Born in Ontario, Canada, Evangelista was first discovered at the 1978 Miss Teen Niagara pageant. Soon afterwards, she got a career-making short haircut from industry favorite Julien d'Ys, became fashion photographer Steven Meisel's muse and went on to cover more than 600 magazines (!).

One of the original crew of '90s supermodels—a group that also included Kate Moss, Christy Turlington, Naomi Campbell and Cindy Crawford—Evangelista appeared in major campaigns for the likes of Revlon, Dolce & Gabbana, L'Oréal Paris and Yves Saint Laurent.
