Twiggy has the 1969 romantic hippie thing going with long tendrils, poet-sleeved mini dress and tall suede boots. She looks slightly awkward with one finger tentatively poised on the typewriter carriage and the other on a key. The ad is for Olivetti’s Studio 45: The Brightwriter, with the tag line: “Twiggy loves our new blue-green portable.”
