Tales of the Unicorn Queen

I adore the 60s model Twiggy. Her face, her presence, her style — so bold, colorful and fun to wear! I enjoy incorporating bits and pieces of her mod style into my own wardrobe with a color-blocking and an occasional futuristic piece. What makes mod so fascinating to me is that it’s both minimalistic and attention-getting: shrinking violets need not apply!

  • THE STYLE

Twiggy’s style was usually comprised of simple shift dresses, oversized geometric patterns and chunky plastic accessories (where my love for eccentric sunglasses comes from). And did I mention pea coats??? It is best if you can find one in a funky color — I once stumbled upon a robin’s egg blue one, alas it was too small! The search continues…

  • THE HAIR

Twiggy hair. Looks great on Twiggy, SO not my thing. I prefer something voluminous to the flat and the subdued. This is where experimentation comes in — by not copying the look to the T, you just might create something that’s uniquely your own. At the moment, I’m big on pairing typical mod items with large, statement-making hair.


  • THE MAKEUP

Twiggy’s makeup deserves a separate chapter. How can one resist that heavy eyeliner, sharply-defined crease and pale lips? It’s so done-up and over-the-top, so perfect. I paid homage to this in my Leprechaunia tutorial and many more to come, I’m sure. Famous person who resembles Twiggy the most? Ke$ha. She has the freckles and the oval face and overall just looks like her. I am convinced that if given the proper makeup, she could be a dead ringer! Do you see that?

  • TWIGGY TWIN

When I met the model Von Moses, my jaw dropped: she looked just like Twiggy, born 40 years later. She even had the same blonde hair in a short cut! Von loved the idea of being transformed into the iconic 60s model, and this is what we got:

Wanna know how I did it?

Deerlings, do you like Twiggy? Any 60s fads that appeal to you?
