FASHION Magazine October 2013 cover: Daria Werbowy
In an industry where models come and go as quickly as trends, Daria Werbowy has managed to keep busy and relevant. Gracing FASHION’s cover for the ninth time, the Polish-born, Toronto-bred beauty brings her signature sizzle to the camera, sporting a Christopher Kane dress with the kind of freshness and energy that you typically see in a new name. At 29, she says she may feel as young as when she was first discovered but her whole outlook on life has changed considerably. Below, features editor Elio Iannacci offers a sneak peek at her cover story.
On her relationship with fashion and decor:
“Ever since I was in high school, I was interested in design. I kept changing my room around all the time. I think design has an important role in our surroundings, our personalities and our way of life.”
On getting older and becoming a veteran in the industry:
“I’m not afraid of aging. If you can preserve yourself and keep your brain in a good place, you can keep on going.”
On her newfound love of Peru:
“It is the most bio-diverse place on the planet right now. There’s a lot of interesting things happening there in terms of preserving native Amazon medicine culture—the things that I’m looking to research right now.”
On her affinity for 92-year-old Mayor of Mississauga, Hazel McCallion:
“She’s an amazing example of a woman who just keeps on going. I’d love to make a documentary about her. She’s my hero!”
On turning 30 in November:
“I’m more interested in the aspect of using my body as a vessel of creativity than just for looks. I’m not as attached to this body or this image as much as I was when I was younger—I think that’s what being 30 is about.”
