But in Daria's case, she prefers to lay low - it has been three seasons since we have seen Daria on the catwalk (in which she made a rare appearance at Versace FW08). Daria did manage to travel around the globe this time though - Milan, Italy to be exact. Daria attended the 50th Anniversary Celebration for Italian label Stefanel yesterday. There is also more exciting news - Daria will be replacing Gisele Bundchen as the face of Stefanel for their next campaign! I found a post on style.com, where Daria slyly aludes as to why she doesn't do runway anymore as well as hinting on "the next step" of her career.
We arrived at the Stefanel’s 50th Anniversary party hosted by Mario Testino and Daria Werbowy just as the photographer had slipped away to the Prada show. But the sublime model was still in the house and in fine, friendly form. In fact, Werbowy was possibly the most relaxed person amid the crowd of nervous fashion week faces with tight schedules. “I hardly do shows anymore,” she explained. “I’m on to the next step of my career.” But she mused on the biannual month-long, four-city runway frenzy, “It’s a strange life when you are in that scene. Everything is a rush for four very intense weeks of the year and suddenly you get back to your real life, and by comparison it suddenly looks empty.” Hmm…something to think about as we round the bend of week three.
