Forget Paris and Lindsay, there’s a new breed of socialites taking the party scene by storm. Here’s a guide to who’s who.
The 19-year-old daughter of Brit rocker Bob Geldof and his then-wife, the late TV presenter Paula Yates, has made more than a few headlines for her rebellious antics. Her day job? In 2005, Peaches wrote and presented her own television program, Peaches Geldof: Teenage Mind, which spawned other TV appearances. She’s also penned several articles for British newspapers, and is the face of Aussie fashion label Dotti. Currently dating: Faris Badwan, lead singer of Brit garage rock band The Horrors.
Star of reality TV show The Hills, “LC” lives in the Hollywood Hills, and spends her time partying at hot clubs, shopping with friends and working out at the gym with MTV cameras following her every move. The 22-year-old famously fell out with her one-time BFF and co-star Heidi Montag, who dates the show’s villain, Spencer Pratt.
Princess Beatrice of York
Who said royals couldn’t be IT girls? When the 19-year-old isn’t undertaking work experience as a “stylist” at UK department store Selfridges, Bea attends lavish parties with her mum (the other Fergie), and goes clubbing with friends including Kelly Osbourne and Elvis’ granddaughter Riley Keough.
After being “spotted” at a UK shopping centre as a teen, 25-year-old Agyness (real name Laura Hollins) has become one of the world’s most famous models. Also a singer, Aggy often DJs at nightclubs, and thanks to her quirky style, regularly makes “best dressed” lists. Currently dating: Albert Hammond Jr of rock band The Strokes.
Despite being the heiress of her great-grandfather’s publishing fortune, 23-year-old Lydia has also carved out a career as a model, played a guest role on Gossip Girl, and is a columnist for the New York Post.
Though best known for her hit single ‘Smile’, Lily, 23, has been doing more partying than singing lately. The daughter of actor/musician Keith Allen and film producer Alison Owen was recently kicked off a yacht during the Cannes Film Festival after ripping of her bikini top and jumping into the ocean.
