Where the original supermodels are now – legal battles, baby secret and family tragedy

Former supermodel Linda Evangelista has been left permanently disfigured after a cosmetic surgery procedure went wrong.

We revealed in yesterday’s paper that the Canadian catwalk star has spiralled into a deep depression after a CoolSculpting treatment to remove fatty tissue had the reverse effect, leaving her feeling unrecognisable and unable to work.

Supermodels are often associated with reality television’s elite. But before them, there was Helena Christensen (and Naomi Campbell).
