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.

Swinging 60s Models

When I was exploring Moped fashion! a couple of weeks ago, I stumbled on this great Youtube film.

If you love all things Sixties, I’m sure you’ll enjoy this fantastic compilation.

Hope you’re having a good day.

Moped fashion!

I’ve always thought that riding a moped was one step up from riding a lawnmower but it looks like I’ve been missing out! This Raleigh ‘Wisp’ moped was put through its paces in 1967 by two obvious enthusiasts who’ve carefully selected their outfits for the occasion.

If you click onto the Online Bicycle Museum there are even a couple of photos of sixties icon Twiggy enjoying a turn on the ‘Wisp’. And an enthusiast named Mark Daniels has told the ‘Wisp’ story in great detail here.

Somehow the ‘Wisp’ passed me by. How about you?

Have a good day!
