You might have seen a small version of these portraits in a 1992 issue of American Vogue. With this diptych published in Karl Lagerfeld's book "Parcours de travail", they gets almost a spiritual proportion. Expressionist painter Andrej von Jawlensky is Karl Lagerfeld's inspiration and the technique, that looks like a polaroïd transfer, is perfect to go from vision to flesh. Make-up is by Stéphane Marais.
ERASA XEP30 - Behind this enigmatic name hides an apparently amazing skincare. Linda Evangelista tells NY mag that she found this product so efficient that she wanted to meet its makers. You might remember that in 2009 Linda has already contributed to the creation of a make-up line for L'Oréal - STUDIO Secrets Professional - and has provided advice and recommendations. Here her involvment goes even further : she tells she visits the lab weekly and is the company first tester. There is a business side to this skincare story also as Linda has joined ERASA Skincare as Vice President and Creative Director. Not to mention she is featured in the new campaign and totally endorses the product. Good luck in this new venture to Linda ! ERASA is a skincare startup created only 1 year and half ago and Linda's a great asset to help it grow.

If you would like to support the cause as well and get Linda's black & white portrait by Bryan Adams, you can purchase Hear the Wolrd limited edition calendar here. Linda's featured in April. Will you be patient to display it in 5 months only ? ;-)
Since the creation of this site in 2006, its team has been focusing on bringing the proof of the number of covers that Linda Evangelista has worked for. With the publishing of the October 2016 issue of Tapas, we have reached 700 COVERS in our galery... and we don't want to stop ! By happy coincidence this cover has the allure of a party !
"30,000 elephants killed a year? #KnotOnMyPlanet Tie a knot. Donate. End the slaughter. knotonmyplanet.org". This is how on 9th of September Linda Evangelista, along with other fashion folks, launched the fund raising campaign for the Elephant Crisis Fund - a joint initiative of Save the Elephants and the Wildlife Conservation Network. A number of artistic initiatives supporting this cause followed suit.
Linda is participating in the new Jeans for Refugees charity campaign to raise funds for refugees around the world. She is one of a hundred different models and celebrities that have donated their jeans to be hand painted by Johny Dar Creations. All proceeds are going to the International Rescue Committee.
Since the site is back online, we have set ourself an obessive objective : publish 700 covers of Linda Evangelista that her Wikipedia page is claiming. Several Linda's fans are giving a helping hand to reach this objective and we would specially like to thank Tito ! We started at about 630 covers a month ago, we are already at 681 covers today.
Yes, we've got some catching up to do but we have some big surprises in store for 2014. Stay tuned! In the meantime, please enjoy Linda's newest Spring/Summer 2014 ad campaign with Patric Love, in which she returns to a hair color we don't often see these days -- platinum blonde!
Last night, you could not miss Linda Evangelista's presence at the WSJ (Wall Street Journal) Magazine Innovator of the Year Awards held at MOMA in New York City. La Linda wore a rather daring but tastefully elegant all-black ensemble, consisting of a see-through blouse perfectly matched with leather skirt and black Christian Louboutin shoes. The hair was typical Linda, pulled back into a no-frills bun. Utter perfection.
The first thing we noticed was the hair. Linda's hair is getting long! And while we admire the long locks, we also remember why she is known as "fashion's legendary chameleon". And the first thing we always ask when her hair gets long is, "How long before she gets that 'itch' and cuts it again?" Hmmmm. :-)
Last night in New York, Linda joined Karl Lagerfeld and his Chanel posse to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Chanel's Bijoux De Diamants Collection with the guests dressed elaborately in -- what else -- CHANEL. Linda, herself, was sharply dressed in a two-piece tweed Chanel suit.
The Lifestyle Mirror is reporting that a piece of fashion history was sold yesterday in New York for a remarkable price. Steven Meisel's "Walking in Paris", with Linda Evangelista and Kristen McMenamy valued at an estimated $40,000-$60,000 USD sold yesterday for a whopping $86,500 USD at Phillips de Pury & Company's auction! The photo originally appeared in the groundbreaking editorial titled "Time For Change" in the October 1992 edition of Vogue (USA), and later reprinted in 2006 as the cover of the Rizzoli-published book, In Vogue: The Illustrated History of the World's Most Famous Fashion Magazine. You can read more of its catalogued description here.
... or has she ever left ? Anyway, the supermodel graces the November issue of Canadian magazine Fashion to celebrate their 35th anniversary. And what an amazing cover, nothing to do with the uninspired minimum service May 2008 issue. Oops, I almost start to imitate Shana and her incredible range of superlatives. :tongue: :smile:
Please come back! There are too many Linda's news. I'm just an aging Linda's fan and can't keep the pace! Two of use would be better.
There were massive anti austerity protests in Madrid this week. By an ironic agenda twist, Linda was there as well. She was holding protest signs on the cover of W special Art issue in 2009, however we are not sure she joined the march in the streets of the Spanish capital. Indeed, Linda was in Madrid on an assignement that looked like LOEWE spring/summer 2013 advertising campaign!
Katie Grand, LOVE magazine editor, also labelled as "super-stylist", has collaborated with Hogan on a collection of accessories called "Gang". It will be available in stores in January 2013. In the meanwhile, an army of supermodels joined forces to carry out its promotion: Alessandra Ambrosio, Saskia de Brauw, Edie Campbell, Cara Delevingne, Magdalena Frackowiak, Dree Hemingway and Jessica Stam among others. Linda is part of them!
These ladies have a kind of regressive moment wearing college girls trainers and doll-like design purses, bags, pumps and sunglasses in colorful colors. Looks like sportswear meeting Hello Kitty on a sexy R'b'B sound track. Linda is showcasing probably the most daring piece of the collection - sunglasses with large pink plastic frames. Yo !!! :-)
You are not day dreaming actually, you didn't travel back in time (Internet was not so common at that time), you are not having visions and don't need to rush to your ophthalmologist. It is just the magic of hair styling by Luigi Murenu, makeup by Stephane Marais, photography by Daniela Duella & Iango Henzi and probably an anonymous digital helper that resutrected a 1991 Linda. Hmmm... there might also be a bit of Linda herself in that picture. Enjoy! :-)
After Russian Interview magazine, Linda is also gracing the cover of the German version of this Andy Wahrol's publication. Photography is still by Daniela Duella & Iango Henzi but a different image is chosen for the cover... So let's not deny ourselves the pleasure of endless reprints that grow the Linda's cover count :-p
In this lucky September month, Linda is also looking at you from the September issue of Vanity Fair Spain and talks to you in the matching interview. Photographer Norman Jean Roy seems to be a high-profile celebrity portraitist used to capture Hollywood glamour in narrative settings. He worked for the 120 anniversary issue of US Vogue shooting the most influencial people in the spotlight. For him, La Linda becomes an actress on set. Which is not surprising as she always considered the modelling job as acting but in stills.
