A Documentary on Iconic '60s Supermodel Twiggy Is in the Works
Set to release in 2023.
Twiggy, the iconic 1960s supermodel, is the subject of a new feature documentary directed by Sadie Frost.
Titled Twiggy, the film is currently in production and is written by Terry Newman, the author of “Harry Styles: and the Clothes He Wears,” in addition to Erin O’Connor, Paul McCartney, Lulu, Poppy Delevingne, Brooke Shields, Pattie Boyd and Zandra Rhodes. Set to receive a theatrical release in the U.K. and Ireland in 2023, the movie will feature Twiggy herself, as well as her husband Leigh Lawson. With filming taking place in London and New York City, the documentary will cover the supermodel’s career and her rise to fame.
Originally named Lesley Hornby, Twiggy, now 73, was born in 1949 and became a cultural icon for her androgynous style. She was most well known for her exaggerated lower lash look and short hair, and modeled for titles like Vogue and Tatler throughout the ’60s in her teenage years. In addition to modeling, Twiggy also took on acting, starring in movies such as The Boy Friend (1971) which won her two Golden Globe Awards.
As for Frost, the director made her feature documentary debut with Quant at the 2021 BFI London Film Festival, focusing on the life and career of Mary Quant.
