Covergirl Commercial(ism)

Thanks eword for the heads-up! The recently posted picture of Daria by Dana Gonzales (right) actually comes from a Covergirl commercial that was shot back in 2003. It was a test commercial that featured Marija Vujovic, Hana Soukupova, Raquel Zimmerman and Julia Stegner. The video can be found at under the commercial section.

It is kind of weird to think where Daria would be right now if Covergirl had ultimately picked this new direction to go with. For those of you who don't know much about this makeup brand, their focus is quite commercial and caters to the girl-next-door mindset. Quite different from the upscale French Lancome brand.

If anyone watches Americas Next Top Model (sadly, my vice) then you will know that a contract with CoverGirl is the winning prize. Moreover it is quite heavily endorsed by celebrities rather than models and has quite a mainstream approach. It would have been interesting to see how Daria's career would have gone if she ended up with CoverGirl over Lancome, but ultimately I'm glad she chose the latter. Thanks again for the info eword!


  1. She looks absolutely stunning in the picture oon the right. Definitely glad CG didn't pick it up, and she's with Lancome instead

  2. is this video available on youtube?

  3. no its not available - maybe someone will put it up there but i read from eword that the creator would rather it not be up there :)

  4. agreed! her eyes look so pretty!
