"We don't wake up for less than 10,000 a day" is the famous quote by Linda Evangelista. Linda, Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington and Cindy Crawford were the fantastic four supermodels in the 90's. Instead of having Al B. Sure( I am really showing my age) on my wall like my other friends, I had these stunning beauties display on my wall. She is a chameleon because she can wear any color or length of hair and can look feminine and androgynous all in one day!
Evangelista was born to Italian parents in St. Catharines, Ontario. She was discovered by a talent agent at the 1978 Miss Teen Niagara Contest and the runway would never be the same again. She is known for changing her look by a drop of a hat. In the late 1980's the model cut all her hair to a little-boy style and was promptly cancelled from all of her runway shows. Within months, she appeared on magazine covers and everyone emulated her hairstyle.
The supermodel is still maintaining her incredible style with edgy and chic pieces. Linda is still in demand with major designers. She was featured in the Prada Fall 2008 Campaign and she is Alber Elvaz, Lanvin head designer, muse. Evangelista's face is priceless and that's why she is the face of L'Oreal cosmetics. She also been honoured with a Hero Award in New York for her commitment in helping to eradicate aids throughout the world.
Evangelista has a unique stunning face that comes around once in a life time and I am fortunate to witness her walk down the runway and appeared on countless covers of fashion magazines.
