Well, life hasn't been easy for Miranda Kerr of late. The 30-year-old Australian actress has recently split from husband Orlando Bloom and has now been replaced by Daria Werbowy as the face of the Spanish brand Mango.
The 29-year-old Ukrainian-Canadian model is one of the most sought-after models at the moment, so we're not at all surprised the high-end fashion brand chose her for its spring/summer 2014 campaign.
"As part of our policy of collaborating with celebrities from the world of fashion, Mango has decided to collaborate with one of the top fashion models of the moment," Ninona Vila, PR manager for MNG by Mango, stated.
"In choosing a model of the stature of Daria Werbowy, our aim is not only to highlight our brand values but also the importance of the quality and design of the garments in the new collection."
While Werbowy has an impressive modelling resume, she has some big shoes to fill. Mango is famous for grabbing the world's top models for its campaigns, and the following ladies are just the tip of the iceberg.
Well, Werbowy has to replace somebody… Kerr has been the face of Mango for the past several seasons, bringing her adorable dimples and wavy long locks to the colourful campaigns. She was doing a pretty splendid job, so we were a little surprised to hear that she's been replaced.
One of the most famous faces to grace Mango in the last decade, Kate Moss can't really be beat. Moss took over the modelling duties for the brand in 2011 (and was replaced by Kerr) and always brought her own usual charm to every shoot. There's something effortless about Moss' photos, no doubt due to her extensive experience. If Werbowy wants to make her mark on the brand, Moss is her main competitor.
Karolina Kurkova was probably the most sex-oozing model for Mango, landing the job in the early 2000s. With her sultry glances, blond locks and natural pout, she definitely brought some heat to her campaigns. The wonderful thing about Kurkova is that she was always comfortable in front of the camera, and it showed.
Other stars to have also graced the Mango campaigns include Naomi Campbell, Penelope Cruz, Claudia Schiffer and Christy Turlington. As you can see, plenty of inspiration and intimidation! We wonder if Werbowy will try to entice the younger generation like Kerr, bring effortless cool like Moss or sex it up like Kurkova. Maybe she'll do something completely different and catch us all off guard… Who knows?
