Model, on her rocker dad

British model and frequent Miami visitor Daisy Lowe is showing off her curves in Playboy’s September issue. The 22-year-old fashionistal, who is the daughter of English singer-songwriter turned fashion designer Pearl Lowe and drumroll…Gavin Rossdale, appears on the cover of the magazine as well as in a playful yet seductive 8-page nude pictorial. Shot by photographer Tony Kelly, the issue hits newsstands, online at, and on Friday

Daisy is a rising star in the British fashion world. She has modeled for high-end brands including Chanel, Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, Agent Provocateur, Marc Jacobs, Vuitton (in South Beach). Labeled by Westwood as a “new style icon of her generation, she was described as “beautiful, sexy, and one of those girls who doesn’t have to try and be anything except herself.”

In addition to posing for Playboy’, the brunette bombshell sat down  to discuss her rock and roll roots, her father and her future:

On discovering at age 15 that her father is Gavin Rossdale, not Danny Goffey, the drummer from Supergrass: “My whole life I thought my father was someone different. But Gavin and Gwen [Stefani] are really good people, and I value so much the time we get together. After seven years we’ve worked out how to be a family. I guess you can’t deny my rock-and-roll heritage! Both my parents – or all four of them – have done well in the music scene.”

On her mother’s drug addiction in the 1990s: “She was very good at hiding it from me. I had no idea. When it comes to drugs I just think, Cool, thanks for learning that lesson for me, Mom, because I don’t want to have to learn it myself.” On her misunderstood identity: “I’ve grown up with rock and roll, but that’s not who I am. People think rock chick is code for ‘parties hard’ – but I don’t. In reality I’m a homebody. I love going to bed at midnight – apart from when I’m in Paris for fashion shows.”

On her future: “I like being creative, and I guess I’ll just go where the wind takes me.”
