Supermodel Saturday with Christy Turlington
Supermodel turned superhero.
In honor of Christy Turlington Burns’ Every Mother Counts organization’s 10th-anniversary helping mothers deliver their children safely worldwide, V would like to salute the long-standing V model, supermodel icon, and philanthropist. In this week’s V Collector’s Club line-up, Turlington graces our covers for V19 and V48 which are both here for purchase.
As one of the first to connect visibility to a cause, being beautiful wasn’t enough for Christy—instilling change for the greater good superseded. She now spearheads her organization fulltime since it was founded in 2010, to carry out its mission to “make pregnancy and childbirth safe everywhere,” after almost life-threatening complications wit having her daughter Grace in 2003. In celebration of the 10 year anniversary, they are hosting a series of virtual events—including a virtual race happening at Big Sur tomorrow—that all can take part in. Find out more by visiting Every Mother Counts, and for details on how you can help, get involved, and donate.
