Westminster
Greater London, England
Death: Apr. 7, 2014

British Journalist, Television Presenter and Model. Born in London, second daughter of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates and the granddaughter of Hughie Green. Her sisters are Fifi Trixibelle Geldof and Pixie Geldof. She also had a younger half-sister, Tiger Lily Hutchence Geldof. She grew up in Chelsea, London, and Faversham, Kent, and was educated at Queen's College, London. After moving out of her father's house at eighteen, Peaches rented a flat in Islington, North London. She completed her A-Levels and was offered a place to read English at Queen Mary & Westfield College, University of London, but deferred it to move to New York with then-husband, Max Drummey. She wrote a magazine column for the UK edition of Elle Girl, starting with its April 2004 issue and continuing until the magazine folded in October 2005. From ages 14 to 17, she wrote a weekly socio-political column for The Daily Telegraph, and wrote numerous articles for The Guardian. Geldof wrote and presented her own documentary TV programme, Peaches Geldof: Teenage Mind in 2005, which was followed up with Peaches Geldof: Teen America, which aired on Sky One in the UK on 1 March 2006. In 2006, Geldof was placed at number seven in the Tatler's list of Top Ten Fashion Icons for the year, the youngest person on the list. In 2007, readers of FHM voted her the 53rd sexiest woman in the world. In September 2007 Geldof made her catwalk début modelling for PPQ at London Fashion Week. She was also announced as the face of the Australian fashion line Dotti. Premiering on 19 October 2008 was Peaches: Disappear Here, a MTV One reality show in which Peaches founds a new youth-orientated magazine. In 2009 Peaches was signed to a six-figure modelling deal to become the face of the Miss Ultimo collection. Michelle Mone, the head of Ultimo underwear said at the time "Peaches was the perfect choice for this campaign. She's young, edgy with lashings of style". The collection was launched at the Debenhams department store in Oxford Street in May 2009.[citation needed] Peaches was subsequently dropped from the Ultimo brand in March 2010 after nude pictures and allegations of drug use were posted on the Internet and published in the media. Geldof vehemently denied the claims and said, "I am disappointed that Ultimo has decided not to extend my contract based on a wildly exaggerated account of a night in Los Angeles five months ago." Mone said that "as a brand that targets young women, we feel it is impossible for Peaches to continue." In 2011 Geldof presented a six-part series on ITV2 called OMG! with Peaches Geldof, a magazine-format chat and guest show with audience participation. (bio courtesy of: Wikipedia)
