#SPOTTED: LINDA EVANGELISTA IN TORONTO AT HOLT RENFREW
LINDA EVANGELISTA forever changed the game in Fashion throughout the late ’80s and ’90s, ascending to one of the world’s first ever Supermodels. You may have heard the phrase, “”We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day”, said famously by Evangelista, and the trickle effect of this is that it was instrumental in a movement to command higher pay for models.
In her illustrious career, the St. Catharines-born star has graced over 700 magazine covers, while being the muse for influencial brands like Chanel and Versace. She’s appeared in music videos for iconic George Michael and is mentioned in RuPaul‘s timeless classic “Supermodel“.
She is back in Toronto to speak in support of her new Photobook LINDA EVANGELISTA PHOTOGRAPHED BY STEVEN MEISEL, the famed Photographer known best in Pop Culture, for Madonna’s book “SEX“. Her and Meisel are known for some of Fashion’s most recognizable photographs over the years.
She signed copies of the Photobook, which is valued at $200 CAN, meeting fans at Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street last night, drawing a crowd at the table, before meeting fans inside Holt’s Cafe for the latter part of the event.
Evangelista will speak at an in-conversation with Canadian fashion icon Jeanne Beker tonight at Bluma Appel Theatre.

#FIRSTLOOK: “THE SUPERMODELS” ON APPLE TV+
Apple TV+ yesterday confirmed they’ve ordered a new DocuSeries produced by Brian Grazer centering around the lives and rises of some of the greatest Supermodels of our time.
“The Supermodels” travels back to the 1980s, when four women from different corners of the world united in New York. Already forces in their own right, the gravitas they achieved by coming together transcended the industry itself. Their prestige was so extraordinary that it enabled the four to supersede the brands they showcased, making the names Naomi, Cindy, Linda, and Christy, as prominent as the designers who styled them. Today, the four Supermodels remain on the frontlines of culture through activism, philanthropy, and business prowess. As the fashion industry continues to redefine itself – and women’s roles within it – this is the ultimate story of power and how four women came together to claim it, paving the way for those to follow.
More details to come!
