She’s called Lindsay Wixson, created by Steven Meisel or Prada?(Photo:Alasdair McLellan/Styling:Edward Enninful)
I’m not really a model-person or -fan, mostly I tend to look at clothes not the model. The “world” behind making a model though, I find quite interesting. In this case, Ms Wixson is so obviously moulded into a character. Nothing new, I hear you say. But hold on; of the cartoon kind! BETTY BOOP, My all-time favorite, is walking around in the flesh! I really keep on loving this make-believe world called fashion! I’m not sure I want to be in Ms Wixson’s shoes though, but that’s a different story.

I already was in love with Prada’s S 2012 campaign (above),
when Ms Wixson was not fully transformed into Betty yet.
