The British belle dissects her buzz-worthy style and rebel-rock pedigree. By Erin Donnelly
"My clothes live in New York, so that's where my heart is," jokes reigning British It Girl Daisy Lowe, unwittingly giving green-eyed fash-philes the coordinates to her much-coveted closet. The 19-year-old model and rock progeny—Lowe was raised by mother Pearl Lowe (an original Brit It Girl in her own right) and step-father Danny Goffey of Supergrass, with Gavin Rossdale filling in as biological dad—has established herself as a crush-worthy fashion ingénue thanks to her sweet but smoldering beauty and an easy-chic wardrobe that's heavy on cheeky vintage frocks and an I'm-with-the-band kind of confidence. Provocative poses for Agent Provocateur and star lensmen like Steven Klein and Terry Richardson have raised Lowe's modeling profile, and—barring any conflicts with a potential television show in the pipeline—she expects to return to the runways at Bryant Park in September.
This summer, Lowe will be spending time with her family, though, and in her case, that means trailing Goffey and his Supergrass bandmates as they tour with the Foo Fighters. Here, Lowe opens up about what she'll wear on the road this summer and the finer points of NYC versus London style…
Tell us the five fashion essentials you can't live without…
1. "I really, really love this ribbon headband from Geminola in New York. You tie it around your hair and it has tiny little fake flowers on it."
2. "My boyfriend bought me a Solange Azagury-Partridge Fringe ring, and it's beautiful. It's a square of gold chainmail that hangs off the sides."
3. "A little Chanel clutch."
