Through The Guardian’s revealing profile, not only did UK supermodel Agyness Deyn talk about her road of getting into the fashion industry and how she got to the catwalk stage but she also revealed that she’s actually 29 and not 23 as often reported.
She stated: “No, when I decided I would really do modelling 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. But it was my birthday last week, and Henry [Holland, her designer friend] was saying how old would you have been? Cos it got really complicated – when personal and work collide – and Henry was like: ‘But it looks like I started being friends with you when you were four or something!’”
For awhile people have been speculating that Deyn was older than what she said, so it didn’t come as much of a shock. Fortunately for her, she was able to pass the age standard and become one of the great faces in the fashion industry today.
