Linda Evangelista, 57, Has Her Face & Neck Taped Back For British ‘Vogue’ After ‘Botched’ Surgery
Linda Evangelista will always be beautiful but the 57-year-old supermodel has glued her face and neck back on the new UK September cover Vogue. Linda had to undergo “excessive” surgery after her injury after undergoing a CoolSculpting treatment to remove fat cells. On the cover, Linda covered her head and wore a hat but still looked very beautiful.
On the cover, Linda swings a red patent leather head scarf tied under her neck and adds a matching bucket hat on top. Her face looks flawless and radiant, however, she revealed to the magazine that the makeup artist, Pat McGrathglued to her face, jaw and neck back.
Linda revealed, “It’s not my jaw and neck in real life – and I can’t walk around with bandages and belts everywhere. You know, I’m trying to love myself the way I am, but for the pictures. Look, for pictures, I always thought we were here to create fantasies. We are creating dreams. I think it’s allowed. Also, all my insecurities are addressed in these pictures, so I got to do what I love to do. “
Although Linda took a beautiful cover photo for Vogue, she admits that she doesn’t feel completely fine. “Am I mentally cured? Absolutely not,” she said. “But I’m grateful for the support I get from my friends and from my industry… You won’t see me in a swimsuit, that’s for sure. It’s going to be hard to find work with things I don’t like; without editing, or squeezing everything, or typing in everything, or compressing or tricking…”
Linda revealed in a statement via Instagram in September 2021, that she received a Zeltiq CoolSculpting procedure and was “cruelly disfigured.” She continued, “It did the opposite of what it promised. It increased, not decreased, my fat cells and left me permanently disfigured despite having undergone two painful, unsuccessful revision surgeries. I was left, as the media described it, “unrecognizable.”
Linda shared with Vogue that she feels pressured by the plastic surgery ads to get the treatment, as she says, “Those CoolSculpting ads come on over and over, on CNN, on MSNBC, over and over and they ask questions. , ‘Do you like what you see in the mirror?’ They are talking to me. It’s about stubborn fat in areas that can’t be moved. It said no downtime, no surgery and… I took the potion, and I’m going to be a bit useless for me. So I went for it – and it backfired. “
While finally having the procedure, she admitted that she regrets it, revealing, “If I had known the side effects could include losing your livelihood and you’d end up depressed level of hating myself… I didn’t take that risk.”
