Twiggy has long been known as the all-rounded woman who revolutionised the fashion industry in the sixties when she began her modelling career at the age of 16. But 50 years later, she’s known for many, many other things. She’s a model, actress, presenter, singer and even designer after her womenswear collaborations with high street giant Marks and Spencer. Now she’s entered the accessories world with an eyewear line for Specsavers, Twiggy for Aurora.

This yeas, Lesley Hornby, Twiggy’s real name, celebrates her 50 years at 67 in the fashion industry, and the launch of embellished reading glasses and sunglasses is just part of the celebration
