Agyness Deyn (born Laura Hollins on 16 February 1983) is an English model. In 2008, Deyn was hailed as “the fashion industry’s next great supermodel” and has been called an “ambassador of British youth culture.”
Agyness Deyn is from Failsworth in Greater Manchester. She is the second of three children. Her mother Lorraine is a nurse. She attended All Saints RC High School and Bacup and Rawtenstall Grammar School and Sixth Form in Waterfoot, Rossendale. Deyn’s working life started serving cod, chips and mushy peas part-time at 17, which she did in Ramsbottom. In 1999, she won the Rossendale Free Press “Face of ’99″ competition, aged just 16. She left home for London, working in a burger joint during the day and a bar at night but she admits: “I tried to make cocktails but it didn’t quite work.” During this time she says she was also at college in Hull, studying drama and music. She was signed up by Models 1 when she visited the agency, slammed down a portfolio and refused to leave until she was signed. [Wiki]
