Welcome back to FASHION FOCUS ladies and gents! I always appreciate your visits
There are many models out there…. so many. However, not many of them deserve to be called Supermodels. I am not the one that claims to be the expert on models, modeling, or the business in general. BUT, I do know that there are models that will stand the test of time and outlast those that come and go with each new collection. One of these superpowers is the one-and-only Linda Evangelista. (applause applause applause applause applause)
The name “Evangelista” leaves a pleasant taste in my mouth! It’s always sounded so appealing and fanciful. (Hey, do you think “fashionista” got its roots from the sound of Evangelista?) Linda Evangelista is a Canadian-born model that has been featured on over 600 magazine covers, and naturally there is much more work to consider. Evangelista is mostly known for being the longtime muse of photographer Steven Meisel, but well-known worldwide nonetheless. Evangelista began modelling when she was discovered by Elite Model Management at the 1978 Miss Teen Niagara beauty pageant. She moved to NYC and signed with Elite model management and was later convinced by fashion photographer Peter Lindbergh to cut her hair short. The haircut became a defining moment in her career, but it didn’t exclude tears from Evangelista. (So for the Top Model fans AND foes, give the girls that cry over their hair a tiny break…. Linda cried too.)
Undeniably beautiful, striking in every way, great in any hair color, and always major! (I love her most in her natural color, and platinum, just sayin’.) ….. Linda serves like no other and there is TONS of proof….. take a look at these images…
A young beauty, she gave you stunning face. (Perm notwithstanding. above, I KNOW you saw that perm up there)
Often misquoted, Evangelista once said, “We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day” ……
Linda Evangelista is shot by the photographer Steven Klein, styled by Edward Enninful for the September 2012 issue of W Magazine. The 47-year star poses dressed like a superhero. Her head styling is made by Julien d’Ys. Makeup by Peter Philips for Chanel. Set design by Jack Flanagan at the Magnet Agency. This proves that she is STILL RULING!!!! See for yourself…
a site featuring a list of Linda quotes. Even a version of the quote I mentioned earlier is on there! Check it out if you got a sec
That iconic name, the striking and flawless face, all those covers, and the photos the photos the photos! Linda Evangelista will always be in vogue, on Vogue and in demand. her long-lasting career seems to have the ability to last as long as her long-lasting good looks. Any model should only hope to maintain a career that could even hold a candle to that of Linda’s. Keep in mind, I didn’t even dive into her acting career, her scandalous love life, or child support disputes! Keeping it FOCUSED on her beauty and talent as a model, her versatility is astonishing. Her longevity is inspiring. Her legacy is still living and looking great considering those superhero images you just experienced above.
Thank you Linda, for showing these children how to earn that respect. Looking forward to all your future endeavors!
From the FASHION FOCUS headquarters, continue to keep it FOCUSED and as always…
