Mod

1. THE ICON: Dubbed the Face of 1966 by Britain's Daily Express, Twiggy embodied the exuberance of the decade. She was the original waif supermodel, with a 5'6", 90-lb. frame that served as the perfect hanger for the jumpers, minis and A-line dresses that typified the era's Youthquake.

2. FROM THE RUNWAY: With a nod to the '60s, Marc Jacobs's fall show leapt into the future. His primary-bright minidresses, jumpers and coats, set off by contrasting tights, exude a playful, young vibe—just like the originals.

Fresh Face
The new mod is a chic, updated look—not a costume—so keep makeup modern with a light hand. Eyes are smoky (no false lashes) and lips are pale (not white). For touch-ups, try carrying an ultra-mod compact ke Estée Lauder's Eyeshadow Duo ($30; esteelauder.com) to complete the effect.

Memories of MOD
"The look was sexy, chic, sharp and young," says Mary Quant, whose miniskirts and hotpants sparked the '60s fashion revolution "It was a very optimistic look and anticipated the way life was going for young people. Life was one long-running."
