Just like in the US — witness Kimberley Stewart, Nicole Richie et al — the best shortcut to fame in Britain is to have a famous dad. Hello, Peaches Geldof! But London model of the moment Daisy Lowe, 19, trumps them all with her notorious family history and a family tree made of celebrity relatives. Her mum is former Britpop singer and cocaine addict Pearl Lowe, who unveiled to Daisy in 2004 that godfather Gavin Rossdale was actually, er, her dad. Counting Gwen Stefani, then, as a stepmum, Daisy’s stepdad is Supergrass drummer Danny Goffey and she recently broke off a relationship with uber-producer Mark Ronson. (Shame, we fancied the inevitable gossip when sisters-in-law Daisy and Lindsay Lohan caught up at Christmas.)
Still, there’s something about the pictures below for lingerie firm Agent Provocateur (just voted one of the CoolBrands for 2009) that makes it very, very easy to forget all about Daisy’s chequered family history and just focus on her extraordinary talents.
We’re sure Mark Ronson is feeling just the same as we are. — Becky Howard
