Mark Ronson and Daisy Lowe have been partying up a storm lately and it’s not surprising if you consider the family background of this stylish duo. Mark, 32, was brought up in London by a wealthy family; his stepfather is famed rock guitarist, Mick Jones, and his mom is writer and socialite, Ann Dextor-Jones. His sister, Samantha Ronson, is in the limelight nowadays because of her sapphic relationship with Lindsay Lohan. Meanwhile, Daisy, 19,  was raised by mom, Pearl Lowe, who is a singer-cum-designer. When Daisy was 15, a paternity test proved Gavin Rossdale as the biological father (he was Daisy’s godfather prior to the test), making her Gwen Stefani’s stepdaughter.

Don’t let these connections fool you as Mark and Daisy are both accomplished in their own right. Mark has won 3 Grammy’s for producing Amy Winehouse’s music and Daisy is a busy model with Vogue and Elle editorials under her belt. The glamorous couple met through Sean Lennon (yes, John’s son) last year and have been together since. Some have dubbed them the new “Pete Doherty and Kate Moss” but they seem content to ignore the attention. For now, Mark and Daisy are just eager to wear quirky and smart outfits to the next party in London.

Behold! I came across the most marvelous video of Agyness Deyn, her brother, Lily Donaldson, and Gemma Ward backstage at the Jean Paul Gaultier S/S show. You may disagree with me but I adore Agyness with jet black hair! Gemma looks effortlessly cute and cool as usual. And Lily is just hilarious. Enjoy the video!

Agyness Deyn’s arrival in mainstream media has been explosive. Her distinctive blonde hair has bobbed on countless catwalks and more recently, I-D magazine has devoted an entire issue completely to her. As in no other models were photographed for the photoshoots. This model extraordinaire seems to have it all. Or does she?

Agyness is the newly-crowned darling of Perez Hilton but is that a good thing? The self-proclaimed “Queen of All Media” has not exactly crafted his reputation out of having good taste or a fine eye. In this case, Perez may have jumped on the bandwagon a little late. Agyness is certainly no spring chicken (in the modeling world). For quite awhile, the true age of the model remained heavily debated amongst insiders. On Deyn’s part, she helped perpetuate the mystery by saying she was 18. The truth? She was born Laura Hollins in Littleborough, England on February 16, 1983. Yes, she is 25. No, Agyness is not her real name.

Whatever you think of her, Agyness is a breath of fresh air in a sea of today’s generic models. One of her biggest assets is her versatility. Her chameleon-like abilities are evident in the I-D issue. Not many people can dress up like a man and pull off a fake treasure-trail! It is almost certain that we can expect more from this Brit punk but she has big shoes to fill post-Kate Moss. Meanwhile, the fashion world can only watch as she attempts to take it by storm. A few photos from her I-D issue below.
