A synonym for Fashion style in the 1960s - Twiggy

If the fashion designer is to sculpt the role of "style keywords" for the age, then the Fashion Icon is the radar for the performance of the era. No matter how time changes, these famous front wave glory has never been eliminated by the momentum of the post-wave, so in the #FashionIcon serial, we will visit the fashion indicators to determine the classic trajectory for different periods.
London, for the hegemony of the entire sixties, can be said to take our understanding of the decade into the arms of the city. The boys under the Baby Boomer were swaying in the Beatles' rock and roll, driving Vespa, which was full of lights; and the girls were all fascinated by “Twiggy”, which never left Fashion. Among the names of Icon status.

The slim, flat figure gave the model girl, Lesley Hornby, the nickname Twiggy. She is not only the "The One To Blame" at the beginning of the model slimming phenomenon, she captured the fashion magazines of the 1960s, and still has many replica stylists, she is irreplaceable for the 60s. A stroke, and in the hearts of all the people in the future, made a clear comment on the style of the time.




At this moment when Twiggy is about to reach its 70th birthday on the 19th of this month, we of course have to revisit the clothing style of the sixty indicators and sort out the fashion keywords she brought up.



1. Innocent baby makeup: thick mascara, thick double eyelids, pink lip gloss


Twiggy, who was 15 years old and dropped out of the world at the age of 18, was described by fashion magazine Vogue as a Fashion Icon with "heroin" general contagion, and her recognizable makeup is definitely a model for girls in the 1960s. The first lesson. Twiggy's charm is about a fresh sense of conflict: the childlike innocence looks like a rebellious, innocent big eyes of the doll but the short hair of the boy.

At that time, the Mod's girls who were on the streets of London had to pay more attention to the eye makeup products: the eyeliner of the corner of the eye was pulled down from the innocent posture, sometimes with a little water blue or silvery white eyeshadow, and thick and thick on the eyelids. Apply a fake double eyelid on the eyeliner, apply false eyelashes on the inside of the upper eyelid, and finally apply a thick mascara that emphasizes the lower eyelashes. In addition, the pink lips and cheeks, the raised eyebrows, and the top-down angle photography from the top to the bottom are also the little girls who will not forget when they imitate Twiggy.


What is the secret of Twiggy's innocent eyes? She told the media: "I have stacked three layers of false eyelashes." Girls, what do you want to do when you want to travel with the other half?




2. Length is not under the ear of the Blonde Bob-Hair


Short Bob-Hair sixties fashion is once again brought up the Mount of family (related stories click here ), because of the emergence of Twiggy and set off a wave of popular feeling against the golden boy of Bob-Hair. Twiggy always divides the bangs of short blond hair to one side, creating a fallen shape with a little boy's oily head, and Bob-Hair, which never exceeds the earlobe, makes Twiggy's neutral look even more Add a little elf is generally fresh and ghostly impression.



3. Mini skirt length and A-Line cut


Twiggy's doll-like image is all due to her ability to tailor the A-Line to a very flat body (especially the flat chest and hips). In the 1960s, the miniskirt set by designer Mary Quant was popular, and Twiggy performed the best of this length of dress. At that time, she repeatedly photographed the image of Mary Guan, who often performed silhouette from the chest. The A-Line doll dressing that was unfolded underneath also left a classic image record for the fashion trends of that era.

4. Plastic bright color accessories


After the war, the group of wealthy young people finally got rid of the more bleak atmosphere of the 40s and 50s because of the war, and they wore more bold and rich colors. With the increasing popularity of plastic technology in the 1960s, many accessories have been able to have light and unburdened weight in exaggerated shapes, and Twiggy is also the first to add such plastic accessories to many fashion films and her private clothes. All the round glasses, thick-frame glasses, and various geometric earrings are set off by her short hair.



5. Flat ballet shoes


Among the Twiggy dolls, flat or low-heeled ballet shoes are indispensable. These shoes often appear in bright patent leather, bringing Twiggy's outfits into the story of a little girl who just took classes from the ballet classroom, and these often don't appear as straps, but with buckles or ties. The shoes, like the student shoes, reminded her childish style.



6. Boylike posture


The less obvious feminine characteristics make Twiggy's more boyish posture not too awkward. She often wears Dandy Boy suit elements and her overalls in her styling. She also puts a lot of cool and handsome movements on the camera. The neutral image is presented in a more stereoscopic way.

Twiggy is not a nickname for her "the world's first supermodel", and is one of the few evergreen models still active under the spotlight. She is about to meet her 70th birthday and still maintains a slim body. At the age of sixty, she was held in London's National Portrait Gallery to hold a photo exhibition of her life classics "Twiggy: A Life in Photographs. And Twiggy's legend for the modern history of fashion will not disappear, we will probably continue to sing her logo style for centuries, and never tired.
