linda evangalista, “We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day.”

The ideal of beauty is fickle. Some years you are in, some years you are out. Linda Evangalista has never been anything short of extraordinary.

As with any raving beauty, who knows what she’s worth,  Evangalista has a history filled with French Billionaires, Movie Stars and quotes only a super model could utter:

“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.)

As people, increasingly, try to crawl into the package of beauty via plastic surgery, some gorgeous creatures are just genetically blessed. Linda Evangalista is one of these creatures.

Recently featured on the cover of Love, Evangalista’s beauty beams through the pop art cover. It’s amazing to think the finest pieces of art trace the human form in stone and paint, or capture it in images.  In this example the two merge to create a visually stunning image, merging model and fine art.

Some sizzling facts on Evangalista courtesey of wikipedia:

At the age of 22, Evangelista married Elite executive Gerald Marie.[7] They were married from 1987 to 1993. After separating from Marie, she began a 6-year relationship with actor Kyle MacLachlan, and then divorced Marie.[8]

In 1999, she became pregnant by French soccer player, Fabien Barthez. At 6 months pregnant, she delivered a stillborn baby. The couple then broke up and Evangelista left modelling for several years to recuperate.[9]

On October 11, 2006, she gave birth to a boy, Augustin James, refusing to name his biological father, which sparked numerous rumours.[8] While pregnant, Evangelista appeared on the August 2006 issue of Vogue (magazine).

  1. She lived with Kyle McLachlan in the same building I lived in between 1994-8, and I remember seeing her in the elevator as she was going out to walk their two labradors one evening. She had no make-up on and her hair was a mess. Although she was not what I’d call classically beautiful in that state, what was very apparent was that she was unnaturally skinny and had perfect bone structure and symmetry. My guess is that, in the hands of the right hair and make-up people, her look was infinitely versatile, and I think that is the reason behind her success as a model.
