Supermodel and V covergirl Lindsey Wixson has announced that after eight years in the industry, she is retiring from modeling. Known for her bee-stung pout and gap tooth, the supermodel cited an injury that is forcing her to step away from fashion, while announcing that she will be focusing on a new career in design: "I have an artistic side that wants to shine through," she wrote in an Instagram post. "I feel that this disability has come to me with a purpose. To show me that I must carry on. This industry has brought me so much and I am grateful for the lessons I have learned. Now more than ever I feel it is important to listen to my body and the changing times of this industry and move on."
