I remember her so well, while I was growing up seeing her beautiful body splashed over everything I saw. I was totally turned on by her and sought to find a girl just like her for my mate. Well, imagine that as the years passed by I ended up with girls the exact opposite of that. Go Figure!!!!!!!!!!

Twiggy played guitar, jamming good with weird and gilly
And the spiders from Mars. She played it left hand
But made it too far
Became the special man, then we were Twiggy's band

And now the poor dear has to appear on "America's Next Top Model" with Tyra. What a sad fate.

The story about Justin de Villeneuve taking pictures of Twiggy which made her a star are not true. Photographer Bary Lategan took those images for Mayfair celebrity stylist Leonard, who hung them up on his salon's walls. A fashion editor saw those images and wrote an article about Twiggy, calling her The Face of '66. Nigel Davies, her hairdresser boyfriend, changed his name to Justin de Villeneuve, became her manager, and took 50% of her earnings as his due. She left him in 1973. Lesley's nickname was Twig. Justin sugggested that she call herself Twiggy.
