A lot us recognise the famous face of modelling royalty Linda Evangelista. She is, after all, one of the world’s most accomplished and influential supermodels of all time, and she’s the power figure who notoriously said she “doesn’t wake up for less than $10,000 a day.” But, sadly, some younger modelling hopefuls don’t have a clue who this woman is, or how much it costs for her to wake up.

Alex Perry revealed to KIIS FM’s Kyle and Jackie O this morning that he had to educate his Australia’s Next Top Model contestants of Linda’s status when she appeared as a guest judge on the show recently. “I think the girls had to Google her, though,” Alex said. “We remember her but 16-year-olds don’t.”

Like a good judge, Alex refreshed their memory. “Some days she used to shoot with Gilles Bensimon, like a really famous photographer, and they’d shoot 30 covers in a day so we had to tell the girls that, ‘in your wildest dreams you will have this career’.”
