For the ever important September issue, 18 year old supermodel Lindsey Wixson lends her perfectly puckered pout and signature gaped tooth to Flare magazine. Reminiscent of 70’s glamour Wixson wears a mixture of pieces from Prabal Gurung’s fall 2012 collection for the cover.
Making the cover of Canada’s top fashion magazine is definitely another highlight of the year for the young model who has already starred in several campaigns and walked in all the top designers runway shows including a starring role as the bride at the Chanel show.
In the interview accompanying the Fendi, Balenciaga and Michael Kors clad editorial Lindsey talks backstage, staying grounded and the business of fashion. Check out the highlights below:
On the scene backstage as a model:
“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. It’s not like how it used to be where you used to have three days to shoot and editorial. We’re all so crunched for time. I feel like the demand for advertising is so much greater and it’s hard to keep up. It’s great, but it’s nonstop.”
On staying grounded:
“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.”
On the business of fashion:

Easy, wearable and styled to perfection and exactly what I have come to expect from Flare editorials. Each studio shot portrays the same young model stepping into the stylist shoes various fashion savvy positions such as a blogger, fashion editor, model scout, and socialite.
Seriously though, this editorial had me at those to-die-for purple paint drip Prabal Gurung trousers that I always gush about.
Trending: Tailored Shorts For Spring
I wear shorts all year round. Anyone who knows me is aware that my winter wardrobe tends to consist of dresses, skirts and shorts with various nylons worn underneath. This due to the fact that I stand at 6’ and sadly most covetable trousers do not reach the full length of my legs. So as one would guess I am a very big fan of shorts during the summer months as well (obviously).
One thing I was very excited to see trending throughout various collections during spring 2012 fashion month were tailored, structured shorts in various pastels and jewel tones and other summery hues and in leather (not very practical but lovely), silk and cotton. I cannot wait to get my hands on some new pairs to style with structured blazers for a twist on a professional look, with oversized loose tees or structured tees with the also on trend peplum.
Some of my favourite stand outs shorties could be seen at Chloé, Prabal Gurung and the sporty Stella McCartney versions. Overall some great twists on a common wardrobe staple, just enough to make them feel more interesting than ever.

- New York Fashion Week Fall 2012
After giving us what I consider to be one of the best collections of the New York Fashion Week spring/summer 2012 season Gurung did not disappoint.
The beginning of the collection is pure darkness achieved through the use of heavy black leather, deep yet vibrant blue hues, and silvery details. The harnesses were carried over from his previous collection while the purple digital prints were replaced with cobalt blue ones. Flirty tunics and mini dresses were paired with perfectly tailored flare legged trousers while a darkened version of his sultry mesh peek-a-boo cocktail dresses made a reappearance. Many of the looks from the first half of the collection were finished off with military visors and slick hair.
The second half of the collection however was ethereal and full of lightness. Yellow tones, gold lame and various shades of creamy whites coated the garments. The collection came together at the end with the star of the spring/summer 2012 campaign, Candice Swanepoel, wearing an over the top ostrich feathered, heavily embroidered sheer tulle gown.

I am definitely not a fan of her with dark hair but I will overlook it because these images are so dynamic and I was such a massive fan of this collection so I really could not be happier.

Lavender, florals and paint drips paired with sheer fabrics and strappy leather makes up this seasons collection. The sexy cutouts and sheer overlays are reminiscent of Stella McCartney last season. This is for sure one of my favourite collections thus far at fashion week. I cannot wait for these pieces to filter down into editorials.
