The battle of the LFW It-Brits

26 February 2009

Now we don't like to be mean. And we don't like to encourage competition. But what's a Grazia writer to do when Pixie, Daisy and Alice Dellal take to the catwalks for London Fashion Week? We feel it's only fair now the shows are over to take a moment to assess the models/socialites/DJs/designers (shall we just call them the slash girls?) on their catwalk merits. And find out who wins the battle of the It-Brits this Fashion Week. If only they could all win...


Daisy Lowe
Show count: Vivienne Westwood
, PPQ, Aquascutum and Pam Hogg.
Advantages: She only went and abandoned us to live in New York last year, so it's always nice to see Miss Daisy Lowe back in London Town. Especially because you can hear the squeal she makes when greeting Pixie halfway across the city.
Disadvantages: Yes, yes. She ruled the catwalk all right. But she wasn't the usual party animal. After celebrating her belated 21st with a group of friends one night (and leaving first) she was ‘too tired' to make it to any other Fashion Week parties. Huh? How much sleep do 21-year-olds need these days?
Crowning moment: Opening the PPQ show. Or tripping at the end of the Vivienne Westwood catwalk. You decide.


Pixie Geldof
Show count: PPQ
and Luella.
Advantages: A star-studded family, who'll fly over from New York for just 48 hours to see her walk.
Disadvantages: A star-studded family, who look more interested in their Starbucks Venti Cappuccino (Sir Bob) and choosing their next party dress (Peaches) than watching her walk...
Crowning moment: Putting in more front row appearances than catwalk ones (we stopped counting after five...) Mind you, Luella counts for more than just one modelling gig doesn't it?


Alice Dellal
Show count: Vivienne Westwood, PPQ, Issa, Pam Hogg and Johnny Blue Eyes.
Advantages: Her sister Charlotte is one of our favourite shoe designers. Her half-shaven head actually helped inspire the hair trends at the Issa show. Oh, and she actually walked in the most shows. But we don't like to get too literal.
Disadvantages: She let Johnny Blue Eyes persuade her to walk wearing a thong over fishnets and very little else. Poor thing.
Crowning moment: Overheard on the fashion bus after PPQ: ‘I didn't recognise her with a full head of hair. And looking clean.' We'd take that as a compliment if we were you, Alice.
