Lindsey Wixson for Marc Jacobs
Unless you were living under a rock, you couldn't help but notice Lindsey Wixson
this year—which is why T
magazine has named her 2010's Breakout Model of the Year. Lindsey walked in all of the top shows and has been featured in such high-profile ad campaigns as Miu Miu, Versace and Galliano.
At just 16, Lindsey is turning the fashion world upside down. T
Having walked in all the big shows, including Prada, Chanel and Marc Jacobs, and done campaigns for Miu Miu, Versace and John Galliano, Wixson is the breakout model of the year.
On top of that, designers haven't been shy about expressing their adoration for her unique doll-like features and fresh look. On the Sundance network show The Day Before
, Donatella Versace
cooed at Lindsey saying:
She's brand new, she's the hottest girl in town. She's a doll face. How old are you Lindsey? 16? Oh god, you're adorable, beautiful, gorgeous—Lindsey you look gorgeous. Sexy! I shouldn't say this because you're only 16, but you're very sexy! Her mouth is in the shape of a heart, little heart. So cute! I like her attitude, this kind of innocence in this sexy evening dress is what works, this contrast. Because she doesn't know she's so beautiful you can see, she walks like she's in jeans, and this is what I like. She doesn't model, she's herself on the runway.
