Twiggy's Daughter

Twiggy married American actor Michael Witney,whom she met on the set of their film W, in 1977. They had a daughter, Carly, born in 1978. The marriage lasted six years, but was destroyed by Witney's heavy drinking. He died of a heart attack in 1983 six months after they separated.

Twiggy met Leigh Lawson in 1984. In 1988 they worked on the film "Madame Sousatzka" and married that year in Sag Harbor, Long Island. Lawson adopted Twiggy's daughter, who took on his surname. The pair live in London and also own a home in Southwold, Suffolk.

Ever since Twiggy's daughter was a teenager, Carly Lawson has resisted the temptation to follow in Twiggy's popular footsteps.

But at the age of 29, Twiggy's daughter has eventually given in...

In  detail, Twiggy's daughter stepped out alongside her mother in her first modelling assignment in July 2008, a collection Twiggy has designed for the home shopping company "Littlewoods Direct".

"Carly and I have always wanted to work together so it will be fun," was quoted as saying Twiggy.

Despite offers to take to the catwalk, Carly studied animation at Edinburgh University, but has since decided on a career in fashion - if only behind the scenes - working as a print designer for Stella McCartney.

What do you think of Twiggy's daughter? Isn't she wonderful as her famous mother?
