On Our NYFW Radar: Lindsey Wixson
While gearing up for New York Fashion Week and going through a list of models we hope to see strutting down the runways, we came across the beauty, Lindsey Wixson. She is the one model we CANNOT wait to see! Maybe it’s because we have seen her in so many Spring/Summer 2011 ad campaigns recently, such Jill Stuart, Versace Fragrance, Mulberry, Alexander McQueen and Opening Ceremony. Or maybe is because she has the most perfectly shaped puckers that far outweigh Angelina Jolie’s, and her gap-toothed grin, dare I say better than Georgia May Jagger’s? Either way, Wixson has captured our hearts and I think it’s fair to say the heart of everyone else in fashion industry.
But, it wasn’t all rainbows and unicorns for Wixson and her modeling career in the beginning…In 2009 Wixson signed with Vision Model Management, after being rejected by IMG Models. Wixson signed with Marilyn Model Management soon after, and instantly got snatched up by Vogue Italia. She was then featured in magazines such as Lula, Teen Vogue, i-D, W, LOVE and V magazine. Wixson was also the face of Miu Miu in seasons past, and according to New York Magazine, has renewed this contract for Fall 2011! She has quite the modeling career going on, especially for only being sixteen years and for only being in the industry for a year or so. Kudos to Wixson, we can’t wait to watch you!
We will make sure to keep you up-to-date on Wixson’s status during fashion week; we’re predicting that she will be on majority of the catwalks! If you have a favorite model you would like to see featured on Model Monday let us know in the comment box below!
