Peaches Geldof dropped by lingerie
By Sherna Noah, Press Association
Peaches Geldof has been
axed as the «face and body» of underwear brand Ultimo following
claims about her private life.
The company said it would be removing
visuals of the 21-year-old, who was appointed in May last year, from
all shops and window displays.
In a statement, a spokeswoman for Miss
Ultimo lingerie said : « We have been in meetings all morning with
regards to the stories that have surfaced over the weekend about
Peaches and unfortunately we have no option but to terminate her
« Miss Ultimo is a brand geared
towards a young female audience and as a company we
have a social responsibility to ensure
we are promoting only positive role models that young
women can aspire to.
We are thus in the process of removing Peaches from the website and
we are working with
Debenhams to remove her visuals from
all Miss Ultimo shops and window displays throughout
the UK. »
Michelle Mone, the founder of the
brand, said : « We’ve given this a lot of thought, but
there’s a point where a business must
stick to its principles and as a brand that targets
young women, we feel it is
impossible for Peaches to continue to work with us as the face of
Miss Ultimo lingerie. »
The Miss Ultimo range is
geared towards women aged 18 to 25 and has been stocked in
Debenhams stores and
Geldof is thought to be currently in Los Angeles.
Her spokeswoman was not immediately
available for comment.
A lawyer for the model and socialite
has denied the reports of drug-taking, saying Geldof
Jonathan Coad said in a statement :
« The allegations that our client was carrying and injecting
heroin are… denied, our client having
consumed alcohol with the other individual leading
to the ‘highs’ described and
portrayed in the photographs. »
Storm, the model agency,
said it had no plans to drop Geldof from its books.
Geldof, the daughter
of Bob Geldof, divorced rock musician Max Drummey after a six-month
marriage last year.
They married in secret
in a drive-in ceremony in Las Vegas after a 10-day romance.
