Vintage Disneyland | Twiggy and Svengali 1967

On April 27, 1967, super-model Twiggy (Lesley Hornby) and her entourage spent a day at Disneyland, filming segments for her June 1967 show, “Twiggy: Why?” Most of these photos also feature her then boyfriend, manager, and Svengali, Nigel Davies, who changed his name to Justin de Villeneuve. Even back then, people reinvented themselves and their backgrounds. The two split up in 1973 when Twiggy discovered he was taking more than his share of her earnings for himself.
