Christy Turlington by Steven Meisel for Vogue Italia July 2010

I cannot believe that I had forgotten to post this over summer.  Probably in some misguided attempt to stop posting so many ladylike editorials.  At any rate, Christy’s certainly still got it.  Many models from the nineties have been landing jobs lately with the industry’s desire for a new silhouette and the current fifties revival.  I’m glad that Christy has deigned to continue working amidst this.   Because she’ amazing.  And totally fits the mold without inducing any of the chauvinism from that era.    I love how she’s immaculately dressed amidst the wreckage around her.  It’s a nice study in contrasts that Meisel is very familiar with.  Moreover, you get the old school perfectly-coiffed and perfectly-presented demeanor with the modern Prada humor in it all.  Her looks haven’t changed one iota since she was modeling in the nineties heyday, but her demeanor has.  She has the knowing look of someone who has lived life and has gained from it.  Christy just slays me in this.

Christy Turlington by Mark Seliger for Elle France December 2010

Although Eva pulls a close 2nd, Christy Turlington is most definitely my favorite supermodel of the nineties.  She’s actually the only one in the industry that has a diamond facial structure.  And while this is a relatively simple editorial, Christy is effortlessly gorgeous in it.  The fifties comeback with Marc Jacobs leading the charge in LV is perfect for Christy.  She fits naturally into the silhouette and has a womanly air about her.  Much different from the young waifs we see nowadays.   And she’s lovely in this with easy charm and feminine intuition.

Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Campaign

Christy Turlington, Natalia Vodianova & Karen Elson by Steven Meisel for Louis Vuitton Fall 2010 Campaign

Gorgeously ladylike.  Now this is a trio to watch.  Most excellent.  Louis Vuitton has really moved in a direction that I like.  Marc Jacobs is pushing us away from the waif aesthetic and portraying role models.  They have hips and breasts and excellently-coiffed ponytails :P  Not to mention I love the 50s shape that Marc just threw out last fashion week.

Progress: Fashion Taking Back Fashion

They finally put a model on the cover of American Vogue!!! Of course, it’s Christy Turlington and she had had an exclusive contract with them during the era of the supers but still! This is big. American glossies have a predilection towards celebrities because everyone is soooo obsessed with celebrity gossip and it’s taking away from my fashion magazines. These are fashion magazines, not celebrity magazines. Thank you Anna for bringing back someone actually in the industry instead of a celebrity for hype.
