sticks and twigs ... style icon.

Born Lesley Hornby, Twiggy became the first super-skinny supermodel. Unlike Nicole Richie, Twiggy actually looks good being stick-thin. This is where she got the name Sticks and Twigs from. Eventually, they decided to let her go by her childhood name - Twiggy. I'm lovin' her pixie bob look. Like all ’60s models, the eye-makeup is distinctive.

When Twiggy said "You can't be a clothes hanger for your entire life!", what do you think she was referring to?

I have no idea what she meant, but I can say I liked her on the ANTM show. Even though I would never want to be that skinny (a size 4 is the smallest I would go), I think she was a great model.
