Christy Turlington is the new face of YSL

Christy Turlington is the new face of YSL
Yves Saint Laurent

Supermodel Christy Turlington poses for the luxury fashion brand Yves Saint Laurent's new autumn/winter 2009/10 advertising campaign.

She's a mother of two and turned 40 this year, but Christy Turlington certainly hasn't lost what it takes. She demonstrated her continuing supermode' staying power as she was selected once again to be the face of Yves Saint Laurent.

Ms Turlington is just one of the 80s supers experiencing something of a fashion renaissance right now. Linda Evangelista is fronting both Prada and L'Oreal campaigns while their counterpart Claudia Schiffer is starring in the Salvatore Ferragamo ads and is set to appear as the new face of Alberta Ferretti's perfume, launching this autumn.

Christy's sultry adverts for YSL were creatively designed by Stafano Pilati and photographed by Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin in New York earlier this year. With striking hair and make-up by stylists Luigi Murenu and Tom Pecheux, expect to see Christy smouldering on a page near you in August. Clearly, all that yoga is paying off!
