I died and went to Mexican heaven

Daria Werbowy as María Félix

I would not usually try to entertain any of my Mexican fashion obsessions in a blog about Canadian fashion but my luck really struck out today when I found this shoot of Canadian supermodel Daria Werbowy playing one of Mexico's biggest icons María Félix. Shot by Mario Testino for V Magazine the images are inspired by mythic Mexican actress and her collection of serpent and crocodile diamond necklaces from Cartier. Also known as La Doña, Maria Felix was also considered one of the best dressed women in the world during her time. On a recent trip to Mexico I bough a collector's edition series of books about her life at an antique market and spent some fascinating hours with her.

  1. Whoa, the shoot is magnificent. Daria is so damn gorgeous and she almost looks Mexican xD. The jewellery is fantastic though, loads of character.
