Though Werbowy, 28, is one of the most sought-after models in the world — she stars in campaigns for Céline, Balmain and Salvatore Ferragamo, and is a face of Lancôme — she seems to be most comfortable in next to nothing. At the shoot, she greets the team in her typical tomboy getup: jean shorts covered in patches she sewed on herself, an old Nirvana T-shirt, lots of silver rings and an enviable tan. Werbowy loves the sea as much as the sun — a few years ago she took a break from modeling and sailed across the Atlantic from New York for 24 days with her father, brother and sister. A few days after our shoot, she would be embarking on a two-month sailing expedition from Guatemala to Belize, island hopping along the coast, then traveling through Central America to Costa Rica. There would be no staff, no captain, no chef, just a few friends and family members. Werbowy would do it all: sail, steer, clean and cook. “Daria can morph into so many different things,” Bird says. “She’s tough as nails.”
