41. Twiggy

“I’ve always loved life, and I’ve never known what’s ahead. I love not knowing what might be round the corner. I love serendipity.”

British model and symbol of the swinging sixties, nobody quite summed up the era’s fashion and musical evolution quite like Twiggy. She was named ‘The Face of 1966’ by the Daily Express and voted Woman of the Year that same year.

Ask your parents or grandparents about her – they’ll tell you she was the Kate Moss of the sixties.
