Daria fronts first glimpse of de Sarno’s Gucci
She’s back! Just weeks after the rumors that she will feature in the upcoming Phoebe Philo campaign began to circulate, Daria Werbowy pipped us all to the post by starring in the new Gucci ads—the first inclination of what’s to come during Sabato de Sarno’s reign as incoming creative director. Styled by Alastair McKimm and lensed by David Sims, the Canadian-Ukrainian model is pictured poolside in Los Angeles in just black bikini bottoms with a double-G gold logo and a large sculptural earring; fitting as it’s seemingly to showcase ‘high jewelry.’ In a caption, the designer notes that he began his career the same season Werbowy did, fall 2003, when he was an assistant at Prada and she made her debut as a campaign muse. One of the most recognizable faces of the aughts, Werbowy, 39, retired from modeling in 2016. De Sarno’s Gucci debut will happen during Milan Fashion Week, with a show scheduled for September 22. Eyes on the prize!

Zoe Saldaña covers PORTER
Say hello to PORTER’s new cover star: barrier breaking actress Zoe Saldaña. The record-breaking thespian (she’s the actor with the most films to surpass $2 billion at the global box office) opens up about work ethic, drive, being unapologetically cool, and trying to act cool next to her Special Ops: Lioness co-star Nicole Kidman. The 45-year-old mom-of-three also talked about what she’s got cooking with her production agency, Cinestar, and praised her husband Marco Perego for being the type of partner who allows her to take on as much as she does. On the subject of representation, Saldaña, who is of Black, Latina, Caribbean, and American descent, tells Danielle Prescod: “When you start out and you are a person of color and you are female, you feel like you work twice as hard and it takes twice as long. We are finally reaping the benefits of all the hard labor. I honestly feel like we’re just getting started.” Read the full feature, with fashion styling by Charlotte Blazeby and imagery by Arran & Jules, here.
