The supermodels are making a comeback

41 year old (and heavily pregnant) Linda Evangelista is going to be on the cover of the August Vogue cover.

After over a year of featuring celebrities on the cover of American Vogue, Anna Wintour and co have brought back the Supermodel.

And Vogue aren’t the only ones harking back to the 90s when the “model” reigned supreme in the fashion world. With Kate Moss appearing as the face of practically every high end designer campaign at the moment, and Naomi Campbell still the one to watch on the catwalk (and in the newspaper reports), the Supermodels are back.

Throw in Christy Turlington for the Fall Versace campaign (to be joined by Angela Lindvall, Carolyn Murphy, Daria Werbowy and Jonathan Rhys Meyers) our magazines may not be graced by the young Hollywood crowd anymore.

Linda Evangelista is nearly seven months pregnant, and refreshingly, is not worried about her post-pregnancy figure. “I’m not freaked out at all, I embrace it. I believe I’m doing everything to go through this as smoothly as possible. I’m either doing yoga or exercising every day.”

There won’t be a “comeback” after the baby’s birth, Evangelista says, because she doesn’t plan on ever going away.

I wonder if Vogue paid the $10,000 dollars to lure Linda out of bed

    Its about time that we got back to seeing models on covers. It seems of late, particuarly on m sisters early/ore teen mags, that young soap stars were frequently ‘gracing’ the covers.
    Let the models do what they do, by looking like true fashionistas in shots, and i’m glad htey are coming back

    Yup, the glam and pizazz that they carried with them, as far as i’m concerned, has never gone away….but dont get me wrong, i do so adore also the current batch, namely Gemma, Cole, Giselle…….
