Fashion Trends From The 1960’s – Who Changed The Fashion World?
When you hear someone say 1960s fashion and beauty, the first person who springs to mind is most probably Audrey Hepburn, especially when she played Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s. Audrey Hepburn is the epitome of 60s fashion. She oozed effortless elegance and sophistication and was undoubtedly a 60s fashion and beauty icon.
Twiggy was ‘the world’s first teenage model’, starting out when she was only 16. She was tiny; weighing only 6 and a half stone and whilst she didn’t consider herself as beautiful, the industry saw her as the perfect young model. By the time she was 17, Twiggy was one of the most well-known faces in the world.
Jackie Kennedy was only 31 when she became First Lady, making her the youngest First Lady for over 60 years. She brought glamour to the role and was ‘the walking definition of class’. Jackie Kennedy was a role model to hundreds of young women, as well as bringing about new trends such as the bouffant hairdo, the low-heeled pump and the shift dress.
