The group enjoyed time together

Marc Jacobs penned: "The best of the BEST," with four red love heart emojis in the comments.

The stunning snap comes after the former supermodel - who once famously said, "I don't get out of bed for less than $10,000 a day," - shared with fans that she had "developed Paradoxical Adipose Hyperplasia or PAH" last year after CoolSculpting treatments.

She revealed that it had "not only destroyed my livelihood, it has sent me into a cycle of deep depression, profound sadness, and the lowest depths of self-loathing" and that she had "become a recluse".

Linda opened up to People magazine

Linda said that after the first procedure - which freezes fat and promises up to 20% reduction - she noticed bulges at her chin and thighs which then turned numb and hard.

She began starving herself, hoping to fix what she thought was weight gain, and when she visited her doctor he told her that "no amount of dieting, and no amount of exercise was ever going to fix it".

In November 2021, Christy told Page Six that she reached out to her friend about the ordeal.

According to the star, they had already been in contact with each other "but not about stuff like that," focusing rather on "kids, school, and things like that.

"It seems from what I've read that's what it's done for her. It's unfortunate. One voice out of so many that I'm sure have suffered through it," said Christy.

Naomi commented: "I applaud you for your Courage and strength to Share your experience and not be held hostage by it anymore. You know I love you. We love you and are here for you always right by your side."
