Linda Evangelista was born in Canada. She is credited with helping to spark the supermodel craze of the late 80's and 90's. She is often called "the chameleon" for her frequently changing hairstyle and ability to transform in front of the camera. She gave birth in 2006 to her first child, a son. Recently she returned to the catwalk in 2007 for Christian Dior's 60th fall couture collection, and was also named the face of Prada for the F/W 08 campaign.
