PostHappy 60th Birthday, TWIGGY!

A belated HAPPY BIRTHDAY to TWIGGY, who turned 60 years old on September 19!

In celebration of Twiggy's 60th birthday, the National Portrait Gallery in London is having an exhibition of her famous photographs through March 10, 2010. A book about the exhibition was published in September 2009:

Stage Door Records: September 2009
