Career

Lowe began modelling at the age of 2, and did some photoshoots when she was 12 and 14 years old.[2] At 15 she was approached by a talent scout in Camden Town and, as a result, she signed with Select, a London modelling agency.[2]

In February 2006, Lowe was featured in Italian Vogue, shot by New York photographer Steven Klein, who also shot her in March 2007 for a W magazine pictorial called "Xurbia". In September 2006, Lowe modelled for the Urban Outfitters catalogue, appeared in French Connection printed advertisements and was profiled in British Harper’s Bazaar. She was featured in an editorial in Jane magazine alongside fellow model Lydia Hearst-Shaw in March 2007, appeared in Italian Vogue for the second time in May, and in August, posed nude on the cover of i-D magazine with her then-partner, Will Cameron of the band Blondelle, photographed by Terry Richardson.[3]. She again shot for Italian Vogue in 2009 at Bancroft's School in a shoot by Miles Aldridge.

On the runway, Lowe was selected by Karl Lagerfeld to model for Chanel, and has appeared on catwalks in New York, Milan and London for Topshop and designers such as PPQ, Nanette Lepore, Sue Stemp, Charlotte Ronson, Henry Holland, and Vivienne Westwood. She has modelled for Agent Provocateur lingere for the past three years, and has been used by Burberry, Converse shoes, Dr. Martens, Hooch, Wheels and Doll Baby, Ben Sherman, Frost French, Hari, Karen Millen, Diesel SpA and Whistles, as well as for her mother's recent collection of lace dresses.[4][5]

Of the Whistles campaign, Lowe said, "[It] was a favourite shoot of mine... Modelling is a cool outlet for me to express myself, and fashion has always fascinated me. I love that fashion crosses into my other passions - music and art."[6]

Lowe's magazine work includes editorials and covers of publications such as Tatler, Elle, GQ, Vogue, Paradis, Marie Claire, Interview, Jalouse, Teen Vogue, Dirty Glam, Grazia, In Style, Nylon and The Sunday Times Style amongst many others.

She has recently appeared in campaigns for both Marc by Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, Pringle of Scotland, DKNY, Mango and Espirit.

Lowe has some experience in other media, including being the focus of the BBC Two eight-part fly on the wall documentary series Class of 2008, co-hosting Glamour's Best Dressed 2008 with Peaches Geldof for Fiver, and a brief contribution to a blog for Elle UK online. Lowe has worked as a DJ, appeared in the music videos NYC Beat by Armand Van Helden and Bloodthirsty Bastards by Dirty Pretty Things, hosted events for Tommy Hilfiger and Dolce and Gabbana, and in April 2008 made a recording in a New York studio with producer Mark Ronson,[4][7] with whom she had a brief romantic relationship.[8][9][10]

2009 also saw Lowe feature in The First Days of Spring, Noah and the Whale's film accompaniment to their sophomore album.[11]

Personal life

Lowe grew up in Primrose Hill, North London, and stayed with grandparents to continue her education at South Hampstead High School when her mother, Pearl Lowe, moved to Hampshire. Until 2004, Lowe was believed to be the daughter of Pearl Lowe's ex-husband Bronner Lowe, but a paternity test revealed that her godfather, Bush singer/guitarist Gavin Rossdale, was in fact her biological father.[4][12] Her mother Pearl wrote about the situation in her book, All That Glitters, where she revealed that Daisy was in fact Gavin Rossdale's daughter. Daisy's paternity was not questioned at the time, and Lowe listed "Bronner Lowe" on Daisy's birth certificate. Rossdale had initially offered to take a paternity test, but backed away. It wasn't until Daisy found out that neither Lowe nor her mother had the O-type blood that she had, that Lowe sought a paternity test through her lawyers. Rossdale's wife, singer Gwen Stefani, was reported to be furious about this, causing some difficulty in their marriage.

At 16, Lowe said of the press,

"A lot of the stuff that gets written is just complete, mindless bullshit. If something bad is said about any of the people around me, then we all have a conversation about it [...] Most of the time it doesn't have an effect on my life. It's annoying when teachers say they've read things about me, and my head of year takes me aside and asks if I'm all right [...] But you've got to deal with it. There's no point going to cry in the toilet."[13]

Lowe dated William Cameron Jr. (member of the former British indie-rock band Blondelle) from 2007 - January 2008. Lowe then dated Grammy-award winning music producer Mark Ronson in early 2008 until September 2008. As of 2009, Lowe returned to a relationship with Will Cameron until they split up again in September.
