One of my favourite song ever. Lovely arrangement of two very different and powerful voices.
Lindsey Wixson (born April 11, 1994) is an American fashion model. She is known for her unique looks, defined in part by her "bee-stung lips", "rosebud pout" and gapped front teeth.
At 12 years old, and 5-feet, 7-inches tall, strangers would come up to her to tell her she could be a model, so she started researching it as a possible career. Wixson expressed that modelling really helped build her confidence and is inspired by Kate Moss's fashion style. In 2011 her prom dress was designed especially for her by Jason Wu, the same designer who designed Michelle Obama's dress for the inauguration.
“I was actually always really self-conscious about my gap. In middle school, this group of girls were always trying to beat me up – they called my gap a parking lot. It was a really awkward time. I remember first mentioning to the girls I used to sit next to at lunch that I was looking for a model agent, and then the next week they came in with a list of things they didn’t like about me.”
It’s refreshing to hear models talk about their insecurities, since we’re usually the ones that end up feeling insecure about ourselves after seeing them on runways and billboards.

Blame rapists not victims
Definitely needs to be more awareness about harassment.
"Everyone has a very personal relationship with their body. You live with this thing every day. You grew up with it. It has birthmarks and bruises and acne and battle scars, and holds lots of memories. And perhaps lately you’ve started noticing different things about yourself in the mirror every now and then. It’s not a good or bad thing, it’s just what happens. But still, it’s weird, because it is change, and it does just happen, and without your permission. Which is why it feels so weird when other people start taking notice, also without your permission." -Tavi Gevinson
