The mod-style crop was called “The Linda” and was to be followed by many different hair styles, and colours – from brown to blonde to fiery red, each season showed a different aspect of the model’s versatility.
Linda is one of the original “big five” fashion models who were photographed on the streets of New York by the visionary photographer Peter Lindbergh.
That 1989 image became the cover of the January 1990 issue of British Vogue and heralded the birth of the supermodel.
The five models on the iconic cover were seen by George Michael who asked them to appear in the video for “Freedom 90” and introduced supermodels to MTV audiences globally.
Linda showed modelling was an art form, not just collaborating with but also inspiring designers and stylists – no wonder she has appeared on over 700 magazine covers worldwide.
Not just a chameleon in the sense she could switch from Maria Callas glamour to pared-down grunge, she was also able to display a variety of emotions through her work, from elegant froideur to vulnerability.
One shoot might see Linda as a fun-loving Sophia Loren character, the next natural and exposed, or tough and androgynous.
Still modelling, on catwalks and in campaigns, Linda has recently become the face and creative director of a new skincare brand called Erasa (sadly not available outside of America, yet).
