We caught up with peroxided British It Girl Agyness Deyn outside the Soho Grand last night, where, along with Mirabelle Marden and Leigh Lezark, she was waiting to party with Preen. “I’m very patriotic, and they’re very English,” Deyn said of designers Thea Bregazzi and Justin Thornton. “They’re so my style. When I started, I was very boyish-punkish. Now I think I’ve gone a bit lady punk.” The Preen bash was something of a last hurrah for Deyn before the shows kick into high gear. “I got back from my holidays a week ago,” she said wistfully. “So back to work yesterday. It’s like going back to school. You know when you forget how to write? It’s like, how do I catwalk?”—Alison Baenen
