First British supermodel, first waif, launched the pixie cut around the world and became an international sensation arriving in New York with paparazzi flashes blinding her. The androgynous look she encapsulated helped change the face of fashion forever creating more A line dresses with collars and neckties (she had her own line of them at one point) and inspired the military trends we see today. She went on to become an award winning actress and inspiring activist, Twiggy=serious icon.
"The Cockney Kid with a face to launch a thousand shapes ... and she's only 16! - The Daily Express, 23 February 1966.
P.S. To all those in SoCal come by the Madewell store at South Coast Plaza for their Denim After Dark event, my friends and I are on the Style Panel, it should be loads of fun!
