June 2008 issue of Vogue Italia features a special editorial called â€œThe Duchessâ€, 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, â€œtop of the topsâ€ Linda (as Karl Lagerfeld named her) ruled the fashion world in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Her fascinating figure, which carried her â€œthe Chameleonâ€ 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.
The refined interiors enhance this vintage chic mood well captured by talented fashion photographer Steven Meisel.
