Red-headed vixen Lindsey Wixson takes to the lens in this quirky, laugh-inducing shoot which will have you licking your lips as she licks that melting ice cream cone.
Appropriately entitled ‘Ice Hot!,’ the shoot distorts Wixson’s facial expressions to complement the body-hugging, vintage leather styles of Versace that she sports throughout.
