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.
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.
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.
