2010’s Model Of The Year: Lara Stone Or Lindsey Wixson?


Last night at the British Fashion Awards, Lara Stone walked away with the award for Model of the Year. Not a huge surprise, we know. But last weekend, in Sally Singer’s first issue of T Magazine, fellow gap-tooth beauty Lindsey Wixson was featured as the publication’s “breakout” Model of the Year. While these choices are pretty obvious, it got us thinking Which model deserves to be crowned Queen of 2010? Since both contenders are editorially ubiquitous, we’ve compiled their most notable stats below, and used the hard facts to come to a decision.

Based on the above, it seems that the clear winner is Lara, right? Not so fast. Lindsey only broke onto the scene in late 2009, and rose to success faster than anyone we can remember, so it’s a really close call. But, we’ve decided to call this one for Lara. Her Calvin Klein exclusive contract, slew of magazine covers and fairy tale wedding to David Walliams all add up to one pretty great year. Plus, Lara is ten years Lindsey’s senior, so the 16-year-old Miss Wixson has plenty of time to climb to the top. Congratulations, Lara! We’re looking forward to seeing much more of you in 2011 if the Pirelli Calendar preview is any indication, it’ll be another one for the history books.
