Agyness Deyn, formerly known as Laura Hollins, was born on February the 16th 1983. Spotted by Select whilst shopping in Kentish town with designer friend Henry Holland, it wasn’t long before the Lancashire lass was soaking up the bright lights and big heights of stardom. In May 2007 she featured on the cover of American Vogue alongside a host of shiny supermodels. The following year she guest edited The Icon Issue for i-D, fluttered her lashes on the cover of The Best of British Issue, March 2009, and somewhere in between had an entire issue dedicated to her: The Agyness Deyn Issue, May 2008. After falling in love with her platinum blonde pixie crop and riot grrrrl attitude, our Aggy was snapped up by everyone from Adidas to Armani, Burberry to Dr Martens. On top of being a modelling superstar, Agyness has also starred in her own music video alongside the band 5 O’Clock Heroes; played Aphrodite in the Clash of the Titans; and was the sultry voiceover for Rihanna’s We Found Love video, (‘’it’s like screaming and no one can hear..’’). In 2012, the model, singer, actress and all round babe married American actor Giovanni Ribisi, with whom she’s lived happily ever since.
