Many of those who are interested in the fashion world know the name Agyness Deyn. She is a recognized icon of the English youth style. In addition, the model Agyness Deyn today is one of the most sought-after in the fashion world, as well as one of the rare lucky ones who escaped from a small ordinary town to the world's fashion stage solely by her work, step by step moving towards the intended goal.
Essays on the life of a model
Agyness Deyn began her life in a small town in the English county of Greater Manchester. She grew up in a large family, without a father. The mother was forced to support all three children herself on the small salary of a local hospital nurse. Accordingly, Agnes (or rather, Laura Hollins, as she was then called), realizing early that there was no one to wait for help, got a job as a saleswoman in a nearby shop. Then in a small city restaurant - as a waitress, providing not only herself, but also helping her family. At the same time, the future model continued to study successfully at school and eventually entered the lyceum. At the age of 16, Laura went to work in a local beer bar, from which her modeling career began. The owner of the bar decided to arrange a beauty contest, one of the participants of which was Laura and, of course,won, and went to conquer London with the reward.
Finding a place in the sun
To somehow survive in the big city, she had to get a job in a night bar, and during the day the future diva hung around the doorsteps of modeling agencies and went to all kinds of castings, trying to catch on in the modeling field. Nevertheless, she received her first significant contract with the modeling agency Models-1 quite by accident - she ran into a famous photographer on the street.
It was this chance acquaintance that became the starting point of her modeling career. Models-1 stylists have turned the provincial English eccentric girl Laura into a platinum blonde with character - the icon of the youth style of Britain, Agyness Deyn.
Authentic style was created for her, which fully corresponded to her edgy character. The business card of the young model was a short haircut "like a boy", large chains, bracelets and a defiant look.
It should be noted that even now the already established model does not change her image of an eccentric girl. Each new haircut of Agyness Deyn causes an explosion of delight, this woman is used to shocking the public and does not deviate from her traditions. She easily parted with platinum bob hair, dyeing them black, then generally turns into a short-haired, but very feminine boy. Adoring all headwear without exception, she constantly changes style, while remaining fashionable and youthful.
In 2006, the first photos of Agyness Deyn appeared on the cover of Vogue magazine.
From the moment Agnes came to work at the Models-1 agency, and her face began to appear on the covers of world fashion magazines, she was invited to cooperate with the best fashion houses: Burberry, John Galliano, Giorgio Armani, Vivienne Westwood, Paul Smith, Cacharel and others.
Designer Henry Holland was fascinated by her beauty, and Agnes, thanks to his patronage, began to represent the House of Holland fashion house and a collection of T-shirts from Henry Holland.
On the wave of popularity
The peak of her fame can be called 2008, when model Agyness Deyn became the main "event" of fashion week in London. She was also recognized as the best model of the year by the rating of the British Fashion Awards and took part in the advertising campaign of the New Look brand, displacing Drew Barrymore from this place. At this time, they began to talk about the fact that Agnes decided to change her profession and leave the modeling business for show business. She even created her own musical group, but this initiative of hers was not crowned with success. She had to return to the modeling industry, and already in 2008, Agnes again conquered the world catwalks. However, her musical hobbies bore fruit, and a couple of years later she was invited to appear in the video of the group Five O'Clock Heroes, and in 2011 - in the video of the French musician Woodkid.
Now Agyness Deyn continues to work in the fashion industry, representing the Jean Paul Gaultier brands Ma Dame, Shiseido and House of Holland, as well as Beat Eau de Toilette by Burberry.
Successful in everything
Agyness Deyn can be called not only a popular model, but also a successful woman. She has succeeded not only in the fashion industry, but also in her personal life. At various points in her modeling career, she was in love relationships with show business stars such as musicians Josh Hubbard and Miles Kane, and Hollywood stars (actor Josh Harnett). And in 2012, another American actor, Giovanni Ribisi, became her chosen one, with whom she secretly married. Now the spouses do not yet have their own family hearth and live either in the United States or in England. However, in the near future, much should change in this way of life. In the near future, the couple intend to buy a new house and finally decide on a permanent place of residence.
Agyness Deyn's career has become a model not only of determination, but also of the great talent of the model.
