A beau­ti­ful mind

The sur­pris­ing Daria Wer­bowy.

Elle (Canada) - - News -

What makes a woman beau­ti­ful? A com­bi­na­tion of strength and wis­dom—French­women em­body that. They’re very pro­gres­sive, open­minded and strong. I wish I had more of a French touch!

“My mother taught me to take care of my­self and my body by ex­er­cis­ing and get­ting mas­sages, and I do yoga ev­ery morn­ing. I love to be in na­ture. When I’m in Ice­land or Ire­land, or when I’m sail­ing—that’s what makes my life beau­ti­ful. When we moved to Canada, my fa­ther taught us how to sail. It’s a way to dis­con­nect from the fast-paced world we live in and re­con­nect with na­ture in a very raw way. [Wer­bowy and her fam­ily sailed across the At­lantic Ocean in 2008.] When you’re sail­ing, you’re quite vul­ner­a­ble and you re­ally learn about your­self—you act on in­stinct. You dis­cover your true self. I like the rush of it. I like the fear that things can go wrong.”

FAVOURITE ARTISTS? “Philip-Lorca diCor­cia and Hans Bellmer.” WHAT’S IN YOUR HAND­BAG? “I al­ways travel with Lancôme DreamTone, a cou­ple of books, tea and some min­er­als and crys­tals. I also carry a sketch­book, pen­cils and pa­per.” IDEAL DIN­NER- PARTY GUESTS? “Kurt Cobain, Jim Mor­ri­son and Ein­stein.” FAVOURITE FILMS? “The Three Colors tril­ogy: Blue, White and Red, di­rected by Krzysztof Kies­lowski.” MU­SIC OF THE MO­MENT? “Ali Farka Touré.”
