Lesley Lawson (née Hornby; born 19 September 1949) is an English
model, actress, and singer widely known by the nickname Twiggy. She
was a British cultural icon and a prominent teenage model in swinging
Twiggy was initially known for her thin build (thus her nickname) and
her androgynous look consisting of big eyes, long eyelashes, and short
hair. In 1966, she was named "The Face of 1966" by the Daily
Express and voted British Woman of the Year. By 1967, she had
modelled in France, Japan, and the US, and had landed on the covers of
Vogue and The Tatler. Her fame had spread worldwide.
Twiggy enjoyed a successful career as a screen,
stage, and television actress. Her role in The Boy Friend (1971)
brought her two Golden Globe Awards. She has hosted her own series
Twiggy's People, in which she interviewed celebrities; she also
appeared as a judge on the reality show America's Next Top Model. Her
Twiggy in Black and White entered the best-seller
lists. Since 2005, she has modelled for Marks and Spencer, most
recently to promote their recent rebranding, appearing in television
advertisements and print media, alongside Myleene Klass, Erin
O'Connor, Lily Cole, and others. In 2012, she worked alongside
Marks & Spencer's designers to launch an exclusive clothing
collection for the M&S Woman range.

She was born Lesley Hornby on 19 September 1949, and was brought up in
Neasden (then in Middlesex, now a suburb of north-west London). She
was the third daughter of Nellie Lydia (née Reeman), a factory worker
for a printing firm, and William Norman Hornby, a master carpenter and
joiner from Lancashire. Her maternal grandfather was Jewish.
Their first daughter, Shirley, had been born fifteen years earlier;
their second, Vivien, had been born seven years earlier.
Twiggy's mother taught her to sew from an early age. She used this
skill to make her own clothing. She attended the Brondesbury and
Kilburn High School in Salusbury Road, London.
Twiggy's great great grandmother, Grace Meadows, then living under her
maiden name Grace Gillies, died in a stampede of excitable shoppers at
a bargain sale at Messrs McIllroys store in Mare Street in Hackney in
1897. This event made the news at the time.
Twiggy married American actor
Michael Witney in 1977. Their daughter,
Carly, was born in 1978. They were married until his death in 1983
from a heart attack.
Leigh Lawson in 1984. In 1988,
they worked on the film Madame Sousatzka, and married that year in Sag
Harbor, Long Island. Lawson adopted Twiggy's daughter, who took his
surname. The couple reside in London, and also own a home in
On Twiggy's official website, she states she is a supporter of breast
cancer research, animal welfare and anti-fur campaigns. She was one
of the celebrities, including Tom Hiddleston, Jo Brand, E. L. James
and Rachel Riley, to design and sign her own card for the UK-based
charity Thomas Coram Foundation for Children. The campaign was
launched by crafting company Stampin' Up! UK and the cards were
auctioned off on eBay during May 2014.
Modelling career (1965–70)
Twiggy is best remembered as one of the first international
supermodels and a fashion icon of the 1960s. Her greatest
influence is Jean Shrimpton, whom
Twiggy considers to be
the world's first supermodel.
Twiggy has also been described as
the successor to Shrimpton. In January 1966, young
Lesley Hornby had her hair coloured and cut short in
London at Leonard
of Mayfair, owned by celebrity hairdresser Leonard. The hair
stylist was looking for models on whom to try out his new crop haircut
and he styled her hair in preparation for a few test head shots. A
Barry Lategan took several photos for
Leonard, which the hairdresser hung in his salon. Deirdre McSharry, a
fashion journalist from the Daily Express, saw the images and asked to
meet the young girl. McSharry arranged to have more photos taken.
A few weeks later the publication featured an article and images of
Hornby, declaring her "The Face of '66". In it, the copy read:
"The Cockney kid with a face to launch a thousand shapes... and she's
Hornby's career quickly took off. She was short for a model at
5'6" (167 cm), weighed eight stone (51 kg; 112 lbs) and
had a 31-23-32 figure, "with a new kind of streamlined, androgynous
sex appeal" Her hairdresser boyfriend, Nigel Davies, became her
manager, changed his name to Justin de Villeneuve, and persuaded her
to change her name to
Twiggy (from "Twigs", her childhood
nickname). De Villeneuve credits himself for Twiggy's discovery
and her modelling success, and his version of events is often quoted
in other biographies. In her 1998 book
Twiggy In Black and White, she
says that she met Justin through his brother, when she worked as a
Saturday girl at a hairdressers in London. This is where she began to
see the models in the magazines, but never thought she could do
something like that.
Jean Shrimpton was her idol so she grew her hair
long to look like her, before having to have it cut off for her
headshots by Barry Lategan. Ten years her senior, De
Villeneuve managed her lucrative career for seven years, overseeing
her finances and enterprises during her heyday as a model.
Twiggy was soon seen in all the leading fashion magazines, commanding
fees of £80 an-hour, bringing out her own line of clothes called
Twiggy Dresses" in 1967, and taking the fashion world by
storm. "I hated what I looked like," she said once, "so I thought
everyone had gone stark raving mad." Twiggy's look centred on
three qualities: her stick-thin figure, a boyishly short haircut
and strikingly dark eyelashes. Describing how she obtained her
prominent eyelashes, now known as Twiggy's, she said, "Back then I was
layering three pairs of false eyelashes over my own and would paint
extra 'twigs' on my skin underneath."
Twiggy in 1967, at the height of her modelling career, showing the
look that made her famous
One month after the
Daily Express article,
Twiggy posed for her first
shoot for Vogue. A year later, she had appeared in 13 separate fashion
shoots in international Vogue editions.
Twiggy arrived in New York in March 1967 at Kennedy Airport, an event
covered by the press. The New Yorker, Life and
Twiggy "phenomenon" in 1967, with the New Yorker devoting
nearly 100 pages to the subject." That year she became an
international sensation, modelling in France,
Japan and America,
and landing the cover of Paris Vogue in May, the cover of US Vogue
three times, in April, July and November, and the cover of British
Vogue in October. In 1967, an editorial on page 63 of the edition
of 15 March of Vogue described her as an "extravaganza that makes the
look of the sixties"
Twiggy was, according to feminist critic Linda
Delibero, "the most visible commodity Britain produced that year, and
[America] generously complied with the hype, scarfing up skinny little
Twiggy lunch boxes,
Twiggy lashes, an assortment of
The Metropolitan Museum of Art's 2009 catalogue of Style: Model as
Muse Embodying Fashion stated:
Twiggy's adolescent physique was the perfect frame for the androgynous
styles that began to emerge in the 1960s. The trend was manifested in
a number of templates: sweet A-line dresses with collars and neckties,
suits and dresses that took their details from military uniforms, or,
in the case of Yves Saint Laurent, an explicit transposition of the
male tuxedo to women. Simultaneously, under the rubric of "unisex",
designs that were minimalistic, including Nehru suits and space-agey
jumpsuits, were proposed by designers such as
Pierre Cardin and Andre
Courreges, and, most famously in the U.S.A., by Rudi Gernreich.
Twiggy has been photographed by such noted photographers as Cecil
Beaton, Richard Avedon, Melvin Sokolsky, Ronald Traeger, Bert Stern,
Annie Leibovitz and Steven Meisel.
Twiggy and the magazines featuring her image polarised critics from
the start. Her boyishly thin image was criticised as, and is still
blamed for, promoting an "unhealthy" body ideal for women.
Twiggy came along at a time when teen-age spending power was never
greater," said Su Dalgleish, fashion correspondent for the Daily Mail.
"With that underdeveloped, boyish figure, she is an idol to the 14-
and 15-year-old kids. She makes virtue of all the terrible things of
gawky, miserable adolescence." At the height of her fame, Mark
Cohen, president of
Leeds Women's shop, had an even harsher view: "Her
legs remind me of two painted worms." Yet
Twiggy had her supporters.
Diana Vreeland of Vogue stated, "She's no flash in the pan. She is the
mini-girl in the mini-era. She's delicious looking." In recent
Twiggy has spoken out against the trend of waif-thin models,
explaining that her own thin weight as a teenager was natural: "I was
very skinny, but that was just my natural build. I always ate sensibly
– being thin was in my genes."
On 10 December 1969, despite being 20 years old, she was selected as
the subject for one of the first editions produced by Thames
Television of the television series This Is Your Life.
Stage, film, television and singing career
After four years of modelling,
Twiggy retired in 1970, stating "You
can't be a clothes hanger for your entire life!" She broke off
with Justin de Villeneuve, who had been overseeing her business
affairs since 1966, and released him from his duties as her manager,
claiming in later years that "her career had more to do with that
famous picture of her with those funny painted eyelashes, which
appeared in the
Daily Express under the headline 'The Face of
'66' " than with his promotional efforts.
She has stated several times that she is only really remembered for
her modelling career although it was "only a short part of my life".
She began to develop a film interest through her weekly visits to Ken
Russell's house; they would watch old films together, which included
people like Greta Garbo,
Clark Gable and other Hollywood actors and
actresses. This began to give
Twiggy a new outlook on the way she
dressed and the way she wore her hair, which she wore in a beret and
wore longer skirts and flowers as the hippie look was beginning to
take over London. Ken and
Twiggy would work on a film together called
The Boy Friend after watching a performance of the original musical,
staged by Ken's mother's amateur dramatics group.
Twiggy then embarked on an award-winning acting and singing career,
starring in a variety of roles on stage and screen, and recording
albums. In 1971, she made her film debut as an extra in Ken Russell's
The Devils. The same year, she performed her first leading role in
features as Polly Browne in Ken Russell's adaptation of Sandy Wilson's
pastiche of 1920s hit musicals, The Boy Friend. This marked her
initial collaboration with Tommy Tune, and won her two Golden Globe
Awards in 1972 (New Star of the Year – Actress and Best Actress in a
Musical or Comedy). Also in 1971,
Twiggy released the single "Zoo de
Zoo Zong", written by Roger Cook and Roger Greenaway, and credited to
Twiggy and Friends. In 1974, she made her West End stage debut in
Cinderella; made a second feature, the thriller W (co-starring with
her future husband Michael Witney); and hosted her own British
television series, Twiggs (later renamed Twiggy).
In 1973, she appeared with
David Bowie on the cover of his seventh
album, Pin Ups. which entered the UK chart on 3 November 1973 and
stayed there for 21 weeks, peaking at No. 1. In October 1975, she sang
at the live performance of Roger Glover's The Butterfly Ball and the
Grasshopper's Feast album at the
Royal Albert Hall
Royal Albert Hall in London. The
concert was filmed and produced by Tony Klinger and released to
cinemas in 1976.
In November 1976 she made an appearance on The Muppet Show, in which
she sang "In My Life", a
Beatles song. In 1976,
Twiggy signed to
Mercury Records and released the albums
Twiggy and Please Get My Name
Right, discs that contained both pop and country tunes.
very well, peaking on the UK charts at No. 33, and gave
silver disc for good sales. The album contains Twiggy's top-twenty hit
single, "Here I Go Again". "Please Get My Name Right" made it to No.
35 in 1977. A single "A Woman in Love" failed to chart for
1977, but was a hit for the
Three Degrees in 1978.
In 1978, the television distribution arm of American International
Pictures, in an effort to gain additional syndication value in the US
to the LWT rock music series Supersonic, repackaged the musical
Twiggy replacing Mike Mansfield's introductions. The
new series was titled Twiggy's Jukebox, and ran in most of the major
television markets in the US during the 1978–79 TV season.
Twiggy herself had performed "Here I Go Again" and
"Vanilla Olay" on Supersonic in September 1976, and these performances
were included in the refurbished programme. After the initial season,
Twiggy left the series, and American International Television
continued Jukebox with
Britt Ekland as host, using standard music
videos rather than clips from Supersonic. She appeared in "There Goes
the Bride" with
Tom Smothers in 1979.
Twiggy made a cameo appearance in The Blues Brothers. She
starred as Eliza Doolittle in 1981 opposite
Robert Powell in the
Yorkshire TV production of Pygmalion. In 1983 she made her Broadway
debut in the musical, My One and Only, starring and co-staged by Tommy
Tune, for which she earned a Tony nomination. She played opposite
Robin Williams in the 1986 comedy Club Paradise. In 1987, she played a
vaudeville performer in the British television special The Little
Match Girl, and in 1988 she appeared in a supporting role in Madame
Sousatzka opposite second husband Leigh Lawson. In 1989, she was cast
as Hannah Chaplin, mother to Charles, in the British television movie
Young Charlie Chaplin, aired in the United States on PBS' WonderWorks.
In 1991, she co-starred in her first American network dramatic
television series, the short-lived CBS sitcom Princesses. Of eight
episodes completed, only five aired. (Princesses co-star, Fran
Drescher, later spent some time with
Twiggy and her family in England
while developing Drescher's hit series The Nanny, even modelling
Maxwell Sheffield on Twiggy's husband Leigh Lawson.)
In 1993, she appeared alongside
Mark Hamill in the short segment "Eye"
from the made-for-cable horror anthology, Body Bags.
Twiggy acted in the
Chichester Festival Theatre
Chichester Festival Theatre revival of
Noël Coward's Blithe Spirit. A year later, she played Gertrude
Lawrence in the biographical stage revue Noel and Gertie at Bay Street
Theatre in Sag Harbor, Long Island. In 1999, she returned to the New
York stage in an off-Broadway production If Love Were All, a revised
version of Noel and Gertie, written and directed by Leigh Lawson; what
set this edition apart were its tap numbers in period style. She
starred as Gertrude Lawrence opposite Harry Groener's Noël Coward.
Twiggy co-hosted the British magazine programme This Morning.
In 2003, she released another album, Midnight Blue. Seventeen of the
CD's 20 tracks had previously unreleased material from 1982–1990,
including a duet with Leo Sayer, "Save the Last Dance for Me", and a
cover of the Stones' "Ruby Tuesday". Two of the tracks ("Feel Emotion"
and "Diamond") had been issued as single in the mid-1980s. In 2005,
she joined the cast of the television show America's Next Top Model
for Cycles 5–9 as one of four judges, and a year later, she appeared
on the cover of the "Icons" issue of Swindle magazine. She also
returned to modelling, fronting a major television, press and
billboard campaign for Marks & Spencer, the British
department-store chain. Her involvement in the advertising campaign
has been credited for reviving Marks and Spencer's fortunes. In
2006, she portrayed herself as a nineteen-year-old in the radio play
Twiggy for BBC Radio 4's Afternoon Play series. She did
not return to
America's Next Top Model
America's Next Top Model in its tenth season due to
scheduling conflicts. Her replacement was model Paulina
Also in 2007, Sepia Records released a previously shelved album that
Twiggy recorded in 1979, produced by
Donna Summer and Juergen Koppers.
Heaven in My Eyes ["Discotheque"] contains the eight original tracks
due to be released, plus four remixes by "The OUTpsiDER". The album
was also made available on iTunes. She is signed to
Models 1. In 2008, she supported the "Fashion Targets Breast Cancer"
campaign in support of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, alongside fellow
celebrities –comedian Alan Carr, singer Natalie Imbruglia,
Anna Friel and DJ & presenter Edith Bowman.
In the summer of 2009, beauty company Olay debuted its "Definity Eye
Cream" campaign depicting Twiggy. Accusations of airbrushing created a
stir with the media and public. A website campaign set up by Jo
Swinson, the Scottish Liberal Democrat MP, attracted 700 individual
complaints. Procter & Gamble admitted to minor retouching and
replaced the image. The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA)
announced that the ad gave a "misleading" impression, but that no
further action was required because the image had already been
withdrawn. Its announcement said:
However, we considered that the post-production re-touching of this
ad, specifically in the eye area, could give consumers a misleading
impression of the effect the product could achieve. We considered that
the combination of references to 'younger looking eyes', including the
claim 'reduces the look of wrinkles and dark circles for brighter,
younger looking eyes', and post-production re-touching of Twiggy's
image around the eye area, was likely to mislead.
Twiggy remains in the forefront of fashion for women of her age. She
was one of the few famous celebrities to survive being cut from the
Marks & Spencer fashion team in 2009–2010, when Dannii Minogue
joined her for the spring/summer women's wear campaign. She
also started an HSN fashion line called the "
collection, and has begun a fashion blog to discuss the line.
Women in their 60s and 70s are remaining stylish today, and this trend
has been termed the "
On 21 November 2011
Twiggy released the album Romantically Yours,
through EMI. A collection of pop and easy listening standards spanning
several generations, the album features versions of such compositions
as "Bewitched, Bothered and Bewildered", "Blue Moon", "My Funny
Valentine", "Someone to Watch over Me" and "They Can't Take That Away
from Me". The album also includes a guest vocal appearance by Twiggy's
daughter Carly Lawson on Neil Young's "Only Love Can Break Your
Heart", a guitar solo by Bryan Adams, and a version of Richard Marx's
"Right Here Waiting" featuring duet vocals with the American
songwriter himself. Romantically Yours was produced by James McMillan,
whose résumé includes playing trumpet for Sade and James Brown.
