Linda Evangelista Page 1
A room of gorgeous people dripping in Chanel and diamonds — could anything be more glamorous? Well, perhaps if the rain had held out, but no matter. The 80th anniversary of Coco Chanel‘s “Bijoux De Diamants” collection was still a sight to behold.
For i-D‘s fall Role Model issue, we’ve been gifted with not one, not even five, but sixteen different covers featuring some major faces. We wonder how long it took to schedule and plan the photoshoots?
Once a supermodel, always a supermodel!
The late Gianni Versace used to show his couture collection at the Ritz Hotel in Paris. His sis Donatella continued the tradition until 2004, and this weekend, she finally returned to Gianni’s favorite spot. As such, we wanted to take a look back at Gianni’s Atelier Versace creations.
In a surprising turn of events, Linda Evangelista and François-Henri Pinault have reached an agreement in regards to child support for their son, Augustin. The duo made the decision via telephone yesterday.
Linda Evangelista and François-Henri Pinault were back in family court on Friday to negotiate child support for their son, Augustin. They’ve been in and out of hearings (publicly, at least) since the supermodel announced that Pinault was the father of her child in 2011. Pinault has reportedly not paid for child support.
Linda Evangelista and her baby daddy François-Henri Pinault were in court on Thursday to negotiate child support for their 5-year-old son Augustin.
Fashion world crushes come and go, but our unapologetic love for stylist and LOVE magazine editrix Katie Grand will probably never die. And that’s because in addition to working on a new exhibit for Louis Vuitton and advising lots of famous people on their wardrobe choices, she still has time to produce a stellar magazine.
What would a Versace for H&M fashion show be without tons and tons of celebrities?
Well, well, isn’t W Magazine the cleverest in all the land? Next month’s issue has us all sorts of impressed thanks to a particularly brilliant Steven Meisel spread.
This was the week we saw Karl Lagerfeld without his signature shades. Frightening! This week was also Shark Week. A whole lot of crimes of fashion were committed — and we’re not just talking about Kate and Prince William‘s matching outfits. Plus, a 10-year-old model ignited a firestorm of industry controversy.
Earlier this week we learned the shocking amount of money Linda Evangelista is fighting to get in child support from her baby daddy Francois-Henri Pinault. And while at first glance the $46,000 a month the model is demanding might seem just a little excessive, the Wall Street Journal has managed to find away to make all the needs of little Augustin James seem downright appropriate.
Just a month ago it was revealed that PPR CEO François-Henri Pinault fathered Linda Evangelista‘s 4-year-old son Augustin James. This was super scandalous! Of course, neither the supermodel nor her high-powered baby daddy ever wanted the secret to get out — that is, until Evangelista took Pinault to Manhattan Family Court for child support.
Last week was Dior’s first couture show in 14 years without John Galliano at the helm. And people hated it. The embattled designer is still awaiting sentencing for his public insult trial, though Bernard Arnault has stated Galliano will never work for LVMH again. That is all to say, his future is uncertain, but we do know a thing or two about his professional past.
This week there were more fancy weddings than you can shake a fallopian tube inspired hat at. There were also lawsuits, a couple big September issue reveals, and the revelation that one very bold-faced fashion name is the baby daddy of Linda Evangelista’s four-year-old son.
You may know François-Henri Pinault as the CEO of PPR, that big ol’ conglomerate that owns Gucci Group, which includes Gucci, Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander McQueen, and Balenciaga. You may also know him as Salma Hayek‘s husband. You probably don’t know him as Linda Evangelista‘s baby daddy. But, hey, he is!
On Monday, we confessed to being dog people brought you pictures of designers with their four-legged friends. And now, we bring you models with their dogs! We don’t know if it’s because models prefer their dogs to be as petite and cute as they are or because these pictures were taken shortly after these ladies got their dogs, but most of the photos feature really small pooches. Linda Evangelista‘s Enzo is the medium-sized dog in our gallery, but that doesn’t make him any less adorable than the others!
Of all the great 90s supermodels, Linda Evangelista may be the most famous for her outspoken attitude and chameleon-like style — which naturally she means she makes for a great interview. During our daily troll for blasts from the pasts, we stumbled upon this 1991 interview with the supe for MTV’s Stylissmo, in which Evangelista justifies her infamous $10,000 a day comment and charitably offers her catwalking services gratis for “up and coming ” designer Herve Leger.
One of the most memorable spreads of the last few years was when Harper’s Bazaar went all cartoony on us with their Simpsons in Paris spread. Linda Evangelista was their guide and Versace, Karl Lagerfeld, Alber Elbaz, Jean Paul Gaultier, and others all made cameos in the illustrated presence of Homer, Marge, Bart and Lisa. Elle Espana has taken a cue from Bazaar and given some of the industry’s most important designers a Disney makeover.
