^ Twiggy's 'real' name is Lesley Hornby. she coined the name twiggy as a nickname from villeneuve i believe who called her that cos her legs were like twigs!

I don't necessarily like the old waif look, but Twiggy's style was definetely a part of history. She has aged well, too.

le sigh. I suppose I'll have to stick to the Edie look, which is basically loading it on.

I attempted it too! I discovered a love for white eyeliner above bottom lashes, too. Thought I'd post a pic of how one eye came out..haha
