Sideburning Down the House: Gaga, Linda, and VMA Chic

UPDATED with photo, below

When I saw Lady Gaga's alter ego Jo Calderone at the VMAs, I flashed back to one of my favourite models, Linda Evangelista, who wore that look well herself, back in the day.

I cannot locate the photos I have in mind, which are of Linda in sideburns and stubble, but here are a couple of Linda in "drag":

I also have a strong suspicion that I've seen Cindy Crawford in sideburns too (no, it's not the VF cover with k.d. lang),  and would be thrilled if any savvy readers knew where to locate the images.

Here's the terrific Cindy Crawford photo (Herb Ritts, 1993), thanks to Anon:

I like Linda in drag but Lady Gaga is just kinda creepy.

I remember those Cindy Crawford pictures. I've been looking everywhere for them since Gaga did her drag - can't find them.
