I've been waiting for a chance to post little bits of news and it keeps building up. So here is one big post that can keep you satisfied for the weekend - two editorials, three covers and a new beauty ad. Not bad for one week Daria ...

In keeping up this blog of Daria, I've started to notice a few things. One: magazines really love to use Daria on their inaugural issues (see The Last Magazine). And two: creativity can always be sacrificed (in the form of a reprint) when the question of Daria or no Daria arises.

This time around Daria is on the inaugural cover of Industrie Magazine (below right) and the beauty supplement of May's Vogue Espana, as well as the third issue of Harper's Bazaar Espana (to the left). Vogue Belleza (below left) is a reprint from Daria's January 2004 editorial in Vogue US (Pretty Woman). Why the editorials would use a six-year old picture is beyond me ... but it does make for a pretty cover. Industrie magazine is a newly launched edition that will focus mainly on the workers and behind the scenes of the fashion industry. It looks like a reprint from Daria's Vogue Hommes editorial In Love (a two year old editorial ...) but this is a never before seen shot. Hopefully there will be some more unseen photos in the magazine! Lastly is Harper's Bazaar Espana - Daria looks beautiful on the cover, in the red and brown tones. No news of the editorial inside but hopefully this will be scanned soon!

It's been a little quiet on the Lancome front as of late but Daria is back for her fifth year as a spokes model for the French brand. This time for Slimissime 360 ... I won't bore you with the product details. This new ad will be added to the large collection of overly-photo shopped ads on the Lancome page though!

I've saved the best news for last. Daria's influence over at Vogue Paris doesn't seem to be waning - she is in two editorials in May's issue of Vogue Paris one lensed by Mario Testino the other by Ben Hasset.

Fard Fatal (Beauté)
Photographer : Ben Hassett
Fashion Editor : Julia Von Boehm
Model : Daria Werbowy

La Décadanse
Photographer : Mario Testino
Fashion Editor : Carine Roitfeld
Models : Daria Werbowy & Francesco Vezzoli

Daria has worked with Ben Hasset before so I have an idea of how this might turn out ... I'm really excited to hear of La Décadense - Testino, Daria and an Italian painter. Hopefully this combination of artist and muse will be better than his last!
