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.
"She’s like an instrument. She's a kind of Stradivarius. You can play her like you can play no other instrument. She's strong and at the same time flexible. She's tough and very touching, and that’s the secret of her success."
--Karl Lagerfeld, speaking about Linda Evangelista, Vogue Sept 2001
Karl Lagerfeld has tapped Linda Evangelista to star in his Spring/Summer 2012 Chanel Eyewear campaign. The gorgeous new ads are the result of what happens when you put two polished professionals together. A perfect match made in fashion heaven. After seeing the fine work on these ads, we can't help but wonder whether or not Mr. Lagerfeld will be placing La Linda front and center for the Fall/Winter 2012 campaign for Chanel's main line.
