The former wild child sheds pounds as she cleans up her act for her man

When Peaches Geldof showed off a svelte new look recently, we barely recognised her.

Famous for her hedonistic lifestyle, the socialite stepped out at Net-a-Porter’s Dolce & Gabbana party 
at London’s Westfield shopping centre in a sparkly gown that clung to her slim figure.

Peaches, 22, is thought to have 
shed 1½st since March, dropping from 10st to 8½st.

But the 5ft 7in star has defended her weight loss, insisting she’s still eating sensibly.

‘To those telling me I look skinny and to eat something, I can assure you I’ve just cut out eating crap.

‘
I still eat like a horse, guys!’ she Tweeted on 14 July.

We can reveal that the reason for Peaches’ weight loss is that things are getting serious with her latest beau, musician Thomas Cohen, who she began dating in January.

Peaches says it really is true love this time, so she’s decided to turn her life around,’ says our source.

‘She wants to avoid being in the papers for the wrong reasons, so she’s stopped the wild partying and has been working out like crazy and eating healthily.’
