Linda Evangelista returns to the runway after more than a decade. The supermodel made a rare appearance to close Fendi’s show at the ongoing New York Fashion Week.
The 57-year-old, who walked the runway after 15 years, turned heads as she stepped out at the end of the show in a stunning Tiffany blue taffeta gown.

The delicate gown was styled with diamond earrings and silver silk gloves. She also carried Fendi’s iconic baguette bag – which celebrated its 25th anniversary this year – which took the look up a notch.

She last walked the ramp at the Dior haute couture show in 2007, People magazine reports.
Linda dropped a hint that she would be part of the show in her Instagram post in July as she posted a photo of herself posing with two silver sequin baguette bags, a pair of sunglasses and three pink satin baseball caps.
That same month, she also settled a lawsuit over a botched cosmetic procedure that she claimed left her disfigured. Supposedly, this is the reason why she stayed away from the modeling world.
“To my followers who wonder why I’m not working while my peers’ careers are thriving, the reason is that I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure which was the opposite of what it promised,” she wrote in an Instagram post in September 2021.
“It increased, not decreased, my fat cells and left me permanently disfigured despite two painful, unsuccessful, corrective surgeries. I was left, as the media described it, ‘unrecognizable,'” the post further read.
