L’Oréal begins 3D-printing Twiggy
Using replicated human skin, the French cosmetics firm are slowly cloning the 60’s style icon. With state-of-the-art 3-D printing a spokesman said they expect to re-create Twiggy: ‘…from scratch, or scratchings to be precise. Twiggy scratchings. Twiglets, if you like’.
A bioengineer explained the process: ’All we need are a few of Linda Evangelista’s toenail clippings and then the printer copies the original until you have a mindless lump of tissue in front of you – like Kate Moss.
‘We want the consumer to ask. Maybe she's born with it? Maybe it's Maybelline? Maybe it’s the result of sinister bioengineering by a firm founded by Nazi sympathizers?’
