SUPERMODEL STRIKES BACK

The recent revival of the supermodel shows no sign of waning and these raunchy pictures of Linda Evangelista are proof.
Photographed for a fashion spread in W magazine the Italian beauty strikes a number of dominatrix-style poses in the 11 pictures entitled ‘Love/Hate’.

 

In a grand manor house setting the narrative follows a designer dressed Linda cavorting with a scantily-clad male model.

 

In one photograph the spandex-wearing supermodel claws at the man’s thighs as she leans over in a provocative pose, dripping in designer clothes – including a Haute Couture Givenchy feather bolero, Yves Saint Laurent sunglasses and jewel-encrusted Balenciaga boots.

In another similarly suggestive pose the 43-year-old grabs at the leg of the trunk-wearing hunk while she lies back in the pool.


 

The photoshoot by fashion photographer Steven Klein is one of many new projects the supermodel (who famoulsy said: ‘We don’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day’) has embarked on recently.

With big name brands turning to familiar faces in the wake of the economic downturn, the 5 ft 9.5″ model is currently fronting Prada’s Autmun/Winter lace look campaign and was appointed L’Oreal’s international spokesperson last November.
The beauty company announced a profit boost of 20 per cent since she appeared in their TV advertisements.

 

Meanwhile, her contemporaries have followed the trend as Claudia Schiffer has returned to represent Chanel and Naomi Campbell fronts the latest Yves Saint Laurent advertising campaign.
