Um, can you repeat the question?

Flipping through the latest Glamour last night, I came across their list of the 50 Most Glamorous Women of the Year. Many choices, I agreed with: Kate Hudson, Posh, Annette Bening, Carla Bruni, Diane von Furstenburg. But then at #43 came along this thing:


Agyness Deyn. Her name has been everywhere for the last year, and I won't take the time now to vent about how much the spelling of her first name makes me want to say "Aggie-ness," and how annoying that sounds, and how much I hate reading her name for that reason. Anyway, Simon Doonan (creative director at Barney's, I believe, but I'm too lazy to look it up. But I do know he's my favorite voice of reason on fashion police-type countdown shows) said she has "the best personal style of anyone."

Now, I suppose she can't always look like a drunk contortionist, if she's become such a big model. But below is the one picture I could find in which she looks pretty. Sure, she usually looks edgy, or avant-garde, or something, but where is the line drawn between creative and crazy?

I just don't get it.

Hurrah - someone else doesn't get the Agnyess Deyn thing (that isn't her real name by the way) - I get fed up of British Vogue's obesssion with 'edginess'!!
