Original “SUPERMODEL” Linda Evangelista is a timeless beauty. We dug in the crates for shots dating back to 1985 and found photos for every year since. Check out how this model evolved (or stayed the same) throughout the years!
This is the oldest photo we could find of Linda Evangelista. Check out this dress from 1984!
In just one year it seemed her style increased. This 1985 photo suggests she was getting a bit more comfortable in front of the camera.
She seemed to be pinching herself to see if this was really happening in 1989 when her name became a household name. Supermodels were on the rise, and she was one of them!
And then it happened. She landed the Hermes campaign in 1990.
She upped her glam game and became a fierce model.
Linda landed one of the most famous modeling campaigns to date when she appeared in this Gianni Versace ad. Second to Calvin Klein ads, this is a favorite ad from the 90s!
Called it a ‘success’! Linda Evangelista appeared on the cover of Vogue in 1991.
Look at that hair! In 1992 she became the face of L’Oreal, and she remained the face of the company for over a decade.
Her photos began to get even more daring in 1992.
Vogue Italia showcased top supermodels having a pillow fight. She had one of the feature placements.
Like a scene out of ‘Clueless’ the girls struted their stuff in this 1994 editorial. This marked her 10 year anniversary as a known model, which goes to show just how long people can last in the industry.
Then in 1995 she landed a Dolce & Gabbana campaign.
This Donna Karan ad is striking.
Things started to slow up a bit. But even in 2004 she landed this Fendi cover! Take that!
Oh look…Escada in 2007. We loved when Escada was hot!
Look at her, Simpson-fied in 2007!
Three years ago in 2009 she was featured in a John Galliano ad.
And this year she landed the cover of LOVE magazine, a favorite magazine of ours.
Throughout the years the Canadian model remained an industry go-to. As part of the original “Supermodels”, Linda is known for her hair and eyes. She has far too many credits to list, but one worth noting is her dedication to HIV and AIDS research.
