Daria Werbowy - Biography & Career
Daria Werbowy (born November 19, 1983) is a Ukrainian-Canadian supermodel.
Werbowy was born in Krakow, Poland, and moved to Mississauga, Ontario, when she was three. At age fourteen, Werbowy 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 of working with Susan J., however, Werbowy thought she could be doing more with another agency and left. 
After switching over to Elite Models, Werbowy 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, Werbowy followed and her career really began to flourish. Within a few years, and under the guidance of International Management Group (IMG) internationally, she built one of the most enviable resumes in the modeling world.
Werbowy holds the current record of opening the most shows in her opening season. To date, her clients have included Prada, Yves Saint-Laurent, Versace, Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Givenchy, Belstaff, Lancome, 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. Werbowy 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. While promoting the cosmetics brand Lancome as the face of its "Hypnose" perfume, Werbowy took a well-earned break from the fashion runways. She returned in early 2006.
