Agyness Deyn has ugly days! Model reveals she doesn't always feel so super (and tells why she shaved her head)
As one of the world's most sought-after models, it's hard to believe that Agyness Deyn ever has an off day.
But the Manchester-born runway star has confessed she doesn't always feel top notch.
Despite her multi-million pound visage and enviably slender physique, when quizzed on whether she ever has ugly days, Agy surprisingly admitted that she did.
Agyness Deyn: 'I feel ugly sometimes (but only when I've been on a flight all night)'
But before the less genetically blessed among us get too excited, she qualified that statement by saying it was only when she'd had minimal sleep on a longhaul flight.
'I do! When I've had two hours' sleep and I've just got off a flight and I'm like, “who am I”' she told Grazia in an exclusive video interview.
In the interview, filmed as part of Grazia's Big Fashion Issue, to be released on Tuesday during London Fashion Week, Agyness admits that she's not a natural glamourpuss, and in fact claims her shaved head was the best hairstyle she'd ever had.
'Having a skinhead, it was the easiest,' she said. 'You just wash and go, no hairdryers or brushes needed.'
Agyness, who is currently playing a feisty stripper in a remake of Nicholas Winding Refn's cult 1996 movie Pusher, says that while she loves the modelling industry, sometimes the travelling gets her down.
'It's the best part but also the hardest part of modelling,' she says.
'You're just away from your friends and family all the time'
Indeed, she still finds time to visit her Mancunian pals, saying that despite having relocated to the trendy New
York borough of Williamsburg some years ago, she still
misses her home city of Manchester.

When she does come back to the UK, the model-turned-actress always finds time
to visit her home city of Manchester in the North West.
'I do miss Manchester. I suppose that's where I grew up, and I still gravitate towards that part of the country,' she says.
When she's in London, she finds time to stroll through the city's parks, and loves walking past Buckingham Palace.
Kate and Wills in their love for London's cycle scheme, Agyness says
she often speeds around the capital on Boris bikes.
She's an old pro on the catwalk now, having walked for Anna Sui, Burberry and, of course, close pal Henry Holland. But Agyness admits her seemingly natural confidence didn't come immediately.
'When I first started modelling, as I was walking down the catwalk I just thought please don't fall over, please don't fall over, please don't fall over!'
