Fab Blab: Daisy Lowe

This weekend the Observer Magazine caught up with Fab favourite Daisy Lowe. The model, who is rumoured to have broken up with Mark Ronson this weekend, is currently back in London for fashion week. She has also recently been revealed as one of the faces of Agent Provocateur.

Daisy is often out spoken about her role in the fashion industry. She complains that they only want super skinny girls and in this interview she was quite explicit about her feelings.

"The thing is I'm not teeny-weeny stick sample size so I don't want to go along to the cattle castings and not fit into any of the clothes. Show size is very small and I eat doughnuts and Red Velvet (cupcakes). I love curvaciousness. Curvy girls are the sexiest girls. If clothes were built for curvier women, which is most of the population, one: people would look better; two: designers would sell more clothes, and three: they wouldn't have to use tiny anorexic models."

She also talks about what she was like before she became a model. "I loved chemistry and psychology. I won a chemistry quiz and got given a forensic scientist's uniform. I was 15. So at the same age as doing all this science stuff, I did the Agent Provocateur perfume campaign and I did get a Saturday job, in AP. I worked in the store room upstairs, but I still got the pink uniform."

Reading the interview left me wishing Daisy Lowe was my best friend! It's so refreshing to hear of somebody so level-headed in the modeling industry, particularly a model who is under so much pressure to conform. Daisy hinted that she'd soon move back from New York to London because she's "bored of planes".

I've just read the interview in the Guardian, she does sound very young. :) I have to say the parts where she mentions her ex-bf Will Forgothislastname are pretty sad - but again, it's somehow nice to see she's not hiding the fact their breakup is obviously a defining part of her personality.

daisy is completely right, designers would sell their clothes alot more and faster, im bored of seeing only sticks walk the run way, at least balance it out and chuck in some real sized women. look at angelina jolie she is supposed to be the most beautiful woman in the world and she isn't exactly small....

Funnily enough, just commented about this article in the Sugar Bits post. I thought it was an interesting article, she did come across as being quite young despite the fact that she talks about how mature she sees herself, but at the same time she seems quite grounded. Some of the side comments (from the interviewer) about Gavin Rossdale were interesting too.

Wow if she's curvy, then I don't know what to say about people I see in the street every day.. I just thought she was, well, normal?! She does sound pretty down to earth though!
