Christy Turlington: Vogue France

Tuesday, December 4, 2012


All I want for Christmas is Christy Turlington's genes! HaHaHa She's 43, the mother of 2 and gosh she looks just as good now as she did in the 80's. Christy appears in the January 2013 edition of Vogue France. She's dressed head to toe in black leather, lace, tulle & super fun tights. Photographer's Inez and Vinoodh truly capture the essence of Christy's beauty, charm and all of the fabulous designs she wears. Don't you think some people have both inner and outer beauty? I always felt Christy had that. But there's MORE to Christy than just beauty! Did you know she's a Humanitarian? She founded Every Mother Counts, which brings awareness, education and support regarding global maternal mortality reduction. She experienced a difficult pregnancy herself and so the cause is very dear to her heart. Christy is just an exemplary woman. My fellow blogger buddy-ista, Natalia of Fashioned by Love blog, surfaced some vintage footage of Christy Turlington from her supermodel days. I truly enjoyed watching all of them. It reminded me how awesome an individual and exemplary a woman Christy is. You should definitely take a look at those videos when you have time. Have a great Tuesday everybody! What's your opinion of Christy Turlington?

Seeing these beautiful photos of Christy in French Vogue made me really nostalgic for the true supermodels of the 90s; these were strong, beautiful women who embraced their power in business that came from their unique combination of looks and brains. The fashion industry is a different place now and sadly, most of the models are so young that we'll never know if they might develop into these kind of women and frankly, I think the industry is worse for it. Thanks for sharing this, Kim :)

she does look great.but then again it is not just good genes.they have the resources to take care of themselves fabulously.and that is a very good cause indeed.

She's always been stunning...seriously! I still love her in the Freedom video :) Love all of these :) Kim, you don't need to rush in sending me anything, I am still gathering. I'm so indecisive, haha. I see one thing, then I see another! Plus, the streets here are crap right now and it's made me behind. I twisted my ankle on Saturday, it's really bruised, I swear I'm a walking disaster, so that's slowed me down. So, please don't worry, I rather you rest and get better, it sounds terrible and never apologise for coming round late to my blog, that's not important. Your health is and you...and you always visit, so no worries!! I hope you continue to feel better sweets! I hope you have a sweet day doll! love ya too :) xx

I would love to look as good as her NOW! She really has done so many cool things as well in her humanitarian efforts as well and is a great role model in so many ways!

She is a decade older than me but she looks so young. In fact, i dont think her appearance has changed any since i spotted her in commercial ages ago. Some women are just lucky to have good gene and look forever young.

I adore all the outfits.

I agree - she looks just as good as in the 80s. I didn't know about her humanitarian work - interesting! I do like to read Vogue France but not always easy to find here.

I just saw a special on models from the 1940s-90s and what they are doing now and how they've held up. Turlington was it it. She's incredible . . .

jo said...

Hi Kim, I hope you're feeling better. I love Christy and my other favorite model is Cindy Crawford. It would be nice to have their genes. Hehe.

One of my favorite models ever and I love that she's out there trying to make a difference. Living in New York, I saw Christy Turlington on the street many years ago and recently again this past summer. She's just as beautiful as ever and even better she seems very down to earth. I think we could hang with her Kim :)

She's still so hot at her age! Thanks for sharing, Kim!

Lisa - respect the shoes said...

Have you noticed all the original super models (Naomi, Cindy, Claudia, Linda - and Christy included) all still look as flawless as they did back in the 90s? I think those ladies put a lot of the younger models to shame! ;o)

Cambria said...

These are amazing photos...wish I had that kind of skill in front of a camera! Love the one with the tutu skirt!
