Twiggy aka Lesley Hornby was born September 19th, 1949. She is known as an English model, actress, and singer. At 16, she became the first stand out British teenage model. Twiggy’s look centered on three qualities: her stick thin figure, a boyishly short haircut[6] and strikingly dark eyelashes. In 1966, she was named “The Face of 1966” by the Daily Express and she was voted British Woman of the Year. By 1967, Twiggy had modeled in France, Japan, and the U.S., and also appeared on covers of many different magazines, some including Vogue and The Tatler. By then she was known worldwide. She has hosted her own series, Twiggy's People, and also appeared as a judge on the reality show America's Next Top Model. Twiggy is best remembered as one of the first international supermodels and a fashion icon of the 1960s and 70s. Her hairdresser boyfriend, Nigel Davies, became her manager, changed his name to Justin de Villeneuve, and persuaded her to change her name to Twiggy, which came from her childhood nickname, twigs.
