"I love fashion, but I'm not obsessed with it."
Just to prove that we are not all about frivolity and fluff around here, today's style inspiration is a woman of substance and she happens to look fabulous all while trying to make the world a better place.
In the world of fashion models and beautiful people, there a select few that ever reach the pinnacle of the catwalk and land the title of supermodel. Christy Turlington is one of the original 'Super Models', a term coined to refer to a group of the most popular and highest paid models in the '90's, which included Cindy Crawford, Linda Evangelista, and Naomi Campbell to name a few.
And as if her plate is not already on the full side, she is in the process of acquiring her masters degree in public health at Columbia University.
Born on January 2,1969 in Walnut Creek, California, she currently resides in NYC with her husband and two children.
Mrs. Turlington Burns, as she prefers to be known, (she is married to the actor, Edward Burns) seems to have the model chic look down to an art. She has eschewed the spotlight and paparazzi for a more sedate and somewhat private existence. She dresses for that life in simple classic pieces pared with minimal but eye-catching accessories that complete her polished look.
Another instance where she revs up her outfit (a gorgeous LBD in its own right) with the placement of a couple of strategic accessories. Love the wide bracelet cuff and bows on her ankle-strap shoes!
Strolling the streets of NYC in a casual blazer (pared with a similar hued scarf) and jeans, the look doesn't 'say stare at me' but how could you not be drawn to look at that lovely face (and that large gorgeous red tote, might I add!)
During her pregnancies, she stuck to the classics, punching up the pieces like this white tunic shirt with subtle details like the extra-long flared sleeve.
