Part 3 of 3 [Lindsey Wixson]
3. Lindsey Wixson
Sometimes, there comes a time when you look at a model, and then scratch your head. After a while, then you realise the potential that she has. Then, she surprises you with the work that she’s gotten. And then you start to love her. Is it possible to love the uniqueness of a look, but not necessarily love a model at first sight? I think it is, because that’s the case with Lindsey. The hype surrounding her didn’t help much, and what’s more with a lacklustre New York showing. And then, Milan came, and she was the first girl out at Prada – no mean feat considering Miuccia cut girls right on the spot. Paris came and Miu Miu was closed by the same girl. Both times she was an exclusive for the brand.
Sure, Lindsey’s look is different, but that’s what makes the industry evolve. Critics bash her for looking out 0f this world, and wish for her to be more normal looking. At the same time, they bash the generic Russians who look as if they were manufactured in Soviet factories. Sometimes, it’s unfair for a teenage girl to be scorned for the way she looks. Of course it happens in high school, but such a case is different when you’ve got the whole world trying to bring you down. But with Lindsey’s charm and winsome personality(at least according to tfs posters), I’m sure she’ll be in the industry for quite some time.
