Los Angeles, Jan 9: Model Daria Werbowy took a break from modelling when she was at the peak of her career as she could not handle it "physically and mentally". Now she is back.
The 30-year-old, who has replaced Miranda Kerr as the new face of fashion brand Mango, started out in the industry when she was 14, reports contactmusic.com.
"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," Harper's Bazaar magazine quoted Werbowy as saying.
The model now makes sure to take proper breaks.
"I work for a chunk of time, I do everything back-to-back, and then I'm completely off," she said.
