The so-called 'Big Six' would not be complete without the presence of Linda Evangelista. The group of supermodels that ruled the runway throughout the 1990s at the time felt like an unstoppable force of glamour, a wildly successful clan that took the fashion world by storm.

With her trademark powdery teal eyes and exceptional cheekbones, it's no wonder that many top designers were vying to secure Linda for their runway shows.

Since she started out as a model in 1984 under Elite Model Management, Linda has worked with a plethora of top fashion houses, including the likes of Versace, Dolce & Gabbana and Yves Saint Laurent, and has appeared on the front of over 700 magazine covers.

Linda also closely worked with Karl Lagerfeld in his heyday at Chanel, with him reportedly saying about her: "There is not another model in the world as professional as she is."

"We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day," Linda famously said when she was interviewed by Vogue for its October 1990 issue. Intended in a tongue-in-cheek manner, Linda never could have predicted how her words would be immortalised and remembered as one of the most memorable fashion quotes of all time.

Linda appeared on the cover of this year's September issue of British Vogue, sporting a beauty look created by make-up artist Pat McGrath. Linda's face and jaw were secured in place with tape and elastics to achieve this look after she was left "permanently deformed" by a cosmetic procedure.

She took legal action and the case has since been settled, but venturing back into modelling since the procedure has been a huge deal for her on a personal level.

"Am I cured mentally? Absolutely not," she told British Vogue. "But I’m so grateful for the support I got from my friends and from my industry."
