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.
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.
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.
... or has she ever left ? Anyway, the supermodel graces the November issue of Canadian magazine Fashion to celebrate their 35th anniversary. And what an amazing cover, nothing to do with the uninspired minimum service May 2008 issue. Oops, I almost start to imitate Shana and her incredible range of superlatives. :tongue: :smile:
Please come back! There are too many Linda's news. I'm just an aging Linda's fan and can't keep the pace! Two of use would be better.
There were massive anti austerity protests in Madrid this week. By an ironic agenda twist, Linda was there as well. She was holding protest signs on the cover of W special Art issue in 2009, however we are not sure she joined the march in the streets of the Spanish capital. Indeed, Linda was in Madrid on an assignement that looked like LOEWE spring/summer 2013 advertising campaign!
This would be Linda's return as face of Loewe after being their spokeperson from 1989 to 1992 ! Which is a great news, as these campaigns delivered pictures of an amazing elegance. Looking forward for them to appear in the magazines.
