Twiggy was initially known for her thin build and the androgynous appearance considered to result from her big eyes, long eyelashes, and short hair. She was named “The Face of 1966” by the Daily Express and voted British Woman of the Year.

By 1967, Twiggy had modelled in France, Japan, and the US, and had landed on the covers of Vogue and The Tatler. Her fame had spread worldwide.

These vintage photos are beautiful portraits of Twiggy taken by Ron Burton in London for The Mirror and Herald in October 1966.
