60's Inspiration Du Jour 5.4.09

TWIGGY!
My favorite british super model from the 60's
"Twiggy (born Lesley Hornby; 19 September 1949) is an English model, actress, and singer, now also known by her married name of Twiggy Lawson. In the 1960s, at 16, she became the first prominent teenage model. She was known for her large eyes, long eyelashes, and thin build, and is regarded as one of the most famous models of all time."

AMy Updated Modern version for everyday!
