"To the kids in my salon, the ones that are from nineteen to 25, Linda’s the icon. It's like Oh, God, Linda Evangelista's coming in. Did you ever meet her? She's like their big movie star. She's their dream."
“Inspiration hasn’t been the same without her! She is an enormous influence on all phographers and stylists. For me and Domenico, Linda is the model. If you talk about models of the sixties and seventies, the first name is Veruschka. In the eighties and nineties, it’s Linda.”
“I always take into consideration what Linda is suggesting and saying about the pictures, the clothes, the look. And as a photographer I don’t always listen to everyone.”
“No one models with more conviction than Linda. Her secret, I think, is that she has never been bored by modeling, and never seen it as a stepping stone to another career.”
“She controls every part of her body, and it all has line. Her foot. Her nostril. It’s all working while she’s working.”
"Evangelista has an obvious love of language, and she employs certain words - in both French and English - with skill and a healthy sense of irony. At times she can be very, very funny."
