We’ve got an exclusive first look at Canadian fashion mag Flare‘s September cover featuring Lindsey Wixson, and a few shots of the accompanying editorial. Prabal Gurung gets the cover credit, while Wixson wears Prada, Fendi, Rodarte, Altuzarra, and J.W. Anderson in the editorial photographed by Max Abadian and styled by Elizabeth Cabral.
As for what 18-year-old Wixson actually had to say in her cover story, she dished that closing Chanel couture was a “dream” and “very surreal,” that she’s into listening to “90s music” right now like TLC and Fiona Apple, which, considering she was born in 1994 are like oldies for her. Which makes us feel like an oldy. She had more interesting things to say about how hard it is to make friends with other models and why she tries to keep things modest and not have her boobs “printed everywhere.”
On inter-model relationships backstage:
Most of the time I am having fun, but a lot of the times it’s overwhelming. I did the Oscar de la Renta show for resort recently and I didn’t know many of the girls. Everyone has their friends and people who they talk to. I sit back and do my own thing. I mainly talk to girls from my agency because I know them and always see them. It’s kind of hard to get to know the other girls.
On keeping her top on for the sake of her family–and her home town of Wichita, Kansas:
The people around me – especially my parents and my sister, who give me input. I try to visit them every month of every other month, but I’ve been so busy with work. I want to make them proud and I try to keep it pretty modest. The fashion industry always wants something else out of you and you can decide if you want to fall into that or maintain your morals and stay true to yourself. I always think about what the people from my hometown would think of some of my shoots. I care about what my family thinks – they wouldn’t want to see my boobs printed everywhere.
