Linda Evangelista booking
Born in Canada in 1965, supermodel Linda Evangelista began her career in her teens, working for a
local department store. After getting noticed at a small modeling contest, Evangelista began doing
international work. By the mid-1990s, she was one of the most sought-after faces in the modeling
world. Raised in a traditional Catholic family, Linda Evangelista was born May 10, 1965, in St.
Catharines, Ontario, Canada, a small town near Niagara Falls. She began modeling in her early teens
after landing some catalog work for a local department store. When Evangelista was 16, a talent scout
from the Elite New York Agency spotted the young model at the Miss Teen Niagara Contest. Modest
work soon came her way, including a few international opportunities. But Evangelista’s modeling
career nearly came to a screeching halt after she was asked to pose nude at a shoot in Japan. She
refused, and then called the Canadian embassy to fly her home, ready to give up modeling work for
good. It was only after graduating from high school and listening to the advice of her mother that
Evangelista decided to give modeling another try.
In 1984, Evangelista moved to New York in hopes of ramping up her career. She bumped along for
the next several years doing what she later described as fairly “mediocre” work. Then, in the fall of
1988, accepting the advice of photographer Peter Lindbergh, Evangelista famously cut her long, light
brown hair into a shorter bob. This new look shocked the fashion world, and organizers canceled 16
out of 20 shows she was scheduled to do. But then, something funny happened. Everyone started
talking about her new look, and with that notoriety came work. Soon, as Evangelista later recalled, she
had “every Vogue cover around the world…and then people came around and decided they liked the
short hair.” As one of the world’s most recognized faces, Evangelista wasn’t immune from becoming a
bit of a diva. In 1990 she uttered a line that went down in the annals of fashion history when she said
that models like herself don’t get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day. The comment certainly
earned plenty of groans, but it did little to diminish her stature in the modeling world. In 1997,
Evangelista received a special lifetime achievement award at the 1997 VH1 Fashion and Music
Awards. In addition, MTV ranked Evangelista second in its list of top models of the 1990s.
After briefly retiring from the catwalk in 1998, Evangelista returned to modeling in 2001. She’s
continued to work well into her forties. In 2012 she appeared on the cover of the Italian edition of
