For this exclusive event, join Brandreth as he spends an evening with the world’s first supermodel, Dame Lesley Lawson DBE, more famously known as Twiggy, whose iconic name and face has been at the forefront of fashion, the entertainment world, and media for the past 50 years.
From being discovered and catapulted to fame in the mid 1960’s at the tender age of 16, travelling the world modelling for the major fashion magazines, and being named “The Face of ‘66”, to winning 2 Golden Globe Awards for her first film ‘The Boyfriend’, Twiggy has a fascinating collection of stories to tell. The model and actress is also a writer, designer, presenter, producer and activist, as well as being awarded a Damehood for her contribution to fashion, the arts and charity.
With stories from Gyles about encountering Twiggy in London, New York and, once, in a penitentiary in Texas – and with Twiggy reliving the night the night she danced with Fred Astaire, expect an evening of captivating conversation with a British cultural icon.
