Christy Turlington Burns never really went away, but you could say 2014 has been a comeback of sorts for her. She’s everywhere right now: on the cover of British Vogue and LOVE magazine, appearing in ELLE USA [below], providing a constant stream of Instagram-inspiration, and starring in the new Calvin Klein Eternity campaign (alongside husband Ed Burns), 26 years after she first appeared in the iconic ads.
I’m enjoying these Christy sightings a lot, because she’s always been my favourite supermodel. Beauty – like fashion – is so subjective and totally lies in the eyes of the beholder, but Christy is one of those extreme beauties that everyone becomes mesmerized by. At the moment my favourite form of procrastination is looking through her ’90s editorials on Pinterest. It’s an endless source of inspiration!
My wardrobe could definitely do with a dose of Christy Turlington style, so this A/W I’ll be investing in clean lines, minimalist tailoring and a few ’90s inspired pieces. The J.Crew cashmere turtleneck has completely captured my heart, and I also think Topshop’s black maxi dress is a super-sexy evening option. It’s very Calvin Klein – but comes in at a purse-friendly £50.
Are you pleased that Christy Turlington has had a busy year so far? Is she your favourite supermodel too? And are you a fan of her laid-back style? Let me know…
