'FEED TWIGGY' arose as a slogan from early controversy surrounding Twiggy's figure, thought by some to be a negative influence on young women. Marshall McLuhan stated 'Twiggy is an X-ray, not a picture', and bumper stickers emerged reading 'Forget Oxfam, Feed Twiggy!'. At the time Twiggy herself felt that she got the blame for inventing anorexia, but claimed she 'always ate sensibly - being thin was in my genes.. I just couldn't put on weight.'
