I hope everyones week has been going well! I've had three exams in the past two days and have managed to do everything but pay attention to my books ... including finding these two new Maiyet images! I stumbled on two 'new' images from the Spring 2012 campaign, photographed by Cass Bird. If you'd like to see the full campaign it is on the Ad Campaigns page.
The photos were on the website of PSA Creative, the company in charge of art direction of the Maiyet campaigns. I think we have to give the agency as much credit as we do to Cass and Daria because they always pick such beautiful locations and ideas. An interesting tidbit on the shooting of this campaign - it was shot on the hundreth anniversary of Amelia Earhart's trans-atlantic flight. Cool to know so much thought goes into the making of these images ... it definitely shows!
Back in 2008, when The Daria Files was in its first year, she appeared on the cover of Elle Belgium. It was an adorable feature in which she toured and shopped in the city of Brussels Belgium. The photographer was Lalo Gonzalez, and thanks to Megan of Daria Werbowy Gallery, we get to see two unpublished shots from that day!
I think you readers know, more than anyone, that I love to see unpublished photos - especially when they are as beautiful as these. Circa 2007 - 2008 were my favourite "Daria years" and I think these photos do their best of explaining why. She had dark hair, pale skin ... and a certain allure about her that I don't think she's translated in the past year or two. But I'll leave it at that, and just hope enjoy these photos!
Have a great weekend! And happy Friday the 13th!
I was going to save these for another Flashback Friday but I couldn't wait that long. These outtakes of Daria by Cass Bird are too good not to share with you guys!
I think the love for Cass Bird and Daria's work is unanimous in this blog and among all of Daria's fans. That's why it's so great when we get to see new collaborations between the two. This time for Flashback Friday I have two unseen outtakes (at least to me!) from the Dossier editorial "I drew a map of Canada with your face sketched on it twice" (award for the longest editorial title goes to ...).
The pictures are quite pixelated, so it looks like there must be higher quality images out there somewhere. For the moment I can't find any but regardless ... Enjoy! And hopefully we get to see more of Cass and Daria's work in the future.
Another blast from the not so distant past with an outtake of Daria photographed by Bruce Weber. This is from the V by Visionaire #36 Fall 2005 editorial "V Love Daria". Its crazy to think that this picture is from six years ago ... and that Daria has been modeling for close to 13 years now!
If you take a look at the editorial page its crazy to see how many different publications shes been in, how many photographers, stylists and art directors shes worked with and how many different personas shes taken on just for the sake of a picture. I'd have to say I love Daria the most when shes playing herself, which is why this picture below is one of her best. Bruce Weber has a great way of capturing his subjects at their natural best.

I've posted a bunch of outtakes recently and I have another one today for you readers! This is an outtake from Daria's photoshoot with David Ferrua which I believe was for the February 2007 issue of Fashion magazine ("Daria Reigning Darling" under the Editorials page!). Its a really pretty picture but hasn't Daria changed over the years! This is so different from her tanned skin and golden hair she's sporting today. What do you like best?
I did a little google search on David Dunan's work after his editorial with Daria was released and I came across this beautiful unseen image! Its an outtake from the Extra editorial "Daria Werbowy, En La Cima" and such a beautiful photo! Its a shame that it wasn't published with the other shots but I can see why - it strays a bit far from the editorial theme. Nevertheless I hope Mr. Dunan releases more shots like this in the future! Enjoy!
Update* One more picture from the site!

A new photo is a rare sight these days. It looks like Daria's been laying low for the past month in terms of magazine apperances, and now that she's off sailing the world for the next two months I don't think we'll see much in the future! Thats why it was a treat to find this photo of Daria dressed like Inez van Lamsweerde in a photographer-muse switch.
This photo was taken by Inez and Vinoodh in 2010 and will be displayed at an exhibition in Sao Paulo, Brazil ... well right about now actually! If there are any Brazilian readers out there then you should go to the exhibition - it starts in half an hour - and then you can let us know if there are any other unseen Daria pictures!

I'm about two weeks too late but here are the scanned pages of Daria in the June 2010 issue of US Vogue. Oh well, better late than never? Its the thought that counts? OK enough idioms, on to the photos. Daria has two pages in the June issue, both were images accompanying articles in the beauty section. Both are outtakes from the Go West editorial in the January 2010 issue of Vogue US! I love the black and white photo in the sand ... it's so beautiful and abstract and I love how they allowed Daria's tattoo to be shown. If Vogue keeps producing beautiful images like this then I won't mind these little article photos in lieu of longer editorials.

Remember this Numero cover? It seems that after all this time, we finally have the outtakes of the shoot! In my opinion they definitely picked one of the worst shots for the cover! They had such a greater selection of pictures to choose from ... sometimes I don't understand the editors at all, but hey picking Daria for the cover is never a bad choice.
