Who is linda evangelista dating now
But around the time they met in 2006, Pinault was making sweet love to another one of the world's most beautiful women, Linda Evangelista. Nothing out of the ordinary for a man like him to have some gorgeous arm-candy attached to him.Thing is, he got both women pregnant that same year, resulting in the two sex sirens now having 4-year-olds by the French luxury brand owner—except that Evangelista had kept her baby daddy's name secret this whole time."I think those girls were put on this planet to be designers, not actresses. I didn't want to, but I do." To hear Evangelista talk about fashion is to listen to a woman describe her first true love. Nobody put me in bathing suits on a beach." She wasn't the sexpot; she was the supermodel we wanted to dress up and project our fashion fantasies on. But when I mention the S-word, she says, "I don't even know what that means anymore. It's beautiful." She remembers when makeup artists and hair stylists didn't have teams of assistants, when the backstage was the size of an airplane bathroom, and admits to being nostalgic for that era. It had more energy." Evangelista says that in pre-digital-camera days, she felt she was creating art with photographers, which isn't always the case now: "These young whippersnappers have brilliant eyes and ideas, but they're not old-school enough for me." She misses the great technicians who didn't rely on computer wizardry. I like to be tongue-in-cheek."

And last year, when she took Pinault to Family Court in Manhattan to sue him for child support, the media (myself included) reviewed her court ensembles as if it were a fashion show. Evangelista says she was surprised at all the attention, since the headline-making behavior recalled a former version of herself. "This place was the furthest you can be from five-star.
"I do needlepoint, I do crochet, I cake-decorate." She says she's a proficient chef and a barista, and can play a mean accordion, a skill she acquired growing up in St. ("I have two in my apartment, but they have dust on them.
It's more of a winter thing.") When she's not working, days that used to be spent shopping, sleeping, and on the beach at her house in St.-Tropez are now filled with crafting, specifically macramé, and playdates.
All the stuff that is said about my ways and my personality is far more interesting than the truth." Her friendship with Galliano aside, Evan gelista refuses to be pinned down when asked to pick a favorite designer, even when I point out that she's wearing head-to-toe Céline.
