A peek at Daisy Lowe's Instagram account or a glance at the paparazzi pictures and high fashion shoots tells a tale of a life that seems an enviable mix of partying, holidays and unflappable style.
Now in a new interview the model has revealed one of the secrets to staying balanced when leading such a busy life, as well as how she's coped with more difficult times in the past.
Speaking to the Guardian, Lowe said: “I do 20 minutes of transcendental meditation every morning, and I try to do it in the afternoon, too. It is supposed to be the equivalent of three hours’ sleep.
“It settles me, gives my brain a bit of space from itself. I have definitely suffered from depression – it comes in waves – and I think it’s incredible if you don’t.”
Lowe, 26, also discussed the conflicting emotions that arose from finding out Gavin Rossdale was her biological father in the early 00's, candidly describing the fallout as a “s**tshow”.
Mum Pearl Lowe released a frank autobiography in 2007, in which she told how Bush frontman Rossdale, 49, had initially reacted to the results of a paternity test and how her daughter had coped, writing, “Daisy beamed when I told her the result [...]
“Later that day I emailed Gavin. There was no response. When Daisy eventually succeeded in speaking to him, Gavin appeared more concerned with venting his anger about my behavior than engaging with his daughter.
“All this was very hard on Daisy. She spent most days in tears but it is a testimony to her maturity and strength of character that after she overcame her initial hurt she got on with her life.”
Daisy Lowe has since maintained a relationship with Rossdale, who went on to marry and have a family with No Doubt's Gwen Stefani, though the couple started divorce proceedings earlier this month after almost 13 years of marriage.
Lowe told the Guardian: “I was so happy the day I found out Gavin [Rossdale] was my dad. I’d always looked up to him. But it was still a s**tshow trying to get over it. There’s no handbook.”
The model went on to discuss how she's seen as “curvy”, despite not exactly being plus size. “I get labelled as curvy but I’m sure women who are size 14 or 16 find that infuriating.
“I’m only curvy compared to normal model size; I’m not teeny-weeny. Women are our own worst enemies when it comes to how we look.”
Lowe also bemoaned the cons of being single, saying: “I’m a very sensual being, and very tactile, but I have been single for a long time so I’m not as sexual as I’d like to be.”
