Style Icons: Daisy Lowe


There isn't an ad campaign that she hasn't starred in, nor a runway she hasn't walked.
Daisy Lowe is the freshest, coolest style icon for the 21st century girl. She is a fashion and lingerie model, friend to the stars and girlfriend of Doctor Who himself, Matt Smith. Having modelled for more names than you could ever have thought possible, Daisy has just revealed that she is going to pose completely naked for a Playboy centrefold.



Daisy is no stranger to being nude in front of the cameras though. She has been a prolific Agent Provocateur model for the past three years and has done countless topless photoshoots. The admirable part of it all is that she is proud to not have a body like a typical model. Daisy actually owns hips, thighs and breasts and she is not ashamed to show them off. In fact, her womanly shape makes her the perfect role model. However, she recently admitted she'd struggled accept her body shape:
  "It's taken me seven years to get to the point where I can be comfortable with not being as thin as the rest of them".

 Daisy looks even better with her clothes on. Since getting signed to Select models at the tender age of 15, Daisy has modelled for pretty much everyone- Chanel, Vogue, Marc Jacobs, Mango, Henry Holland, Urban Outfitters, Vivienne Westwood, Nylon and Converse to name just a few memorable ones.

Of course, I couldn't write about Daisy without mentioning her famous background. Daisy is the daughter of rock star-turned-fashion designer Pearl Lowe- so she was always going to dress well. She had a few turbulent teenage years when she discovered her father wasn't Bronner Lowe as she'd previously thought, but husband of Gwen Stefani and frontman of rock band Bush, Gavin Rossdale- another set of seriously stylish parents. Daisy certainly has fashion in her genes.

Her red carpet look is even more stylish than her campaign work. Now known globally as a bona-fide 'it-girl', Daisy has the fashion world at her feet with her mix of playful yet sexy gothic-chic. She mixes up patterns and textures to make the outfit really her own and always has just a hint of flesh on show. Here are my favourite Daisy Lowe red carpet looks:
