By the end of FLARE’s exclusive sitting with the statuesque beauty, we discovered her penchant for alt-rock, lattes with soy milk, snowboarding and designers Stella McCartney and (the recently resigned) Phoebe Philo for Chloé. Daria was relaxed and happy after our fashion shoot (see it on page 142), describing herself in the pictures as a “classy grunge girl.” That said with her million-dollar (literally) smile, wearing faded grey jeans and a just-so distressed leather jacket.
The New Gig: Spokesmodel for Lancôme
In the press kit for Lancôme’s next blockbuster fragrance, Hypnôse, is a picture of Daria flanked with the words “Sensuality, thy name is woman.” “Hear me roar,” she says, laughing, when she sees it. Daria’s signed on to be more than just a face for Lancôme (which normally consists of pose, smile, go home, get paid). She’s a full-on spokesmodel who speaks for the brand, provides her opinions and works off-camera testing samples. “They’re absolutely 150 percent behind getting my input. I expressed my interest to them in the whole process [of creating products] and they’ve really gotten me involved.”
She’s quick and even giddy to say: “I can tell you everything you want to know about the fragrance. It’s really a unique, beautiful scent. It doesn’t smell like anything I’ve ever worn.” A mix of passion flower, vanilla and vetiver, it taps into her womanly side and her tomboy roots. “I think it’s incredible because it’s got this masculine feeling to it.”
Daria adores: Lancôme Hypnôse, 50 mL, $75. The bottle’s design is a retro revival of Lancôme’s 1950s fragrance success Magie.
Our opinion? The scent’s comfortable, sexy and edgy, just like Daria.
