Linda Evangelista, the legendary supermodel, has made a stunning comeback to the fashion industry with a mesmerizing photoshoot for V Magazine. The 58-year-old icon graces the cover of the magazine’s first issue of 2024, marking her triumphant return after a hiatus of nearly five years. In collaboration with photographer Steven Klein, Evangelista showcases her chameleon-like fashion sense in four celebratory covers, exuding elegance and fierceness.
Styled by renowned stylist Patti Wilson, Evangelista effortlessly transforms for the epic shoot. In one of the photos, she dons a marigold-colored wig, her skin painted gold, and wears a glittering ensemble by Miu Miu. The photo captures her radiating beauty and is accompanied by Evangelista’s heartfelt New Year wishes to her fans.
The cover story, titled “For the Love of Linda,” showcases Evangelista in a lace catsuit with a built-in corset and lace details. She pairs the Dolce & Gabbana look with a burgundy cape and fiery eye makeup that complements her short, red wig. Another shot features Evangelista placing one of her long legs atop a male model, both adorned in D&G outfits, creating a fantastical ambiance.
The fourth photo in the series showcases Evangelista in another lace look, with lace netting framing her face. Her striking features take center stage, with a pale face, bold red lip, and dramatic black eyeliner. The photos highlight Evangelista’s timeless beauty and her ability to captivate the audience effortlessly.
V Magazine describes its upcoming issue as action-packed, with Evangelista joined by other prominent figures such as Kimora Lee Simmons, Molly Ringwald, Alvin Alley, Cat Power, Paloma Mami, Miss Benny, Poppy, and Egyptian actress Tara Emad. The issue will also feature an impressive 18-page editorial capturing dynamic faces in the modeling industry, photographed by rising talent Jack Bridgland.
Evangelista’s return to the spotlight is a significant milestone for the model, who had largely stepped away from the industry after a CoolSculpting procedure in 2015 left her feeling “disfigured.” In July 2022, she settled a lawsuit against Zeltiq Aesthetics Inc., the company behind the cosmetic procedure. Evangelista had claimed that CoolSculpting had permanently deformed her, making it impossible for her to continue working as a model.
Since the lawsuit, Evangelista has gradually made a comeback, featuring in fashion campaigns for brands like Fendi and gracing the covers of WSJ Magazine and Vogue alongside fellow supermodels Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Christy Turlington. She also appeared in the documentary series “The Super Models” on Apple TV+.
Linda Evangelista’s return to V Magazine is a testament to her resilience and enduring beauty. Her captivating photoshoot not only marks her official comeback but also serves as a celebration of her iconic status in the fashion industry. Fans can catch Evangelista’s mesmerizing spread in V Magazine’s V146 Spring Preview 2024, available on January 12th.
