Maxi 70s

I think I avoided a Seventies maxi coat but I did have a maxi-dress for my 21st birthday. This film clip is focused on the maxi style but there’s loads of  interesting background detail as well.

Interesting Interview with Twiggy


Following on from

Swinging Sixties Icons

this is an interesting interview with Lesley Hornby aka Twiggy in which she hints at a movie career.

And we all know what happened next.

But I couldn’t remember if Twiggy had made any other films, so quick Wiki search to see what else she was in:

The Boy Friend (1971)
W (1974)
There Goes The Bride (1979)
The Blues Brothers (1980)
The Doctor and the Devils (1985)
Club Paradise (1986)
The Little Match Girl (1986)
Madame Sousatzka (1988)
The Diamond Trap (1988)
Sun Child (1988)
Istanbul (Keep Your Eyes Open) (1990)
Body Bags (1993)
Something Borrowed, Something Blue (1997)
Edge of Seventeen (1998)
Brand New World (based on the Jeff Noon play Woundings) (1998)

And then there’s the M&S adverts.


Well done Twiggy.

She’ll be 70 next year.

Truly a Sixties Icon.
