But for many of us gals
tubularb | 09 Septembar, 2019 04:58

But for many of us gals (even preteens like me) the British invasion was also very much about the “supermodel” of the decade. To look like Twiggy, only 16 when she exploded on the international scene in 1966, we cut our hair short and begged our parents to let us wear minis and eye makeup. And we assessed our own lumps and bumps—Twiggy being the thinnest model we had ever seen. In the early 1970s, Twiggy went on to become an actress and singer, including winning two Golden Globe Awards for her first movie, The Boy Friend. More recently, she’s been a judge on America’s Next Top Model, and launched her own “Twiggy London” fashion collection on the Home Shopping Network. And now at age 60, Twiggy gets her name attached to an elegant 450-passenger ship, the newst member of the Yachts of Seabourn fleet. She’ll smash the champagne bottle on June 4, with the ship debuting in Greenwich, UK, on the River Thames.

The next night, the Sojourn will host a fundraising gala for the Breast Cancer Haven, a China brass wire Manufacturers charity that Twiggy supports, before heading off on its maiden voyage (the ship spends the summer on Scandinavia, Russia and the Baltic itineraries). In a prepared statement, Twiggy said she was “incredibly excited” to serve as Godmother of the ship. Other cruise ship "godmothers": Sophia Loren is Godmother of four ships in the fleet of Italian line MSC Cruises.Actress Judi Dench (Dame Judi Dench) - Carnival LegendQueen Elizabeth - Cunard's Queen Mary 2Camilla (Dutchess of Cornwall) - Cunard's Queen VictoriaTinkerbell - the Disney WonderMary Kate and Ashley Oslen, Holland America's ZaandamActress Marcia Gay Harden - Carnival DreamModel Kathy Ireland - Carnival Freedom Guestblogger Fran Golden is a cruise expert and regular contributor to TravelandLeisure.com.
