When we think of the mid-60s London Youthquake movement, far and few faces come to mind more than the legendary Leslie Hornby, better known as Twiggy.
Recognized by her giant eyes—accentuated with big, thick lashes—boyish haircut, and a thin, twig-like frame, Twiggy was the model of the mod moment, covering Vogue and Elle amongst every other major glossy mag of her time. She later moved on to acting, appearing on both television and in film, even serving as a judge on America’s Next Top Model later on. Her fresh-faced, youthful look and forward fashion sense are still relevant today, almost 50 years later. Of course, that should be expected of someone who inspired her very own Barbie doll and a line of dresses.
Today, Twiggy turns 67. In honor of her birthday, we rounded up 15 photos that prove her fashion and beauty looks are iconic, even in 2016.
