The cult model of the 90s is back on the cover of Vogue, the magazine that helped launch her career.
The photo reveals the face of a smooth, satiny, impeccable fifties. No wrinkle seems to reach it. British Vogue's September issue features her in full red, her face wrapped in faux leather fabric, topped with a hat. Top model Linda Evangelista, 57, made her debut on the catwalks of the most prestigious luxury brands in the late 1980s. She was one of the greatest top models of her time, alongside Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford or Naomi Campbell, and posed for the lens of the late Peter Lindbergh. Thirty years later, and after painful aesthetic operations which she considers to have come out "deformed", she is reborn.
"I try to love myself as I am, but for the photos… I think we're here to create fantasies. We create dreams. All my fears were taken into account during this shoot,” said Linda Evangelista. On social media, the model also expressed her gratitude to the British magazine. She certifies that she was "surrounded and supported" by the "best team". His special thanks go to editor Edward Enninful, as well as Steven Meisel (photographer), Guido Palau (hairstylist) and Pat McGrath (makeup artist), who agreed to polish his disfigurement.

Inside the issue, Linda Evangelista reveals her doubts. “Am I mentally cured? Absolutely not,” she confesses. She also says she can no longer look at herself in a mirror or allow anyone to touch her body. And for the sequel: “I miss my job so much, but honestly, what can I do? It's not going to be easy. You're not going to see me in a bathing suit, that's for sure. It's going to be difficult to find work with these things that protrude from me, without retouching, or without slipping into girdles, taping parts of my body or compressing them…"
