more than a muse




the photography above is from an ad by strenesse blue. i've always adored miss turlington not only because of her brilliant bob or her grand doe eyes, but because she is more than just a muse. model, christy turlington is a savvy, smart & strong woman; not to mention stylish. her fearlessness to stand up for her beliefs and practice what she preaches makes her a true role model in my eyes.

a li'l christy trivia:

• Her face is used on the mannequins for the Costume Institute at the Met, causing her to be called the 'Face of the 20th Century'.
• She climbed Mount Kilimanjaro.
• She has graced the covers of over 500 magazines.

a ditty from wiki: On June 7, 2003 she married Edward Burns in a ceremony with U2 frontman Bono acting father of the bride. Burns and Turlington have two children, Grace and Finn. She is the author of Living Yoga: Creating A Life Practice


a few favorite pics. such a lovely fair lady.

If you like Christy, here's a great video on her new ad for Roberto Coin. She is absolutely gorgeous. I just discovered your site and I love it.
