As way of attracting a broader range of customers, Talbots has hired model Linda Evangelista for their Fall 2010 collection. Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, Evangelista dons revamped classic styles that present an image of class, yet strong femininity. When asked why the company decided to go invoke such a change, CEO Trudy Sullivan stated, “We feel she represents a successful woman that speaks to 40-plus-year old women.”
Regardless of the fact that Linda, at age 45, looks even more amazing than most teen models, I for one am looking at Talbots with a bit more curiosity. What do you think?
