Agyness Deyn



Agyness Deyn is an English model. Her real name is Laura Hollins.

The
extravagant top was born February 16, 1983 in England. Initially, Agyness Deyn did not intend to become a model, at the age of 16 she worked as a waitress in Manchester and decided to go try her luck in London. 
  There, she is again waitress but also bartender at night and  took classes in comedy and music. In short, Agyness Deyn had only small jobs until she was discovered at the age of 18.

Renowned for her
crazy looks and her original haircuts, Agyness Deyn posed for the Burberry campaign in 2007 alongside the top Lily Cole, replacing Kate Moss.
 



 
That is the year she is really discovered and start incessante fashion shows and photoshoots like on the cover of Vogue US where she poses with other tops like Jessica Stam, Doutzen Kroes, and other promising models.
 
 In just a few seasons, she was able to rank among the greatest models. She was also the new face of the fragrance Ma Dame by Jean Paul Gaultier and Dr Martens (see video below). But Agyness Deyn is more than just a model. She also created a line of t-shirts with original messages and being passionate about music, she is also in a band called Lucky Knitwear.

 
Agyness Deyn, is one of the rock stars of the fashion world. Her beauty could have been classic but it was quickly reinterpreted by the girl herself in an unconventional mix of angelic and androgynous.

  She resembles neither Gisele Bundchen and Daria Werbowy, who are the image of sporty and healthy, nor Raquel Zimmerman, correct in every way. Agyness distills around her a strange aura of contrasts she made on her own. Angelic and sexy, playful and wise, tomboy and frail Blondie ... She shines backstage by her laughter and incessant smoking.
 
 Her usual look consists a curious mix of genres - punk-rock + playfull it-bag -that surprisingly never makes her look out of place.


 

 I LOVE AGYNESS DEYN

How to wear Creepers

 
asos 95 pounds / underground 75 pounds / underground 85 pounds
  
First reserved for punks and goths, these shoes have made their rehab in fashion shows. A look resolutely masculine rock that we will try to adopt and twist without a miss. But how to adopt these very special shoes made ​​in Britain?

Play it preppy : the creepers are imposing, but style wise, they are sufficient in themselves. To feminize your outfit do not forget to wear a little reminder of color. We choose a non-waisted dress with a trapeze shape and flared,  with polka dots or childish patterns. We can add a Peter Pan collar and cropped leather jacket or a burgundy color to go along with this fall/winter trend.


Retro rock it : for a rocker look, wear all white and black Creepers. With a 7 / 8 (burgundy of course) or a white skinny rolled upOn top wear a simple button up shirt and a leather jacket(studds or no studds). If you think it's too much, wear a vintage men's jean jacket that everyone seems to have. For hair : a VV Brown banana up do that you can wrap up in a red bandana. (this is my favoriteway to wear them)


Go all grungy : reuse an old pair of jean shorts to wear out and rip and wear it hig waisted. For mid-season you can wear tights that you can also wear out if you like but i think it's a bit too much. For a romantic touch, wear on top a block lace bodysuit.With this look, go all out on the  smoky eyes. To top it off steel your boyfriend's jacket (or your brother's if youre single ) to play it cold wave like the lead singer of The Cure or in this case those denim jackets. Black melon hats, if you have long hair complete the grunge feel of the outfit.


Masculin version:  abandon pinup high heels for a more sophisticated masculin look as seen in the D&G show for winter. Then wear a pair of wide pants or Bermuda shorts, a white shirt, an XXL jacket and suspenders. To brighten and girly up the boyish outfit you can accesorize with a colorful scarf or a long necklace. Keep girly make up like black sexy eyeliner to still have a little sexiness in the outfit.
Tell me how you like to wear your creepers or show me with a picture!
