Wixson began her modeling career in 2009 when she signed with Vision Models in Los Angeles. In June she went to New York where she was rejected by IMG Models and several other agencies because casting directors thought her looks would not translate well on and off the runway, except for one: Marilyn Agency.  At just 15, she was hand-selected by Steven Meisel after finding a video of her on Models.com and booked her for Vogue Italia, her first job. Her runway debut was at the Spring 2010 New York Fashion Week walking for Cynthia Steffe.

 

Wixson then went to Milan where she opened the spring 2010 Prada show and then closed for Miu Miu in Paris, both as exclusives, thus making her one of the most successful newcomers that season. By September, W editor Stefano Tonchi ran a full-page close-up of her lips and the gap in her teeth, her two most arresting features, in his first issue of W magazine.  She then became the face of Miu Miu’s Spring 2010 campaign shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.  A press release about the campaign called her the “embodiment of a free-spirit on the cusp of womanhood” (she would stay with the brand for a two-season run). But, Wixson has her limits in what she models, during a W editorial shoot titled “Run of Show” shot by Craig McDean she requested a bra because her top was see-through, W notes that a lot of models wouldn’t have done that.

 

LIFE magazine photographed Wixson as she worked at New York Fashion Week. The story chronicles the life of how a 15-year-old teen model navigates her way through fittings, hair, makeup and the runway.  She ended the season with the fall/winter campaigns for Miu Miu, Jill Stuart Beauty, Barney’s, Versace Vanitas Fragrance, and Galliano.  She also walked in a combined 44 shows in New York, Paris and Milan in the fall.  And booked her first major magazine cover, for the i-D fall 2010 issue.
