Leslie Lawson, nicknamed Twiggy thanks to her slender frame, was a teenage British model that became the face of the mod generation in the mid-1960s, her iconic androgynous look characterized by her large eyes, long eyelashes, and short hair.

The story of the first supermodel, who came to epitomize "the Swinging Sixties". It tells of her rubbing shoulders with acting and musical greats, coping with fame, enduring marital disharmony and squaring up to the onset of middle age.

Got an import copy of this book online after waiting for years for some American publisher to pick it up. Given Twiggy's international fame, not sure why it was never published here except maybe it wasn't trashy enough (she never mentions her brief sexual relationship with gay choreographer Tommy Tune. A curious factoid Tune mentions in his own memoirs).
This autobiography, ghostwritten by Penelope Dening, has the fashion icon reviewing her life from childhood to the late 1990s, offering a refreshingly down-to-earth portrait of a celebrity who somehow managed to achieve world renown without succumbing to drug abuse, promiscuity, or other over-the-top behavior that we have come to associate with celebrity. (Her first husband's alcoholism is the book's sole concession to scandal. Instead we have a surprisingly insightful look at the highs and lows of fame and a lot of great anectdotes about various meet-and-greets with the rich and famous. She comes across as a nice person who just happens to have been one of the most famous models EVER.
Great behind the scenes stuff about her film and recording career. A must if you are a Twiggy fan, but perhaps nothing more than a pleasant, light read for others.

It is nice to read about an icon from the past. I only heard of her when I was growing up and now wanted to know just what the fuss was all about. The book shares the inside story about the woman who was in the center of the storm. It comes with pictures and they along with the story help fill in the blanks created by the media. In the end I learned to appreciate Twiggy all the more, beyond the image that was projected to all by the marketing and media folks.

This is a very well written book. I bought it for a college report and it came just as described by the seller. It arrived super early and was highly inexpensive (perfect for the college budget). I would purchase from this seller again!
