It’s been more than 15 years since Linda Evangelista walked a Fashion Week catwalk. But in New York, in the luxurious setting of the Fendi show, the most emblematic supermodel of the 90s surprised the public of professionals and guest stars. At 57, the Canadian model took everyone by surprise by closing the show of the Italian luxury label. A real event, indeed almost a miracle given the medical disappointments she had suffered in recent months. Linda Evangelista, in fact, had testified in the American magazine “People” about the hell she was going through since she had used the “CoolSculpting”, an extreme fat freezing technique. According to her, the operation had “failed” and had had irreversible side effects, in particular the formation of piles of fat. A story that seems to belong to the past since last July, the star who posed for the new Fendi campaign explained in a post on Instagram: “I’m happy to have settled this matter. I can’t wait for the new chapter of my life to come with my friends and family ”. What a joy, then, to see her again, where it all began for her: on the catwalks.

Linda, eternal icon
After applauding Lila Grace Moss, Bella Hadid on the catwalk and admiring Sarah Jessica Parker, Kate Moss and Lily Allen – all decorated with a Baguette bag – in the front row, the two star designers of Fendi, Silvia Fendi and Kim Jones, came to say hello at the end of the walkway. But it is not a furtive greeting what they will do there, since they will call first Marc Jacobs – a great friend of Jones – who will come to revisit the Baguette bag, then Linda Evangelista. At this moment, the entire audience rises to cheer for the return of the child prodigy at a fashion show. The beauty wears a gigantic oversized turquoise coat and obviously carries on her arm the precious bag created by Silvia Fendi in a silver sequin version. The supermodel, moved, smiled at the crowd before returning backstage. A great fashion moment.
