There are many models out there, but it’s hard to recall who’s made a bigger splash faster than the 16-year-old Kansan Lindsey Wixson, who charmed Miuccia Prada into two Miu Miu ad campaigns and an opening slot at Prada. (She’s tread the boards for Versace, Missoni, and Oscar de la Renta, too.) W dedicated a full two-page spread to her pillowy lips and gap teeth, even at a fashion moment when competition in that particular arena—think Lara Stone, Georgia May Jagger, and Ashley Smith—runs high. We’ll likely be seeing more of her on the New York runways in the coming weeks, but starting tomorrow, you can catch her at Sotheby’s, too. An all-Lindsey show, I Remain, You Desire, by photographer Gabrielle Revere, who shot Wixson for her Life magazine profile last year, runs through the 21st.
