Back when Texas "trailer trash" was chic...

Yes folks, it was Spring 1999, and the Italian Marie Claire people decided to travel all the way to Texas to shoot a "trailer trash chic" (known in NYC as "poverty chic") feature with Bridget Hall, Angie Lindvall and two of their sisters - it was one of those 950+ page Milan FW MC issues that could be used for all kinds of jobs due to its size and weight, this was probably the best photo ever taken of Angie, on the mag cover along with Bridget.





The girls were shot outside Austin Texas, in an industrial area, next to a Dairy Queen which had a "$2 Beltbuster" special, while trying to impress truck drivers in their trendy Cavalli/Exte dresses, and even in a trailer home (!!) where Angie seemed to have a lot of fun with Sunny, Bridget's sister - the other girl, Audrey, is Angie's sister, or vice versa.
A second editorial the following month featured Angie and family in their home in west Kansas (or maybe north Texas).

I dunno whether the high fashion illuminati in NYC approved of all that (Marie Claire? sheesh) but since Angie is with IMG, the usual "oh she did SI/GUESS/MC/all that uncool stuff, her career is probably over" bullshit was limited or non-existent. SI btw reported that Angie (yep, she showed up in SI in a bikini, no shit) lives in some sort of riverboat.

The cover photo is actually from the month that had the pics from Angie's place - the other issue had Esther Canadas on th cover page

She was more of an "Elle girl" in 1997-98 (not that she didn't show up in Vogue, and her appearance in "heroin chic" i-D in 1996 certainly meant that IMG didn't plan to market her as a "conventional beauty") and really became "cult" when she did Prada, etc

I always liked Amy Wasson a lot better - Angie was OK but she didn't have much international appeal

btw Chloe Sevigny once said about Angie "When she does that spacy pout I just wanna punch her in the mouth." !!!!!

Probably because Chloe never made it as a successful model :) Angie is both a great model and a decent actress, while Chloe is just a mediocre actress..

There was a big story about Angela's eco-friendly houseboat in Harpers & Queen the other month, although I don't have it to refer to anymore, as I sent it to an Angela fan... I remember a nice editorial of Angela's extended family from an issue of Dutch magazine which covered a family wedding...
