In a commission by Italian artist Maurizio Cattelan, PierPaolo Ferrari photographed Linda Evangelista for W magazine's annual art issues. Styled by Camilla Nickerson, Evangelista wears sweat-stained Rena Lange while backed into a corner, plays with chickens in Valentino Haute Couture, crawls through a cardboard wall on all fours in Carolina Herrera, and has a religious moment in Chanel.
In an interview with W's editors' blog, Evangelista said of the aforementioned chicken sitting, "We were working around the chickens, not me. The chickens go to sleep at dusk—so they said, 'If you don't hurry up, we're going to lose them!' There are moments in your life when you say, How did I get here? And it happened to me in that moment."
