biography

Birth Date: January 2, 1966
Nationality: United States
Born in Connecticut, Christy Turlington was
discovered at the age of 14 by a photographer
while horseback riding. She was signed to a small
agency, although she did not pursue modeling full
time until after her graduation from high school, at
which point she moved to New York City. She was
known as one of the members of the so called
"trinity" along with Linda Evangelista and Naomi
Campbell, so named because influential
photographer Steven Meisel often booked them
together. Her career was hugely successful as she
became the face of numerous brands both high end
and commercial. She has also appeared on more
than 500 magazine covers worldwide. Outside of
modeling, she has pursued a degree at NYU with
concentrations in comparative religion and Eastern
philosophy. More recently, she has expanded to
become involved in several business ventures
including two clothing lines and a skincare line. She
has two children with husband Ed Burns.
