twiggy was born lesley hornby in the fall of 1948. she was named "the face of 66" by the london daily express and by the tender age of 16 she was known internationally as the world's first super model. (sorry janice dickenson, but it's true.) she was known for her large eyes, long lashes, waif like thin frame and has been called the most famous model of all time. we love her for her high fashion mod look, her pixie hair cut and her drawn on false eyelashes. she later went on to become an award winning actor and singer. we love you twiggy!
