Lindsey Wixson became famous due to her unique features, full, pouty lips, big eyes and gap teeth. After being rejected by IMG Models in 2009, she lately signed with Marilyn Agency. Her first season of shows was during New York Fashion Week in 2009, but she walked as an exclusive for Miu Miu and Prada at Milan Fashion Week in the fall of 2009.
It was at Milan fashion week in 2009 that photographer Gabrielle
Revere noticed Lindsey's special beauty.
“She was so unlike the other girls. I could tell upon meeting her for the very first time that she was a star on the rise,” the photographer said.
Lindsey Wixson also appeared in campaigns for Versace, Miu Miu and Mulberry. Wixson modeled for the Miu Miu spring/summer 2010 campaign shot by photographers Mert Alas and Marcus Piggot. She is the face of Versace's “Vanitas” perfume in an ad campaign shot by photographer Craig McDean.
