Christy Turlington Covers Harper’s Bazaar in Tom Ford & Balenciaga

Nobody can work a cover shoot quite like one of the original supermodels, so I’m thrilled to see Christy Turlington has been photographed for the June 2013 issue of Harper’s Bazaar US. Christy models a Balenciaga dress on the newsstand edition (you may recognise it, as Carey Mulligan wore the same look to the Met Gala) and an OTT Tom Ford design for the subscriber’s cover. Both images are stunning – I think Harper’s Bazaar definitely have a bestseller on their hands…

Christy Turlington Harper's Bazaar US June 2013

The only thing that annoys me about this cover is the fact they felt the need to mention Christy is “fabulous at 44”, as if it’s some kind of miracle that anyone over 35 could still be fabulous. Why do magazines continue with this annoying “fabulous at [enter non-shocking age here]” stick? Surely if someone is fabulous at 39 they’ll continue to be fabulous into their 40’s and beyond. It’s insanely irritating. Just say Christy Turlington is fabulous. Simple.

But anyway… Do you like the June 2013 Christy Turlington Harper’s Bazaar cover? Which of the two is your favourite?

    I think the subsribers’ cover is a bit… creepy. Christy’s look will probably haunt my nightmares. I love the newsstand cover, though.

  • I’m so glad you pointed out the age thing Beause it’s something that annoys me too!! There is unnecessary amount of hype surrounding a persons age these days. She does look fabulous, as she always have done! X

  • Christy is probably my favourite of all the original supermodels as she has such a timeless beauty. In 20 years she will still have a grace about her that the others won’t. Of the two covers, I definitely prefer the more natural newsstand one
