Christy Turlington has always been my favourite of the original Supermodels.
In honour of Christy’s fortieth birthday in 2009, W magazine put together a collection of iconic images from her career, some of which I’ve posted here, but you can view the slideshow here.
Those doe eyes, perfect lips and button nose. That look she has when she’s looking right into the camera. No one does it like she can. Her face, which has been the face of many campaigns throughout her career, was once used by the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art as the face of 120 mannequins!
And don’t get me started on her hair! Perfection. She can wear it long, short, curly or straight, fringe or pulled back off her flawless face. She is a chameleon. Yep. I guess by now you can tell she’s been a long-time girl crush of mine.
How’s your week going? xx
P.S. Bonus Christy video from the 90s for you – just a little something for you to look back on, but you know something funny? I watched this and there are guys in the video – I only remember the girls being in it 🙂
Here’s Christy and Naomi, Linda, Tatjana and Cindy in George Michael’s Freedom! 90 video – enjoy!
