TOP MODEL SECRETS

LINDSEY WIXSON

Lagerfeld once said Lindsey Wixson has a face like nobody else. The whole fashion community seems to agree, because the Kansas girl is always in demand. These are her model secrets.

With features like bee-stung lips and a gap between her front teeth, Lindsey Wixson is not the prototype for a top model. But the industry does love beauty that isn’t stereotypical. In 2009 Wixson – then a new face – created a big buzz when she opened Prada’s fall show in Milan and weeks later closed for Miu Miu in Paris. Later on she created an even bigger buzz by falling no fewer than three times during one show. 

Of course the mishaps didn’t affect Wixson's career. In fact, they may have helped her reach a bigger audience and land new jobs. Since her 2009 debut, she’s been the face for big campaigns for Miu Miu, Galliano, Alexander McQueen and Fendi – to name a few. She’s also been featured on the cover of Muse, i-D, Purple and V. 

After shooting with H&M the 21-year-old model took time to write down her best beauty tips and name her favourite hotel, restaurant and off-duty look. Oh, she slipped in a life goal too!
