Impossible to grow up in the 80s and 90s and not idolise the original supermodels – back when the models were the stars, when they were the only choices to grace Vogue and Elle instead of the Taupes and Anistons that do so today. We used to watch Fashion Television religiously and gush over Christy, Naomi, Tatiana, Cindy, and of course Leeenda.
Linda Evangelista, now 42, had a baby last year, once infamously said she wouldn’t “wake up for less than $10,000 a day". That comment, at the time, lit up a maelstrom of controversy. These days it seems rather innocuous, non?
Here’s Linda in Spain promoting a cosmetics line the other day – older and softer but no less beautiful…with help, of course. Help in the form of Botox which she readily admitted to prior to her pregnancy. Still a world class beauty but now with a real woman’s body and not desperately frighteningly frozen like Nicole Kidman. Me likey.
