Sexy Sophie Dahl sizzles as Blondie singer Debbie Harry
By JAMES TAPPER

Her friends have long said she resembles Debbie Harry. And now Sophie Dahl has transformed herself into the Blondie singer for the latest issue of Vogue.

But despite her homage to an American pop icon, she is turning her back on New York after eight years - and heading back to Britain. 

The model, who is reportedly dating singer Jamie Cullum, 27, after splitting from her American boyfriend Dan Baker, tells the magazine: "I'm homesick. Simple as that. I'm a real English girl." 

Speaking of England, she adds: "There's an irreverence here, and an ease, and a humour."

And her wish list includes "a big garden in the country, and I'll wear eccentric hats. I might have to join the WI," she says.

"Give them my jam. Have cake sales. But I don't think I'll ever be a horsey kind of woman."

Miss Dahl's stunning pictures in typical Debbie Harry poses will raise a smile among friends who have often remarked on the similarity. Blur bassist Alex James said after seeing her sing at a party: "She brought the house down; sang and looked like a cross between Debbie Harry and Marilyn Monroe."

Read the full interview and see the pictures in the November Vogue, on sale tomorrow.
