17-year-old model Lindsay Wixson

She is said to be the Model of the Moment. A mind-bending mix of simple teen, beautiful woman and fully-trained firearms handler. And here she is hanging out with a Telegraph reporter during Fashion Week in New York. The late night fittings, 6am starts, layers of different makeup, and three shows with three hour advance call times every day for a week usually leaves the toughest of girls overworked and exhausted. Lindsey Wixson has the added pressure of being just 17-years-old and having only been a fixture at the shows since spring 2010 - when she was on exclusive for Prada and Miu Miu - has not had much time to get used to the craziness.

Sometimes it seems as if all roads lead to Homefront. Here is former Blue Jays Manager Cito Gaston with Homefront's Bonnie Kruger during a visit today. Cito is a big fellow, as you can see, and was in the neighborhood to shop at Kingsport Big and Tall Clothiers just down the street Cito managed the Toronto Blue Jays from 1989 to 1997, and again from 2008 to 2010.
