Rocking the Runway
Lindsey Wixson debuted during the Spring 2010 Cynthia Steffe fashion show at New York Fashion Week. That same season, at Milan Fashion Week, she opened the Prada show as an exclusive, making her one of the most talked about newcomers of the year. The young American model also closed the Miu Miu fashion show in Paris, again as an exclusive.
During the Fall 2010 season, Wixson continued her collaboration with Miu Miu and was chosen to open the brand’s fashion show in Paris. She also closed the Missoni and Sophia Kokosalaki fashion shows.
The following seasons were very successful for Lindsey Wixson. She opened and closed some very prestigious fashion shows in Milan, Paris and New York. Her resume now includes Versace, Jean Paul Gaultier, Chanel, Christian Dior Couture, Missoni, Moschino and many others.
Though Wixson’s first step in the fashion industry was posing for Steven Meisel, she had to work hard before she got her first fashion magazine cover. In 2010, she was chosen to be on the cover of i-D magazine’s cover, photographed by Emma Summerton.
In 2011, the young model landed on four fashion magazine covers with three of them photographed by fashion photographer Terry Richardson. Those covers were pre-fall i-D magazine, Purple magazine and the Winter edition of V magazine. On her 4th magazine cover, Wixson posed for Will Davidson during a shoot for Muse.
Lindsey Wixson continues to aim high and if her dreams come true, she will retire from modeling, and become a pilot. Until then, Wixson remains one of the most successful models on and off the catwalk. Her gapped front teeth and “bee-stung lips” have become her most recognizable trademarks. She has already reached her peak as a professional model and still continues to enrapture us all.
