Christy Turlington is one of the most beautiful souls to ever walk this Earth. One of the original 'Supermodels' of the 1990's (along with Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Stephanie Seymour and Kate Moss) she has graced over 500 magazine covers, numerous music videos, and demonstrated to the world that a career in fashion modeling need not lead to drug abuse, sexual promiscuity, scandal or self-destruction. By all accounts Christy Turlington is a loving mother (to daughter Grace and son Finn), wife (to filmmaker/actor Edward Burns) and advocate of spiritual awareness (born a Catholic she's also become a voice for Yoga) and social betterment (giving time and energy for many social issues beside friend Bono of U2). She's a joy and an inspiration to millions of fans and admirers, and typifies both beauty on the outside and beauty on the inside.
"She is a spiritus mundi, a soul spun of stardust, but it's what's inside that shines. She's a real Christy Turlington."
