Iconic Woman of Style: Twiggy

Twiggy, born Leslie Hornby is considered to be one of the world's first international supermodels. She defines the playful, mod style of the 1960's, with her short hair, thin figure and iconic eyelashes. In the 1970's she embarked on a new career path, and became an award winning actress and singer. Today she is still on the forefront of the fashion and entertainment world, with her clothing line Twiggy London, and her latest album Romatically Yours. Twiggy is a true icon that is still inspiring us today.

Graphic designs and menswear inspired accessories such as ties and hats pair perfectly with a classic mini. Add in a pair loafers or boots to complete your look.

Twiggy's 1960's makeup look can be achieved easily. Dust on a light foundation, pink cheeks, and sheer eyeshadow. Add bold liner, and of course extra thick lashes and you are set with a classic 60's look.

Bright colors and geometric shapes of vintage mod jewelry are the perfect addition to stand out from the crowd and create a classic look that will be all your own. Be adventurous while mixing colors and patters for a classic look with a mordern twist.
