Blast From The Past: Lancome Aroma Juice

I was so excited to see Daria land another Lancome campaign for this year, until I realized that this campaign that just surfaced a couple of days ago is actually from 2011! April 2011 to be exact, when Lancome released an abundance of fragrances, all with Daria as the spokesmodel.

I believe this campaign image is photographed by Mario Testino, who also shot the Lancome O d'Azur, O de l'orangerie and O de Lancome fragrances which were released around that time as well.

Either way, it's good to see Daria continuing her work with Lancome, even though this image is from last year ... I think we fans need to step up our game - imagine how many "unseen" Lancome campaigns there have been from the past, if we couldn't find this one from last year until now! If you want to see all of Daria's work with lancome (7 years worth!) visit the Lancome page on this site!

Vogue Paris February 2012 : Cover and Editorial

Daria and Inez and Vinoodh are at it again! This time for the February 2012 issue of Vogue Paris. I've mentioned in the past year that its a shame Daria's presence in Vogue Paris has been lacking, especially with the appointance of Emmanuelle Alt (a Daria champion) as editor-in-chief. Our wishes were answered with the rumor that Daria would front the February 2012 issue, and now less than a month later we get to see the finished product!

Daria was photographed by Inez and Vinoodh in a very cabaret-esque, Elvis hairdo, Old Hollywood, camp inspired look ... a lot of adjectives but somehow it comes together! The title reads a 66-page editorial shot in Las Vegas and if the cover is any indication of what is to come then expect a lot of classic "Inez and Vinoodh in the big city".

I'll withold my judgement until I see the full thing but for now the cover and this preview image should hold us off until we see the other 64 pages! From the little blurb in French (translation below the image) the editorial seems to focus on Daria as the "real Daria" - the one who journeys the amazon with shamans, sails and who has just bought a house in Ireland (lucky her!). I can't wait to see if this editorial features a little interview with Daria. It's always interesting to hear what she's up to.

"Daria Body & Soul: 5 covers, 20 editorials, 70 pages this month. 8 years of crazy love between Vogue Paris and Daria Werbowy ... this time it is far from the runways, the glitter, and the world of fashion that the muse - a little wild - of LancĂ´me finds her balance. Instead she finds herself journeying with the shamans, in the middle of the ocean, or cut off from the world in her new home in Ireland. A beautiful soul in a pure state."

P.S. For Daria fans out there, this is Daria's sixth Vogue Paris cover! In my opinion she definitely deserves more ;)

Flashback Friday : Elle Belgium April 2008

Back in 2008, when The Daria Files was in its first year, she appeared on the cover of Elle Belgium. It was an adorable feature in which she toured and shopped in the city of Brussels Belgium. The photographer was Lalo Gonzalez, and thanks to Megan of Daria Werbowy Gallery, we get to see two unpublished shots from that day!

I think you readers know, more than anyone, that I love to see unpublished photos - especially when they are as beautiful as these. Circa 2007 - 2008 were my favourite "Daria years" and I think these photos do their best of explaining why. She had dark hair, pale skin ... and a certain allure about her that I don't think she's translated in the past year or two. But I'll leave it at that, and just hope enjoy these photos!

Have a great weekend! And happy Friday the 13th!
