"At sixteen, I was a funny, skinny little thing, all eyelashes and legs. And then, suddenly people told me it was gorgeous. I thought they had gone mad."

Twiggy, an extremely successful model in the '60s, was more than just a magazine maven: She was a trendsetter, a daring dresser, and an icon in her own right.
Today she is an inspiration for the designers.  This fall the main trend is the 60s and the first thing that comes in your mind is, of course, Twiggy.
She was known for  her long, false eyelashes, exaggerated eye makeup, and close, cropped hairstyle.

 Her style:
Men's Accessories:
Twiggy wore thick, striped ties with waistcoats and men's hats with her mini skirts, usually with bare legs, but occasionally with fishnet tights.

Mini Skirt:
Mini skirt were seen as scandalous back then, but made its way into the magazines covers and advertising camaigns with the help of Twiggy.

Shift Dresses:
Quite often Twiggy displayed her incredibly slim frame in a simple shift dress, sometimes with a button placket in the front, and other times with an exaggerated collar (either a spread collar or a turtleneck style). Colors included baby pink, sunshine yellow, white, and red, along with variations on plaids, checks, and stripes. As a general rule, she didn't choose fussy styles, instead allowing her legs to take center stage.
