I must admit. I am amongst the many journalists that haven't always been so favourable about Peaches Geldof's fashion choices in the past but since giving birth, her outfits seem to have changed and in a good way.
The Alberta Ferretti demi-couture gown that she wore last night to attend the London premiere of 'The Dark Knight Rises' is a case in point. The dress felt a lot more polished and grown up compared to the Peaches of old and really worked on her.
Dear Chloe Sevigny. I noticed you made some catty remarks about me in the press. You and I both know the real reasons behind this, don’t we? I now know you’re still not over it, which makes me feel sad for you. Don’t use public snide comments as a platform for your anger over MM.
She said on Twitter in response to Sevigny saying that she's "just around"
I guess I am stylish, but I would rather have people come up and say “I really liked your performance in this or that” than “I really like the way you dress.” That irks me. Anyway, the term It girl gets used too loosely. Today the term is used to describe, say, Peaches Geldof—a girl who doesn’t do anything but is just sort of around. The original It girl was the 1920s movie star Clara Bow; then, in the 1960s, with Edie Sedgwick and Warhol, It girls turned into socialites, ladies of leisure—people who had “it” just for being “fabulous.”
The newest apparel collection designed by Bon Jovi’s Richie Sambora is the latest fashion talk around town attracting everyone from Peaches Geldof to Alexa Chung, with perhaps it's name being part of the attraction; White Trash Beautiful.
Vogue's Julia Neel described the collection as “The clothes are exactly what you would expect the lead guitarist of one of the world’s most famous rock ‘n’ roll bands to want women to wear: seductively revealing, often spray-on and always dramatic.” Sambora along with Nikki Lund who has helped co-design the collection have both said that their ideal customer would be Jennifer Aniston. Personally we think that Aniston might find it a little tacky but Megan Fox will marvel at the collection which encapsulates her rock n roll style.
The duo's confidence had expanded ten fold since the reception about the label has all been positive and so their next project is delving into menswear. Jon Bon Jovi himself has already worn some of the custom jackets from the collection on stage this week in his concerts for his latest tour.
Georgia May Jagger finally has competition and it comes in the form of Annie Lennox's daughter Tali Lennox who has just been signed up with model agency Select. At just seventeen years of age and 5ft 9 inches tall, unlike her mother and older sister Lola both in the music industry, the teen wants to pursue a career in fashion design. Having just featured in a sexy shoot for Australian magazine Kurv, the youngster is certainly giving the likes of Amber Le Bon a run for her money in the shoot sporting a sheer shirt and skin-tight leggings showing off her enviable legs and model stance.
Tali hit the London scene last year when she was photographed with Peaches Geldof, Daisy Lowe and Alice Dellal around town and most notably at London Fashion Week. Living quite the glamourous lifestyle at such a young age, Annie Lennox talks quite differently of her teen years compared to both of her daughter's saying:
"Their upbringing has been totally different to mine. I was brought up in a tenement house in a working district. We didn't even have a bathroom! We had a gaslight in the hallway and a black-and-white TV. My kids could be from a different planet, not just in terms of the working-class thing, but also because of the age we are living in, with mobile phone and the internet."
Definitely one to watch, Tali Lennox is rumoured to be the newest "It girl" around London.
Whilst there were rumours flying recently that Georgia May Jagger (daughter of Rolling Stone Mick Jagger) was set to replace Peaches Geldof(daughter of musician Bob Geldof - see a pattern emerging?) it has been confirmed that the Vogue cover girl won't become the next Ultimo model. The reports came about after Geldof's contract with the lingerie company was terminated following an alleged drugs scandal, and it was suggested that Jagger would take the place as the latest Miss Ultimo model.
However Jagger's agent, Tori Edwards of Tess Management dismissed the idea, telling Vogue "As model of the year, Georgia's name will inevitably be linked with new campaigns, but there is no truth in the speculation that she will be working for Ultimo". She continued, "Georgia has had an incredibly busy six months: shooting her first Vogue cover, modelling for Versace and Hudson, receiving the British Fashion Award and becoming the face of Rimmel. She has a few high profile campaigns in the pipeline, but Ultimo isn't one of them". So, which other musician's offspring should we put our money on next? Could it be Daisy Lowe, Coco Sumner or Amber Le Bon - or even the new girl on the scene, Tali Lennox? Watch this space, ladies.
Miss Ultimo has dropped 21-year-old Peaches Geldof from the brand's ad campaign, which targets 16- to 25-year-olds, after rumours of heroin use and topless photos of Geldof surfaced on the internet. Ben Mills, 23, claims the two had sex after doing heroin in L.A., though Geldof's lawyers dispute portions of Mills' claims.
Now, gossip is that Georgia May Jagger might be the brand's replacement model. Currently, Ultimo is removing Geldof's images from the company's department-store displays and website. According to company reps: “Miss Ultimo is a brand geared towards a young female audience and as a company we have a social responsibility to ensure we are promoting only positive role models that young women can aspire to.”
