Unknown photographer: An original American b/w press photograph of the English model Twiggy (Lesley Hornby; b. 1949). Back with notes, newspaper notice, owner's name (G.K. Austin, Burbank, California) and publication dates (May 10th 1973, July 5th 1976, December 6th 1976, December 26th 1978, December 31st 1978, January 2nd 1979). Photo size 25×20 cm. Frame size 43×33 cm.

With her delicate, boyish figure, her short, sleeky hair and her somewhat moody face Twiggy - who massively broadened the popularity of the miniskirt - became an important fashion icon in the late 1960s. In 1966, just 17 years old, she was named as Britain's “Face of the Year”.
