National Portrait Gallery To Commemorate Twiggy

It seems like Twiggy will never go out of style, and as the years pass, her iconic stature only seems to gain importance. To wit: The National Portrait Gallery in London is paying tribute to the model with an exhibition of her best work. Of course, “Twiggy: A Life in Photographs” owes its constitution largely to the photographers known for making her a household name, such as Cecil Beaton, Richard Avedon, and Annie Leibovitz, to name a few. Twiggy, who still models (!) commented on the exhibition, underlining the reason why we’d want to see it: “It’s really interesting to see how fashion photography and portraiture have evolved throughout my career.”

Considering that not all of us will get to London in time to see the show, you’re in luck—a book of the works displayed will be released as well, which would make a nice highbrow addition to any coffee table or library. Of course, those who are just interested in the seedy, gossipy modeling should check out her autobiography, Twiggy in Black and White (we’re not judging). [Vogue UK]
