ah... to be young and bored

On wednesday I had a very good laugh, and I needed to share this witty article with you.

Agyness Deyn Is, Like, So Very Bored Right Now
By The Cajun Boy at Gawker.com

Agyness Deyn is, like, such a rebel. She's a model who is so unmodel-y. She, like, hates fashion! And she, like, lives in East Village and wears Converse sneakers and quirky hats and smoke Parliaments. She's, like, so unique!



But that's not all! Agyness Deyn wears suspenders and retro band T-shirts and and she, like, DJs and has a band and likes rocker dudes. She might try acting one day but, like, she doesn't know yet and all, but she's, like, "into stuff that really pushes the boundaries, raises the bar ... like, puts you out of your comfort zone," but for now she's, like, just hanging out downtown trying to figure it all out, so the New York Times wrote, like, a big feature on her where they said she is "the visual articulation of our culture's unspoken hopes and latent desires," whatever the hell that means.

"You know, even though I'm in fashion, I don't, like, do fashion," she said. "Fashion isn't me, even though I work in it. It's just materialistic stuff. I just want to do whatever makes me happy."

What makes Ms. Deyn happy?

"Like being totally conscious. Laughing is, like, my favorite thing to do. Being with friends, having fun ... being a bit daft."

It is hard to say if she eschews her supermodel role because she doesn't have the id or will to assert it or because she doesn't fully understand her own potential. But this, again, may be part of the construct of Ms. Deyn's media persona: she projects a cultivated lack of savvy, as if she were acting from a Buddhist compulsion to consciously guard herself from arriving at too intimate an understanding of such worldly filth.

Does she intend to spontaneously skip any Fashion Weeks, as she did last fall?

"I don't know," she said, airily. "I kind of make the decision a week before. I love doing it, but then sometimes I'm doing another project or something."


So yeah, Agyness Deyn isn't some vapid model bitch like so many of the others who are, like, all stupid and lazy and have had everyone kiss their boney asses all their lives because they're pretty. You see, with Agyness Deyn, it's, like, all just an act. She may, like, come across like a insufferably dim bulb, but she's, like, really the reincarnation of Ludwig van Beethoven, Albert Einstein and Thomas Edison all in the same androgynous body. And now you know.

I've never quite understood the big hoopla over this girl. She isn't remotely attractive to me, and seems about as mainstream and uninteresting as you can get. Glad to read this post!

Ha Ha! I love the varied opinions, or reactions to this post. I doubt it matters what age you are, to feel annoyed by the opinions of the flippant and celebrated it girls. The ones who take for granted everything that falls into heir lap. But it's always good to remember, youth is innocence. And in time, one gains from experience and more experience and then gain the ideas that eventually form a true identity.
However, I do believe, it's important to be accountable for what you say and do. Even if it is ridiculous. Because, people will find you just that. And then it will take more doing to change their opinion. People will be judged, and it's inevitable, when you live in the spotlight.

me? I suppose I like Aggy well enough. My husband keeps pulling out old photos of me that look just like her... cigarette in mouth, cropped short blond hair, and thick bushy dark eyebrows.

She's cute, and is having fun. Her look changes, but it's not new. It's been done. There really isn't anything edgy about her. But let her enjoy it. Each interpretation by an individual becomes their own. I think there are many more stunning models out there, more inventive ones, and certainly ones who are smart. From this interview, I would not think Agnes has shown her smart side. But in time...

give her time.

Thank you all for your thoughts!!!
