Will The Real Twiggy Please Stand Up?

Pictures of Twiggy, Manhattan, New York, 1967

I was the first to photograph Twiggy in the United States. She was an overnight sensation. Every one wanted to be Twiggy. I suggested everyone wear Twiggy masks, which were shot and manufactured in the studio a week before the shoot. I believe we manufactured over 500 masks of which I have a few left. We gave them out to the crowds who gathered to watch the shoot at the selected locations. Although the participants promised to give the masks back, they mysteriously disappeared.
