Linda Evangelista, 57, was pictured without a patch of makeup on her face as she strolled in New York earlier this week.
The Canadian mum-of-one was spotted putting on a casual show in an oversized denim jacket, baggy black trousers and Birkenstocks.
She wore her brushed brunette locks in a top knot and accessorized with oversized glasses, alongside a face mask worn under her chin, while hailing a taxi in the American city.
The outing marks a rare sighting of the former model, who was devastated after a fat-freezing plastic surgery procedure, known as cryotherapy, left her “brutally disfigured” and living a life of ” recluse”.
Heartbroken Linda claims the treatment caused her to develop ‘bulges’ all over her body.
The star broke her silence in an Instagram post earlier this year, telling fans, “To my followers who wondered why I didn’t work when my peers’ careers were thriving, the reason is that I I was brutally disfigured by Zeltiq’s CoolSculpting procedure, which did the opposite of what it promised.
“It increased, not decreased, my fat cells and left me permanently deformed after undergoing two painful and unsuccessful corrective surgeries. I was left, as the media described it, “unrecognizable”.
A CoolSculpting representative said that the procedure’s rare side effects, such as paradoxical adipose hyperplasia (PAH), which Linda suffered from, “continue to be well documented in CoolSculpting’s patient and healthcare provider information.” health”.
