Lindsey Wixson, 16-Year-Old Model, Strikes A Pose For W (PHOTOS)

W magazine put together a spread American fashion's looks for spring for its January issue, showcasing our homegrown designers like Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Thakoon and Alexander Wang. And while we love the pairing of draped duds and sneakers, we can only focus on one thing: Lindsey Wixson.

The 16-year-old model who took over the spring runways and just landed a Versace campaign is now slowly conquering the magazine circuit. What were you doing when you were 16? Yeah. Us, too.
