’90s supermodel Christy Turlington has made a triumphant return to lingerie modelling at the age of 44 – proving age really is nothing but a number.

Looking just as sensational as she did at the start of her career, California born supermodel Christy has turned up the heat in Calvin Klein’s latest ad campaign to promote its new women’s underwear range – a whole 25 years on from her first modelling assignment for the designer.

In a series of tasteful black and white shots taken by photographer Mario Sorrenti, Christy can be seen flaunting her trim and toned 5ft 10 inch frame, and standing testament to the long-term benefits of jivamukti yoga, a vigorous hatha form of yoga, to which she credits her glowing looks and healthy shape.

The mother of two also believes in the benefits of working out. “Running is a lot like meditation. You get a sense of seeing your life and putting some order to it,” she told Runner’s World last year.

Christy also regularly takes part in marathons. “Health is your greatest wealth, so experiencing a marathon and seeing what you’re capable of is really special,” she told the magazine.

Calvin Klein’s decision to feature 44-year-old Christy as the face of their underwear comes as a welcome move for the designer, and the fashion and beauty industry as a whole – which has come under increasing attack in recent years for favouring younger ambassadors over models in their 40s.

Could it even signal a new direction for the industry? Christy’s new campaign follows close on the heels of a stunning shoot featuring Danish beauty and fellow ‘90s supermodel Helena Christensen, also 44, who recently stripped off as part of a raunchy shoot for FutureClaw magazine.
