It’s not easy to carry off a shocking pink T-shirt and shorts combination with matching knee-high pop socks.  But if anyone can get away with it, it’s quirky British model Agyness Deyn.


The 26-year-old, who is known for her eccentric style, wore the wacky outfit as she filmed an advertisment in Manhattan with French Canadian model Gabriel Aubrey.

Deyn is no stranger to outlandish clothes, as she proved at the Coachella Music festival in California on Thursday, where she paid homage to the U.S. in a loosely belted stars and stripes dress.

She has recently returned to the States to pursue her modeling career after a stint catching up with friends in London.Despite splitting from Strokes guitarist Albert Hammond Junior last month, the model appeared happy and relaxed. She laughed and joked with a large group of friends including her close pal, fashion designer Henry Holland.

Deyn, who grew up close to the designer in Littleborough, near Manchester, has modeled in every show since Holland’s 2007 debut.
