Modelina is excited to report that Agyness Deyn is “back.” Aggy is basking in the supermodel spotlight once again after what amounts to a fashion eternity: “her last runway appearance was during the Spring 2011 season” — that is last fall. Admittedly, I’ve missed the Deyn, but with only a few months in model hibernation, is this an official comeback?
Much credit is given to: a.) Aggy’s first editorial in British Vogue in “TWO years! [sic]“ in the May 2011 issue and b.) a “fresh pixie cut and dye job, calling to mind the Agyness of a few seasons ago.” I’m not sure how “fresh” this cut is when it recalls a past freshness, but fashion — contrary to popular belief — loves the familiar.
Deyn has been working, however…sort of…but with a cover of LOVE and an editorial here and there, it rarely compares to her utter ubiquity when she was an “It” model. Now there’s a new “It” model in town (or so I’m told) in Arizona Muse:
Before Muse, there was — and still is — Georgia May Jagger and Lara Stone and Karlie Kloss etc., etc. the catwalk goes on and on.
There will always be an “It” girl stomping down the block, but every supermodel has borne that label. And any supermodel worth her salt has “A Moment” — a return to the forefront, to stardom; hell, Naomi has “A Moment” whenever she assaults someone or smuggles in some blood diamonds. It’s all part of the game.
So don’t call it a comeback, Aggy’s been here for years.
