Lindsey Wixson (born April 11, 1994) is an American fashion model. She is known for her unique looks, defined in part by her "bee-stung lips", "rosebud pout", and gapped front teeth. She is best known for her campaigns with designers as Chanel, John Galliano, Versace Vanitas, Miu Miu, Jill Stuart and Alexander McQueen.
Wixson was born in Wichita, Kansas on April 11, 1994 to Thomas, who works installing satellite dishes, and Michele, a school bus driver. She has a sister, Kirsten. Wixson inherited her gapped teeth from her father. As a young girl she wanted to be either a chef or a lawyer. In middle school, Wixson was bullied, having her tooth gap called a "parking lot", making her self-conscious about her looks. At 12 years old and 5'7", strangers would come up to her to tell her she could be a model, so she started researching it as a possible career. Around the same time, she was inspired by an article in the Reader's Digest about Bill Gates and other millionaires, stating that "it was talking about how they took the chance and they took their opportunities and they took it to a whole other level". Wixson decided to become a model, and studied old copies of Vogue, looking at the careers of supermodels like Gisele, Christy and Kate. Wixson first signed with an agency in Kansas, Models and Images, who connected her with Vision LA. Her parents made the decision to take out a loan and drive down to Los Angeles.
