Daria Werbowy (born Nov 19, 1983 in Ukraine) and she lived in Poland 3 years. She is a Polish-Canadian Supermodel. Daria moved to Mississauga, Ontario when she was 3. At age 14, Daria was a gigantic 5'11", slim with narrow hips and sporting braces. She had never seriously considered modeling, but found herself launched into the business after meeting a schoolmate's mother who headed Toronto's Susan J. Model & Talent Management. After a year working with Susan J. however, Daria thought she could be doing more with another agency. After switching over to Elite Models, Daria began landing several prominent bookings in Canada, but still wasn't meeting with much international success. When Elite Canada's head scout, Elmer Olsen, started his own agency however, Daria followed and her career really began to flourish. Within a few years, and under the guidance of International Management Group (IMG) internationally, she had built one of the most enviable resumes in the modeling world. To date, her clients have included Prada, Yves Saint Laurent, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Givenchy, Belstaff, Lanc�me, Ralph Lauren, Christian Dior and Chanel. In her first season she captured two of the modelling world's most coveted prizes: the cover of Vogue Italia, twice; and Prada's Fall/Winter ad campaign. Daria is also regarded as one of the top runway models ever, and appeared in more shows in 2003 than any model had ever walked in a single season. Gemma Ward, Lily Cole are just some of the models that are considered in the same league as Daria. They all have the same babydoll like look that designers are continuously looking for these days. She has a navel peircing. (Source: Wikipedia) Share on Facebook
