Pete Doherty Engaged To Another Model – How Does He Do It?

Pete Doherty must be quite a catch, it’s just I don’t see it. Perhaps it’s his ingenuity, making his cat its own little crack pipe? Perhaps it’s his bedroom abilities? I don’t think it’s his musical talent, since as far as I can tell he doesn’t spend a whole lot of time making any. Still, he must have something going for him, with his rumoured engagement to model Irina Lazareanu.

“I very recently got engaged,” the Romania-born, Canada-reared Lazareanu, 25, is quoted by the fashion-industry trade paper as saying at Tuesday’s fashion shows in Paris. No wedding date has been set, the paper adds.

Lazareanu and Doherty have reportedly known each other for 10 years and have long been linked through his band – she was a backup singer – as well as with fellow musician (and friend) Sean Lennon.

A rep for Lazareanu’s agency would not confirm or deny the engagement. But a friend who was with her backstage Tuesday told PEOPLE, “She had a huge rock on her finger and when I asked her about it, she said she was engaged.”


Irina is friends with Kate Moss, she was featured when Kate guest-edited Vogue, and was the face of her Top Shop collection.

Pete was given a chance to kick his drug habit before his next court hearing by judge Davinder Lachhar. This is a result of his negative drug test results over the last six weeks. Pete is appearing in court charged with – what else? – drug and motoring offences.

Kate Moss might be feeling like it just isn’t her week – her ex-fiance is now marrying her friend and she’s in trouble for wearing false eyelashes. While most of us think that a well placed false eyelash is the ultimate in flirt power, it seems wearing them in a mascara advertisement gets you in trouble with British television watchdogs.

Rimmel’s “Magnif’eyes mascara” adverts broke the rules by using images which may have exaggerated the product’s benefits, it added. And the television advert’s claim that the mascara gave “70 per cent more lash lift” could have misled viewers because it referred to a change in appearance, not actual lash length.

J Walter Thompson, the advertising agency behind Rimmel’s campaign, told the authority that Moss’s eyelashes were “cleaned up and enhanced” in post-production but did not explain the extent to which their appearance had been changed.

It insisted that Moss did not wear false lashes at the shoot but supplied no evidence to support its denial.


I thought everyone knew that false eyelashes were used in make up advertisements, particularly the recently panned Penelope Cruz ad where her lashes look like a couple of spiders are dancing on her eyelids. Truth in advertising, what next?

Note by Celebitchy: Kate Moss has been blabbing to friends that she’s engaged to her new boyfriend, musician Jamie Hince of The Hills, so it’s possible that Pete and Irina’s engagement was prompted by that news.
