lindaeforpradafall.jpgNineties supermodel Linda Evangelista has knocked young Russian model Sascha Pivovarova off her Prada perch by being named the face of the label's autumn '08 campaign.

The 42-year-old gave us a hint of her forthcoming project, when she recently attended the Takashi Murakami exhibition in New York wearing a Prada dress (pictured right). But it was just rumours at that stage that she was tapped for the new ad campaign.

Evangelista is currently shooting the new campaign with photographer Steven Meisel, confirming rumours that she is the Italian's house's new favourite lady.

With Claudia Schiffer for Chanel and Naomi Campbell for YSL, are we seeing a return to the iconic supermodel fronting big campaigns?
