Lesley Hornby was born September 19, 1949.
A 1960s pop icon known for her large eyes, long eyelashes, and thin build, she was the first teenage supermodel.
After sweeping England as “The Face of '66” when her modeling pictures were made public, “Twiggy” arrived in
New York in March 1967. It was believed that the Twiggy craze would die down within a month but she became an instant icon.
Twiggy changed the world of fashion with her short-haired androgynous look. Her style has dominated the runways for forty years. – Wikipedia
