Some blame her for models' super skinny frames today. Twiggy once commented that her skinniness was a genetic thing and she ate a regular diet. Twiggy tel: 02073441000

(SAE) Veruschka After studying art in Hamburg, Germany she moved to Florence, Italy. There she was discovered, at age 20, by the photographer Ugo Mulas and became a full-time model. In 1961, she moved to New York City, but soon returned to Munich. She had recievied attention when she made a brief five minute appearance in the 1966 cult film Blow Up by Michelangelo Antonioni. She worked with Salvador Dalí and photographer Peter Beard, who took her to Kenya. At her peak, she earned as much as $10,000 a day. In 1975, however, she departed from the fashion industry due to disagreements with Grace Mirabella, the newly appointed editor-in-chief of Vogue. In a 1999 interview, Veruschka said, "she wanted me to be bourgeois, and I didn't want to be that." She didn't model for a long time after that. Occasionally Veruschka still appears on catwalks. She was a guest model in the Melbourne Fashion Festival in 2000 in Australia. In October 2010, at the age of 71, she modelled for Giles Deacon's showing for the fall run of London Fashion Week.

In the 20th century many design companies began to hire artists to sketch designs for clothes. The images were shown to clients, which was much cheaper than producing an actual sample. If the client liked their design, they ordered it and the company made more money. The tradition of designers sketching out designs instead of presenting completed products began a new economy. Icon
In the modern culture, the word icon is used in the general sense of a symbol as a name, face, or a person recognized as having some well-known significance. A fashion icon usually conceives new clothes, combinations, colors, patterns, or textures influencing a large number of people. In the Middle Ages, fashion was influenced by what was worn at royal courts.
In the 19th century the first fashion designers had their labels sewn into the clothes they had created. These designers’ success was that they were able to dictate to their customers what they should wear, instead of following the lead (icon) as earlier designers had done. 50s fashion: shorter skirts and short hair with more curls (especially dyed blond) Marilyn Monroe (born Norma Jeane Mortenson; June 1, 1926 – August 5, 1962) was an American actress, model, and singer, who became a major icon, starring in a number of motion pictures during the 1950s and early 1960s. She began a career as a model, which led to a film contract in 1946 with Twentieth Century-Fox. She was told that they were looking for models with lighter hair, so she bleached her brunette hair a golden blond. Monroe's films assisted in establishing her "dumb blonde" persona, which contributed to her popularity.The final years of Monroe's life were marked by illness and personal problems. The circumstances of her death have been the subject of conjecture. Though officially classified as a "probable suicide", other possibilities have not been ruled out. Forever Marilyn is a giant statue of Marilyn Monroe designed by Seward Johnson. The statue is a representative of one of the most famous images of Monroe, taken from the film The Seven Year Itch. In September 1954, she shot a key scene for the movie on Lexington Avenue at 52nd Street in New York City. In it, she stands with her co-star, Tom Ewell, while the air from a subway blows her skirt up. A large crowd watched as director Billy Wilder ordered the scene to be refilmed many times. This iconic imageentered pop culture. Marilyn Monroe Picture of Monroe by Andy Warhol

The 1960's were considered to be a time for change, and exactly what Jacqueline Kennedy did for White House fashion. Jacqueline Kennedy became a fashion icon during her few years as first lady and her influence on women's attire continued throughout her life. Everyone fell in love with Jackie's grace and style. She loved wearing bright colors such as pink and yellow. Her own personal fashion icon was Audrey Hepburn, she would always feature the flavor of Hepburn's old Hollywood glamor. As a result, Jackie chose Hubert de Givenchy as her designer since Givenchy created looks for Audrey Hepburn (as in 'Breakfast at Tiffany's). 60s fashion: influenced by the flower power movement
wild fashion, young style (against the establishment), neon colors, pop art, mini skirt, hair styled high Jacqueline "Jackie" Lee Bouvier Kennedy Onassis (28, 1929 – May 19, 1994) was the wife of the 35th President of the United States, John F. Kennedy, and the First Lady of the United States during his presidency from 1961 until his assassination in 1963. Fashion Jackie Kennedy's daywear generally consisted of simple sleeveless dresses, Chanel jackets and an A-line skirt by Dior, paired with her signature pillbox hat, long white gloves and usually pearls. Jackie always completed her daywear with her black, oversized sunglasses - a trend that is still in style. For eveningwear, Jackie's style was generally a sleeveless look in a single color. Jackie loved backless or off-the shoulder gowns. Her shoes and accessories would always match her evening apparel perfectly. A pair of white gloves was another signature accessory of Jackie Kennedy's.
Madonna had many looks during the 80’s. Her ability to re-style herself has contributed to her long career. One of her most iconic looks from the 80s was the bleached blond, wavy hair with highlights, worn with black tank tops and skirts. She started the layered look, with shirts and coats and more shirts and skirts worn over tights or shorts. Her layer look also included accessories, she wore multiple necklaces and bracelets, usually pearls and beads. Her earrings were always long and dangly.
Madonna changed the fashion industry forever. 80’s Fashion: wild but elegant, company labels, more sport outfits (influenced by movies like Grease and Footloose) Madonna Madonna (born Madonna Louise Ciccone, August 16, 1958) is an American singer (sold more than 300 million records worldwide), songwriter, actress, director, and dancer.
