Twiggy

Born Leslie Hornby, Twiggy was the world's first supermodel and the embodiment of the 60s look. She came to prominence when the Daily Express presented her as 'The 'Face of 1966', with photographs by Barry Lategan. During her career she was photographed by Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon, Melvin Sokolsky, Ronald Traeger, Bert Stern and Norman Parkinson amongst others. Twiggy also featured in several films including 'The Boyfriend' (1971) and in the Broadway musical 'My One and Only' (1983-4).
