A Fashionable Scandal - Irina Lazareanu Engaged to Pete Doherty

This latest scandal shocked the fashion community when Irina Lazareanu revealed that she was engaged in an interview with Women's Wear Daily. Her fiance? None other than Babyshambles
member, Pete Doherty.

Now, if you have been following the story, Pete Doherty is the recent ex of Supermodel Kate Moss - and his infamous trouble with drugs has had him in and out of rehab several times. He and Kate Moss broke up a mere three months ago - and she was instrumental in sky rocketing Irina's modeling career.

Irina, who was born in Canada, headed to England and ended up touring with Babyshambles a few years back. This is where she became friends with Moss and Doherty. When I spoke with Irina in an interview in 2006, she mentioned that the trio were quite close and that her first interest was music, not modeling.

But a model she became when Moss took the lithe girl under her wing and chose her to pose for a fashion spread in French Vogue that Moss herself edited. She also had Irina model in her ad campaign for her fashion line sold at Top Shop.

Considering the drug scandal Moss endured and Doherty's repeated trips to rehab, it's a mystery why Irina would want to get in deep with Pete. I mean, Kate broke up with him because he was allegedly cheating on her - but I guess that doesn't matter to Irina - she is already sporting an engagement ring.
