The year 2023 bestowed upon us the resurgence of Linda Evangelista. On the magazine cover front alone, the absolute icon of modeling covered both American and British Vogue‘s all-important September issues (alongside her supermodel peers), in addition to making for a much-welcomed sight on the covers of WSJ. Magazine, D la Repubblica, The Sunday Time Style and The Travel Almanac.
Not even one week into 2024 and we’ve already got Evangelista gracing V Magazine – we’re off to an almighty start for the new year. Never shy of endorsing models as cover stars, the industry legend fronts V‘s Spring Preview 2024 edition which promises to be an explosion of pure unapologetic fashion and fantasy. Across four highly-stylized and collectable covers captured by Steven Klein and styled by Patti Wilson, Linda cements the fact she is fashion’s ultimate chameleon, partaking in the dynamic and fantasy-filled cover shoot. Showing off her extreme versatility, Linda rocks an array of hairstyles, bold makeup looks and show-stopping creations from the likes of Miu Miu, Ocean Savage, Dolce & Gabbana and Aziz.
Read below the reactions of theFashionSpot’s forum members:
“The resurgence of Linda Evangelista is without a doubt my favorite thing to happen in fashion in recent memory,” raved aracic.
“The first cover is definitely striking. Finally something different from Linda and in full-color,” MModa appreciated.
Vision Ruan echoed the same sentiments, commenting: “I’m glad that Linda stepped out of her comfort zone and showed us something different!”
“Linda just keeps delivering hit after hit,” Urban Stylin declared.
Not everyone, everyone, felt the same way. “Unbearably dated. Why does everything come across so soulless these days?” asked lookatme.
“They’re all kind of awful if you ask me. Linda and Steven have both done so much great work – this just isn’t that,” KoV exclaimed.
“Regardless of the finished product, I feel strongly there’s always just a cause for outright celebration whenever Linda Evangelista makes an appearance. What a way to start 2024!” championed vogue28.
