Lindsey Wixson Early Life

Lindsey Wixson

Model Lindsey Wixson-Young was born in the United States on April 11, 1994.

She is renowned for having distinctive features, including “bee-stung lips,” “rosebud pout,” and gapped front teeth.

She is well recognised for her ads for brands including Chanel, Jill Stuart, Miu Miu, Versace Vanitas, and Alexander McQueen.

Michele, a school bus driver, and Thomas, a satellite dish installer. Kirsten is her sister. Wixson’s father gave her the gapped teeth.

She had dreams of being a chef or a lawyer as a young child. Wixson experienced bullying in middle school and developed self-consciousness about her appearance after having her tooth gap termed a “parking lot.”

Strangers would approach her when she was 12 years old and 5’7″, telling her she might be a model, so she started looking into it as a potential job.

She was motivated by a Reader’s Digest piece about Bill Gates and other millionaires at roughly the same time, noting that “it was talking about how they took the chance and they took their possibilities and they took it to a whole other level.”

Wixson made the decision to pursue modelling and studied vintage issues of Vogue while researching the lives of supermodels like Gisele, Christy, and Kate.

Wixson first joined with the Kansas-based Models and Images agency, which put her in touch with Vision LA. Her parents decided to drive down to Los Angeles and take out a loan.

Wixson enjoys writing and creating art. Wixson stated that she would adore to become a pilot after she retires from modelling. Daphne Groeneveld, Camille Rowe, Ethan Green, and Aymeline Valade are some of her model friends.

Currently, Wixson holds a GED. Wixson claimed that her confidence had much increased as a result of modelling and that Kate Moss’s sense of style is an inspiration.

Jason Wu, the same designer who created Michelle Obama’s inauguration gown, created her prom dress specifically for her in 2011.

Inspiration will undoubtedly come from the hectic, travel-filled life she’s been leading since 2009. The model received offers from IMG and New York models after shooting for Italian Vogue with Meisel—and earning a page all to herself in that September issue of W, featuring a close-up of her infamous gap-toothed pout—but chose to sign with Marilyn Agency and later switched over to the Society Management.

She also made friends along the way with Miuccia Prada, Karl Lagerfeld, and Jason Wu, who willingly created her prom outfit.

Lindsey Career

In 2009, Wixson signed with Los Angeles’ Vision Models to start her modelling career. She travelled to New York in June 2009 but was turned down by IMG Models and a number of other agencies because casting directors believed her appearance would not translate effectively both on and off the catwalk, with the exception of Marilyn Agency.

She was just 15 when Steven Meisel hand-selected her for Vogue Italia, her first work, after discovering a video of her on Models.com.

She made her runway debut for Cynthia Steffe during the Spring 2010 New York Fashion Week.  As one among the most prominent entrants that season, Wixson then travelled to Milan where she opened the spring 2010 Prada show and closed for Miu Miu in Paris.

By September, Stefano Tonchi, the editor of W magazine, had published his debut issue, which featured a full-page close-up of her lips and the gap in her teeth, two of her most striking features.

She subsequently became the model for the Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott-shot Spring 2010 Miu Miu advertising campaign.

She was described as the “embodiment of a free-spirit on the edge of womanhood” in a press release about the ad (she would stay with the brand for a two-season run).

However, Wixson has restrictions on the clothing she can wear when modelling. For example, when Craig McDean photographed Wixson for the W magazine “Run of Show,” Wixson asked for a bra because her top was see-through.

LIFE magazine hired photographer Gabrielle Revere  to capture Wixson at work during New York Fashion Week. A 15-year-old teen model’s journey through fittings, hair, makeup, and the catwalk is chronicled in the narrative.

Photographer Gabrielle Revere’s 2010 exhibition “I Remain, You Desire” at Sotheby’s featured a selection of 10 unseen images from the LIFE magazine session.

With the fall/winter campaigns for Miu Miu, Jill Stuart Beauty, Barney’s, Versace Vanitas Fragrance, and Galliano, she brought the season to a close.

Additionally, she participated in 44 shows overall in the fall in New York, Paris, and Milan.  and received her first significant magazine cover, which appeared in the i-D fall 2010 issue.

With advertisements for Mulberry, Barney’s, Alexander McQueen, Jill Stuart, Jill Stuart’s Night Jewels Fragrance, Jill Stuart Beauty, and Versace Vanitas Fragrance, Wixson kicked out the spring/summer 2011 season as the modelling industry’s biggest emerging star. Additionally, she acted as the model for Chanel’s spring beauty line.

She collaborated with Coco Rocha on her debut editorial project for Vogue, a two-model shoot. Wixson is more interested in quality than quantity, according to her agent Cheri Bowen at Marilyn Agency, who is also her manager “She is highly knowledgeable about the industry. She doesn’t believe in going rogue “.

When Wixson, then 17, made her national broadcast debut on CNN, the cameras and reporter Alina Cho followed her home to Wichita to document her prom experience. She was promoted as a “teen supermodel.”
