Agyness Deyn, 31, is officially quitting the modeling industry. The British beauty started acting in 2012 and has been building up her career since then, appearing in movies such as “Pusher” and “Clash of the Titans.”

Deyn commented on her decision, saying, “I suppose I have stopped modeling officially. I’ve not done any for a good long while now. I think it was about four years ago when my feeling were changing towards the industry. I didn’t hate it, but I was yearning to do something different. I was on a gradient. I was something different.”

Deyn married actor Giovanni Ribisi, 39, in 2012.

Deyn first climbed to fame with Henry Holland in 2007. When Deyn entered the fashion realm, she had a bleach blonde pixie cut. However, the androgynous style icon says that she feels she has “grown up” a lot since then, feeling more sexy and confident in her femininity.  Recently she has expressed that her decision to quit modeling mostly comes from her disillusionment of the fashion industry.

In 2012, Deyn told The New Review, “Oh god, I loved it. Being 18 years old, from Manchester, and suddenly having this new world to explore – being able to travel, meet all these different people, and immerse myself in all these different cultures – was just so much fun.” She added, “I got spotted [by a modeling agency] and I’ve had this great chunk of time – 10 years – to find out what I really wanted to do, which is to act.” So it seems that Deyn had her fill with the modeling world.

Deyn modeled runway for topnotch companies such as Burberry and Giorgio Armani. She paired up with Dr. Martens apparel and footwear collection for three years. Her most current spring-summer line draws inspiration from sports wear and the Venice Beach surf scene. This line is her fourth and now last.

Deyn is currently debuting her own women’s apparel line called “Title A.” It is due for release early next month. It is feminine and sophisticated, showcasing her growth in the fashion industry. The prices of this line range from $95-$916. Deyn describes the women’s clothing as, “clean and simple, but quite punchy.”
