Playing the character called for a departure from Deyns trademark look. From the Ariel (the mermaid) wig to the matching red-tasselled pasties, its an about-face from the ethereal androgyny weve come to expect from the model. But thats the pointAgyness doesnt want to do Agyness on-screen.
When we started filming the director, Luis [Prieto], said to me, You know that I didnt know you were a model or well-known? she told us in the October 2011 issue. Hes Spanish and this is his first English film. It was really great to hear that because I felt, Wow, Ive earned this. I really got this part myself.
It may not be particularly high-fashion, but if you squint, there could be something sort of Louis Vuitton spring-summer 2011 about the get-up. Either way, we have a feeling that this picture will leave lots of previously Aggy-unawares wanting more.
