A hair cut that can turn a beautiful girl into a supermodel, just as it happened to Linda Evangelista who followed Peter Lindbergh's suggestion to swap her glamorous main for a simple boyish bob style. At first she cried unable to hold back her emotions, only to become a one-of-a-kind chameleon and trendsetter within months. The story that always sounded like a legend, a tale shared by a few...

It turned out that while Linda was turning into a dazzling superstar with the help of Julien d'Ys, Peter Lindbergh was capturing every moment of her transformation on camera. Yesterday he finally shared those archived images via Instagram and Facebook

A moment of fashion history for us to marvel over.

  3. These photos are so powerful - I never forget Linda because of her short hair. It's a lesson to all of us how a big risk can have an even bigger pay off if you're willing to go for it.
