Supermodel Linda Evangelista loves her job, a glass of wine and a good cigar.
From the Print Edition:
Linda Evangelista, Autumn 95
(continued from page 6)
She adores wine. "I'm really into wine," she says. "I have at least a glass a day. Sometimes two. Sometimes more. I especially like French wine. My favorite is Lynch-Bages. Actually, my favorite is Petrus, but I can't afford to drink it every day."
Pretty soon, though, considering her still growing success, Petrus may well become an everyday event. And so may a good cigar.
She takes a final sip of her wine. The interview is over. She gets up, pushes away her chair, and heads out of the garden. Heads turn. Linda Evangelista, supermodel, is making her exit, graceful as ever. She is something to appreciate, and to be appreciated. A model of perfection.
