Lesley Hornby, aka Twiggy, was born and raised in England where she was discovered by Nigel Davies in the 60's. Her short-haired, boyish looked, androgynous image, revolutionized the fashion industry standards and she became the "face of the 1966". Her strongest influence while modeling was Jean Schrimpton, an English model, whom Twiggy was latter known to be her successor. Twiggy is considered one of the world's first supermodels.
