Once one of the super-er of supermodels, Angela Lindvall was born 31 years ago today in Midwest City, Oklahoma, just east of the OKC, and grew up in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. About ten years ago she looked like this:
Today Lindvall, divorced, lives in Topanga Canyon with her two seriously-cute boys and devotes herself to environmental causes and sustainability; she started the Collage Foundation to support, she says, “an engaged alternative to apathy.” The camera, for its part, clearly still thinks she’s wonderful; the shot to the right comes from a summer ’09 session for the British edition of Vogue, and demonstrates pretty nicely that bewitching and bucolic aren’t mutually exclusive. Those jeans, though, have pretty much had it.
Disclosure: I used to have a picture of Lindvall — a trifle more revealing than either of these — as wallpaper on my trusty Toshiba notebook.
