You might have noticed a new face in fashion land recently. She's beautiful, she's elegant, she's modelled for some of the biggest brands in the business, and she's only 16 years old. Kansas-born Lindsey Wixson is the model of the moment, with campaigns for Mulberry, McQueen and Versace under her belt, and she's still at school.
The teenager has wanted to model since she was twelve years old, she tells the Daily Mail: 'My mum was like: 'Are you sure you want to do this?" She didn't know what was going on, Luckily, I had an older sister and so my parents were like: ''Teenagers go through phases and it's going to be okay''. They really have stood behind me the entire way.'
Wixson's distinctive look has led the fashion press to proclaim a new beauty ideal for 2011: gap teeth and full lips. Her career is remarkable for the number of campaigns she has starred in, in a very short period of time. Time will tell just how long she can keep her place at the top of the fashion heap, but you can be pretty sure we'll be seeing an awful lot more of Wixson yet.
