When Saint Laurent showed its spring 2016 collection, we were delighted by two things: designer Hedi Slimane's "grunge tiara" and a rare runway appearance by Agyness Deyn, who, in 2010, switched career gears from modeling to acting — also surprising us with a few design stints here and there. Though clearly she doesn't object entirely to having her picture taken.
When British magazine Wonderland unveiled the five covers of its "Horror Issue" on Monday, we were hit with déjà vu: Deyn has made a rare modeling appearance in none other than Saint Laurent — "grunge tiara" included. (Up-and-coming model Peyton Knight also snagged her own cover for the magazine's winter issue.)
It's been more than two years since we last saw Deyn on the front of a glossy. She appeared on InStyle UK's March 2013 cover sporting her signature blonde pixie cut, which has since grown long and "bronde." In the magazine, she talked about her surprise marriage to actor Giovanni Ribisi in June 2012, which reportedly came to an end last week. According to Daily Mail, Ribisi filed for divorce citing "irreconcilable differences" at the beginning of the year. Deyn is currently promoting her leading role in "Sunset Song," a film adaption of the Scottish author Lewis Grassic Gibbon's 1932 novel, which debuts in the UK on Dec. 4.
In the magazine's interview, Deyn also discusses her return to the fashion world — including walking the runway for Saint Laurent last October. "It's funny, because obviously back in the day you know everyone — you know all the girls. But the girls there were half my age," she said. "It sounds like I'm really old, but I always look back with a fondness for that age — your late teens to early twenties. It was fun to watch the new generation and how alive and inspiring and spunky they all are. You forget that: when you get older, you just chill out a bit more."
The "Horror Issue" of Wonderland is expected to be on newsstands soon. In the meantime, you can watch the magazine's fashion film below featuring the one and only Aggy.
This post has been updated to include details on Deyn's recent divorce from Giovanni Ribisi.
