Supermodel Linda Evangelista
was a vision of immaculate beauty as she posed for a religious-themed photo shoot in New York.
The 44-year-old looked stunning in a show stopping off-white gown with yellow roses tied to her wrists, a large head dress and three chains with cross pendants hanging from her neck.
Linda stood on a stage as she was carried by a number of men for the elaborate shoot which appeared to recreate a religious procession held in Seville, Spain during Holy Week.
The sensational pictures are thought be for an upcoming issue of W magazine.
Linda, who famously said: 'We don't wake up for less than $10,000 a day', has been back on top in recent months as the revival of the supermodel continues.
With big name brands turning to familiar faces in the wake of the economic downturn, the 5ft 9.5in model recently fronted Prada's Autumn/Winter lace look campaign and was appointed L'Oreal's international spokesperson last November.
The beauty company announced a profit boost of 20 per cent since she appeared in their TV adverts.
Meanwhile, her contemporaries have followed the trend as Claudia Schiffer has returned to represent Chanel and Naomi Campbell fronts the latest Yves Saint Laurent advertising campaign.
Unlike her fellow supermodels, Linda has admitted to using botox to enhance her looks.
‘How do other women feel when they see the pictures? Models are not superhuman. We grow old,’ she said.
