The year after London’s Daily Express would anoint her “The Face of ’66,” Twiggy would grace four covers of American Vogue and land one British Vogue cover in her native England. That same year, she shot an editorial for British Vogue in 1967 with photographer Ronald Traeger–whose premature death came just a year later–for the editorial “Shorts Supply.” In the spread, Twiggy showed off her twig-like gams, modeling the micro-minis of the season whilst cycling about, legs detached from the pedals in a free-spirited, childlike manner. For Vogue‘s June 2013 issue, photographer Bruce Weber would not look to the 60s youthquake but the wartime of the 40s to photograph Dree Hemingway. Taking a cue from her great grandfather’s affinity for bicycles, Weber would photograph Dree balancing her legs out from underneath her mid-ride, much like Twiggy’s version decades before.
