Lesley Lawson, aka Twiggy, is a fashion icon from the swinging sixties. She is a celebrity of many trades, including modeling, acting, and singing and known to many as a fashion icon. Originally from England, Twiggy became an international star.

Many consider Twiggy to be the first supermodel and was known for her distinct look: She had short, blonde hair and big bright blue eyes. She put on extensive and complicated eye makeup that when done now, still says “Twiggy.” When she modeled, she had pouty lips and an apathetic look. And, it worked for her.

She modeled and wore short dresses, exotic prints, and boxy clothing that didn’t show many curves. It was the swinging sixties, and that was what was in style. Her modeling was seen all over the world during that time and she is now a symbol for the swinging sixties as a whole. And if you love Twiggy’s sixties style, you can find vintage clothing of the era at Rubber Soul Vintage  in San Diego, CA.
