I’m too clumsy to be sexy: Daisy Lowe
Los Angeles, July 10 (IANS) Model Daisy Lowe, who always believed she was meant to have curves, says she finds herself too clumsy to be “properly sexy”.
The 27-year-old model, who began her modelling career at the age of 15 after being signed to Select Model Management in 2004, believes she was born to have a curvaceous body because she didn’t like her appearance when she weighed almost eight stone when she was younger, reports femalefirst.co.uk.
Speaking about her body shape, she said: “When I was 19 and I split up from my first boyfriend (Will Cameron), I was so devastated I lost two stone (50 kg). I was eight and half stone, I went from a D-cup to an A-cup and my legs were sticks. I worked non-stop that year, but I didn’t like it. I didn’t feel like myself. I’m meant to have curves.
“I hate those labels. You don’t say, ‘White model’ or ‘Skinny model. Why should ‘Plus size’ models have a label? They all sell clothes, that’s the job. I’m definitely a feminist. Women should be happy with their bodies.”
Lowe, who has modelled for luxury designer brands Agent Provocateur lingerie, Burberry and Ben Sherman, revealed she is often told she has a “sexy body”.
“I’m told by designers I have a sexy body and I accept that, but I never feel sexy. I’m far too clumsy to be properly sexy, I’m always falling over,” she told Grazia magazine.
