“It’s a very interesting combination of real life and fantasy…” – Gabrielle Revere on the life of Lindsey Wixson (LIFE.com)
There is something about Lindsey Wixson.
She is undoubtedly captivating to look at; with her signature pout and gap-teeth, Wixson possesses a culturally-ambiguous, almost mysterious quality. This ambiguity extends deeper though.
Beginning her modelling career in 2010, in the fashion major leagues of Vogue Italia no less, Lindsey Wixson has risen to fame seemingly over-night. In just four years, she has walked for Fendi, Prada, Miu Miu, Rodarte, Zac Posen and Gaultier (among others to rack up over 44 shows) and done campaigns for Jill Stuart, John Galliano, Barney’s, Versace, Alexander McQueen, Mulberry, and Chanel. Oh yes, and not to mention, Wixson started working at age 15, which makes her only 19. This success reflects just how desirable her unique (while not isolating) look is. Lindsey Wixson’s story is quite inspiring, made all the more intriguing by the lack of gossip and drama surrounding her name. All of these things make the unconventional and extraordinary Lindsey Wixson someone to watch, and I’m not just talking about her print ads.
To fuel your fasciation here are some of my favourite shots of her.
