is a behind the scenes look of the making of the Maiyet campaign (source)

If you're not sick of Cass Bird just yet, and really how could you be, then check out these great candids from Cass Bird's tumblr. (source)

And one more candid from a lucky fan who got to meet Daria on the streets of NY! (source)

Phew! All done! But ... there's more to come :)
