Janice Dickinson is fond of bragging that she was the “first Supermodel,” but in actuality the first supermodels were probably Jean Shrimpton and Twiggy (above) in the 60’s. Twiggy was only 16 when she became world famous for her pixie haircut and super slim androgynous looks. In 1970 she quit modeling and turned to acting in movies and TV. Now 69, she’s still very involved in the beauty business and works with Marks & Spencer on fashion collections for women her age.
