Born on May 10, 1965 (she's 53) into an Italian catholic family in Canada, Evangelista became one of the most famous supermodels of the 90s and has featured on over 700 magazine covers.
Known for her editorial and runway style, Evangelista cut her hair short in 1989 sparking a trademark look called The Linda that was copied by many women of the time, including Demi Moore in Ghost.
It was Evangelista who coined the now infamous term "We don't get out of bed for less than $10,000" in the October edition of US Vogue.
In October 2006, Evangelista gave birth to a son, Augustin James Evangelista who was fathered by Salma Hayek's husband Francois-Henri Pinault. She sued Pinault for unpaid child support, asking for $46,000 per month, but after a short battle, the couple settled out of court.
Full name: Naomi Elaine Campbell
Most famous for: throwing a phone at her assistant
There are many remarkable things about Naomi Campbell, and one of them is that she was the first black model to grace at the cover of British Elle, just shy of her 16th birthday.
Having formed a great bond with her Trinity colleagues, Christy Turlington and Lisa Evangelista told Dolce & Gabbana, "If you don't use Naomi, you don't get us."
Yves Saint Laurent was another of Campbell's fans and told French Vogue he would pull all advertising if they didn't put her on the cover. Voila, it worked! In August 1988, she became the first black woman to grace their cover.
Despite all her covers she was quoted in 1991 as saying "I may be considered one of the top models in the world, but in no way do I make the same money as any of them."

Full name: Katherine Ann Moss
Most Famous for: Being a party girl
Ah, the lovely Kate Moss. Her quirky looks were questioned in the fashion industry when she was discovered at age 14. Not to mention her height. At 5'7" (170cm) Moss is a bit shorter than most fashion models. But she soon carved her own place becoming a Calvin Klein model and the main face of what became known as 'heroin chic'.
But it was Moss's partying lifestyle with then-boyfriend Johnny Depp that made her not just a supermodel but a super celebrity. In 2005, she was dropped from Chanel and H&M fashion campaigns but these were later resumed after the drug allegations were dropped.
Moss's after-hours habits certainly haven't hurt her bank balance. In 2012, the British model was estimated to have earned $9.2million.
Moss has one daughter, Lila Grace, 16, with ex-partner Jefferson Hack.
