Back From Vacation

By thedariafiles · August 19, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

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There have also been tons of unpublished photos that keep popping up, mostly outtakes from Daria's recent editorials in Flare and Elle Canada.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.

A Look Back

By thedariafiles · May 24, 2011 · 0 Comments ·

Nine months of no updates (I don't know how some of you still came to visit but thank you so much!) and I've finally caught up on most of Daria's work. From my calculations there have been ...

17 Editorials
10 Covers
9 Interviews
8 Ad Campaigns
6 Public Appearances
3 Runway Shows (!!)
2 Calendars

I have to say, looking back at the photos from the past year I am mostly suprised by a couple of things. First, Daria walking in three shows in such a small time space! We all know she isn't a major runway presence anymore but nevertheless it was great to see her walking in Paris and New York! If anything it just shows her allegiance to designers and photographers. She walked for Tom Ford who she worked really closely with during 2003-2004 (who can forget her Fall 2004 campaign under Tom Ford's direction), the Hakaan show which is under the creative direction of Mert Alas of photographers Mert & Marcus who love photographing Daria and of course another appearance at Daria's favourite - Balmain.

Another surprise was seeing Daria at an actual event! Nonetheless it was for Lancome but it was  cute seeing her pose with Kate Winslet and Mario Testino on the red carpet, completely oblivious to the makeup and fancy dresses that her colleagues wore. I still don't understand how a spokesperson for a makeup brand can show up to an event without so much as a bit of mascara!

I've also noticed the rise of the beach editorial. It seems like more than anything Daria has become super comfortable with showing her body. So much so, that whenever I got the chance to see any new pictures I was surprised that they constantly lacked any, well, clothing! But the images I've seen are beautiful and the portray Daria as the person, rather than just another model.

But perhaps one of my favourite news was Daria as the face of Celines Spring Summer 2011 ad campaign! I've been a huge fan of creative director Phoebe Philo since her days at Chloe and I love her work at Celine. The campaign, photographed by Juergen Teller was just so cool! And to see Daria with a skateboard was even better - coming from a fellow boarder I wish I looked that cool travelling around campus.

Blablabla, enough about my rambles. I'll update the site with the newest images ASAP but for now I'll just post on new things to keep the site less redundant. Also congratulations to anyone thats made it this far in this post, but I just felt the need to comment a bit on what has happened in Daria's career!
