Supermodel Lindsey Wixson Was Teased, Too


Seventeen-year-old Lindsey Wixson is one of the modeling world’s biggest sensations, but life wasn’t always Gucci, Prada, and miles of stark white runways. Before she broke big on the pages of W magazine, Wixson says she was bullied by girls in her class, who made fun of her for her gap teeth and height. “I actually had a group of girls who made a list of things they didn’t like about me,” she claims. But despite the early taunts, Wixson says she’d still like to return home to her native Kansas sometime soon because she misses her parents. “They keep me grounded,” she says.

Lindsey Wixson, 16, Goes Gray For Barneys

Boy, models sure grow old fast these days. In Barneys’ fall 2010 catalog, model Lindsey Wixson, who is all of 16, has gray hair. The text-heavy fashion story is actually pretty adorable. The images are accompanied by a funny tale about a girl who moves into a new apartment where she falls in love with a mysterious, enigmatic cat. It’s so … literary.

The Gap-Toothed Trend Leads Some To Get Their Teeth Gapped

I’ve written about the gap-toothed trend here two times before (here and here) because I have a gap between my front teeth. Finally, I am organically on trend! The other day, I was actually wondering if, because of all the famous people rocking a gap between their teeth — from models to actresses — some people would actually get a gap put between their teeth. Sure enough, the Wall Street Journal reports folks are doing just that. Keep reading »

See New York Fashion Week From Model Lindsey Wixson’s POV

What’s Fashion Week like when you’re one of the industry’s hottest young models? Photographer Gabrielle Revere followed Lindsey Wixson, a 5-foot-10 15-year-old from Wichita, KS, who also happens to be the face of Miu Miu, as she traveled from castings to fittings to hair and makeup to the runway during last month’s New York Fashion Week. Watch how she inspired one of Jason Wu’s dresses, encouraged Agyness Deyn to get up after a runway spill, and stopped at Starbucks for a snack. And because the photo essay was shot for LIFE, rather than an ad campaign or glossy mag, everything you see is real, meaning no wonky Photoshopping. [LIFE] Keep reading »

Photoshop Of Horrors: Lindsey Wixson

We’ve written about 15-year-old model Lindsey Wixson here before, and now her new ad campaign for Miu Miu, shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot, is floating its way around the fashion blogs. This shot in particular caught our eye. No doubt, Wixson is tall and skinny, but that leg? It looks either very, very skinny and very, very long, or it’s been weirdly tweaked by that magical body-morphing process known as Photoshop. These days, there’s a great deal of discussion over how thin is too thin in the modeling world, and why those in the magazine and advertising industries insist upon tweaking women’s bodies into unreal, unsightly proportions. It’s hard to tell if what’s going on here is a pair of coltish legs or a photo-manipulator gone wild. Either way, it looks … alien. Isn’t Wixson interesting-looking enough on her own?
