Quote of the Day: Daisy Lowe on Karl Lagerfeld, Curves

Daisy Lowe on ASOS

“My dream is to see a lot more female shapes in ad campaigns when I look through magazines…my friend was working with Crystal Renn and said she thinks she's only got a 38-inch hip. Karl Lagerfeld said he was going to embrace her womanly shape and then he just put her face on the ad campaign. Girls are starting to have tits in pictures, but I think it still needs to be about the curve… Real women have hips and an arse, yet loads of models in shows seem to have neither.”

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Health & Beauty, Models, News,

Daisy Lowe doesn’t care if her clothes offend anyone.

The 21-year-old model - daughter of Pearl Lowe and rocker Gavin Rossdale - likes to experiment with her look and enjoys wearing outfits which aren’t always to everyone’s taste. Daisy - who would happily wear a purple bra to dinner and mix vintage Victorian camisoles with high street pieces - said, “I thought the whole point was to have fun with clothes? Sorry if that offends anyone.”

As well as experimenting with her own look, Daisy and her friends also indulge in a bit of dressing up. She told Britain’s magazine, “Most of my friendships stem from high school. My friends and I like to play fairy games and dress up.”

The brunette beauty has previously posed nude on two occasions and says she’s has no regrets about it. She said, “The female form is a beautiful thing. People are like, ‘Oh, you get naked all the time.’ I got naked twice - just twice - and yes, maybe that’s twice too many, but I think that women’s bodies are great. I don’t want to do pornos! It’s a tasteful thing.”


Celebrities, Models Crazy for Cats

Following on from winter’s leopard print trend, the cat patterns give the look a fresh feel and look great under blazers, teamed with leggings and denim. One fashion insider said, “Big cat T-shirts are a continuation of winter’s leopard print trend. They’re the micro-trend of the moment and make you look really confident. They also look great with all the big summer looks, like denim shorts and leggings.”

Another look set to take off is tribal prints, with Nicola Roberts, Naomi Campbell and all wearing them recently. In order to pull-off the look, wearers must be quite bold with their choices and not worry about being perfectly matching.

The British model has teamed by with the luxury crystal company for a capsule line which will be available from January.

She told W: “It’s four pieces—a necklace, bracelet, ring and set of earrings. They’re kind of magical in a dark, romantic way. I’ve incorporated black and white, star and moon crystals, and multiple strands of chains. I wanted it to be about the earth, moon, and planetary movements, all that kind of weird stuff.”

The 20-year-old star, who has modeled for Chanel, Vivienne Westwood and , also refused to rule out creating a clothing collection, but admitted she has no immediate plans to do so: “I’m so in love with fashion and playing with clothes, so I would never say no to designing fashion.”

She said, “You have to take every opportunity you can. I have loads of designs on paper and there is a really good jewelery course at London’s Central Saint Martins.

Daisy Lowe’s plans to gain weight

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Health & Beauty, Models,

Daisy LoweDaisy Lowe is “excited” about getting fat.  The 20-year-old British model has no plans to continue modelling when she gets older because doesn’t want to have to look after her body as carefully as she currently does. She said: “My biggest ambition is to do really well, but keep being a nice person and not let it affect me. Then I can buy a house and bow out. I’m going to get old and wrinkly, and when I’m older I’m going to put on loads of weight, and I’m excited about it. I think it’s just really important to remember that you aren’t your face.”

The slender star also admitted the fashion industry can be “depressing” because of the image of extreme thinness it is seen to promote. She added to Britain’s Telegraph newspaper: “I went to a casting recently, and there was a gaggle of about five 6ft Russian girls who all weigh about 6st, and I’m just not that breed of a woman. “Fashion is supposed to be fun and beautiful. But so much of the time it depresses so many people, because they think, ‘We need to lose weight.’ The female form is such a beautiful thing. It should be celebrated and not put down, that’s the only reason I agreed to do the shows. I said, ‘I’ll give it a go to see if they’ll hire some t**s and a**. If they will, then great!’ ”
