Twiggy Lawson (née Lesley Hornby) (1949-), Model and actress

Sitter in 30 portraits
Launched by a famous little-boy haircut, shaped by Leonard and coloured by Daniel Galvin, Twiggy was the world's first supermodel. As both 'Woman of the Year' and The 'Face of 1966', Twiggy (born Lesley Hornby) was the embodiment of the 60s look. Her career developed when she appeared in Ken Russell's film The Boyfriend (1971) and in the Broadway musical My One and Only (1983-4). Twiggy continues with her blonde look and makes regular appearances in magazines and on television.
