Mixing equal parts Isak Dinesen, Amelia Earhart and Katharine Hepburn, the campaign for Maiyet FW 2012 is exactly the sort of thing that my African safari dreams are made of.  Featuring the Daria Werbowy in Chyulu Hills, Kenya, photographer Cass Bird has gorgeously captured the free-spirited — yet refined — essence personified by the collection’s deft combination of luxe textures and tailored details.  And can we please talk about that wide-brimmed fedora, and how badly I need it in my life?  Such perfection…!

Sogni del Lago di Como {Salvatore Ferragamo Fall 2011}

My obsession with Salvatore Ferragamo is pronounced and documented, so it really is no wonder that I adore the images for the Fall 2011 campaign.  Daria Werbowy is simply stunning in these shots by Mikael Jansson.

Sidenote:  Are they at Lake Como?  Why didn’t they take me with them?

Daria Werbowy for Prada Parfum: “Thunder Perfect Mind”

05/08/2010 § 1 Comment

Thought I would resurrect a beautiful short film shot in 2005 by Jordan Scott (daughter of Ridley), starring model Daria Werbowy, to promote Prada’s first foray into perfume.  The text is from “The Thunder, Perfect Mind” a monologue found in the Nag Hammadi Library.  The excerpted text is a series of intriguing, paradoxical statements about a divine female figure.  Echoing the “woman as paradox” theme, Werbowy plays different female archetypes in the film – the wife, the mistress, the virgin, the mother, the daughter – frequently passing herself in her different incarnations.

Simply lovely.
