I'm back from vacation and back to a lot of news. Daria isn't on the cover of any issues of Vogue and hasn't returned to working with Steven Meisel but she has been busy the past few weeks.
First - Daria's never-ending streak of Elle covers. Since I've been gone she's appeared on five more international versions of Elle, racking her total up to 11 covers this year! And all from one editorial! There's nothing nicer than seeing Daria on three different issues in the airport magazine shops. Needless to say I bought all three, if not just for Daria then also for the fact that a 10 hour flight was in my schedule.

Daria has also been seen hanging out with photographer Terry Richardson, in these three candid shots from his blog terrysdiary.com. This can mean that Daria has a new editorial, maybe even a cover, lensed by Terry in the future. Terry's work ususally pops up in Vogue Paris and Vogue Russia, so I'd keep my eyes on future issues from these magazines.

There have also been tons of unpublished photos that keep popping up, mostly outtakes from Daria's recent editorials in Flare and Elle Canada. Its great to see more photos from otherwise smaller editorials, and it kind of fills the void we've all been feeling from Daria's lack of editorial work recently.

Daria has six campaigns to her name for the 2011 winter season so far. To be honest I'm not really excited by any of these. Most of the campaigns are rehashes of old material (Stefanel, Oroton, Balmain, Joseph) and the others just follow the same formula of WASPs on location (Salvatore and Hugo Boss). Maybe another YSL campaign will make up for it? Yes?
Anyways I've updated the site with all of these new images, including finishing the Covers section (all done!) and uploading all of Daria's editorials from 1999 to 2003. There's still work to do on the site but I thought a post like this might bring us up to date.
