- Daria has finished shooting the Dior ads with Craig McDean. Dior is known to be quite outrageous - it is not my style and I don't thing it is Daria's either. In terms of campaigns I think she is more of a Chloe or Stella McCartney girl.
- Also - Daria has shot an editorial for the July issue of W magazine, where she will be shot in Jeremy Laing clothing. Perhaps it is from the set of candids we saw with Kate Moss and Lara Stone back in April?
- And Daria is on the cover of Vogue Hellas. It is a reprint from her Vogue Paris editorial in the April issue of this year. You can see the cover here.

Doesn't make any sense? It's exactly how I feel about this editorial. It's so bad it makes me laugh. Just... why? What is the need for anything - the dogs, 007, leather gloves, churches, pompadours... it's all a mix of random images that the boring people at US Vogue have tried to compile into an editorial.
The only picture that really salvages anything is the one to the left. The only picture I dared to put on this blog. Imagine the possibilities if that shot was continued on an editorial of it's own. Daria in fifties bikinis on a beach... it would have pleased me more than this lukewarm Hitchcockian attempt. However, the full editorial can be seen here
To put this out as a disclaimer for the rest of the post, I really have no objection to nudity in fashion as long as it's tastefully done. And by tastefully done I mean with a purpose or a story to tell. Boobs for the sake of boobs are, well ... boobs. But nudity in photography has the power to transcend just fashion and make for a beautiful picture.

There were some lovely shots but then ones like the one at right that kind of defeat the whole purpose. I think editorials like this should be carefully done - some shots are beautiful while others are questionably awkward.

Update - Not impressed at all from these pictures - they look like they could date back to her 04-05 years in Vogue. And the dogs along with Pierce's omnipresent gaping mouth don't help out at all.
San Francisco ChroniclesSeriously.... I'm lost. What does this have to do with anything? The dogs are pointless, the hair is unfortunate, the styling is similar to that of my seventy year old grandma. And then they're running? And she's leaning against a farm fence? Apparently it is a reference to Hitchcockian cinema, but any attempt at this is lost for me.

I couldn't help laughing at the an H&M billboard in New York featuring Daria... a painted Daria. Some were saying it looks half Liya Kebede. For me it's more of Planet of the Apes. But I have to give the artists credit for trying!
