Christy Turlington is one of the original supermodels and on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar, she proves why.

[Photographer] Dan [Jackson] said to me, ‘When you smile you look like you’re 16.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah – and then there’s my neck.’”
As for returning to her roots, Turlington said, “you know, I’m 44-years-old, I’m not 14. I’m healthy, I haven’t done anything to myself, I exercise. But I’m not entirely comfortable with myself in underwear either. I love Calvin. He was a huge part of my career. He’d just married Kelly, and it was this whole new era.
