Anna Randal for Art-Sheep

What’s the first thing that comes in your mind when the words fashion and sixties -well the second one it’s not really a word as much as it is an idea- are combined?
If your answer was “Twiggy”, then you past the test. The 60-something former model is intrinsically affiliated with fashion, British pop and the art scene of the 1960s. She first appeared on Vogue in 1967 with a cover that still remains a show-stopper for every fashionista and an emblematic cover in the magazine’s history.
Her doll-like features, big piercing eyes, beautiful freckles and a blond pixie, secured Twiggy a spot in the fashion world, while the combination of innocence and sensuality she showed in her photos, is a trait no
model has the way Twiggy has it.
Below you can see a selection of photographs, taken from the Vogue archives, of some of her more memorable moments.
