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

Rachel Bilson‘s only credential for “designing” clothes is that she wears them, but for some reason this chick got her own line. We’ve peeped the goods online and they look like every other cheap celebrity-branded clothing line – boring, poorly made and fugly. She launched the line, dubbed Edie Rose, this weekend at a Macy’s in Florida, and amazingly the worst piece wasn’t one of her designs, it was the teeny-tiny hat she decided to wear. It’s always disturbing when celebs smugly show off a fashion flub that they’re so clearly proud of – Rachel thinks she looks trendy and adorable, when really she looks like a very pretty old man.

There’s something about Victoria Beckham‘s boots that makes us sick to our stomach. Where are the f*cking heels!? These Antonio Berardi monstrosities, which she wore to her NYC fragrance launch on Friday, cost £3,300 (about $6000), go all the way up to her upper thing, and would have a five and a half inch heel if one existed. We hope Posh is happy suffering for fashion, because at this rate she’s not going to be able to walk by the time she’s 40. [Photo: Splash News Online]
Little people have always been an integral part of the celebrity scene, but recently their roles both on-screen and in the gossip pages have grown (no pun intended), and some are giving the usual Hollywood suspects a run for their money – and their women. Whether it’s Wee Man stealing Verne Troyer‘s 22-year old model girlfriend, mini-Britney Spears Terra Jole looking a billion times hotter (and more coherent) than the star she impersonates, or Peter Dinklage‘s SAG-nominated role in the indie hit The Station Agent, little people are emerging as Hollywood’s big players.
Scandalist has picked 12 of the hottest little people currently causing our hearts to flutter – bring yourself up to date by checking out our gallery. Click on the photos below to jump in.

Naomi Watts has a history of lashing out at paparazzi, and it doesn’t look like pregnancy’s made her any less irritable. X17‘s video shows the King Kong star getting so annoyed on Tuesday that she grabbed a camera and screamed “What the f*ck do you think you are doing?” The pap whines and another asks if she’s pulling a Kanye, but it’s hard to plea for sympathy when you’re hounding a lady full of baby.
Despite the drama, Watts was out and about the next day, walking her son Alexander (in a stroller) and enjoying a nice day. Maybe it was the dudes zooming around her in tight corners that set her off. Keep that respectful distance, guys! Baby on board!
At first look, Britain’s hyper-sexed princess Katie Price has the resume of an ultra successful entrepreneur:
- She ran in the 2001 British General Election, promising free breast implants and no more parking tickets.
Despite Katie’s success in peddling countless wares (clothing, bedding, perfume, hair appliances, etc.), she feels compelled to show up at as many red carpet events and launch parties as possible — and always half-naked. Could this be the secret to her success? We’ve compiled some of her most shameless appearances over the last couple years. Take a look.

Yesterday, Rock of Love 2 resident and upcoming Charm School contestant Angelique (a.k.a. Frenchy) stopped by our office. On a press jaunt that included telling Howard Stern that she hadn’t had sex in eight months, the French-bred, Vegas-based stripper decided to remedy that when she came to our offices.
You see, our offices, in addition to being located at the crossroads of the world, contain some eye candy, in the form of resident ladies man Shawn Mahoney. Upon laying eyes on Mahoney, Angelique — in quick succession — asked for his number, told him she wanted to “f*ck” him, and promptly started sending him sexy texts. After sending 13 text messages in two hours, the buxom blonde switched to email. We’ve included the texts after the jump as well as hot photos of Angelique and a voicemail she left.
Submitted for your pleasure, please read the unedited raciness of a woman who wants to get laid.
