Steven Meisel, a major figure in photography, and Canadian supermodel Linda Evangelista have reunited for an exclusive feature in WSJ. Magazine’s Fall 2023 Men’s Style digital edition. Captured in sharp black and white tones, Linda exudes effortless elegance as she reclines on a studio floor adorned with silk sheets. She wears a simple yet sophisticated ensemble of a black sweater from The Row, tights from Wolford and exquisite jewelry from Cartier.
In this issue, time seems to stand still, allowing Linda’s captivating aura to take center stage against a classic black and white backdrop. Dressed in breezy dresses and tops, expertly styled by Karl Templer, Linda presents timeless, chic looks. The shoot is a visual feast, highlighting her undeniable allure and the seamless collaboration between model and photographer.
The magazine also features an exclusive two-part interview with Linda and Meisel, giving readers a rare glimpse into their long-standing friendship and a sneak peek at the book, “Linda Evangelista Photographed by Steven Meisel.” Here, Linda opens up about her personal journey, sharing her battle with breast cancer, which she was first diagnosed with in 2018. She speaks candidly about the strength she has found within, the unwavering support of her son Augustin, her family and friends like Salma Hayek, and her resilient approach to life.
Defining herself as a “survivor on standby,” Linda’s positivity shines through: “I’m so happy to be alive. Anything that comes now is bonus.”
