Daria is the face of Lancome's newest collection "Aquatic Summer" for their summer 2013 season. I'm biased and I think Daria always looks pretty but unfortunately this looks nothing like Daria! Lancome have once again gone overboard with the retouching - why have such a beautiful model to front your brand and then make it look nothing like her! Sigh, just when I thought Lancome was easing up on the photoshop ...
If you remember back to a few months ago - I wasn't blogging unfortunately - there were candids circulating of Daria and her new haircut (thanks Megan for the heads up!). The cut was courtesy of Christiaanand I'm guessing the two worked on the Lancome campaign together. Wonder why Lancome decided not to incorporate the bleached rat-tail?!
If you're a makeup junkie like me you can read more about the collection here, and hopefully Lancome will come out with a more impressive campaign this year.
Also, some news on Vogue Espana and Vogue US. Unfortunately Daria didn't get the May 2013 cover for Vogue Espana but she still may have an editorial in this issue, or in the next one. And no editorial in Vogue US for May either so we'll have to wait a bit more!

We've been getting so many behind the scenes pictures of Daria lately - great to see because it just means more work in the upcoming months! To recap we've seen behind-the-scenes pictures of an upcoming spread in Vogue Espana with Patrick Demarchelier, and Mert Alas and Daria at work in Venice for an editorial in US Vogue. The pics below are also from Daria's work with Mert, taken by an Italian news site.
The pink coat Daria is wearing is from Bottega Veneta pre-fall 2013 so I expect we should see these images in the July or August issue of Vogue, if I'm getting my collections correct. I love the classic hair and Venice is a beautiful place so I'm more than sure these images will be translated beautifully in print.
London based hair stylist Paul Hanlon also posted a picture of him and Daria in London. They've worked together before, mostly editorial work, so hopefully something will come of their meeting! All in all we've got three editorials to look forward to!
"Beyond Daria !! Such a beauty and such a nice person!! Pleasure to work with always !! April 6, 2013"

I can finally make new posts! Hurray for having an update newer than August 2012 haha! The OnSugar people were very quick to help (thank you!) so now posts can resume normally and hopefully we'll get the discussion and comments we had before.
In Daria related news, Cass Bird has uploaded two more pictures to her Instagram account and one of the photos (black and white, below) looks like the setup for a new photoshoot! Hopefully we get to see more work like this because it is quite beautiful!
And another candid below. Happy Thursday everyone!
Cass Bird posted an adorable photo and video of Daria and her, if you can believe it, having a slumber party. I don't think I've had a slumber party in over four years but I think I might have one again this winter break - Daria and Cass seemed to have had a great time.
If you follow Terry Richardson's blogregularily you'll know he always posts behind the scenes pictures of various models he photographs. With the release of the V#74 IMG Powerhouse editorial (under the Editorials tab) Terry had the chance to photograph a group of beautiful girls. These photos of Daria are spectacular ... the only bad thing is that it doesn't give us a preview of any new work!
I have some bad news but I've tried my best to mediate it with this post ... unfortunately (and fortunately) I will be away for a month on a trip and I don't think I will be able to have Internet connection most of the time. I'll try my best to do check-ins and update the site as much as I can but I am just warning my readers and letting you know that this break won't be as long as the last! I'll be back in less than a month and make sure to blog everything I have missed!
But for now, to satiate your Daria needs in this long drought, I have found a bucket-load of candids of Daria. And every single photo is beautiful! What makes these even greater is the fact that they are candids and show Daria in her natural element, with her friends and family - whether it be sailing, on a trip to Corsica, backstage at the Canadian Walk of Fame or at home in Toronto. I'm soooo excited to share these photos with you because I don't believe we've ever gotten to see Daria like this. I have to say, although it is really hard, my favourite photos have to be of Daria playing the guitar on a boat and cigarette in mouth. Can she really get any more cooler?
Now before you worry, all of these photos were taken from a reliable site and are already out in the public. They are all taken from photographer Gregory White's flickr page. Now, for a little backdrop to how I found these photos. Incidentally I did a Google search for Daria's boyfriend (I'm assuming we all know who her significant other is by now?) and came across a photo of his work on flickr. Not thinking much of it I clicked on the photographers portfolio and came across all of these photos. After a little looking I realized Gregory White is actually a friend of Daria.
Now enjoy these photos because they may be some of the most we'll see in the following months seeing as Daria is on another sailing trip this summer, much like the ones in the photos below!
Please credit to Gregory White for his great skills if you decide to share these and some credit to this site would be very very much appreciated! :)
I did a bit of random browsing last night and stumbled on hairstylist Harry Josh's website. If you remember Daria has attended his Spring Fling parties a few times and they seem to be good friends - good enough to warrant a spot on Josh's candid page! I've found a great unseen candid from back in 2007.
This candid was probably taken at one of Harry Josh's parties and Daria is pictured with Julia Stegner. 2007 was my favourite 'Daria year' and I love this candid. How is it possible that Julia and Daria still look good making the dumbest faces? Ah, the perks of being a model. Enjoy!
In case you haven't been seeing much of your favourite model (highly unlikely with her four campaigns this seasons!) here are a couple pictures to keep you readers at bay. And by couple I mean close to fifty images. It sure seems like Stefanel let their behind the scenes photographer run loose - I've never seen more onset photos with any campaign!
There's a gallery below of Daria frolicking in Paris and posing for the camers - and a cute one of her and photographer Mario Testino walking arm in arm! Seeing these photos makes me so homesick for Paris. It reminds me of last summer ... exactly a year from today I was in these exact same places. What are the odds?
Tomorrow I'll post the campaign and behind the scenes video, but I'm sure these will hold you off until then. And for easy scrolling just use your arrow keys ;)

Its only Tuesday but I'm ready for the week to end - I'm guessing most of you are thinking the same way? To ease this (not even) middle-of-the-week-slump here are two candids, old and new. The first one is from the New York, New York party at Le Baron earlier this year (more of which you can see under the Events and Candids page) and the second a recent one from an outing in Toronto. Daria was on hand before the opening of Pretty Freedom, a new store in Kensington Market, and the store owners managed to snap a picture with Daria. Considering their fine taste in models the two must have curated a great store ... enjoy!

A great reader let me know about an unseen candid of Daria (thanks Lizae) and here it is! I'm not sure where, or with whom, this was taken but judging from the bangs it must have been recent. Daria, as always, looks so at ease ... and her eyes are beautiful in this photo.
I also want to make this post a congratulations to The Daria Files and its readers for reaching 100 followers! It was so exciting to see that number reach, slowly but surely, up to 100 and now as of today five more have followed the site. Thank you so much!
I also want to use this post as a way of communicating to the readers. It would be great to hear from you about what you like (or don't like!) about the site and what you'd like to see more of. After all, it does get tiresome just reading only my ramblings!
An extensive site on Daria Werbowy the Polish born Ukranian-Canadian model who stormed the fashion world with her irresistible laid back look and those feline eyes. Candids, backstage images, editorials and covers can all be found here.
