Authentic

Once a supermodel, always a supermodel. This certainly applies to Christy Turlington. She has been in the fashion business for over 20 years and her magnetic charm does not seem to be fading. From Chanel to Louis Vuitton, this woman can do no wrong. She is a very beautiful clothes horse. And her latest editorial (Elle France, December 2010) portrays this.





Christy is one of the original supermodels back from the 80s and 90s. Who out of that group is your ultimate favourite? Whether it's Naomi, Claudia or indeed, Christy- cast your votes!

PS: Belgium was fantastic. Nothing better than escaping reality for a while.

you know what i like about her? she kinda looks approachable. like almost like a neighbor or the lady at the store. the incredibly hot lady at the store. the one who grabs the last bag of gummy bears but you just let her cuz she's so pretty and you're kinda scared. you know? ;)

Used to see her in Tribeca when I lived there with her kids. She has a classic beauty so I think I will go with the last one!!

Great post! She's one of my favorite models! And she doesn't seem to age, does she? Oh, and she's married to Ed Burns, too! Nice ; )

She looks awesome. Her eyes are so intense. I would love to age that gracefully.
