Linda Evangelista (born May 10, 1965) is a Canadian supermodel. Evangelista uttered the quote, "We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day" (often misquoted as: "We don't get out of bed for less than..." or "I don't get out of bed for less than...") Spoken in Vogue (1990) to Jonathan Van Meter, talking about money and how she and a few other models were calling the shots and changing the game. In the late 1980s, she cut all her hair off to brandish a little-boy style haircut and was promptly cancelled from all the important runway shows that season. This was the first of many dramatic hairstyle changes. Within months, she appeared on magazine covers everywhere and many women emulated the hairstyle. In 2007 she signed a multiple year exclusive contract with the beauty giant L'Oreal Paris. It was announced in early 2008 that she would be starring in the Prada Fall 2008 Campaign. The ads can be seen in magazines internationally.
