It's a models-on-covers renaissance!
There was a time when models covered magazines exclusively, but actresses and musicians have basically usurped their thrones for a while now.
Lately, however, we've been seeing models on major covers more often, and Daria Werbowy on the front of Harper's Bazaar's February issue is a prime example!
Daria's well-known in the fashion world, but she's not exactly a household name, and for the US version (international versions do it all the time so it's not as noteworthy) of Bazaar to put her on their front page is a pretty big deal!
The 30-year-old wears Proenza Schouler on the cover, and models neutral, minimalistic pieces from Jil Sander, Celine, and Alexander Wang.
Daria also gets her own interview with the mag, talking about her self-imposed hiatus from the modeling world, her workout routine, and her love of Sinead O'Connor.
Read on for some HIGHlights, including her feelings on a certain celeb feud …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
On why she took a break from modeling:
"I took a risk a couple of years ago where I decided to do the minimal amount that I could get away with, because I physically and mentally couldn't handle it anymore. And it's like, you have everything you want, what you dreamt of is coming true, you can't buy anything else to make you happy, so then you think, Well, what else is there? And you have to leave."
On her workout regime: "Ashtanga yoga. I'm addicted. I stopped drinking, so this is the way life goes. I'm a pretty extreme person—if I say I'm going to sail across the Atlantic, I will."
On her work schedule: "I work for a chunk of time, I do everything back-to-back, and then I'm completely off."
On Sinead O'Connor and Miley Cyrus: "I love Sinéad O'Connor. She's part of the reason I went to Ireland, I think, subconsciously. I love the letter she wrote to Miley Cyrus. It was brilliant."
On her personal style: "I wear a lot of vintage. I go scrounging—Kensington Market in Toronto is amazing, the flea markets in Brooklyn and Williamsburg."
On pursuing acting in the future: "Hello, HBO, I really want to be on Game of Thrones. I could be a warrior; I'll do anything."
