Christy Turlington by Steven Meisel and Karl Templar - Modern and Classic Indeed

If you haven't already picked up the latest edition of Italian Vogue...go out and spend $18 to buy it right now!

The Christy Turlington cover story photographed by Steven Meisel and styled by Karl Templar is one of the most beautiful fashion editorials that I have ever seen.  (and I'm not just saying that because Beladora was asked to provide jewlery for the shoot, which they didn't use but was fine with us because the jewlery was barely noticable)  Each of Turlington's looks were wonderful, from the big hair to the fabulous frocks to the gorgeous gloves to the stylish shoes, and she has never looked more beautiful.

Those gloves. Those eyes. Her imperfect nose. The apparently unpolished nails. Sigh.

Deja Pseu said...

Oh la la. Christy, the clothes, the hair, everything. Just stunning. Gorgeous. I'd much rather see her on a cover than Miley Cyrus any day.

BTW - is it just my browser, but I can't see the whole film. If this is youtube, you can select a smaller frame to display the film in.

But if it's just me, ignore me!

Yep indeed a modern classic, and she just keeps on getting better

Jill said...

She has such Old World beauty.

LPC: Sigh is right
Pseu: Yes...enough already with the celebrities in the cover shots.
Alison: For some reason all of my youtube videos load too large, even if I choose the smallest size. So much for my geek skills.
David: She does just keep getting better, doesn't she?
Jill: I love everything about this shoot and the next time that I go somewhere fancy, I'm getting the Turlington big hair look!

I LOVE this cover and editorial. Meisel and Templar are amazing. Christy is my favourite of the Supermodels and always has been.

If you add a youtube embed it then go to 'Edit html' in compose and change the size from 480 to 400 in the two places on the code. Your youtubes will fit perfectly now xx

Lovely she is just simply one of the most beautiful women in the world xx
Although I did not recognise her in this at first ..my eyes are ageing fast xx

Belle de Ville said...

Christina: Thank you for the html advice...hopefully even with my lack of computer geek skills I will be able to fix the video size.
And yes, isn't that editorial amazing!xx
Ruth: Please don't bring up the subject of age and eyesight...my perfect vision has gone the way of my figure....xx
