The image perplexed me and rubbed me the wrong way. While Agyness Deyn definitely does have and interesting look I don’t think that she was the one to portray Michael Jackson. Like Rae Holliday over at Stuff Fly People Like said why not have someone truly iconic like Naomi Campbell memorialize Michael?  I mean the woman did appear in his Remember The Time music video so there is a connection there.

Furthermore, I don’t even think she did the man justice. She looks like a girl having a good laugh not like a model on the job.

What do you think of the Agyness Deyn spread?
