Last’s year Age(less) Issue was fronted by Kate Moss looking all groomed and perfectly lady-ish, so inappropriate for the real Kate Moss! But look at Vogue now! Christy Turlington covering Vogue‘s Age Issue, August 2009?
A real treat! It would have been great if it wasn’t for the mass retouching and Photoshopping-sleeking-evening. Who knows, maybe Christy really ended up looking like a 40-year-old (real) woman! (the story continues with more pictures right after the jump!)
The cover photo is signed by Steven Klein (via the zealous Photoshop retouching team) and the inside editorial’s photographer is Alex Majoli. If you were expecting something model-ish for Christy in this age issue by Vogue, don’t hold your breath! Her story is all about filming in Guatemala (a documentary called No woman, no cry portraying the third world motherhood), getting a masters degree at Columbia University, bonus a picture with her family (actor husband Ed Burns and two children Grace and Finn). Not bad. I guess they were out of Angelina-refugees camps news and happy-family image stories with Natalia Vodianova and her aristocratic family.
If you’re not into humanitarian projects, retro-dressing-walking-on-the-beach-with-your-numerous-family, you’re not a successful 40-year-old woman after Vogue standards! (photos via)
