JOURNALIST:You're a bit of a chameleon. What's your favorite look?
LINDA EVANGELISTA: The current one is always the best!
(I-D, UK 1993)
JOURNALIST: Do tones of Hollywood scripts thunk daily on to your doormat?
LINDA EVANGELISTA: I've had lots of offers, but nothing's really grabbed me. It's a mistake to think a model can be an actress, because the two professions don't have much in common. I could change my mind, if I was offered something that appealed to me.
LINDA EVANGELISTA: An offer from Pedro Almodovar. Please print that very big so he'll see it.

Like the make-up artist, Linda too considers the effect of the overhead daylight in the skylit hall. "It'll cast shadows under my eyes. I'll have to walk with my chin up all the way round and people will say: "She's got that nasty-smell-under-her nose look."
(Vogue UK, 1994)
"Nobody dresses well anymore. It's all too casual and too little effort. Except for Singapore Airlines. I love that uniform."
(The new Observer, UK 2005)
"I don't know what to say about that comment any more. I thought it would go away, but it hasn't. I saw a movie, Mr and Mrs Smith, and there's a line in it where Brad Pitt says he won't get out of bed for less than half a million dollars. That's my line! Only now it's a half a million and a man saying it!"
(Evening Standard, UK, 2005)
"I do always speak up. When I say to a make-up artist, "I think I should fix my lip", or to an editor, "this dress should be pinned here", I'm not insulting them - it's just that after all these years, I can feel when it's wrong. I always give an opinion. Always. I'm not always right of course, but at least I've tried."
(Vogue UK, 1992)
"How it's cut, who cut it, how it moves, the lining...I even like it when it's what I consider to be ugly."
"I got so sick of my face and the flaws."
