A photograph of Twiggy (right), real name Lesley Hornby (1949-), with Kerstin Lindberg, swinging round a lamppost in London, taken by Eatwell for the Daily Herald newspaper on 3 June, 1967. Sixteen-year-old Lindberg was the Twiggy lookalike winner. The competition had been held in Stockholm, Sweden, with 800 women turning up for the chance to win and be taken to London to meet Twiggy. Twiggy was discovered in a hairdresers in 1966, when she was sixteen. The world's first supermodel, Twiggy's face and naturally waif-like figure epitomised the era. This photograph has been selected from the Daily Herald Archive, a collection of over three million photographs. The archive holds work of international, national and local importance by both staff and agency photographers.
