Loly Icon: Twiggy ♥

If you want to know what multi-tasking really means...let's talk about TWIGGY! 

Originally, her name is Lesley Lawson, but she was called Twiggy by her boyfriend for her skinny complextion and the name sticked! As you all know she was the 60's fashion icon (the real deal). A bit short for a model, Twiggy risked going to the right people and it took one hair cut (totally revolutionized fashion), a portrait photo and an interview for an english newspaper to make her the FIRST international fashion model! Before she knew it she went by Paris to go on to USA and pose for Vogue, all this in 1 year! 

We just love her style, it has survived through decades!  Each time I look at her photos I just die for her beautiful eyes, here miniskirts and dresses and, of course girls, those amazing eyelashes! 


                                                          

Not only did she model, but Twiggy acted in several films, one which earned her a Golden Globe for best actress. Through the 70's she also recorded a few albums. And all this while she stared her FAMILY! Her daughter was born from her first marriage, unfortunately her husband passed away in 83.  Five years later she married Leigh Lawson, with whom she lives in London up till today! 

Recently retired from the catwalks, Twiggy has participated as a jugde in several America's Next Top Model series. At Loly we just admire the courage that Twiggy has, together with a bit of luck, struggle and opportunity she made it pretty far! And this is what I want for all my Loly girls out there! 

New endings are new beginnings, so let's get out there and rock this world!
