L.A. native, Marilyn model Lindsey Wixson first caught our attention this past fall as Prada's s/s 2010 show-opener. First there were her lips which, when lacquered up in cinnabar red, took "bee-stung" to a whole new level. Then there were her Madame Alexander doll, woman-child looks that epitomized Miuccia's latest and decidedly more youthful take on femininity. Aside from opening Prada and closing the Miu Miu show where the hair and makeup perfectly played to her features, she walked virtually undetected in NYC for minor labels like United Bamboo, Brian Reyes and Philosophy/Alberta Ferretti.

Word has it that she is Meisel's new fave and will be featured in a Vogue Italia spread in March. And if the past is any indicator (think Linda Evangelista, Naomi Campbell etc.) we'll be seeing a whole lot more in print and soon, on the fall 2010 runways. Her softer yet slightly alien looks might well signal a new sort of beauty for the new decade. Step aside Karlie, Stam (snore...)and all of you Eastern Bloc clones!Judging from her recent work in W she's well on her way to the big-time.
