Daria Werbowy Page 1
If you haven’t noticed from our adoration of Andrej Pejic and our fangirling over Ford Models‘ decision to sign a woman to their men’s division, androgyny is kind of our jam. Add to that anything related to Daria Werbowy, and suffice it to say we’re crushing hard.
Baby, it’s cold outside, but Versace‘s spring ads are hot.
Most of the time models’ tattoos get covered up or Photoshopped into oblivion before their photos make their way into magazines, but sometimes editors let the ink take center stage. We’ve put together a gallery of some of the best shots of models like Freja Beha, Catherine McNeil, and Erin Wasson that show off their badass body art.
The September issue is a big deal for any fashion mag, but French Vogue’s marks a new look for the Emmanuele Alt-helmed glossy. To celebrate, the editor wrangled a trifecta of present-day supers — Kate Moss, Lara Stone, and Daria Werbowy — to pose for the cover.
In the past year, the world’s 10 top-earning models made a combined $112 million. $45 million of that was made by Gisele Bündchen alone.
For the past 10 years, Vogue‘s shape issue has aimed to highlight different body types. As such, it’s unfortunate that the title of a behind-the-scenes video of a conventional models-only shoot for the issue is “Vogue Diaries: ‘Perfect’ Shapes”. Sigh.
We love a good behind-the-scenes video, but so often they’re super short, super edited, and devoid of any and all conversation because of some post-production soundtrack meant to make the footage look more artsy. Enter this 24 minute long look at Karl Lagerfeld‘s shoot for the 2010 Pirelli calendar, in which the models actually talk (much to Daria Werbowy‘s detriment), wander around naked, and Lagerfeld expounds on mythology, retouching, and why he included Julianne Moore.
The December issue of Vogue Paris was guest edited by Tom Ford and features an editorial shot by Terry Richardson, so it makes sense that the 2011 Calendar insert included in the glossy would consist of twelve images of model Daria Werbowy in varying degrees of undress.
It’s a well known fact that models are their own breed of humans, with especially elongated limbs, luminescent skin, and arresting features which may vary from doll-like to alien-esque to sex-kittenish and back again. But what’s even more fascinating about these strange, vaunted creatures is that while the originality of their looks is what gets them paid, they have an eery tendency to look, well, strikingly like each other. And so, here are seven sets of long-lost model twins who have us seriously questioning our eyesight when it comes to their remarkable resemblance.
Love Daria. But after taking a second glance at the model’s latest steamy spread for Interview Magazine, we can totally see why it’s raising a few eyebrows — not that that’s a rarity in the fashion industry. But the problem, as our friends over at Refinery 29 astutely observed, isn’t merely the Mikael Jansson-lensed editorial’s sexualized take. Rather, as they write: ”From the differences in their dress (Daria’s in ethereal, angel-like gowns, the others are in knits and leathers) to their body language, the whole spread has a rather racist vibe.”
How can you sport Balmain’s aesthetic without breaking the bank? You could pop a shoulder pad in and get a pair of torn jeans…but it simply wouldn’t look the same. Apparently, however, shoppers — thousands of them — have found a way to mimic the military chicness. And we think it looks pretty damn good.
The entire Styleite staff has been anxiously awaiting magazine stands to start stocking Industrie Magazine, which promises to be “the first and only media title dedicated to going behind the scenes to chronicle the personalities, stories and defining moments in the world of fashion.” Most of the magazine’s details are still being held behind an elegant curtain, but today, Business Of Fashion ran an exclusive interview with Industrie’s two editors In Chief, Erik Torstensson and Jens Grede. (P.S. One of the features involves a naked photo of Daria Werbowy, so consider yourself warned: NSFW.)
Ever since a supposed image of new-magazine-on-the-block Industrie’s cover featuring model Daria Webowy showed up on a few style sites, the online fashion community has been intrigued. But it looks like Werbowy needs to watch her back — Industrie went in a decidedly different direction.
Sartorially speaking, it’s no huge secret that military-inspired looks have become an entrenched part of spring’s wardrobe, but talk about beating a dead horse. Between G.I. Gisele and Private Werbowy covering international issues of Vogue and Harper’s, along with a slew of other salut-a-torials, we felt it our duty to call the glossies on their surplus of uniformity.
Kimora Lee Simmons debuted her fifth fragrance earlier this month — and a seriously airbrushed-looking ad along with it. Though Simmons is certainly beautiful, the artwork for the Dare Me ad campaign featured a decidedly more slender and, well, willowy version of the designer and left most of the blogosphere scratching their heads. But now, thanks to a savvy Jezebel tipster, the mystery — or at least part of it — appears to be solved.
By the way, in case you missed it — today is Earth Day. And eco-chic product placement aside, if there was ever an industry that could teach us a thing or two about reusing and recycling it would be fashion. So with that in mind, feast your eyes on the best recycling we’ve seen in a while: “La DécaDanse.” Taken for May issue of French Vogue, the super-steamy editorial is actually an up-cycled update of a classic series of shots by Francis Giacobetti featuring singer Serge Gainsbourg and model cum icon Jane Birkin.
A few years ago, red-blooded patriotism was the sort of thing reserved for the backwoods. You know — the breed of Croc-lovers, distinguishable by their fur-flung caps, and firm belief in the sartorial supremacy of the elastic waistband. Well, fast-forward and all that was once frowned upon is now in Vogue. Literally.
We adore when modern day actresses and models play dress-up and channel style icons of yesteryears. Earlier this week, we were to treated to Daria Werbowy’s spread in V Magazine, inspired by the late actress and style maven Maria Felix. It seems only fitting for actress Carey Mulligan to channel mod model Twiggy for a spread in Wonderland.
Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Gorgeous. Daria Werbowy was shot by Mario Testino for an amazing 8-page spread in April’s V Magazine. She played the part of Mexican actress Maria Felix.
