In her first short film, Mean to Me, British supermodel Agyness Deyn plays a 1930s courtesan faced with tough decisions in Manhattan. Her Zac Posen gowns, Mikimoto pearls and Guerlain makeup, however, are anything but hard knock. "I'm deeply inspired by 1930s cinema, and I wanted to create a story in which the female protagonist is a beautiful, glamorous woman with an intense, multi-faceted personality," said director Peter McGough. Deyn used his guidance to inspire her performance in the 13-minute film: "Seeing [Peter's] passion for the 1930s was like jumping into a time machine. He provided huge insight into the time," said the model. Mean to Me screens at NYC's Cheim & Reid gallery on March 4 before making the rounds at international film festivals.
