Scandals, Linda Evangelista: in the hell of cosmetic surgery
LISTEN TO THE PODCAST
If we were to mark the beginning of the supermodel phenomenon, Linda Evangelista's name would come first. Often considered the original member of this clan, it is also she who has made the most magazine covers: more than 700... Throughout her immense career as a supermodel, Linda Evangelista has been nicknamed "the chameleon". She could transform into any woman, for any shooting, any couturier... It is also thanks to this versatility that his career has reached the top and lasted so long. But sadly ironically, it was a botched plastic surgery that later "disfigured" her in her own words, ending a career that enshrined her as one of the greatest models in history.
