Peaches Geldof models for friend’s vintage store

I know there’s this whole trend to bring back ironically ugly sweaters, Members Only jackets and fashion missteps of the past, except there’s almost no way to wear that crap without looking like a clueless tool. Almost no one except you and your goofy group of friends gets the joke and you end up looking like an out of date fashion victim with only your sense of smug self importance to carry it off. You can always tell yourself that you’re so much better than the rest of us who just don’t get it.

Those are the type of people who are likely to wear that crap (and to tweet jokes about surviving potentially deadly car accidents mere moments after the fact). So I guess it’s not surprising to see Peaches Geldof modeling some striped control top pantyhose and various fashion leftovers from the 80s and early 90s. Peaches got canned as the face of Ultimo lingerie after that whole nude heroin photo scandal but she can console herself with this modeling gig for a friend’s vintage store, in which she looks like even more of a tool than usual:

A month after she was dumped as the face of Miss Ultimo lingerie, socialite Peaches Geldof has scored another modelling job.

Currently trying to rebuild her career after her naked pictures scandal, the 21-year-old has posed in new shots for her friend Mark Hunter’s Los Angeles vintage store The Cobra Snake.

While the new images will give Geldof some non-scandalous publicity, the gig is unlikely to land her a payday anywhere near her reported £100,000-a-year contract for Miss Ultimo.

Am I so old and stuffy that I just don’t get it, or is Peaches looking as bad as I think? There are more photos with other models on the website for this store, The Cobra Shop, and some of them are wearing cute 80s artifacts like denim dresses, California Raisins T-Shirts, Lion King Tees, and flannels. There’s mostly ugly crap in there that looks like stuff I used to wear in eighth grade from Deb’s. I guess there’s a market for ugly fashion like this or these places wouldn’t exist. Whatever happened to classy vintage clothing like 50s and 60s cocktail dresses and tailored suits? I guess when I was a kid in the late 80s we had better vintage to pick from and now 30 years later they’re stuck with our leftovers. No wonder they’re so messed up.

Here’s Peaches modeling the clothes. Most of this stuff is sold out – except for the black and white polka dot dress. That’s $52 and is a size 10 if you’re interested. Isn’t Peaches lovely? Check out her manicure. What a class act.

    Deb! Ha. I remember walking by that place as a kid laughing with my sister at how tacky it was. This is ironic because, at the time, I was probably sporting a side pony tail with my neon shoe lace hair clip.

    I actually think the black sweater is kind of cute but the rest should be reserved for Halloween costumes.

    hey. I have those tights, the are American Apparel, cute but i only got a few uses out of them before they got a run.

  3. e says:

    Relli…the pair peaches is wearing has a run too! Check out the 5th photo.

    she is FUG and those clothes are FUG…

    and I don’t give a f*ck how “hip” it becomes, there ain’t no way I am wearing some ugly ass Cosby show sweater like that out in public.

    she is looks like an unattractive child

    What ever happened to Internet “IT” girl Corey Kennedy. The Cobra Snake discovered her and she seems to have faded into the background. Maybe because she turned 18 and he prefers younger models. I’m pissed that the Spice Girl T shirt is sold out. Even though his photography seems a bit perverted, I still like his style.

  7. Chelly says:

    Am i the only one who thinks this chick looks really dirty and smelly??? Her hygiene seems to be in really serious ?, among other things.

  8. Vi says:

    i like those tights but that’s it. i actually thought that hat was a santa hat at first

  9. Ron says:

    I do not get this girl. Everytime I see her I think….YIKES!

  10. Jeri says:

    How can that be a size 10 – I thought no-one was bigger than size 2??!!

  11. danielle says:

    Hmmm-the 2nd hat picture she doesn’t look so bad…these pictures are hysterically low rent looking. Trying to be nice – maybe she just did these as a favor?

  12. MingMing says:

    Seriously, who is this chick? She’s not famous for anything it seems.

  13. GatsbyGal says:

    Oof, Peaches, girlfriend, stop trying to model. You ain’t good at it.

  14. Shannon says:

    Ugh, the Christmas lights just are not making me think “classy” either.

  15. girl says:

    I don’t get it. Is she still trying to convince people she ISN’T on drugs? If so she might want to cover up the control top portion of those pantyhose. It looks stupid on her.

    Is this hipster crap people are always talking about? These photos look like they could have been taken by Ben whatshisnuts just before their romantic little interlude. The drugs would explain the horrid choice in attire.

  16. Billy Baloney says:

    She is just not a very attractive girl, she always looks to be about 13 years old, pale, pasty with really awful tattoos. Blech.

  17. Ruby Red Lips says:

    Is this for real??!!

    Photoshoot??? ..more like playing around with bad flash with your mates – hardly professional

  18. Mischa says:

    Whenever I see pics of that girl my immediate thought is skank

  19. MingMing says:

    Is she a child prostitute or something?

  20. Dhavy says:

    Those people look like they are auditioning for a follow up to Napoleon Dynamite

    Peaches looks used and dirty

  21. Kat says:

    She answers the question, “Who’s *more* skanky than Lindsay Lohan?”

  22. Beck says:

    I would not buy the clothes this chick models. Yuck.
