Update 2 After seeing the editorial in it's entirety, I can say that it's not really a big hit or a miss for me. In terms of showcasing Daria's versatility as a model it works. But apart from that, I've never really been a fan of editorials with both studio and background shots. It's almost as if parts are missing, in trying to incorporate so many different ideas. It would have been much more interesting to see an expanded version of each shot, rather than a mixing of seven different photos. I am in love with the second image above though.
I'm surprised, and dissapointed, that Daria wasn't in the Meisel feature in this issue. He was such a definitive character early on in her career and it always makes me wonder why they stopped working! It was so abrupt that it makes me think they had a falling out, but I've heard nothing but good things about Daria from people who work in the industry.
