Linda Evangelista once jokingly told the press “I never get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day”, so seemingly someone, somewhere has fished the cash out of their wallet and handed it over, as the legendary supermodel has just announced she will be taking over London’s Cadogan Hall for an intimate ‘audience with’ event bang in the middle of fashion season.
In celebration of her very first book, Linda Evangelista Photographed by Steven Meisel, she’ll be opening up on stage about her personal and professional relationship with the revered photographer, pulling out some of her fave images, and surely laying bare some of the debauchery and gossip that happened on set across the course of the 90s – when the supers slapped on their own make-up, smoked ciggies, and drank endless glasses of champagne backstage.
The announcement comes biting at the heels of recent news detailing the launch date of a long-anticipated Apple+ documentary dedicated to the supers, with Cindy Crawford, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell and Evangelista herself telling their stories in their own words all together for the first time. Set a reminder now: it’s likely to be pretty salacious.
For those in London, Evangelista will whet everyone’s appetite with her Cadogan Hall takeover on September 17, before The Super Models doc drops on September 20. Get tickets here.
