That 1989 image became the cover of the January 1990 issue of British Vogue and heralded the birth of the supermodel.
The five models on the iconic cover were seen by George Michael who asked them to appear in the video for “Freedom 90” and introduced supermodels to MTV audiences globally.
With a contemplative gaze, it seemed the perfect fit when Christy established the Yoga division of Puma athleisure called Nuala in 1999.
Now known as Christy Turlington Burns, having married the dashing actor, director, and screenwriter Ed Burns, the phrase “not just a pretty face” could have been coined for Christy – she earned a B.A. degree in Religion and Philosophy, and later pursued a Master’s Degree in Public Health.
A marathon-running superwoman, Christy has worked with the humanitarian agency CARE and, following the release of her documentary film “No Woman, No Cry”, founded Every Mother Counts which works towards making pregnancy and childbirth safe for all mothers.
Still modelling 30 years on from the famous January 1990 image, Christy continues to walk in catwalk shows and grace magazine covers.
