A retrospective piece on Linda's Vogue Italia covers is past due. There are a total of 32 covers. Aside from the remarkable number, a study of each cover can be quite fascinating, especially when one considers that the first was photographed 23 years ago in 1989. Steven Meisel's photographic style has evolved, and Linda's evolution is nothing less than extraordinary. Eyebrows going from thick to thin, the ever-changing hair color and style changes. A different Linda emerged with each cover, from looking boyishly beautiful with her famous crop in February 1989, to a more mature Southern Italian look with the strong nose in the latest May 2012 edition. In the September 2001 issue of American Vogue, fellow supermodel Amber Valletta remarked, "Linda probably loves modeling more than anyone I know. That's why we all love looking at pictures of her." We couldn't agree more. Click on each cover thumbnail for a closer look!
Actually, it's a whimsical take on Linda's cover appearance for the May issue of Vogue Italia. Unfortunately, we're still unable to post comments, but please ENJOY the video...!
