Twiggy: Good outfits equal good moods

Twiggy: Good outfits equal good moods

Twiggy won't have a good day if she's uncomfortable in an outfit.

The former model shot to fame as the poster child for 60s fashion and was often seen rocking short hemlines and doe-like eye make-up.

With a stint as a judge on America's Next Top Model and a fashion line with UK high street retailer Marks & Spencer, Twiggy, real name Lesley Lawson, is still keeping her fashion credentials alive. However, her attitude to clothes has changed drastically.

"I choose clothes I feel comfortable in, otherwise I know it's not going to be a good day," she smiled to British magazine Woman's Weekly.

Twiggy models some of her latest designs for the publication, including a blue-and-white maxi dress that she admits to being "so proud" of.

The 65-year-old started designing for Marks & Spencer three years ago, with current model Rosie Huntington-Whiteley following suit and creating an underwear line for the brand.

"I see myself as part of the M&S family. I am very hands-on with my designs. My mum taught me how to sew and knit when I was 11, and I've made some of my own clothes over since. I feel like I'm qualified for the job, plus I know what I like about fashion," Twiggy explained.

"I wanted a wardrobe that's perfect for summer. I wanted the pieces to mix and match and, apart from the gorgeous maxi dress, all the pieces can be worn through autumn too."

Feminine T-shirts, boyfriend-style shirts and sultry dresses also make up the collection.
