The Top 10 American Models To Watch Out For in 2018 – No 8. Lindsey Wixson

Lindsey Wixson

With the new year having officially arrived, its time to take a look at those models who are likely to cause the greatest sensation. From January 3 to January 16, we’ll be revealing the names of models we expect to see everywhere this year.

Top model lists are about as arbitrary as anything and totally at the whims of those who put them together. Unlike other rankings, which include subjective criteria in their assessments, we’ve computed the list scientifically. Hence, we’ve rounded up the top 10 American models who have taken 2017 by storm: from their catwalk presence to their street style.

Taken from the IFDAQ ‘American Models National Rankings’ list, it serves as a cheat sheet for supermodel historians out there. These refreshingly eclectic mix of models mean business. Not only have they made an impression throughout 2017, but are anticipated to define the upcoming seasons in fashion.

Fashion industry wunderkind Lindsey Wixson ranks at No 8. She is best known for her million-dollar gap-toothed smile and her unique look, which is characterized by her bee-stung lips and rosebud pout. The Karl Lagerfeld muse start her modelling career in 2009 and soon after was proclaimed as the world’s biggest rising fashion model star.

Over the last few seasons, Lindsey has been running exclusively on the catwalk, which is why her modelling career is mainly driven by a strong fashion media impact and advertising value. She has walked for the likes of Prada and Miu Miu and been the face of Chanel, Versace, and Fendi. Since the beginning of her career, Lindsey has covered a walk of nearly 26 km on the runway.

In June 2017, she announced her retirement from modelling due to a foot injury to pursue new endeavors in interior design and ceramics. For the sake of Fashion in general, we hope her retirement is temporary.
