Saint WIXSON

Lindsey Wixson looks gorgeous in this Chinese Vogue story I worked on with photographer Sharif Hamza. Stylist Julia Von Boehm had a strong idea of how she saw the woman – angelic yet sexy – and the rich gold accessories styled with strong black fashion gave the look a gothic, religious feel. I call hair stylist Shay Ashual the Wig Master, as he makes wigs look so realistic you would never know the model is wearing one. The secret is in the amazing quality hair, which he cuts and colours to perfection. Matching the wig, I bleached Lindsey’s brows. Although it can look quite alien in real life, bleaching brows gives the face a softer look in photographs as it takes away the strong structure lines and doesn’t restrict the eye shape. To make the bleached brows look real and believable, I tanned her skin slightly to bring warmth and a sexy feel. A heavy, extended feline lashline completed the look. Sharif captured the light perfectly to bring out the pureness of Lindsey, and being such an amazing model that really knows her body, she always transforms and becomes the character. So voila, it’s Saint Wixson…
