twiggy, born Leslie Hornby, was a British super-model in the 1960's, and is
the original waif. she was nick-named "twiggy" because of her thin frame;
she stood five-foot-four, and weighed only 90 pounds.
the waif-like figure became popular again during the grunge fashion era in
the early nineties, with Kate moss as the main model-and role model.
