I truly believe it was their ability to stand out of a crowd by being themselves and the fact that they each took the sexiest aspect of themselves and played it up. Marilyn-dyed her hair Jean Harlow platnium, wore clothes to accentuate her curves. Audrey-had her hair cut short, which played up her cheekbones, had that accent and used her greatest ally-fashion by way of Givenchy to give her a sophisticated style. With Twiggy it was all about her eyes, so she played up her eyes, and she was SO skinny that her body worked at a time where mini skirts reigned and her flat chest and slender body was a hanger for all these fashions of the 60s.
