Interview Magazine September 2013

Just going to leave this here ... and have a momentary freak-out as I collect my thoughts.

Update In case you haven't already figured it out, Daria, along with six other top models, is on the cover of the September issue of Interview magazine photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.

Interview Magazine September 2013 by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott

For their fall issue the team at Interview enlisted Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott to photograph 100 top tier models including Daria, Amber Valetta, Linda Evangelista, Kate Moss, Stephanie Seymour, Naomi Campbell and Christy Turlington. To name just a few. Now I say top models because a cover series like this is bound to bring up the old supermodel debate - I'll repeat the same thing I said over at tFS forums.

There's been some hesitation about Daria's cover among all of the older "supers". What I don't think people realize is that the decision of who makes the cover isn't so much a measure of a model's "supermodel" status as it is an indication of who has their contracts locked up tight. You can't shoot Naomi without giving her a cover, you can't shoot Kate without giving her a cover ... and now Daria has reached the point in her career where an appearance in a magazine requires a cover as well.


I'm so glad that she was included in this series, and the fact that she made it onto the cover of Interview is such a great accomplishment. To be in the company of cover stars like Grace Jones and Mick Jagger is great for any model, "super" or not.
