Let’s face it, when it comes to models, you can keep your Cara, Kendall and Suki. The original supermodels were, and still are, in a league of their own.
Christy Turlington, who reigned on catwalks throughout the 90s with the likes of Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell, regularly updates her Instagram account with throwback pictures from the glory days.
Turlington is 47, but still looks 20 years younger. She’s now a keen marathon runner and yoga advocate but, judging from some of these images, she wasn’t averse to the odd wild night on the town with her supermodel pals back in the day.
Christy regularly posts pictures with Kate Moss, who she endearingly refers to as “Wagon”, and there are many of Naomi Campbell in the days before she developed her penchant for flinging phones at assistants.
The American supermodel rose to fame in 1989 after fronting Calvin Klein’s Eternity campaign. Last year, she was joined by actor husband Ed Burns for a brand new campaign for the fragrance.
Turlington, Campbell and Linda Evangelista have long been dubbed the “Trinity” of the modelling world due to the dizzy heights of their success.
Throughout her career, Turlington has appeared on over 500 magazine covers, with W releasing a special issue dedicated to her to mark her 40th birthday.
She is also a keen writer and has contributed to Marie Claire and Teen Vogue She also counts Bono as one of her best friends, but we won’t hold that against her.
The mother-of-two has been married to Burns since 2003, and is an avid campaigner for maternal health programmes throughout the world.
Last year, Burns revealed the secret to their marriage was “Staying in New York and not moving to Los Angeles.”
He said: “We don’t go out much. We are both super tight with our families and that helps you stay grounded.”
His wife’s sensational looks also probably have something to do with it.
