Nicknamed Twigs then Twiggy because of the make-up lines around her eyes that resembled twigs, Twiggy appeared on many covers of fashion magazines internationally during her brief four-year stint as a model in the 1960s, even appearing in a photo shoot with Patrick Macnee as Steed from The Avengers.
Twiggy grew her hair to look like her idol Jean Shrimpton but, ironically, it was when her hair was cropped short by Leonard of Mayfair at the House of Leonard that saw the start of Twiggy’s modelling career. She was instantly proclaimed to be “the face of 1966” and “the Queen of Mod”.
Before she left the fashion world to become an actress, Twiggy defined a whole new look and turned the industry on its head as a model with international name-recognition. With a long and successful career in fashion, theatre, film, and television, Lesley Lawson demonstrated there was life after modelling.
With films including “The Boyfriend” and “The Blues Brothers”, she’s not afraid to make fun of herself with appearances in “Absolutely Fabulous” alongside Joanna Lumley.
Since 2005 Twiggy has fronted Marks & Spencer’s clothing campaigns, continuing to inspire women of all ages.
Available in A4, A3, and A2 sizes to fit standard-size picture frames. Please note that black frame is not included – for a guide on choosing a frame size take a look here.
