Agyness Deyn gained notoriety for her edgy tomboy looks, but the British model is attempting to diversify her stylish portfolio. She's already appearing on the London stage, and now Agyness will design a collection for Dr. Martens. The collaboration follows on the heels of her appearance in the brand's Fall 2011 and Spring 2012 campaigns. The Agyness Deyn for Dr. Martens limited edition collection launches this fall featuring clothing, footwear, and accessories.

The ambitious model has always had an unconventional sense of style. Back in June 2009 at the CFDA Fashion Awards in New York City, Agyness combined a studded biker jacket with a sequined Anna Sui dress and Marc by Marc Jacobs boots. A few months later at the New York City premiere of Inglourious Basterds, Agyness toughened up the red carpet by partnering a Rocky Horror Picture Show T-shirt with French Connection's leather high waisted pencil skirt. She completed the look with a Lulu Guinness red lips clutch and Mechante of London Elektra Rose python heels.

Agyness sported a much darker mane for the ELLE Style Awards 2010 in London in February of that year. Her House of Holland Fall 2010 leather dress was accented with bright blue detailing. Agyness suited up for the New York premiere of 127 Hours in November 2010. Her tailored ensemble came from The Cast and was simply styled with boots by Comme des Garcons.

Several days later, Agyness was spotted leaving the London launch of her site, Naag.com, wearing Dr. Martens Carey 8 Eye boots. Her cherry red classic footwear were paired with an ASOS dark indigo denim jumpsuit. She's a regular on the runway when it comes to fashion week. In February 2011, Agyness was caught between the Fall 2011 shows decked out in a House of Holland Big Ben sweater under a vintage coat. She topped off the casual look with an Alexander Wang beanie.

She showed her stripes at the UK Style by French Connection Launch Party in Los Angeles last March when she teamed this sailor-themed top with a pair of wide-leg pants. That bright kelly green Proenza Schouler PS11 bag added a pop of color. Agyness hosted an event in July at Confederacy in Los Feliz to celebrate Rebecca Minkoff’s new in-store shop. Her Bonnie Cascade skirt and Circle Quilt Affair bag were both by the designer, while a white T-shirt rounded out the laid-back look.

Rebecca Minkoff selected Agyness to be the face of her Spring/Summer 2012 campaign, so it wasn't surprising to see the British star also wearing one of the designer's creations to the 15th Annual Accessories Council Excellence Awards in New York CIty in November. Her semi-sheer black gown was complemented by a standout yellow clutch. It was another number by the designer for W Magazine's 69th Annual Golden Globe Awards Celebration in Los Angeles this January. Agyness polished off her black Rumi dress with a yellow eyelet rocker and an Anita Ko spike bracelet.
