Iconic Supermodel Shares Her Beauty Secrets

No offense to Karlie & Co., but they just don't make supermodels like they used to. That's not to say the girls of our current crop aren't gorgeous in their own right — they're downright stunning. But, there's a certain commanding presence that women like Naomi Campbell, Cindy Crawford, and Linda Evangelista exuded on and off the runway that just can't be replicated. In today's age of authenticity, accessibility, and relatability, the kind of spectacle these supers were in the early '90s not only doesn't exist, it can't exist. The world has changed too much, as have our expectations of celebrity.
So, to see the incomparable Evangelista make a grand return to our collective consciousness for the launch of Dolce & Gabbana's Perfect Reveal Lift Foundation and Sheer Radiance Makeup Base brings so much joy to our hearts. Look at her eyes as she stares deep into your soul, seemingly recognizing all there is and all there ever will be. Gaze at her smooth and creamy skin, and marvel at its serenity. We must have this foundation!
Sorry, where were we? Ah, yes: Linda. Unsurprisingly, she's as fascinating to speak to as she is to look upon. In this interview, we learned what mementos she cherishes from her supermodel heyday, what it was like working with two of her biggest fans again, and just why she thinks Kim Kardashian is the Grace Kelly of our time. Yes, you read that right and no, she's not kidding — we double-checked.
