Daria Werbowy Biography

Daria Werbowy was born on November 19, 1983, in an Eastern European hotbed of beautiful women, the great nation of Ukraine. Her parents moved to Mississauga, a suburb on the outskirts of Toronto, Canada, 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 shooting for Susan J., Daria thought she could be doing more with another agency. She was right: after switching over to Elmer Olsen Models, Daria really began to flourish. Within a few years, she had built one of the most enviable resumes in the modeling world. To date, her clients have included Yves Saint Laurent, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Givenchy, Ralph Lauren, and Christian Dior.

By 2001, Daria had appeared on the cover of French Canada's glossy fashion beacons, Elle Quebec and Clin d'Oeil. She went national with a shoot for Canada's Fashion magazine, and soon afterwards went global. Flare, W and Numro all used Daria's mug to sell copies, as did the granddaddy of fashion mags, Vogue (Daria did the covers for the American, Italian, Japanese, Greek, and Portuguese editions).
