''Fashion,'' she observed, ''has

ON a morning in April 1967, Twiggy, the doe-eyed British modeling sensation, sat on a stool before Richard Avedon in his studio on East 58th Street.

    In 1967, Tree moved into Bailey's flat in London's Primose Hill neighbourhood.
    More Details Hide Details It became a hang-out for spaced-out hippies during the "Swinging Sixties" who, Bailey recalled, would be "smoking joints I had paid for and calling me a capitalist pig!" In another famous quote, John Lennon asked to encapsulate Tree in three words, called her, "Hot, Hot, Hot, Smart, Smart, Smart!" She has been extensively compared to The Beatles for inspiring the swinging 60's movement and for galvanizing a generation of young American females. Scars from late-onset acne ended her career in the early 1970s: "I went from being sought-after to being shunned because nobody could bear to talk about the way I looked."
  • 1966

    Tree made a striking appearance at the 1966 Black and White Ball thrown by author Truman Capote, wearing a black V-neck tunic with long slashes from the bottom making floating panels, worn over black tights.
    More Details Hide Details The sensation she caused led photographers Cecil Beaton and Richard Avedon to work together to make her a supermodel. She was sixteen and her father had relented. David Bailey described Penelope as "an Egyptian Jimminy Cricket".
