Is This The New 15?

Susannah Breslin / June 16, 2009

Is this what 15 looks like these days? The other day, I came across this post on Fashion Copious, one of my favorite fashion blogs. It was titled: “The Lips! & The Sphere Of Her Stomach.” Its subject is Lindsay Wixson, a bee-stung-lipped, baby-faced, up-and-coming model who could be the Next Big Thing. She’s 5’10” (or 5’11”, depending on the site). She has blond hair and blue-green eyes. And she’s 15. I was kind of, well, astonished. To call her precocious would be a bit of an understatement. She looks both very young and very mature at the same time. Which made me wonder: Is this what 15 looks like in 2009? Anyway, is it just me, or do you, too, think 15 is looking very grownup, indeed?
