It’s a bird… It’s a plane… It’s Linda Evangelista. The 47-year-old supermodel appears in the September 2012 issue of W Magazine. Titled “Super Linda“, the fashion spread has Evangelista channeling her inner superhero. The shoot perfectly highlights her uncanny ability to change persona depending on the assignment. She truly is a chameleon and one of my favorite supermodels of all-time. Love that she’s back for this edgy editorial.

Snapped by famed photographer Steven Klein, the Canadian-born beauty dons thigh high boots, heavy duty capes and fantasy leather catsuits in an 18-page spread for the publication. Part Marvel Comics, part sex store catalogue, part Kill Bill promo. She’s the definition of “fierce” in all the pics. At times she looks like a haute couture cross between Michelle Pfeiffer circa Catwoman days and transgender icon Amanda Lepore. Edward Enninful was responsible for the wicked styling. Check out some of the photos below.
