Words matter. These are the best Twiggy Quotes, and they’re great for sharing with your friends.
I have an iPod, but I do still love CDs. There’s something nice and tangible about a CD. I’m a mixture of old and new – I love my sewing machine, but I’ve also embraced new technology. The iPad is what did it for me – it’s extraordinary.
I eat healthily because that’s the way I prefer to eat, and I’m sure it helps keep the weight off.
Being a grown-up woman doesn’t mean you can’t look beautiful, individual and different.
I’ve never really had a waist. Even when I was at my slimmest, my silhouette was very straight up, straight down. But I have learnt how to give myself a bit of waist by optical illusion. For this, bring on the belts.
I was a very, very shy, insecure teenager.
I think everyone should sing – it’s so good for you, as it makes you breathe deeply, and it’s good for you emotionally, too. It’s a brilliant release way of lifting the spirits.
Belts distract the eye from a bloated tummy, a heavy-set upper body and all manner of sins. They can be a superb way to update your wardrobe without breaking the bank, and there’s no reason to stop wearing them, ever!
My golden rules for looking good are to moisturise to ridiculousness with a really rich moisturiser. And I always take my make-up off before going to bed.
The key with a full-skirt shape is to balance it out with a great figure-hugging top.
The trick is to find the style that is right for you. When it comes to trying new clothes, my advice is not to take it too seriously – it’s all about having fun.
I love Kate Moss. I’ve worked with her a couple of times, and she is a great girl, really funny and easy to work with.
I used to do my own make-up. I used to have this doll that had those big eyelashes on the top and bottom, and I think I copied her when I was doing my eyes, putting false eyelashes on the bottom as well as the top. So I came up with that look myself.
Tailored jackets with jeans is a great look for all ages. Dress up with a heel and pretty shirt, or just wear a smart T-shirt under the jacket.
I am very sad that some designers are still using real fur when the fake alternatives are so effective and so easily obtainable.
Wearing a bold print gets harder as you get older. It’s safer to stick to subtle prints or block colours. I have always found prints quite tricky. My daughter Carly, who is on the design team at Stella McCartney, is obsessed with them.
I think I had a fur coat that someone bought me from Portobello Market back in the 1960s, but I think as soon as you think about it, what it is you’re wearing, make that connection, then you realise it’s just not right. I don’t lecture people about it, but it’s not something I’d ever wear.
Fashion should be stylish and fun.
Sometimes I can’t believe I’m going to be 60. I always say there’s no point moaning about getting older, when there’s nothing you can do about it. But still, I do find it quite funny. I look at that number, 60, and I think, ‘Really? Me?’
I like to get on with people. I don’t go around being nasty, but if someone crosses me, I can be horrible back.
I love exercise, but I find it boring doing the same thing all the time, so I fluctuate between going to the gym, doing Pilates, and taking dance lessons.
I love corduroy jeans as well as vertical-striped jeans. Both are a fun switch from plain old denim. They can be slimming so long as the stripes aren’t too chunky.
I’ve always loved life, and I’ve never known what’s ahead. I love not knowing what might be round the corner. I love serendipity.
My weakness is chocolate – especially butterscotch and nut varieties.
I’m grateful for my lines of wisdom. Of course, there are days when I think: ‘Oh my gawd, I look a bit tired.’ But I can pull it together if I have to.
Even if your bosoms are your best asset, deep round-neck or scoop-neck Ts can be too revealing. Offset this flash of gorgeousness by covering up your arms with a little cardi that has sleeves to the elbow.
My elder sister used to get the fashion magazines, and I would go through them and find things I liked and buy fabric and copy them. But I hated what I looked like. I mean, I was sooo skinny.
I don’t like talking about which bits I like or don’t like about my body. Everybody has something they’re not happy with, and my only advice would be, ‘Do something about it – exercise or eat less, but don’t do nothing!’ Find ways to enhance the good bits and camouflage the bad bits.
I can’t live without my cup of tea. When I was a judge on ‘America’s Next Top Model,’ they had to put me in a hotel where I had my own kitchen, because they can’t make tea in America. I was happy then because I could make my own.
I’ve had albums out since the 1970s. I was in a musical, ‘The Boy Friend,’ directed by Ken Russell, and I was on Broadway in ‘My One And Only’ with Tommy Tune, so I’ve always been a singer, but I suppose people think of my modelling more.
Jamie Oliver’s books are the best. I love Jamie. Bless him!
Even before I was discovered in 1966, I used to make my own clothes. I learned how to sew early on, and it’s still my passion now. I constantly have ideas in my head about clothes so jumped at the chance to do my own collection and am very hands-on. Everything I design, I wear and I love.
I was very skinny, but that was just my natural build. I always ate sensibly – being thin was in my genes.
From as far back as I can remember, I was always insecure about my looks, whether it was my flat chest, my skinny legs, or how to cope with my body as it changed. With hindsight, I can see I was different. I was given a body that worked for photographic modelling and a photogenic face.
