In a decade dominated by youth, London fashion comes into mind when you talk about 60's - it swings. Who could forget the long legs and wide doe eyes of one of the world's first supermodels, Jean Shrimpton? Or the immortal designs of Mary Quant? Or most all, Twiggy's waifish and androgynous look that became iconic in the mod era?
Born as Leslie Hornby, Twiggy was a prominent British teenage model of her time. She rose to fame for her unconventional appearance - large eyes, long eyelashes, thin body frame, and short hair. She changed the modeling industry’s beauty ideal from curvy to thin. Twiggy hated the way she looked, but those flaws turned her into an international model, fashion icon and British "It" Girl.
