James Franco x Agyness Deyn

Don't worry, it's not what you think!

Ladies, the important thing to know is that there's no need to panic. We haven't become a celebrity gossip magazine, and we're not here to inform you that Oyster's biggest crush has a new ladyfriend rather that he's picked up a camera and taken a few shots of ex-It Girl Agyness Deyn for Elle magazine.

The shoot, entitled 'Chateau Dreams', marks Franco's first foray into the world of fashion photography. Don't waste your time breathily posing the question, "Is there anything that man can't do?" because, if the perfectly composed images of Deyn, Natalia Bonifacci and Imogen Poots are anything to go by, the answer is clearly a resounding no.

Franco's fashion editorial is yet another extension of the actor/artist's fascination with Hollywood heart-throb James Dean, an obsession that began when he took the illustrious role of the screen legend in the 2001 biopic. 'Chateau Dreams' is a taster of Franco's Rebel exhibition at the Venice Biennale, a mixed-media showcase that looks at the significant influence of Dean's Rebel Without a Cause on American culture.
