Model Profile: Lindsey Wixson

Born in April of 1994 in Kansas of US, Lindsey Wixson at the age of 12 had a dream to be a supermodel. Her mother thought that it was just a passing phase of her youth, but actually, Lindsey was really determined of what she wanted to do in her life. Three years later, in 2009, she signed with Vision in Los Angeles and few months later models.com listed her amongst the newcomers. Her career started to taking off.

 

   Marilyn agency in New York worked with her too. She had the honor to be shooted by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia, in the very beginning.  In the same year she walked for Philosophy di Alberta Ferretti. The most exciting job of them all was that she opend Prada and closed Miu Miu show and that, one year after, she became the face of Miu Miu for two seasons. Usually this brand chooses models with a lot of campaings on their CVs or world known celebrities, so their choice was a very big surpise for Lindsey, who admires Miuccia very much: “She knows what she wants and this is why she is where she is”.

 

Harper’s Bazaar, Numero, Muse, Purple and I-D are some magazine titles of her 18 covers and Alexander McQueen, Anna Sui, Balenciaga, Blumarine, Brioni, Chanel, Christopher Kane, Giambattista Valli, Giles Deacon, Jason Wu, Jean Paul Gaultier, John Galliano, Jonathan Saunders, Julien Macdonald, Kenzo, Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Marni, Missoni, Miu Miu, Nina Ricci, Alessandro dell’Acqua, Oscar de la Renta, Roberto Cavalli, Rochas,  Roland Mouret, Sonia Rykiel, Sportmax, Stella McCartney, Versace, Viktor & Rolf, Yves Saint Laurent are just some of the designers she has walked for. Aren’t you speechless? Of course you are! But I have more to say: She booked the campaing for the Versace fragrance and cosmetic contracts with Jill Stuart and Chanel.

Teen Vogue, Dazed & Confused, W and Love magazine are also great fans of miss Wixson, the girl with the big lips and the gap-toothed smile. When she was younger she didn’t have friends in class because of her strange beauty. Now, as a supermodel and teenager at school, many boys are interested in her. Sorry guys, Lindsey is very busy travelling around the world, rocking the camera with her chameleon charisma and taking our breath away.
