Twiggy The scrawny modern supermodel originated with Twiggy, a British model, in 1967. Her real name was Lesley Hornby. She weighed just 90 pounds and had measurements of 31-23-32. Her 27-year-old boyfriend/manager, Nigel Davies, skilfully packaged Hornby as Twiggy, and within months she became the world's top fashion model, appearing in Vogue and Elle magazines before taking New York by storm. Twiggy's cropped haircut (shorter than most boys wore at the time) made her something of an androgynous figure. Her trademark was to paint eyelashes on her lower lids. These became known as Twiggies. Over the years, Twiggy's exceedingly slim figure was blamed for the rise in anorexia cases. Depite her fame, Twiggy remained humble and true to her East London roots. She once told Life Magazine, 'I know I'm not beautiful or glam. But with me funny face, me funny skirts, and me funny accent, somehow it combined to work out just lovely.'

She may have become the world's top fashion model, but I prefer the almost rubinesque type of woman any day. Good example..Sophia Loren, now there's a truly beautiful woman.

I with you, Guido! Twiggy can't be held responsible for anorexia, but her influence is still dictating what is considered beautiful.

Uggh,, I just had to give this out.

I always thought models were flat chested so as not to stretch fabrics.

How naieve. The fashion industry has always been lead by gays who wanted models to look like young boys.
Twiggy case in example.

Sohia Loren aha! psst, I've seen her naked. Who cares bout Liz Taylor

Italia amore!!
