'Phwoar!' was Grazia Daily's first reaction when we caught sight of these saucy shots...
Nope, they're not retro pics of pin-up Bettie Page, or images from Crystal Renn’s latest campaign - this is, indeed, the gwageous Daisy Lowe. The hip Brit model has just revealed the results of a collaboration with Peacocks, which has her designing vintage inspired swimwear for summer 2011, and who better to model the range than Miss Leggy Lowe herself? In fact, the purse - and figure - friendly collection of sexy bikinis, swimsuits and shorts represents everything we adore about the multi-talented 22-year-old: sass, style and super-confidence. So is this latest venture another triumph in her 'curve crusade'? We're saying yes! Because not only is Daisy, who cites the buxom Lara Stone as her body-spiration, looking brilliantly bootylicious, but her debut collection is inspired by voluptuous fifties icons like Sophia Loren.
Besides, after the success of Pearl's five sell-out collections of vintage inspired tea dresses for the bargain brand, it's no wonder Daisy's following in Mama Lowe's footsteps. And this'll mean no more dressing up in mum’s clothes, OK D-Lo? 'My mum is my style icon and it was great growing up and having access to her closet,' she confessed. 'I’m so pleased I now have my own collection to wear and share with my friends instead of nagging my mum for hers.' Well, quite.
‘Daisy Lowe for Peacocks’ will launch in selected Peacocks’ stores and online from next month, and is available in sizes 8 to 16, and in cup sizes 32B to 36DD. Summer, here we come!
