Remember a time when the glamazons ruled the world?
Well Tyson Beckford sure does, and in a recent interview with Mr. Porter, he's thanking predecessor Linda Evangelista for paving the way with her stubborn antics in the '90s that led to models making ridiculously silly amounts of money!
"Define 'silly,' I ask. Sillier than Ms Linda Evangelista's famous $10,000 a day to get out of bed?" said Tyson.
"You know when Linda said that it set the bar for every other model - everyone just upped their day rates. It was hilarious. All the models - women and men - were like, 'Remind me to send Linda flowers!'"
I once walked in a fashion show - literally, just walked - for no more than a minute or two and they paid me a silly amount of money.
$40,000. I was like, 'Really? You don't have to give me that!"
Due to supermodels like Linda Evangelista, models are now some of the highest paid people in the world, pulling in millions each year.
