I can't believe this. Literally can't believe it. It just feels like she was putting her feelings out there every day - on her blog, in her interviews. And none of us could see the signs, could do anything about it. It's the tragedy of our era that we can watch a person's deterioration through as impersonal mediums as the net, and are powerless to help.

I think the best any of us can do now is just to remember her for the beautiful person she was - and I'm obviously not just referring to her looks. She was a rare force in the modeling industry - a highly intelligent, sensitive and poetic soul. It is a sad fact that those most gifted and talented in this world are often those most hurt by it. I hope that the fashion industry get together and do something to honour her. She deserves to be remembered.

My thoughts go out to her loved ones. I hope she has reached a kinder world.

So awful. She was the only model I ever really rooted for and respected as a human being and not just a professional pretty face. I met her once briefly in passing and now am so thankful I did. I just don't know, I've been trying to hold back tears all day.

I cannot believe her miserable news.
Even cannot guess why she did.. I hope this is just a nightmare.
I'm so so sad right now.

Maybe this can be a reminder to rise more awareness at TFS also. I think even despite our best efforts, a lot of posters unintentionally overlook the fact models are normal people. Both new faces and topmodels are being judged by their pictures as if they're on america's next topmodel. A lot of positive remarks too, but still such judgement. It's even 'cute' when a model is talking on her phone somewhere backstage, sorting her business? It has gotten quite crazy.... Including the whole internet hype around young, new models.... I don't know... Supporting Cast = fashion's next topmodel.

Daul wrote about the fixation on her appearance in daily life.

Doubtful. There are a lot more cruel things in the world that have had little to no impact on society

You will be dearly missed Daul. I hope you've found the happiness you always wanted.

Quote:

you are complicated

i am complicated by you

but actually i am quite simple

i am dumb

i am dumb and happy.



i am a dumb piece of meat

and i rott everyday

my flesh gives a rotting smell

and people say its the smell of life

and they come to me

and watch me rott

and gets happy and upset and annoyed and disgusted and maybe sometimes feels compasion

but they dont realise they are rotting too.



a dumb piece of meat is pollution

a dumb piece of meat eats and consumes and vomits

a dumb piece of meat should burry itself in the ground

or burn itself



but a dumb piece of meat has something called mother and father and family

and they will be scarrred for life if the dumb piece of meat burns itself


so the dumb piece of meat should be dumber to be happy and rott quicker.
this is all the way from july 2008, it seems as though she's been unhappy for quite some time and i can only hope that she's at peace and finally found comfort. it sounds terrible, but i can't say i am surprised, it's tragic however and i feel as though she was one of the few models people could REALLY relate to in a way. she will be missed. RIP Daul.

I'm absolutely shocked! I literally gasped while reading this in class. I'm so sad and incredibly at a loss of words. She seemed like such a beautiful girl internally and externally. You'd assume she had it all with such a strong modeling career but it seems like she was suffering from so many negative things. RIP Daul, you'll forever be missed.

[Re-posting my reply from before with source:]

I'm really saddened by this news because she was one of my favorite faces in fashion. She was edgy and she had a great sense of style. Last night, it occurred to me that I have photographed her on the runway before. Here she is in a nice moment from the Anna Sui SS09 show that I wanted to share.
