Twiggy was arguably the first supermodel. With her short hair, big eyes and tiny dresses, she epitomized the swinging ’60s.
To this day, she is considered a controversial figure for having popularized the waif look. She represented everything that was fun about mod London in the late ’60s.
She dressed in a way that was more appealing to women than to men. She favored straight sheath dresses that made her look even younger and more childlike than she already was. Her sex appeal came from her seeming obliviousness to the fact that she was attractive.
