14-year-old is new face of high street brand Accessorize
Noel Gallagher‘s teenage daughter Anaïs has landed her first modeling job after signing to Select Model Management three years ago.
The 14-year-old has been unveiled as the new face of high street accessory shop Accessorize, fronting the brand’s new Tween collection, Star.
Anaïs, the daughter of the former Oasis man and designer Meg Mathews, who divorced Gallagher in 2001, has curated the range based on “fun, novelty pieces with an on-trend angle”. Speaking about her collaboration with the store, she said: “It’s exciting! It’s great to be part of the launch. I love Accessorize and the Star accessories really suit my style”.
The teen is known for her environmental stance and has spoken out to raise awareness for eco-friendly accessories in the past. Last August she said: “it’s important to know what your clothes are made of. I’m a big animal lover, and want to show people how easy rocking animal-free fashion can be!” She also called for a dog kennel in Finland named after Oasis to cease their Labrador breeding programme on ethical grounds.
Anaïs was hired to co-host Friday Download on children’s channel CBBC last year. She provides fashion and style tips on the show, which has been hosted by singer Dionne Bromfield – Amy Winehouse’s goddaughter – since 2011.
The model recently recalled an incident in which her dad embarrassed her in front of One Direction member Harry Styles. “I was in a cafe once and Harry came in. I’d been joking that I’d probably wet myself if 1D walked in. So my dad started kicking me under the table and shouted, ‘Are you going to wet yourself now?’ I literally died,” she said.
