Here at theFashionSpot, we’ve been huge champions and supporters of WSJ. Magazine ever since the publication made its debut back in 2008, and can you blame us? It’s on a very VERY rare occasion in which the magazine disappoints, and covers starring the likes of Karlie Kloss, Gwyneth Paltrow and Oprah have stood the test of time.
Christmas comes early with the unveiling of the title’s digital edition to coincide with the Fall 2023 Men’s Style issue, which sees none other than modeling royalty Linda Evangelista become a WSJ. cover star, who is photographed by the equally as legendary Steven Meisel. The exemplary duo who’ve collaborated since 1987 are reunited once more and with stellar results (as one should expect). Linda’s triumphant return to the world of modeling first saw the Canadian beauty front a Fendi campaign, followed by an even more fabulous appearance on the cover of British Vogue and is currently Vogue‘s September 2023 cover star (for both the American and British editions), alongside her 90s supermodel peers.
WSJ‘s latest takes us by storm, which sees Linda photographed by Meisel in crisp black and white, posing on the studio floor atop a bed of silk sheets. Proving the less is more notion to be true while styled by Karl Templer, the industry icon wears a black sweater from The Row, a pair of Wolford tights and Cartier jewelry.
Needless to say, members of our forums were left… mesmerized. “Stunning cover with Linda! It’s finally the shoot that harkens back to her heyday,” commented Benn98.
“True intimacy between Meisel and Linda,” admired Gonzalo.
“La Linda reigns supreme,” Lucien112 applauded.
Sharing the same enthusiasm was tigerrouge, adding: “Even if it’s a beautiful mirage, this is the Linda that I want, not UK Vogue‘s cover vision of styling supermodels in clothes fit for a funeral!”
“This is truly lovely,” enthused Velasco.
“Divine! Absolutely divine, and I finally feel like Linda has been served justice during her comeback. The cover, as well as the accompanying photographs are… heavenly. The whole concept works, adore the sense of maturity, the sense of beauty, the effortlessness this shoot oozes and the beauty styling from Guido and Pat McGrath. Masters at work!” heralded vogue28.
Linda’s accompanying cover feature is a total must-see. Check it out and join the conversation, here.
