Karl Lagerfeld described Linda Evangelista in 2001 as “a kind of Stradivarius. You can play her like you can play no other instrument.” Good point there. After all, the Canadian-born beauty was featured on more than 600 magazine covers, many shot by photographer Steven Meisel, for whom she served as a muse. With campaigns like Revlon (1990), Dolce & Gabbana (1992), Chloe (1994), and Yves Saint Laurent (1995) under her belt, Evangelista certainly needn’t wake up for “less than $10,000 a day,” per her infamous phrase.
