ince posing for FHM UK’s Halloween special two years back (it was her first-ever shoot), 26-yearold Daisy Pettinger has taken the modelling world by storm. Just last year, Britain saw her seductively sipping on a bottle of Coke Zero and managing to make a bowl of Kellogg’s Special K look trouserrubbingly exciting. Our UK counterparts even confessed that they’d have her in their mag every single month if they could. In fact, feast your eyes on these pictures and give them one good reason not to.

“You’ll probably find it easier to recognise me with my clothes of f.”

DAI SY PETTI NG E R

You’re everywhere in the UK right now. What’s your latest steamy advert? My last shoot was for an Ann Summers (lingerie and sex toys retailer) Christmas commercial, but you don’t see my face. Just my bod. I do a lot of lingerie and swimwear jobs. You’ll probably find it easier to recognise me with my clothes off. What did the ad involve? It’s really embarrassing. Basically, I had to have a sexy romp with a male model in my underwear. Don’t tell my mum! Actually, she knows… but my dad doesn’t. Do you have any tattoos that might help us recognise you? Only on my foot, but I don’t think people will be concentrating on the feet. How long have you been modelling? I’ve been doing it for 10 years, since I was 16. I went to Japan when I was 17 to model. I did

some crazy s**t; they are absolutely mental over there. What was the weirdest thing you had to do? One of my first Japanese adverts was for a breast pump. I was 17 and was given this newborn child, which I then had to hold, topless — I had nothing on. The agency also liked the models to have super-pale skin, so every morning they’d rub loads of sun cream on us, to make sure we wouldn’t get any kind of tan. Bizarre. Are you a fan of the model lifestyle then? No way. I’m proper down-to-earth, I don’t like the whole model scene. Don’t get me wrong, I appreciate nice things, but I love a pizza voucher. I just think, why not? Dough balls and a pizza for $15 — who can say no to that? And I love a pint or a cup of tea. A really good

date would be brunch; that’s the best meal of the day. What kind of men would you like to have brunch with? Men that aren’t wankers. High standards indeed. What’s a real turn off? Probably a guy who can’t grow a beard. I like a beard. I don’t get the whole One Direction thing at all. What’s the world coming to? They’re children, and people are just going mad over them. I like men. I also like a guy who can laugh at himself. I meet a lot of male models and they take themselves way too seriously; they’re way worse than the girls. They’re so vain and all they do is talk about gym. Get over yourself! It’s a shame that they are so pretty, but on the whole they’re just a bit vacuous.

I do a lot of yoga and Pilates. FHM 06/13 083 . one guy tried to ask me out. I don’t like the whole model scene. So where do your talents lie? You know that game where you have a cereal box and you have to bend down and pick it up without bending your knees and without using your hands? I’m f**king ace at that game. “I’m down-to .” You need some confidence. “Um. I really don’t know how people run that. I love a pint or a cuppa. no? Not really. I could take you out for dinner. and we were pacing it. He sent me a message saying. possibly. maybe. I’m not very sporty. You can say I “did” a marathon. “I’m picking you up at 8 o’clock. though. That would sound better and it’s not technically a lie. I need someone who’s as bossy as I am.ear th. would it be okay if. We were dying by the end. basically because they’re easier. I’m very flexible. I’m still in pain from it. What would be the best way for a man to find out how flexible you are? I can’t stand pathetic men. I’m also very good at the limbo. This summer.” But surely you spend as much time in the gym as they do. maybe?” No way. I walked a marathon recently. So who would be your perfect man? Jenson Button — I have a small obsession with him. It took us eight hours. very good actually. Daisy. by American Apparel. I get a bit freaked out by the gym. He’s my favourite Formula 1 driver.

Another puzzling aspect is the creative decision to swap lead singer Julian Casablancas’ distinctly cool “I really don’t give a toss” vocals for a whiny indie-driven falsetto — especially noticeable on One Way Trigger and Chances. At that time. Tracks like Welcome to Japan and 50/50 do exactly that. My debut Mandarin album is entitled Ming Tian/Ming Day. you’re probably wondering what on earth happened.
