Steven Klein Shoots Linda Evangelista for W Magazine

Steven Klein has shot Linda Evangelista for the October issue of W magazine. The shoot, titled Love/Hate, features Linda as a dominatrix character dominating male model Tyson Ballous. These images are provocative, stunning, high fashion, and flawlessly beautiful pieces of art. Steven Klein never fails to deliver an impeccable photo spread and his creative visual aesthetic definitely continues to raise the fashion photography standards bar.

This has definitely been the year of the resurgence of the 90's supermodels which include: Claudia Schiffer and Christy Turlington for Chanel, Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell for YSL, and Linda Evangelista for Miu Miu. I am partial to the supermodels of the 90's as they defined and took fashion to a completely new level of glamour, style, and fabulosity. These women revolutionized the modeling industry by imbuing models with a level of celebrity status that surpassed most traditional celebrities and by drastically re-defining modeling industry day rates. The infamous quote from Linda, "I don't get out of bed for less than $10,000" is clearly justified and warranted by this photo spread as Linda is still clearly a supermodel force to be reckoned with. I wonder which other 90's supermodels will follow this cue and make comebacks....

I totally agree. Linda is my all-time favorite supermodel, and she proves it in this photo spread. No other model even comes close to her. She takes the photos to another level.
