She has recently been photographed for British Vogue, W magazine, Dazed & Confused and i-D and worked with photographers including Juergen Teller, Terry Richardson, Mario Testino and Steven Meisel. She has graced the cover of i-D (by Terry Richardson) and the catwalk for Burberry, Vivienne Westwood, Gareth Pugh and Chanel. Her much heralded campaign for Agent Provocateur placed her firmly at the top of the league of most aspirational bodies in the world. She has worked for worldwide brands as diverse as Dr. Martens and Marc Jacobs. BBC made a show about her and her group of inspirational friends. Daisy’s SS09 campaigns include: Pringle of Scotland by Steven Meisel, Marc by Marc Jacobs by Juergen Teller, and DKNY Jeans by Scott Schuman.

IMOGEN POOTS (Next Worldwide)

19 Year old Imogen Poots was born and raised in Chiswick, London , growing up alongside her elder brother, mother and father. She attended Latimer school where she majored in History of Art.
At age 14 she joined the 'Youngblood Theatre Company' in Hammersmith, where the director, Andrew Bradford saw Imogen's huge talent, and helped her to a part in her first movie, 'V for Vendetta', which was to be the turning point in her life. Natalie Portman inspired her by combining studying with acting, consequently age 17 she was picked for the starring role in '28 Weeks Later', playing Robert Carlisle's daughter, Tammy. The movie has achieved cult status, shown by the fan websites, many dedicated to Imogen's character.
Imogen then debuted on BBC television as the lead character 'Fanny' in the epic costume drama, 'Miss Austen Regrets'. In 2009 Imogen has three movies being released. The first, 'Cracks' starring Imogen and Eva Green, was filmed in Ireland and is resonant of 'the Prime of Miss Jean Brodie'. An independent film entitled, 'Orson Wells and Me' received rave reviews at the Toronto Film Festival, and her biggest movie to date, 'Solitary Man' is released later this year. She plays Michael Douglas's best friends daughter, with whom he has an affair. Imogen feels the movie has echoes of 'Lost in Translation' as it centres on her very poignant relationship with Michael Douglas's character.
Imogen was scouted and signed by 'Select Models' when she was 15. Knowing nothing of her acting, they were drawn to her exquisitely beautiful face. She has worked with US teen Vogue and 10 Magazine. Imogen's main love outside acting, is art, her favorite artist being Jenny Saville, who, interestingly, chooses the phenomenon of obesity as her theme.
Imogen has been sited by numerous newspapers and magazines, including The Telegraph and Harpers Bazaar, as having a formidable acting talent, along with extreme beauty, and therefore very much, 'the one to watch for 2009'.
