Lindsey Wixson, La Femme Libre
Lindsey Wixson’s not abdicating her top-model throne any time soon, but the Wichita-born model revealed last night she’s definitely interested in spreading her wings a bit. In a recent interview with British Vogue, Wixson floated the idea of a singing career. Last night at the Yves Saint Laurent dinner celebrating the brand’s new fragrance, L’Homme Libre, Wixson elaborated on her (many) ambitions beyond the runway.
“I have been listening to a lot of Frank Sinatra lately,” the model told Style.com before dinner at Indochine. “I’m just trying to get my voice to open up because it’s in tune, but I need to project more and I want to work on it.” Practice makes perfect—and no better time than the long hours spent in the makeup chair backstage at shows and shoots. “When I am sitting and getting my makeup done, I will hum and then someone else will starting humming along with me. Then I’m like, ‘Look what I started!’ “
Other projects she’s looking to start: “I also want to learn how to fly a plane,” Wixson said, “and be a pastry chef at some point. I remember my grandma teaching me how to make a pie and how to make fudge—pecan pie is very Kansas. Maybe I’ll do a cooking show? I’ll be like, ‘Bam!’ “
