Linda Evangelista is The Duchess

June 2008 issue of Vogue Italia features a special editorial called “The Duchess”, a character masterfully played by Canadian top model Linda Evangelista. No wonder she is considered a staple of the modeling industry. Along with colleagues Christy Turlington, Claudia Schiffer, Cindy Crawford and Naomi Campbell, “top of the tops” Linda (as Karl Lagerfeld named her) ruled the fashion world in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Her fascinating figure, which carried her “the Chameleon” surname, ads a lot of class to this photo shoot that suggests a fashionable jump back in time.

Personifying a true aristocratic style, Linda poses carefree, in fur jackets, jersey, chiffon, silk dresses, and tweed suits, accessorized with hats, gloves, and little mops dogs.
