I was so obsessed with Twiggy as a middle schooler; she was what made me want to become a fashion designer.  At the time, I remember talking to my guidance counselor and being to embarassed to say that was what I wanted to do when I grew up because I thought it wasn't intellectual enough...I told him instead that I wanted to be an artist.
Anyway, it was about the time when I started to learn what the internet was, and I had some Twiggy fan site bookmarked and would just look at it all the time (the theme music was the Beatles "and your bird can sing").  I bought some Twiggy stuff off of ebay, including this original fan magazine

i'm sure my hair stylist loved it when I brought him this how to guide on Twiggy's haircut. I wanted mine exactly like hers.

Will the Real Twiggy Please Stand Up

my previous post was written because I saw this image from Laia's blog 
I thought, "Hey, I've seen that before!"
