Out of the Humidor
From the Print Edition:
Linda Evangelista, Autumn 95
(continued from page 6)
The article "Ladies and Cigars" in the Summer issue took me back to a hot August night last year at Giants Stadium.
The Rolling Stones were about to open their Voodoo Lounge show. I was there with four good friends, and in a rare moment of sexism on my part, I offered Steve, Mike and Tim Arturo Fuentes, and excluded Brigitte. Suddenly, she looked at me, saying, "And what? I can't have one because I'm a woman?" I quickly handed her a Fuente and she proceeded to light up.
As Mick completed his first song, Brigitte turned to me and said, "I can't believe I'm at a Rolling Stones concert in Giants Stadium with a Roman Catholic priest, smoking a cigar." She was right. It didn't get much better than that.
Since then, I have repented of the sin of sexism, and Brigitte and I have enjoyed many Arturo Fuentes together.
Thanks for Cigar Aficionado. It is a class act!
