|My absolute favorite photo of Twiggy!|
|love this look on her!|
|What a dream!|
Interestingly, her nickname came from her friends calling her Twigs for her twig-like legs. Her characteristic look is defined by her boyish haircut and the bold eyelashes she used to draw on herself as hers were really short, and she would always do her own eyes. Makes me wonder if I would be able to pull it off, although I highly doubt those striking black eyelashes would work on me haha.
You can see it better on these pics:
Twiggy is just so fab and started her career at such an early age. She was raised in London and just when she was 16 a hairstylist cut her hair short and took head shots of her to hang in his salon. These were later seen by a fashion journalist who wrote for a newspaper. After meeting her she published an article in which she featured Twiggy as "The Face of 1966". This launched her career, she then moved to New York a year later and quickly became the world's first supermodel. Everyone loved her, and how can you not love Twiggy! She is so beautiful and shy and her accent is so cute, which I noticed when watching her biography on YouTube haha. Also, I found this video of her dancing and modeling, it's so freaking adorable haha you should definitely check it out!
Twiggy has had so much success throughout her life, you may have even seen her as a judge on America's Next Top Model (one of my fave shows). Twiggy did it all, from modeling to acting, dancing and singing! I must say she is now my favorite all-time fashion icon and I wish I had gotten to know her!
