Why many 2000 -ies celebs, artists, photographers tend to copy classical style and fashion look of 60-70-ies stars? What is it: is it a kind of honorable recognation for timeless style and beauty or a kind of plagerialism, lack of creativity, pretty own style?
In other words, do 60-70-ies stars are modern Icones of style too and seem to be fashionable nowadays?
Model Twiggy (60-ies) is an fashion style Icon. OK, Twiggy, i guess, is a full time Ikon – not only for fashion lovers but for everebody.
I made a brief search throught Twiggy’s picture taken in the end of 60-ies and the begining of 70-ies and fond a lot of modern “copies” of her style, glamour, fashion, innocence, beautiful eyes with long drown eyelashes – all that things that establish her as an timeless Ikone.
Kate Moss trying to restore fashion icone Twiggy’s look on the picture posing with ‘the real’ Twiggy. Both model are coping Twiggy’s make-up and a haircut that she was wearing during canonical 60-ies.
Actress Keira Knightley tries “Twiggy” style too. In this case – whithout original Twiggy.
Jessica Stam coppies original model’s haircut, lips and dramatical eyes and looks a bit like Twiggy, doesn’t she?
Also during 60-ies putting advertising on portraits in magazines wasn’t popular. Over times the advertising industry introduce some new trends and photography for fashion magazines have changed. So there are fashion closes ads on “Twiggy” through 1990 – ies.
In comparison – trendy advertising pictures with Natalia Vodianova – “Twiggy” for Britain Vogue (2009) with closes ads.

Some more pictures with Twiggy (1970)
What do you think?
Whether “copies” “play” thier role sucessfully and put honorable recognation for timeless style – or not – maybe it’s a kind of plagiarism in the XX century & luck of creativity?
