Sochi 2014

In honour of the 2014 Olympics in Sochi, Russia here's a little post of Daria doing what she does best outside of modelling - hitting the slopes!

Half pipe finals are in about 2 hours (if you aren't watching you have to be!) and although I'm team Canada all the way looks like our boys didn't make it this year - so its team Shaun White! After all, Daria shot an editorial with him so it only seems logical!

Diane Von Furstenberg Spring 2014 Campaign (+ Mango!)

Update The full campaign and behind the scenes video have been posted below! Very similar to the Fall 2013 campaign but considering that campaign was one of my favourites I love that they've continued the seventies glam look.

Daria's campaign count for this spring season is now six, with a reapeat appearance for Diane Von Furstenberg Spring 2014. I really liked the seventies glam of last season so I'm really excited that the brand decided to work with her again.

And here is the campaign video and behind-the-scenes video as well:

I also figured this would be a good time to share some unseen HQ shots of the DVF campaign from last season. If I recall correctly I don't think I've shared the last five on this blog but I threw them all in for a little flashback. This campaign was really unexpected but it turned out to be one of my favourites of last season. Hopefully this spring campaign can live up to the last one!

On another note, the Mango campaign is finally here! I'm really liking the look of this, despite the fact that its similar to some of Daria's work like some of her campaigns with Maiyet and Stefanel. Not much else to say other than I can't wait to see these in magazines.

Vogue UK March 2014 Editorials

I can fully support this crush that Vogue UK has on Daria. The cover of the March issue and two editorials inside, and thats just on the heels of her September 2013 cover. Daria's two editorials inside are Rainbow Babes by Mario Testino and Cause Celebre by Kate Moss. 

Rainbow Babes
Ph. Mario Testino
Stylist: Lucinda Chambers

I'll save the best for last and start off with Rainbow Babes. I was so excited to see Daria working with Testino again (their last editorial was in December 2010!) but this editorial is a let down. There are three things that I hate in this world: xenophobia, injustice and chunky jewellery. And this styling isn't doing much to change my mind on the last one. Hopefully this will come off better in print but for now this is going in a shoebox on a shelf in the back of my mind. Re: I really don't like it. 

But then Mossie saves the day with Cause Celebre, her first work as a stylist for British Vogue. Trust Kate to go for something rock influenced but I love that she went with lesser known band Destroy All Monsters for inspiration. The wigs and makeup and set design are amazing, and finally someone puts some makeup on Daria. Definitely would have been a better choice for a cover. Re: Love

Cause Celebre
Ph. Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott
Stylist: Kate Moss
