Linda Evangelista - Biography

 

It was a haircut that did it for Linda Evangelista – or rather, several haircuts and, later, various changes of color. The Canadian model had been modelling for several years, picking up around $600 per shoot for "mediocre" work until she went for the chop and parted with her long, light brown hair.

When British Vogue picked up on some shots Arthur Elgort had taken of her, she went stellar. Years later, after retiring from the modelling scene, she would make a comeback on the cover of the US edition of the magazine that first made her famous.

Born on May 10, 1965, into a large Italian-Canadian family in St Catherines, a small town near Niagara Falls, Linda developed striking good looks and was first spotted while just a teenager at a local beauty contest. An early modelling experience almost made her turn her back on the business, however. While in Japan on a work assignment, she contacted the Canadian embassy and was flown home after being asked to do nude photos. Later, nudity was not something Linda minded.

Evangelista later moved to New York City and signed with Elite Model Management there. She then moved to Paris, France, to further her career. She also appeared in music videos with George Michael.
Evangelista uttered the quote, "We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day" (often misquoted as: "We don't get out of bed for less than..." or "I don't get out of bed for less than...") Spoken in Vogue (1990) to Jonathan van Meter, talking about money and how she and a few other models were calling the shots and changing the game.
In the late 1980s, she cut all her hair off to brandish a little-boy-style haircut and was promptly cancelled from all the important runway shows that season. This was the first of many dramatic hairstyle changes. Within months, she appeared on magazine covers everywhere and many women emulated the hairstyle.
In 2007, she signed a multiple-year exclusive contract with the cosmetics company L'Oreal Paris. It was announced in early 2008 that she would be featured in the Prada Fall 2008 campaign seen in magazines internationally.
She is signed to DNA Model Management in New York City, and Models 1 in London.

Evangelista was married to Elite executive Gerald Marie from 1987 to 1993. She has also dated actor Kyle MacLachlan (1992-1998), French football player Fabien Barthez (1998-2000), Italian oil mogul Ugo Brachetti Peretti (2003-2004), and former Formula One driver Paolo Barilla (2005).
Throughout her career, Evangelista has expressed her desire to have children.
To her delight, on October 11, 2006, she gave birth to a boy, Augustin James. While pregnant, Evangelista appeared on the August 2006 issue of Vogue magazine. She was the first non-actress/singer model to appear on Vogue in over a year.

 

Linda Evangelista - Personal Quotes

 

"It was God who made me so beautiful. If I weren't, then I'd be a teacher."

"I don't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day."

"I don't diet. I just don't eat as much as I'd like to."

"People 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."

[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.
