British Invasion: Twiggy

I am fascinated with the 60’s and the mod fashion style that encompassed that period. London , England was where the swinging sixties fashion developed. Mini dresses,bold designs,go-go boots…I’m so jealous! Nobody represents 60’s fashion better than Twiggy. She was basically the face of the 60’s, landing on every major magazine cover before she was even old enough to have a drink. A new tide turned, where the voluptuous figure that was attractive in the 50’s with such stars as Marilyn Monroe was old news, and the skinny mini was the new beauty. Kate Moss , when she first landed on the scene was compared to Twiggy. Not being the statuesque height other models were, she had that waifish look, and soon after it came back into favor in the modeling world. Here is a picture of both of them together.
