What's with Lindsey Wixson?

Upon my return to The Clotheshorse, I felt it very needed to discuss the instant but unlikely phenom that is Marilyn's Lindsey Wixson. Months ago, despite being rejected by nearly every agency in New York, the rumour began to spread that Miss Wixson had booked Italian Vogue with Steven Meisel. The story never arrived, but at that instant people began to wonder, who is this girl with the lanky body and bee-stung lips, and should they take a second glance?
It was announced then that Lindsey, who was found by Vision LA, was now with Marilyns in New York. From then, it was a avalanche of prestigious bookings that ended in a European Prada/Miu Miu exclusive and landing the elusive campaign for Miu Miu by Mert and Marcus.
With today's arrival of the Campaign, we couldn't be more impressed, and i find it to be a welcome relief amongst the safe choices and boring ideas of the spring 2010 season. We don't feel Lindsey will be the next Daria or Gemma, but we think for now, she's current and she's ready to do what she can to leave her mark on the fleeting world of high fashion models
Keep both your eyes on this gorgeous American's unique face. Girls like this don't come around daily...

Love your commentary on Lindsey! I've watched this girl grow sense she started in a mall runway competition in KS. Sums it up perfectly, for a change.
