Celeb rebel, n. (sɐˈlɛbrɜˌti rĕb'əl)
© Kate Moss for Agent Provocateur
One who generates more headlines for their excesses than one's day job.
Whether you're a hot young actress like Lindsay Lohan, a rock star like Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty or a professional, um, 'socialite' like Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie, life must be so downright dull that rebellion is the only answer...
A new generation of starlets, models, socialites, fashionistas and enfants terribles are harking back to the Seventies with their sex, drugs and rock'n'roll lifestyles. Young, gorgeous, filthy-rich and talented (yes, self-promotion is an art form), they're fast becoming icons of our age and it seems we just can't get enough of them.
