Christy Turlington became one of the world’s most famous supermodels after her campaign for Calvin Klein was seen all over the world in the 1980s. And now, 25 years later iconic 44-year-old model poses again for the brand that changed her life.
The fabulous Turlington shows off pieces from the brand’s fall 2013 collection in a series of sultry black and white ads as well as a 30-second clip.
Little has changed, however, she still looks as good, if not better in these pics. And proving how little she’s changed since her similar shoot in 1988, the model and actress wears her hair slicked back and gazes into the camera in the newly-released video.
In the video she says: “Clothes tell a story. Sometimes it’s true. Sometimes it’s what you want people to think. But this says what I really feel. It’s not a secret, just personal. You might be surprised. Just between you and me.”
The clip’s narrative, which calls to mind Brad Pitt’s Chanel voiceovers, doesn’t make much sense, but the mother-of-two still looks gorgeous in it.
The short video, which shows the catwalk star in all her Amazonian glory, finishes with the collection tagline: “Iconic new bras re-imagined for every woman.”
Inspired by the brand’s signature and provocative imagery, the multimillion-dollar campaign will be comprised of a mix of print, digital and outdoor advertising timed to coincide with September magazine issues.
Photographed in Vieques, Puerto Rico, imagery is inspired by the brand’s signature intimate and provocative advertising, which highlights an assortment of the most iconic, must-have Calvin Klein Underwear essentials that represent the modern, sensual and sophisticated aesthetic for which the brand is known, says the Women’s Wear Daily.
“The most memorable campaign I shot for Calvin Klein was probably either an Eternity fragrance campaign, which I did also in 1988, or a Steven Meisel underwear campaign that I did in the mid to late ’90s.”
“It was great shooting with Mario Sorrenti. We have worked together before but never for Calvin Klein, and both of us have had a long history with this brand, so it’s kind of nice to have a first-time experience with him and Calvin Klein,” she said.
Turlington Burns has a long-standing relationship with the house, beginning with her first runway show for Calvin Klein for the Fall 1987 season. In 1988, Irving Penn photographed Turlington Burns for her first Calvin Klein Collection advertising campaign.
Originally, the model became the face of the popular brand’s Eternity fragrance in 1988 before modelling their underwear range in the nineties – when lucrative modelling contracts with the likes of Versace established her as one of the catwalk elite, says the Daily Mail.
The provocative campaign, will be featured in prominent magazine titles – such as the international editions of Vogue, ELLE, Vanity Fair and Harper’s Bazaar – appearing in 20 countries.
