My Favourite Pop Celebrity - Twiggy
Welcome to my lense My Favourite Pop Celebrities
I remember Twiggy's arrival on the celebrity scene in by 1966 very well. As an impressionable young lad of just 9 years, Twiggy was a blast of fresh air and with her striking looks was a constant topic of discussion in the school playground. Twiggy was one of us, of our generation, and did away with all the old pre-conceptions of what it was to be famous.
What's more, Twiggy has stayed the course, changing her image and her attributes to match the current mood and carrying her army of existing fans - and new ones too - along. How many stars of today have been as versatile: Model, actress, singer of pop, rock and Country music, Twiggy entertained us all through her own variety television series.
By the 1990's Twiggy was a Television Presenter and Interviewer. More recently, Twiggy has become the face of Marks & Spencers and Littlewood Catalogue.
