We at LEvangelista.net are thrilled to announce that we've received another ad (sans Talbots logo) from Linda's new campaign with Talbots. In this photo, Linda gets an opportunity to show off her skills by giving us a shot that highlights her understanding of body lines. I'm actually enjoying this photo even more than the first ad with the hat and leapard print coat. Which is your favorite?
Linda's back! After a busy year in 2009, La Linda stepped back a bit from the spotlight (ongoing L'Oreal Paris contract aside) for the first half of 2010 and is now front and center in Talbot's Fall/Winter 2010-11 ad campaign. Talbots? Yes, Talbots. The formerly stodgy retailer has rebranded itself, and in the process has emerged looking mighty fine and refined. And this is no half-hearted effort; Talbots has pulled out all the stops by booking the iconic supermodel along with Mert Alas & Marcus Piggott, currently the hottest photography duo on the planet. This marks the second time that Linda has worked with Mert & Ma
I have promised to scan something more original... so here are pictures from Chloe press file from Autumn/Winter 1994. At that time, Karl Lagerfeld was this brand designer and Chloé press files were set of argentic pictures distributed during fashion shows for collection preview... Being under contract with Chloé for several seasons, Linda posed for several of them.
There will be other updates in August and we also hope first glimpses of Talbots very soon, so don't forget to check Levangelista.net!
Reading the comments below, many of you are wondering where is Linda Evangelista... at Levangelista.net we wonder as well. Didn't she say she would do fashions shows with a cane? In my humble opinion, she just took a sabbatical and doesn't really bother about the competition. There has been this pattern in Linda's work since several years now - she's everywhere all at a sudden, then she disappears for months and then.. she makes a come back. So we might see her around October 2010 or later in Spring 2011.
Oops... I'm forgetting the Talbots campaign. According to BsAs' comment below, it will surface mid August. I have high hopes, but I bet it will be heavily photoshoped - Photoshop is the favorite photography tool of Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott.
In the meantime, Levangelista.net is not on vacations... There are new scans from several 1995 editorials in the galery. You might complain that have already seen and re-seen them... Ok, ok, next week I'll try to upload something more original.
Well, not quite, but close enough. We're pleased to announce that we've added a classic editorial to the gallery in which La Linda convincingly portrays screen icon, Katharine Hepburn. Linda has used her chameleonic talent throughout her long and illustrious career taking on the likes of several entertainment legends, including Sophia Loren, Ava Gardner, Rita Hayworth...
