Twiggy's style diary


Twiggy – Actress, model and designer

1. Every woman should own…
A pair of skinny jeans. I always opt for trousers rather than dresses. For as long as I can remember, my style staple has been skinny jeans as they’re so stylish and look great with almost everything.

Ever since I started designing my Twiggy Collection for M&S in 2012 I have introduced a new pair of skinny jeans into each range, from embellished through to cutwork depending on the trends.

2. My favourite fashion item is…
Brogues! I remember buying my first pair in 1968 when shoe shops weren’t yet making them for women. I went to a very posh shoemaker just off Savile Row and ordered an extremely expensive pair of two-tone brogues in brown and white leather.

I loved them and I still have them, after all this time they still look fantastic. These days I have quite a collection of brogues in all different colours and fabrics, including a hot pink suede pair which I designed myself for my M&S Fashion Targets Breast Cancer collection.

3. Best buy…
A jacket I got at a car boot sale in California. It’s a 1940s Prince of Wales check in absolutely pristine condition and I got it for $25 (£20)!

Twiggy is wearing the Floral Print Jumpsuit with Belt from her M&S Twiggy collection. The jumpsuit is available online and in store for £45 with 30% of each sale going straight to Breast Cancer Now to fund vital research.
