“Briznilla” o Twiggy

Twiggy para los amigos. La mítica modelo para muchos, la primera top de la historia para algunos, a pesar de que el término top model fue acuñado en los 80, ella marcó estilo y época.
Nació el 19 de Septiembre de 1949 y la prensa inglesa la calificó como “el rostro de 1966”. Sería su pelo rubio platino, bien corto y engominado con raya a un lado, una de sus características más transgresoras y vanguardistas. Su singular imagen la logró gracias a los consejos del estilista Vidal Sassoon.
La pequeña modelo que mide aproximadamente 1’67 metros, ganó millones de libras sin siquiera desfilar, le bastaba con posar para los grandes fotógrafos de la época, como Hamilton o Avedon, también salir en las portadas de las revistas femeninas de todo el mundo, o aparecer en algún reportaje de moda, ya que su caché estaba por las nubes tanto en Europa como en EEUU.

Vestidos cortos, minifaldas de Mary Quant, gafas dramáticas, pestañas postizas, ojos enmarcados y muy maquillados y medias a la altura de las rodillas eran su atuendo diario.

El sobrenombre “Twiggy” conquistó durante una sesión de fotos cuando el novio de ésta dijo: ¡Oh Twiggy! desde ahí le aconsejaron usarlo en la profesión.

Al margen de esta peculiar estampa en contraste con la seria moda imperante, su físico escuálido y de eterna adolescente supuso un boom en los 60. Hasta la fecha la tendencia eran modelos con cuerpos curvilíneos, véase Marilyn Monroe.

Leslie Hornby, mujer polifacética donde las haya, ha grabado varios discos (When I Think of You, Over and Over, Twiggy y Please Get My Name Right) y ha escrito un libro: “Twiggy: How I Probably Just Came Along on a White Rabbit at the Right Time and Met the Smile on the Face of the Tiger”.

Este último recorte llegó a mis manos en el metro el pasado Julio. Es de “The London Paper” un periódico gratuito que por cierto, dos meses más tarde cerró con un gran “goodbye” en la portada del último ejemplar.
La revista ELLE regala en su edición de Febrero una bandolera inspirada en un vestido que lució la modelo con estampado de periódico, incluso hoy se bebe de Twiggy.
