Agyness Deyn: Creepin’ On Ah Come Up

Agyness is slowly making her move and it looks like she’s laying the foundation of a lasting modeling career. I would say not a lot of people, besides anyone who follows fashion or celebrity news, knows her by name, but I’m sure many of you have seen an ad she’s in, including being last year’s face of Burberry.

However, she’s not just another run-of-the mill model. She’s carefully positioning herself to reach household name status. That’s because she’s jacking work from all over. And by jacking, I mean stealing work from other models. Fashion corporations are dropping models in order to make room for Agyness on their roster. One of the most notable was the recent bird dropping of Kate Moss for Calvin Klein’s revival of the CKOne fragrance, of ’90s fame, so the world can watch Agyness Deyn spray herself (with the fragrance). And this isn’t the first time Kate Moss was told she’s old news and Agyness was the future. Another impressionable feat was international cosmetics giant, Shiseido, pushing Angelina Jolie (the goddess, herself!) aside for the girl with the ghost-white complexion. Agyness Deyn, that is!

But what is it about this girl? Is it the name you can’t pronounce correctly? I’m not even sure of its proper pronunciation. Is she truly a phenomenal model worth of all this cash being thrown at her? Does she have 200+ smiles like Tyra Banks?

Part of her appeal is her visage of mystery. Everything about her facial features sucks the audience in. Her platinum-blond haircut, her eyebrows that don’t match her hair color, her blue eyes, her perfectly square face, all say, “I’m a unique model, a totally different breed. Please like me.” And we do, Agyness, we do! She also likes to fashion herself in styles influenced by British Punk, or even better, British Rave.

Another reason why she’s been riding the wave for this long is because she HASN’T BEEN INVOLVED IN ANYTHING SCANDALOUS. Meaning, she doesn’t have a drug problem, she hasn’t married her uncle, and she’s doesn’t have a super-diva attitude. And if she did, she has done very well in keeping it out of the press. The only news we hear from her is when she’s pulling jack moves on other models.

I hope I get to see more of her. Personally, I feel she’s the model of our generation. Naomi Campbell, Tyra Banks, Kate Moss, Claudia Schiffer (HAHA), there time has passed. If there’s anyone who’s going to be labeled as ubiquitous, I’m ready for Agyness Deyn to take the reins.

    I just don’t like her…she rarely poses with her mouth shut…it is nice that she isn’t controversial though.
