Supermodel Christy Turlington has made a triumphant return to Calvin Klein as the face of their new women’s underwear range at the age of 44 – some 25-years after she first modeled for them.
In a new shot for Calvin Klein, Christy Turlington looks like she hasn’t aged a day as she strikes a pose in a black-two piece, her dark hair swept back across her head.
The tasteful black and white image from Mario Sorrenti shows off the statuesque 5ft 10inch frame that won Christy Turlington a reputation as one of the most appreciated catwalk models of the 90’s alongside Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer and Elle Macpherson.
It also represents a successful comeback for the stunning model, whose return to the brand she originally modeled for between 1988 and 2007 effectively ushered previous incumbent Lara Stone towards the Calvin Klein exit.
Christy Turlington’s apparent ability to defy the aging process stems, to some extent, from her regular use of yoga – a practice she’s upheld for the last twenty years.
The model originally became the face of the popular brand’s Eternity fragrance before modeling their underwear range in the nineties – when lucrative modeling contracts with the likes of Versace established her as one of the catwalk elite.
Christy Turlington – a mother to son Finn and daughter Grace, her children with director husband Ed Burns – has also worked with the humanitarian group Care (cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere, inc) as a supporter of maternal health.
Speaking to the Telegraph in 2010, she admitted her ambassadorial role is more fulfilling than her modeling career.
“Gosh yes – there’s nothing rewarding than modeling,” Christy Turlington told the Telegraph in 2010.
“It was a fun opportunity that allowed me to see the world but spiritually and intellectually there is nothing rewarding about that profession at all.”
