We couldn’t help but rejoice when we saw the supermodel to end all supermodels, Linda Evangelista, showing up in the latest Chanel eyewear campaign.

Have a look back at some of our favorite Linda + Chanel moments, and be sure to share yours in the comments!

The way Stephen Gan tells it, the story behind V Magazine‘s Sports Issue extravaganza starring Stephanie Seymour is the stuff of fashion legend. “Carlyne Cerf De Dudzeele came by V a few days after New Year’s and talked about running into Stephanie Seymour in St Barts over the holidays and said how amazing she looked,” Gan tells MDC “48 hours later, I was standing in a studio and here she is…. fresh from her beach holiday, all sun-tanned and gorgeous!”

Have a look at Sebastian Faena‘s scuba-chic shots of the always iconic Miss Seymour (view the full story on be sure to check out V’s Sports Issue when it hits newsstands Thursday March 1st!

Just who is this Brazilian beauty?

And from the Imagist (if you missed these stories): Tyson Ballou looking like the supermodel he is still; i-D magazine issue 300 is guaranteed to be multi covers again; Abbey Lee Kershaw in Gucci– the commercial (who by the way looks like she has the superpower of moving the wind, a la X-Men or Heroes)

Classical Revival

December 16th, 2008 |Posted by Janelle

Spring kicks off early for ad-dicts. With the S/S 09 campaigns debuting in January magazines we are beginning to notice a theme. It would appear fashion is once again embracing its time honed traditions. From Raquel Zimmermann in classic retro garb for Oscar de la Renta (shades of Betty Draper with the full skirt and classic red lip) to Stephanie Seymour reprising her role as ultimate pinup, ads are looking to the past for inspiration. Mrs. Brant’s Valentino pictures with the stark black and white image could be tears from a mid 90s Vogue while Lakshmi Menon and Eniko Mihalik look every bit the supermodels in their Max Mara campaign.

The powerful beauty has stood the test of time and her unforgettable allure is captured in exquisite black and white by Greg Kadel for the latest Numero.
