Full Stretch

Supermodel Christy Turlington makes a welcome return to the pages of Paris Vogue lensed by photographic duo Inez Van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin, Turlington manages to look as relevant and pristinely beautiful as the day she first entered modelling's fray scene during the early-Eighties at age 14. Turlington may have graced countless magazine covers, runways and campaigns throughout her modelling career, however it is her accomplishments beyond modelling's sphere which have kept her in the public's consciousness. Turlington is an ardent campaigner for Every Mother Counts (EMC), an advocacy group committed to promoting maternal and child health care which was born out of her own potentially life threatening condition during the birth of her daughter Grace. Turlington's efforts to use her profile to raise awareness and to rally support for EMC includes the release of a documentary in December 2011 called "No Woman, No Cry" which chronicles the extreme conditions of maternal health care encountered by women in Bangaldesh, Tanzania, Guatemala, and the United States. Turlington remains one of the few iconic models of our time who has managed to traverse modelling's treacherous terrain while retaining her own clear sense of self and whilst continuing to model on her own set terms. In an interview with Gentlewoman, Turlington estimates that her modelling schedule is limited to 15 to 20 days a year for select assignments with key collaborators. Of Inez and Vinoodh, Turlington extols, "I love collaborating with them. They get me; they never put me in a situation where I feel exploited or uncomfortable."
