Twiggy Lawson (born 1949) famous supermodel of The Sixties. Famous pose with a rabbit in her lap. Was very thin but not anorexic.

Starred in a very funny musical called The Boyfriend.

When married has had stable marriage, which is uncommon for a celebrity. Another example would be Paul Newman.

Twiggy started modelling as the original waif in 1966 at the age of 17. She was known for her slim "boy-like" body and long eyelashes made even longer with strips of spidery falsies and tiny lines called "Twiggies" drawn on with liner. Twiggy's unique hairstyle of cropped blonde locks quickly put the teased (back-combed) hairdo out of style. At the height of her popularity she received fanmail simply addressed: "Twiggy, London, England".

Twig"gy (?), a.

Of or pertaining to a twig or twigs; like a twig or twigs; full of twigs; abounding with shoots.

" Twiggy trees."
