He is her copy: supermodel Linda Evangelista attended the event with her 16-year-old son from her husband Salma Hayek


The young man is very similar to his famous mother.

Previously, it was almost impossible to see the son of 90s supermodel Linda Evangelista , because the star carefully hid both him and herself from the press. However, after his grand return to the podium with Linda, her 16-year-old son Augustine James also began to appear frequently in public.

The teenager also accompanied his mother to the second annual Kering “Caring for Women” charity dinner. Linda wore an elegant black and white outfit that evening, consisting of a jacket, long skirt and white blouse. The supermodel wore her hair back, applied delicate makeup and completed her look with several jewelry. 

The young man attended the event because it was organized by the company of his father, the French billionaire Francois-Henri Pinault. Linda dated Pino for four months from late 2005 to early 2006. When they broke up and the model realized that she was pregnant, she decided to keep the child. For many years she sued Pino for alimony, but what kind of relationship the child had with his father was not reported.

However, thanks to the billionaire’s wife, actress Salma Hayek, it is known that Augustine communicates with his father’s family, sisters, and even vacations with them at luxury resorts. Salma has repeatedly published photos of the boy on social networks, and he also appeared at parties with her and his half-sister Valentina Paloma.
