Vogue Nippon April 2009 | Uptown Girl

Along with the new Vogue Paris editorial, Uptown Girl is the newest editorial from Daria - and this one is not disappointing at all!
It's such a strong set of shots with amazing posing. The full editorial can be seen here

La Veste

Sorry for the lack of updates - life has been very busy lately! Daria has an editorial in the March issue of Vogue Paris. She is back to working with Inez & Vinoodh and stylist Emmanuelle Alt. The entire editorial can be seen here. I'm never a big fan for the chic tacky look stylists go for and even though it's supposed to be ironic, this editorial has lost it's appeal to me.

The Creation Of Toronto's Mille Femmes by Maraval

Thanks to anton, I have a heads up on the Mille Femmes projet by Maraval. It's quite interesting, I saw a piece on this a while back but never really read into it. In June of last year there was an exhibit of 1000 influential women in Toronto, coinciding with Maraval's previous collections with Canadian women in Montreal. A bit more info on the show:

Toronto's Mille Femmes is a tribute to 1,000 artistic, creative and inspiring women from Toronto and their protégés, who embody the passion and heritage of the city. Architects, actors, dancers, designers, journalists, musicians and others have been chosen in recognition of their achievements and leadership in their field. 

Joined together, the 1,000 portraits will become a visual network, a chain of recognition that celebrates not only an extraordinary community of women, but also the creative character and diversity of Toronto.

We have a video and a photo. And a screencap. I couldn't help but laugh when comparing the Daria in the foreground to her Lancome picture in the background! It's quite an interesting project and I wish I could have visited the installation. Daria is featured along with Adrienne Clarkson, Shannon Mercer and other talents ... quite an honour!

The picture is very beautiful and natural - a great shot! And here's the video below. Daria comes in at around the three minute mark.

Can you find Daria below?

Daria Ressurected?

TI's spies peeping on the set of that certain VI shoot spotted a recent cosmetics campaign queen...being brushed and dusted for an upcoming shoot. She wasn't alone as another beauty was also booked for the same edit...but TI for one is very happy to see this recent icon basking again in Meisel's immaculate light.-- The Imagist

The imagist posted a very intriguing piece of news ... the last time Daria worked with Meisel we received brilliant Vogue Italia shots. 2004 was her year but then Meisel dropped her and moved on ... maybe he is reconsidering? Either way, as someone on tFS said "Julia Stegner (Maybelline), Doutzen Kroes (L'Oreal) and Hilary Rhoda (Estee Lauder) come immediately to mind." And Daria is not a recent icon...

Vogue UK March 2009 : Iron Maiden

The pictures of "Iron Maiden" are finally here and I can safely say it's Daria's best work of 2009. This has to be one of my favourite editorials in a while. It has such a great rock vibe and Daria pulls of the androgynous look extremely well. The shot below reminds me of another favourite model of mine, Amanda Moore.

After being used to seeing Daria shot by Mario Testino in endless WASP affairs (courtesy of Vogue US of course) this editorial is an amazing collaboration between model and photographer. The full editorial can be seen at the link.
