Agyness Deyn Comes Clean

Agyness Deyn has finally fessed up to something that I’ve been questioning for a while now. Well one, her name isn’t Agyness (she was born Laura Hollins), but that is all too common in the wonderful, hectic and crazy world of modeling. Models also tend to lie about their age, a lot. So basically, models are really pretty and really good liars, kidding… kind of.

The British beauty has told her story to the world via The Guardian, in which she tells the truth about her age. What’s interesting about this though is that models tend to add on a few years, whereas Deyn took a few off. She goes on to say “When I decided I would really do modeling I was like 18, and I think at the time that was quite old for a new face, so we knocked off a few years…”

We’re excited that the 29 year old model, yes 29, has finally confessed; especially with the recent issues surrounding underage models walking shows during fashion week in New York. We’re thinking the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA), who is strongly against using underage models, is loving this. It only goes to show that being a little older will still get you places, even in modeling.
