Linda Evangelista is British Vogue’s September issue cover star
Bow down! Styled by editor in chief Edward Enninful and lensed by Steven Meisel, Linda Evangelista poses for the September issue of British Vogue in a stunning array of Chanel, Richard Quinn, Alexandre Vauthier, and Fendi. The gorgeous editorial is notably the 57-year-old’s first since her much-publicized trauma caused by a backfired CoolSculpting procedure. In the piece, the 1990s runway legend tells longtime Voguette Sarah Harris about the ordeal and the emotional toll it took on her after she was left “disfigured” saying, “If I had known side effects may include losing your livelihood and you’ll end up so depressed that you hate yourself…I wouldn’t have taken that risk.” Having since settled a lawsuit with CoolSculpting’s parent company, she’s ready to move on with her life—she’s even recently been named a new season campaign star for Fendi. Harris explains that the mom-of-one is “keen to make clear that for this Vogue cover and fashion story, makeup artist Pat McGrath gently drew her face, jaw, and neck back with tape and elastics.” Evangelista further explains, “That’s not my jaw and neck in real life—and I can’t walk around with tape and elastics everywhere….You know what, I’m trying to love myself as I am, but for the photos…I always think we’re here to create fantasies. We’re creating dreams. I think it’s allowed. Also, all my insecurities are taken care of in these pictures, so I got to do what I love to do.” Read the full feature here.
