The offspring of rock star royalty all have a certain style about them. Lourdes Ciccone Leon of Madonna lineage, Daisy Lowe of Pearl Lowe and Gavin Rossdale fame, Pixie Geldoff who hails from Sir Bob himself and of course Georgia May Jagger of the royal Rolling Stones family. They’re edgy, irreverent, naughty and sometimes nice, but with a hint of irony. In short they dress like rock stars, only younger and hotter.
From four young women come four unique takes on how to dress like rock star spawn: the rock chick, the punk, the sophisticate and the Lolita.
Model and “it” girl Daisy Lowe, 24, is the poster child for rock chick fashion. The daughter of former singer/songwriter Pearl Lowe and Bush front man Gavin Rossdale, Lowe mixes off-duty model with rock groupie. Rarely seen in the same outtfit twice, she will channel the Harajuku girl look that step-mother Gwen Stefani champions, with cute baby doll dresses, opaque tights and block heels for day and then vamp it up in a floor length sequined ball gown, replete with tousled bed-hair for evening.
A regular at Glastonbury and Coachella music festivals, Lowe embodies effortless festival chic in denim cut-offs and a crop singlet with merely sunglasses as accessories. On other occasions she reveals her inner wild child in fur and hot pants.
Meanwhile, sixteen-year-old Lourdes Leon heads to the punk movement for style inspiration when attending New York’s LaGuardia High School of Music Art and Performing Arts or hanging out with boyfriend and Homeland actor Timothee Chalamet. Leon recently made headlines for attending a Kabbalah service sporting long green locks. In her funky headbands, ripped jeans, and grungy t-shirts Lourdes regularly looks like she’s stepped out of one of mother Madonna’s original 1980s film clips.
Sure, she can scrub up for the red carpet and rocks a sequin mini dress like a pro (pro-fessional that is), but Lourdes is rarely seen out of flannel, denim, combat boots and distressed muscle tees.
By contrast, model and socialite Pixie Geldof, 22, whose upbringing has been anything but ordinary, opts for more sophisticated demure looks. The singer/songwriter of band Violet lets her pixie crop hairstyle, which is sometimes platinum and other times brunette, do all the talking. Geldoff channels a young Mia Farrow with her quirky street urchin dresses and mix of silks, leather and a good old cotton shirt.
Like her mother model Jerry Hall and father Mick Jagger, Georgia May Jagger is simply fabulous. The leggy, blonde model’s sense of style seems to hail from the original Lolita herself. Figure hugging little black dresses, lace gowns and jackets and crop tops all pale into insignificance next to Jagger’s shock of sexy tousled hair and pouty lips. Of course having access to her mother’s wardrobe helps.
Do any of these rock sprogs have the same cool as their parents? Or are they merely rich kids who are famous for nothing?
