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.

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.
