Linda Evangelista Opens Up About ‘Deforming’ Procedure

I’m willing to finally speak.” Photo via Getty/ Newsmakers Alan Matarasso, a New York City plastic surgeon who has never treated Evenagelista, tells PEOPLE that “the problem with PAH is that, in some instances, it may not go away. “I just couldn’t live in this pain any longer. It is a rare side effect induced by the freezing process that causes the fatty tissue to thicken and expand. “I was like, ‘What the hell is that?’ And he told me no amount of dieting, and no amount of exercise was ever going to fix it,” Evangelista recalled.It is reported that less than 1% of CoolSculpting patients are affected by PAH. Dr. These swollen masses then hardened and turned numb. Her body reacted quite differently from what the supermodel expected and began developing lumps on the chin, thighs and bra area. In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Linda Evangelista – one of the most influential fashion icons of the ‘90s and muse of legendary designers – opened up about a cosmetic procedure that has distorted her body permanently, leaving her “unrecognizable.” Related | Linda Evangelista’s Cosmetic Surgery ‘Permanently Deformed’ HerThe supermodel, who at her height sparked the worldwide phenomenon of “The Linda” boyish haircut in the early ‘90s, has been living privately, hiding from the spotlight for almost five years. Now, she is finally ready to talk about her traumatic experience with CoolSculpting — an FDA-cleared “fat-freezing” procedure that’s meant to be a noninvasive alternative to liposuction.

Evangelista revealed that she began dieting and exercising in order to go back to her natural shape. In many circumstances the affected areas are no longer amenable to liposuction.””I can’t live like this anymore, in hiding and shame,” Evangelista said of her experience. However, the outcome left her “permanently deformed” and “brutally disfigured,” as she said in an Instagram post last September.After undergoing seven sessions of CoolSculpting between August 2015 and February 2016, which were supposed to shrink and firm up her body, Evangelista started noticing that she was getting the opposite result. I thought I was losing my mind.” When she finally went to her doctor, she received the unfortunate diagnosis, Paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH). “I tried to fix it myself, thinking I was doing something wrong,” and added “I got to where I wasn’t eating at all.

Queen Elizabeth Made a Dog Perfume, Because Obviously

And while the bloodline of royal Corgis has now died off, Elizabeth is not without the pitter-patter of doggy feet around the palace. So your guys, gals, and nonbinary pals can all use the scent equally.Though a rep for the queen didn’t respond to The Sun’s query about whether or not she’s actually used this dog fragrance on her own Corgis, we like to imagine that she’s spritzing the royal dogs with this fresh scent, especially after a roll around in the gardens. The scent is sure to be fresh, with a “rich, musky scent with citrus notes of bergamot,” according to The Sun. Best of all: It’s unisex! Your dog will thank you.Photo via Getty Perhaps she’s been conceptualizing this fragrance over decades, as she’s spent years with all her pups.The queen has had numerous dogs throughout her life, always showing an affinity for Corgis. Your stinky dog is about to get a makeover, all courtesy of Her Majesty the Queen. Well worth the price if you have an exceptionally smeller pet. Queen Elizabeth II just launched Happy Hounds Dog Cologne — yes, dog cologne — as part of the merch you can purchase at Sandringham Estate, the queen’s home away from home. Ever since she was a child, according to Reader’s Digest, Elizabeth has had them. Nestled next to plates with the queen’s face on them and keychains with a Union Jack, you’ll find this luxury fragrance designed with your pupper in mind. She still has a couple dogs to keep her company in her twilight years — and we’re willing to bet they all smell of coastal walks.If you’re in England, you can grab your own bottle of Happy Hounds Dog Cologne to bring home, but if you’re flying internationally, be prepared to put it in a checked bag, as it’s six ounces and won’t pass airport security in your carry-on. As a dog-lover, it only makes sense Queen Elizabeth would come up with a product for your fur babies, ya know?Touted as the scent of “coastal walks,” the Happy Hounds Dog Cologne can be purchased for £9.99 or a meager $13 and some change. The line of dog succession continued to grow as the royal dogs bred more babies.

Gorgeous, Gorgeous Girls Love Glamour

Once that gate is open, you don’t need a lick of mascara to feel it.5 Beauty Products Annahstasia Can’t Live Without: Devon Lee CarlsonDevon Lee CarlsonWho is your biggest beauty inspiration? Beauty is about the self and people that inspire me to be myself are people that are so boldly themselves.How has beauty transformed your life? The smell of my mother’s makeup drawer, watching her get ready, trying to repeat the same mesmerizing ritual on myself. Beauty led me to drag, which gave me the confidence to pursue it as career. I am currently mourning the loss of this beauty icon, damn. Obsessed. That obviously shaped me into the over the top, “never too much” type of woman I work towards being every day. Illustrating this for PAPER is photographer Daniel Sachon, who drew inspiration from the “mystique and allure of Los Angeles in the ’70s and ’80s,” while makeup artist Sam Visser worked with hairstylist Jake Gallagher to bring the glam to life. I always knew I was beautiful, but I didn’t always know I was powerful. I love lining my eyes with sormeh (an ancient form of eye-liner still used today). Beauty has entered an era of maximalism: over-the-top shimmering lids, bold lip colors and teased out hair. It’s giving rich Bel Air girlie in 1979.Below, six of the most beautiful people on the internet — Annahstasia, Devon Lee Carlson, Symone, Staz Lindes, Savannah Hudson and Leila Rahimi — model the trend and share with us their love for all things beauty. Now I’m able to make a living from it. I’m constantly inspired by the girls at the checkout lines in grocery stores across America, to the punk rock girls that come to our shows. Growing up as a competitive dancer, doing my hair and makeup has always been a big part of my life. I love seeing how other people use makeup, as well. Baby, beauty did an overhaul on my life.5 Beauty Products Symone Can’t Live Without: Staz LindesStaz LindesWho is your biggest beauty inspiration? That is such a hard question to answer. We are in such an important and limitless time of expression and individuality, right now. Being able to express yourself, be whoever you want to be, is just fun.5 Beauty Products Devon Lee Carlson Can’t Live Without: SymoneSymoneWho is your biggest beauty inspiration? Beauty is effortless for her. Seeing powerful women defying boundaries by doing things for themselves and because these things make us feel good is most important.How has beauty transformed your life? Beauty for me was never about emulation. I found self-expression in beauty and makeup at such a young age, honestly. I could never pick one, I have too many. It’s such a powerful thing, and I feel so excited that I get to learn and express myself through beauty by seeing what works for me. It is also used as spiritual armor protecting those who line their eyes from evil eyes. Beauty in a way helped me hone that. As an artist, seeking to create beauty is a way to shape something that can be dark or painful into something beautiful. I love mythology and ancient stories of love, so I would say a lot of my inspiration comes from tales of heroines and star-crossed lovers and how I feel they might adorn themselves. Beauty is play and an extension of one’s fantasy and character. Beauty transports the us to a higher realm; there is no use for it other than to bask in its wonder and contemplate. How has beauty transformed your life? I fell in love with lipstick when I was about seven or eight. I think I’m going to have to say Naomi Campbell. I love you, Ronnie.How has beauty transformed your life? She also showed me what’s possible as far as drag goes.How has beauty transformed your life? She was the first model I remember seeing and just being blown away. Beauty can transform sorrow into joy. Sometimes it’s hard for me to recall one, but I remember growing up and watching my grandma get dressed up every day, decked out in pearls and fur just to go to the market. My babysitter gave me a winged cat eye, she called them angel wings, when I was probably nine. I feel that I am inspired by so many things when it comes to beauty. Indeed, full-throttle glamour is officially back. Kate Moss, Rihanna, Brigitte Bardot, my mom, my sister, RuPaul and Cher. At the moment, my biggest beauty inspiration is Ronnie Spector. It’s a long list but they’re at the top of it. I feel hopeful that the generations after mine will be even more free to express themselves authentically.5 Beauty Products Savannah Hudson Can’t Live Without: Leila RahimiLeila RahimiWho is your biggest beauty inspiration?My inspiration for beauty comes from many sources. But when there’s no makeup, no dress, no fanfare, there must be glamour, as well —glamour and strength that radiates from within you. Beauty and how you make yourself up is really one of the biggest forms of expression without having to use words. I also find a lot of inspiration from my Iranian heritage. I used to do my friend’’ glam for homecoming and prom, and it’s always just brought me so much joy. Besides my grandma, I’ve always been inspired by classic, strong beauty characters in entertainment like Caterina Valente, Cher and Monica Belluci. Throughout the decades she dressed amazingly, kept her beehive teased to the heavens and usually had that sexy smokey black thick winged liner. Makeup and fashion especially gives you a superhero mask as a gateway to that power.

Willy Chavarria Celebrates Latinx Power With ‘CUT DEEP’

CUT DEEP posters are available on the Willy Chavarria site now for a limited time with 100% of proceeds benefitting the work of Project Q. Traditionally and even currently, the term “Latinx” has been used as a catch all term to simplify what is an extremely nuanced and multi-dimensional culture. We encompass the full gamut of American culture. For Black and Brown communities, the barbershop has long served as a communal space functioning as a common ground for conversation, expression and identity. There is a creative and cultural Renaissance happening in Black and Brown spaces currently. Going into 2022 and firing on all cylinders, POC creatives are not only commanding a seat at the table, but are at the head of it.Marcus Correa is one brightly emerging star of this movement, who speaks his prose through creative direction and fashion styling. His latest work in collaboration with fellow photographer Carlos Jaramillo, aptly named CUT DEEP, is a cultural statement channeled through the classic barbershop poster. The fire of Latino/ Latinx creators in the US has reached new levels of talent and visibility in recent years (and even months). Just as a barbershop serves a cohesive base of individual customers, Latino culture is a monolithic force comprised of a myriad of different backgrounds and experiences.The project itself is comprised of 30 portraits and 30 full body looks, a visual representation of the sheer collective strength and beauty of the Latinx force which permeates, color, gender, sexuality, body type, age and, of course, hair. Whatever label you want to give to us and however you want to group us, we will continue to take it and redefine it. With vision that pushes beyond the confines of cultural tradition, a surge of cutting-edge thinkers is creating a fresh perspective on fashion, music and more. CUT DEEP visually contextualizes this digging deeper beyond Chicano, Mexicano or Latino to show the humans that define these terms and not the other way around.Echoing the ethos of the Willy Chavarria brand, CUT DEEP goes beyond fashion and is rather a take on society. We can take on whatever label is placed upon us: We are Latino/x/e, we are Chicanx, we are Mexicanx, we are immigrants, we are indigenous, we are educated, we are hood, we are punk, we are queer. These places act as an integral piece and microcosm of the ever-evolving Latinx identity in this country. Creative direction: Marcus Correa

BIA Just Dropped a Makeup Line

This week, BIA launched her first dabble into the beauty industry: a product line, called “Beauty For Certain,” as a play on her 2020 EP, For Certain. BIA puts on her blush just to go to the bodega. “So to be able to build my own brand in this space from the ground up and partner with Dolls Kill for the launch is a dream come true. I can’t wait to share it with the world.” To celebrate, BIA threw an exclusive launch party with Dolls Kill at their Los Angeles location, where the rapper performed and Tommy Genesis joined her on stage to perform the recent single, “a woman is a god.”

You can shop the collection exclusively at DollsKill.com and in DollsKill stores. All of BIA’s makeup is cruelty free and packaged in an environmentally conscious way. While most celebrity-led beauty brands play it safe, BIA wrapped her face all over the packaging and said “fuck it.””Beauty For Certain” features matte liquid lipsticks in nine shades, a cream highlighter in three shades and a cream blush in three shades. “I’ve always loved makeup,” BIA says in a release. Available exclusively on Dolls Kill, BIA’s collection gives us the baddie energy we’ve been missing from beauty at large. After reaching mainstream success for “Whole Lotta Money,” complete with a feature from Miss Onika Maraj herself, BIA has become the latest rap queen everyone’s crushing on — and now she’s dropping her own makeup.

Micaiah Carter’s First Solo Show Celebrates Black Beauty

Dipping into the past, the exhibition will also honor and celebrate Carter’s own family history and at the heart of the show is Carter’s late father, a Vietnam veteran who died of prostate cancer in 2021. In 2020, Carter even launched his own initiative, See in Black, creating a coalition of Black photographers who invest in, uplift and build a community around Black visibility. American Black Beauty, opening at SN37 Gallery on February 11 during New York Fashion Week, blends Carter’s fashion, editorial and personal work into one space — all linked through one common thread: the desire for Black representation in imagery.Working with the celebrities, artists, designers and publications alike — from Pyer Moss and Zendaya to GQ and our very own PAPER — the California-born, New York-based photographer ensures Black beauty is at the forefront of each image he carefully crafts. Responding to loss through creativity, Carter incorporates home videos and archival imagery to pay tribute to his father as a constant supporter of his work as a reminder that nothing — even the ephemeral beauty of a photograph — takes place in a vacuum.
