Lovely Lindsey

September 22nd, 2010 |Posted by contributor

The fashion circus had moved on to London and Milan already, but that didn’t stop the beautiful people from coming out to celebrate Gabrielle Revere‘s portrait series of the luminous young star Lindsey Wixson at Sotheby’s last night. In a group of photographs captured at the castings, fittings, and shows Lindsey worked through in February, Revere documented the blossoming of one of fashion’s brightest young lights. A selection of Revere’s photographs had been seen in Life already, the ones that were more journalistic, intent on capturing the moment at hand, but the ones on display at the auction house were all quiet, intimate portraits, featuring Lindsey’s soft face framed in wispy light. Revere explained that in these images, Lindsey herself was the key, more than anything she did or anything that happened to her. “It wasn’t about the content, it was about the experience,” she explained. And what was it about Lindsey that drew Revere to her? “There was something different about her,” she said, “an innocence, a purity that a lot of the other models don’t have. So much of fashion is about putting on an act, but it’s not like that with Lindsey.” Story Jonathan Shia (all images Gabrielle Revere -rep Cornelia Adams– courtesy of d2publicity)
