Good name? Bad name? I’ll work on it. Anyways, the girl today is the british model of the 60’s, Twiggy!
And she wasn’t just a vapid, self-centered girl, either. She actually hated how she looked and thought everyone was “stark-raving mad”.
“Twiggy’s adolescent physique was the perfect frame for the androgynous styles that began to emerge in the 1960s. The trend was manifested in a number of templates: sweet A-line dresses with collars and neckties, suits and dresses that took their details from military uniforms, or, in the case of Yves Saint-Laurent, an explicit transposition of the male tuxedo to women. Simultaneously, under the rubric of ‘unisex’, designs that were minimalistic, including Nehru suits and space-agey jumpsuits, were proposed by designers such as Pierre Cardin and Andre Courreges, and, most famously in the U.S.A., by Rudi Gernreich.”-The Metropolitian Museum of Art’s 2009 Catalogue
