Agyness Deyn: Frock ‘n’ Roll


Not since Linda Evangelista has a supermodel changed her appearance as much as Brit Agyness Deyn, who’s dyed her hair platinum blonde, blue-black and fire-engine red—not to mention shaving her head à la Sinéad O’Connor. Now living in the East Village, the tomboy beauty known for wearing scant makeup is a favorite of designers like Burberry, Armani and Vivienne Westwood, but lately Deyn has started to focus on her burgeoning movie career. “I find acting so liberating and freeing,” she says. “My dream is to work on a film playing a deep, complex character with great people to learn from and have a laugh with.” But don’t count fashion out of the big picture yet—Deyn and her younger sister Emily have collaborated on a line of t-shirts for the label Uniqlo.
