Dress Like an Icon...Twiggy
With her waif like figure, boyish hair cut and striking eye lashes, Twiggy created an image that would epitomise an era. She became the idol for millions of teenage girls of the sixties revolution. By the age of 17, Twiggy was one of the most famous faces on the planet: her photograph was even encased in a time capsule and sent into space. By this time in the sixties, Twiggy had already become a household name across the globe, an icon whose image graced the covers of Vogue, Tatler and even her own American publication Her Mod, Mod Teen World.
She was once described as "the Cockney Kid with a face to launch a thousand shapes... And she's only 16!" If you've ever considered trying your hand at the Twiggy, look no further for help...
Twiggy is the second last Icon that I've created a look for, so I'll be out of looks after next week. Are there any Icons you'd like to see me create a look for? I need ideas!
