Linda Evangelista Biography

Linda Evangelista (created May 10, 1965) is a Canadian model. She’s among the very skilled and powerful models ever, and continues to be featured on over 700 magazine covers. Evangelista is generally known for being the longtime muse of photographer Steven Meisel, along with for coining the phrase “We do not wake up for less than $10,000 a day.” She holds the record for her multiple looks on the cover of “Vogue Italia”, all which were photographed by Meisel.

In 2006, she appeared on the cover of the novel In Vogue: The Illustrated History of the Planet ‘s Most Well-Known Fashion Magazine as well as model Kristen McMenamy, photographed by Meisel. In August of this year, she made the cover of Vogue, becoming the primary model to appear on such magazine’s cover in over a year. That year, she signed a multiple-year exclusive contract as the brand ambassador for the make-up giant L’Oreal Paris. In May 2008, she made an appearance in the Cannes film festival where she modeled for photographers on the red carpet as well as fellow beauty Aishwarya Rai. Evangelista was subsequently photographed by Meisel for the Prada Autumn/Winter 2008 effort. She also appeared in the September 2008 problem of Vanity Fair to get a feature story on the supermodels titled “A League of Their Own.” In 2009, the Metropolitan Museum of Art held an exhibit known as The Model as Muse: Embodying Vogue which paid tribute to a number of fashion models including Evangelista, and she was about the cover of the exhibition’s accompanying publication. In 2010, she became the newest face of Talbots. Also that month, Evangelista was to the cover of Vogue Italia after a three-year hiatus in the magazine. She was subsequently featured in the publication Vogue: The Editor’s Eye as one trend’s model-muses. That November, she was about the cover of the 35th anniversary issue of Fashion magazine. Several months after, the Spanish fashion brand Loewe selected her to signify its latest scent Aura. Also that month, she was about the cover of Vogue Italia for an issue that observed the 25th anniversary of Franca Sozzani’s tenure as the magazine’s editor in chief. Most recently, she could be observed in the Autumn/Winter 2014 ad campaign for the style brand Moschino.

1Listen to your mother. She was right all a long.
2[In 2005, retracting her statement about not getting out of bed for less than $10,000 a day.] I can't stand the way this follows me around. I said it a long time ago, and I hope today I am a different person. Now I get out of bed for a much better reason. I'm part of a team that raises millions of dollars and raises awareness of HIV and AIDS all over the world.
3People think modeling's mindless, that you just stand there and pose, but it doesn't have to be that way. I like to have a lot of input. I know how to wear a dress, whether it should be shot with me standing or sitting.
4I don't diet. I just don't eat as much as I'd like to.
5"We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day." (Spoken in Vogue in 1990 to Jonathan Van Meter, talking about money and how she and a few other models were calling the shots and changing the game.)
6It was God who made me so beautiful. If I weren't, then I'd be a teacher.
