Linda Evangelista Masks Face On Back Cover For ‘Vogue’ After CoolSculpting Disaster

Former supermodel Linda Evangelista appears flawless on the September cover British Voguebut the model revealed in a new interview with the magazine that the beautiful photos required makeup artist Pat McGrath to mask off her face.

“That’s not my jaw and neck in real life — and I can’t go all over the place with duct tape and rubber bands,” Evangelista said. “I try to love myself for who I am. But for the photos… Look, for photos, I always think we’re here to create fantasies. We create dreams. I think it’s allowed. All my insecurities are eliminated in these images, so I have to do what I love to do.” The ribbon and elastics McGrath used are covered by hats and scarves.

Evangelista has been brutally honest about her experience with CoolSculpting, a “fat-freezing” technique marketed as a non-invasive alternative to liposuction; Evangelista said the procedure left her “brutally disfigured” and “permanently deformed” after completing multiple sessions between 2015 and 2016.

Evangelist tells Fashion: “These CoolSculpting commercials were on all the time — on CNN, on MSNBC, over and over, and they were like, ‘Do you like what you see in the mirror?’ You spoke to me. It was about stubborn fat in areas that wouldn’t move. It said no downtime, no surgery. I drank the potion and I would do it because I’m a bit vain. So I went for it — and it backfired.’”

Evangelista said she still couldn’t bear to look at herself in the mirror. “Am I mentally healed? Absolutely not,” she said. “But I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had from my friends and my industry.”

In September 2021, Evangelista, who had previously been in seclusion for several years, first revealed her experience via Instagram, stating that she was seeking a lawsuit against ZELTIQ Aesthetics and its CoolSculpting technology (the case has since been settled under undisclosed terms).

“I have developed paradoxical fatty hyperplasia, [which] not only destroyed my livelihood, it plunged me into a cycle of deep depression, deep sadness, and deepest self-loathing,” Evangelista wrote.

Instead of smoothing and reducing the parts of her body that Evangelista wanted to improve, her skin began to swell, bulge and harden after CoolSculpting, the model said persons in February.

“If I had any known side effects, the loss of your livelihood and [that I’d] ended up so depressed that [I] hated [myself]… I wouldn’t have taken that risk,” Evangelista said Fashion. Linda Evangelista Masks Face On Back Cover For ‘Vogue’ After CoolSculpting Disaster
