Cherub Cheeks

Let's all let out a collective "Awwww," at this picture of Laura Hollins, now known as Agyness Dean, at the tender age of 5.

Mother Lorraine, with Agyness, 17

When she was 14, Laura Hollins worked part-time working at The Village Chippy in Stubbins, Lancashire, serving deep-fried chips to the transfats lovin' customers in a rather unfashionable hairnet.

During her teenage punk phase while shmoking cigarettes and hanging with BFF Henry Holland, Agy would dye her cropped hair a "variety of colours and styles, including black, red, blonde, pink, shaved and chequerboard." I would totally kill to see Agy's scalp resemble a Van's checkered shoe, wow.

Funny to think that this girl will later become the face of Armani, Mulberry, shot by Steven Meisel for all things Vogue, touted as the next Kate Moss and Britain's shining beacon of supermodel light. Oh, and being known for that one phallus-inspired House of Holland slogan. Yeah.

ha, she now has the same hiarcut as her mum! I find Agyness's past so refreshing and interesting and I love that her and Henry were best friends back in the day and both kind of hit the big time in the same year.

I love this post, its nice to see a post about a model that isn't just all copied from style.com!
