16-Year-Old Lindsey Wixson Stars in Versace’s Vanitas Fragrance Ads

Lindsey Wixson (Marilyn).

Wichita native Lindsey Wixson continues her ascent into top modeldom with her very first fragrance contract for Versace's Vanitas. Photographer Craig McDean shot the ads for the brand's flagship scent, which will launch in the U.S. in the second half of 2012. Wixson does a solid job looking like a baby Donatella — she's almost unrecognizable in the ad, which features her with long, platinum hair and ultrasmoky eyes. And she certainly looks much older than the high-school junior she is, but if this scent is being targeted to the older Versace woman, costing some 20 to 30 percent more than the average scent, we have to wonder why a 16-year-old teen was chosen as the face.
