Ok. Maybe I’m a bit obsessed…but do you remember that designer pronunciation video I featured a while back? You can check it out here in case you missed it. So far, I have already featured one other model, the stunning Sudanese-American Grace Bol, from that video. In case you missed that post, check it out here.
Before I even begin I must confess my infatuation with this week’s featured model. If you did watch the video, were you as curious as I was about whose luscious lips helped you sound out designers like Azzedine Alaia or Issey Miyake?
Look no further than Lindsey Wixson! The young supermodel has made one of the most successful debuts to date and is noted for her luscious lips, rosy rotund cheeks, and signature gapped teeth. The young American hasn’t always had it so easy before her big discovery in 2010 at the age of 15. She suffered quite a few setbacks after being rejected by several agencies like IMG Models in L.A. before being skillfully scooped up by Marilyn Agency. Her claim to fame was having been handpicked by fashion photographer Steven Meisel for a Vogue Italia photoshoot after discovering a video of her on models.com.
After a breakthrough photoshoot with Vogue, Wixson stormed her way onto several runways during New York, Paris, and Milan Fashion week by opening and closing shows for designers like Prada and Miu Miu. The following season she walked a combined total of 44 shows in New York and Paris, making her one of the most successful newcomers that season– all at the young age of 15!
Today the young supermodel has landed major campaigns for Versace, Galliano, and Chanel while also having recently signed with Elite Model Management in Paris. Currently she is signed with seven different agencies located all over the globe and has landed herself the twentieth spot among the rankings of models.com Top 50 Models. At a mere twenty years old I anticipate Wixson to continue climbing up the ranks as she hones her star power even more and secures more work with even more legendary clients.
Check out her work below and let us know what you think!
