“It’s not a secret, just personal. You might be surprised. Just between you and me.” Huh?
Holy. Naomi. Campbell. We’ve been wetting ourselves over Laura Brown’s tweets and ‘grams about the latest episode of The Look, and after we watched it, we promptly emptied our overexcited bladders again.
Christy and Calvin; Calvin and Christy. Has there ever been a brand/model relationship more indelible and iconic than this? Today, the house announced that they would be reviving it once again for their fall 2013 underwear campaign, with the 44-year-old super posing for the lens of Mario Sorrenti on location in Vieques, Puerto Rico. In light of this news (which warms the cockles of our ’90s-loving hearts), we’re taking a trip down memory lane and looking back at some of the most memorable images of the past 25 years, ever since Irving Penn first shot Christy for Calvin back in 1988.
When observing last night’s red carpets, the phrase “dressing for the occasion” comes to mind. At the United Nations‘ Every Woman Every Child dinner, stars like Christy Turlington-Burns, Lily Cole, and Debra Messing wore modest and subdued ensembles. But over in Sydney, Australia at Cosmopolitan‘s Fun Fearless Female Awards, the ladies either went with short and tight, or long and sheer.
Models past and present hit the town last night in New York City — those that weren’t across the pond gearing up for Milan Fashion Week, that is.
Donna Karan has tapped Christy Turlington, Liya Kebede, and Karolina Kurkova to front her new fragrance Woman. Who else to better represent a grown up fragrance than actual women? No stick-thin, underage girls here!
Another day, another set of Tribeca Film Festival events, and another excuse for us to round up photos of every celebrity in attendance in order to judge how well their stylists dress them.
In addition to running an organization dedicated to the health of mothers and children, doing a lot of yoga, being married to Ed Burns, and filming documentaries, Christy Turlington has also, apparently, found the time to run the New York City Marathon.
The British Advertising Standards Authority has blocked a Lancome ad featuring Julia Roberts and a Maybelline ad with Christy Turlington from publication because of complaints the images look overly Photoshopped. The companies, which are both owned by L’Oreal, acknowledged retouching them, say the images aren’t unbelievable.
It’s no secret that we love ourselves a vintage video around here — and half the reason we love them is the mystery! What year was it? Where is the accompanying editorial spread? Can we name every model and figure out the photographer? It’s like a super fun game of fashion trivia. But today, dear readers, we found one that stumped us. Featuring Naomi Campbell, Christy Turlington, Kate Moss, and three unknown models, the clip is described as a “Rare Pirelli” video, but we’re not so sure. Can you help us out?
Christy Turlington is probably best known as the ultra glamorous supermodel who held court over the 90s with Naomi Campbell, Brooke Shields and other such glamazons. But her biggest claim to fame these days is working hard to help empower women everywhere, not just the ones who can afford the designer duds she used to help move. Which is exactly why she says she teamed up with Avon on its new fragrance, Slip Into, which will be available here in the US next year.
Marc Jacobs‘ fall ads for Louis Vuitton have been lauded for featuring three different supermodels of varying ages and hair color (diversity!): Natalia Vodianova, Karen Elson, and Christy Turlington. But while the images certainly are gorgeous, it appears the creative people behind the ads took some liberties with the laws of physics.
After seeing Cindy Crawford’s to-die-for spread in UK Harper’s Bazaar, it occurred to us that supermodels never seemed to age. Naturally, we put our intrepid interns on the job and discovered, well, it’s a fact: they’ve either got the genes, the money, or the most incredible plastic surgeons in the world because these ladies are starting to look younger and younger every day.
Ever wonder what supermodels talk about backstage? Today’s flashback sheds a little light on the subject via a clip from the 1996 documentary, “Catwalk.”
