Over the last 8 years, Lindsey Wixson’s instantly recognizable face has become an industry staple, famous for her tooth-gap and impressive pout. But now, after countless covers, campaigns, and high-profile shows, the 23-year-old has announced her retirement after suffering an ankle injury.

In an Instagram post two days ago, and after a post last month alluding to a problem with her ankle, Wixson has announced that she is retiring from the “high heel business.” Alongside this, she explained her desire to follow her other interests, linking to an Instagram profile that describes her as a “Potter, interior curator, fixture designer.”

We look forward to seeing what Lindsey does from hereon out, but we imagine her next endeavours will be a little quieter than the whirlwind fashion industry, which scooped her out of obscurity aged 15 when she was hand-selected by Stephen Meisel for Italian Vogue.
