Meeting The Supermodel
There are many models in New York City.
We take the subway with them, marvel at their tall skinny legs in high waisted jeans as they walk up Spring Street, and we wonder if they are a bold face name we should know. Today, every model is deemed a supermodel. But we know that's just not true.
If you were there in the 1990's when the term "supermodel" became super popular befitting only the most prominent models like Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, then Claudia Schiffer and Kate Moss, you knew the name Christy Turlington. Christy was the kind looking one with the kind smile and kind eyes. Christy was all-the-way gorgeous, and you couldn't imagine her looking older.
I met Christy recently at the Avon Fragrance "Step Into Sexy" launch at Beauty's on Essex on New York City's Lower East Side. Christy is the spokes-model for the fragrance which, having tested it, smells kind of perfect. It's not to sweet, not too powdery. It's a perfect, every day fragrance that can make your every day feel sexy.
Under the lamps and flashbulbs, Christy and I exchanged hellos and nice-to-meet-yous. I was in awe. She didn't get older one bit. She's simply stunning. And yes, true to her image, perfectly kind.
