Lindsey Wixson Interview Page 1
Lindsey Wixson may be one of the modeling world’s biggest faces, but that doesn’t mean she doesn’t get star struck. In an interview with Vogue UK, the 17-year-old rising star spills the beans about the most memorable experience of her career, why she fell so many times on the Fashion for Relief runway, and how her high school friends are, honestly, kind of a bunch of jerks.
Model Lindsey Wixson has had a meteoritic rise to fame in the modeling industry. The 16-year-old Kansas native would be a normal Midwestern teen if Steven Meisel hadn’t discovered her on a modeling website and thrust her into Vogue Italia when she was just 15. Because after that, everyone from Miu Miu to Prada to Mulberry to W magazine came knocking on her doorstep, and now she’s in major ad campaigns — and on almost every major runway from here to Milan. Jason Wu is designing her prom dress. The rest, as they say, is history.
