Here’s one celeb capsule collection that slipped by us—apparently model Agyness Deyn has designed a small range called I Am by Agyness Deyn (very to the point, Agy) for Barneys in Japan. Conceived as part of an in-house green brand, Deyn’s designs appear to run the gamut. There are organic-looking mesh tops with an artsy/edgy vibe, hip-hugging jersey dresses that go more basic, and some zippered capris, which seem more model-chic than anything else.
It’s definitely not what we would expect from Agyness with her wide hipster appeal. What do you think? Check out some more images after the jump. [StyleFrizz] Keep reading »
Modelina has a shot from Rochambeau’s upcoming fall 2010 lookbook featuring model Natasa Vojnovic in a double-role. Here, she plays both woman and man in a scene in which she makes out with herself. That’s some serious self-lovin’. [Modelina] Keep reading »
Not much is known about Donyale Luna, one of the first black supermodels, except that she was weird and beautiful. It is believed that Donyale created the story of her heritage from her imagination. Born Peggy Anne Freeman in Detroit in 1946 to parents Peggy and Nathaniel Freeman, Donyale was
hardly truthful rather creative about her background. Despite the evidence of her birth certificate, she said her biological father’s surname was Luna and her mother was of Native American, Mexican, and Egyptian descent. She even claimed one of her grandmothers was Irish and had married a black man. Perhaps Donyale created this story to escape her true upbringing — her father was reportedly abusive and was murdered when she was 18. Or maybe she thought the fashion industry would be more accepting of a more “exotic” beauty. Of course, we’ll never know, but one thing that we’re sure of is that Donyale was a pioneering force in modeling and remained strange throughout her short life. Keep reading »
Just last week Lady Gaga said, “I would rather die than have my fans not see me in a pair of high heels. I’d never give up my wigs and hats for anything.” It turns out the Ga will remove her crazy getups for something: deep vein thrombosis. The crew on her flight from London back to the U.S. this week thought the pop star was showing symptoms of the blood disorder when her legs began expanding inside of her black and yellow McQueen catsuit. Not only was Gaga forced to change out of her ensemble, but the suit was so hard to take off that she needed help undressing. Apparently Gaga was most peeved about stepping out of her blue Armadillo heels. We wonder what she changed into on the flight. Something tells us she doesn’t keep a pair of jeans and a t-shirt in her carry-on. [Marie Claire UK] Keep reading »
