For someone who claims she doesn’t want to look sexy, Peaches Geldof is certainly accomplished when it comes to striking a sultry pose.She has once again stripped down to her underwear to promote the underwear range Miss Ultimo, marketed to appeal to younger women.And with her teasing pose, coy glances, high heels and stockings, Peaches’s new shoot has all the makings of a 1950s pin-up – except for the tattoos.
More than 20 litter her body, including a large daisy chain snaking up her left leg, torso and chest, and various cartoon motifs.’It’s obvious I’m not dressing for men,’ she recently revealed. ‘I don’t want to be sexy. I’m like covered in tattoos. I have piercings.I’m just grungy and weird and not what is socially accepted as beautiful, and I think that’s cool.’
But, with Miss Ultimo paying her thousands to pose, she managed to put aside her ‘grungy’ inclinations.In a press release accompanying the photos she remarked: ‘I love the stylish yet sexy 1950s feel of the whole collection.’It appeals to a girl who can mix and match her underwear, to make undressing as fun as dressing. I like the different colours and styles.’It’s sexy, but also kitsch and playful. Most of all, it’s comfortable and fits well.’
