Named by the ever-gentle British media as the "Most Annoying Person of 2008," hearts here and overseas have softened on the peroxide pixie Agyness Deyn of late. Thus we shivered with some trepidation when we read the latest, completely unconfirmed, rumor that Ms. Deyn (née Laura Hollins) may not only leave modeling behind, but may decamp from the Lower East Side of our fair city back to her native Britain. Already, Deyn has retired from the catwalk (with the notable exception of friend Henry Holland's runway shows) and, at 28, to position herself for a second career in acting or to explore other pursuits would only be good foresight. Moreover, the Mirror reports that Deyn may be moving in with her London-based current squeeze, rocker Miles Kane of the Last Shadow Puppets. But deprive New Yorkers of periodic Aggy sightings just when we had finally, fully fallen for her? Joni Mitchell wrote a song about this.
