Christy Turlington has always stood out from the pack. Her legendary beauty, commitment and intelligence have made her the gold standard for models but the enterprising supermodel has moved beyond modeling and is now making a name for herself as a filmmaker. The lastest issue of Vogue follows Christy at 40, getting her masters at Columbia and filming her documentary on motherhood in third world nations, No Woman, No Cry. True renaissance woman that she is Christy manages to find a balance between her new career and the industry that made her famous. Alex Majoli‘s excellent travel photographs capture Turlington at ease while filming in Guatemala whileÂ Steven Klein‘s elegant cover reminds us that Christy is still the girl to beat when it comes to grace and poise.
