Coming of Age

America's sweetheart Lindsey Wixson celebrates her coming of age with a career-defining appearance on the cover of the June/July 2012 issue of French Numéro. The black and white cover image shot by Sebastian Kim, taps into Wixson's sensual side and features the Kansas-native posing languidly in a navel grazing Gucci bathing suit accompanied by a smouldering gaze and tousled hair. For Wixson who turned eighteen in April, the cover marks a distinct departure from the Lolita-esque image that she is renowned for and instead depicts her as a fully grown woman in touch with her sensuality. Wixson began modelling at age fifteen and quickly gained notoriety for her bee-stung lips, toothy grin and doll-like features. Signed with Marilyn Model Management, Wixson looks set to join modelling's major league with photographic duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin who enforce a strict policy of working only with models over the age of eighteen, tweeting enthusiastically at the prospect of collaborating with Wixson on upcoming projects.
