A nude photo of this famous supermodel caused an awful scene

Apr 29, 2024

Big name supermodels are the franchise players of the fashion industry.

The job entails taking thousands of photos that are designed to push the artistic envelope.

And a nude photo of this famous supermodel caused an awful scene.

Christy Turlington helps define a decade 

Turlington, Naomi Campbell, Linda Evangelista, and Cindy Crawford were the four supermodels who appeared in George Michael’s iconic Freedom ‘90 music video that helped launch the era of the supermodel and defined the fashion industry in the 1990s.

They became so famous that they were simply known by their first name as they took over the runways, cable TV, and Madison Avenue marketing campaigns.

Even Cindy Crawford – who exploded as a pop culture icon in the early 1990s thanks to her appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue and hosting MTV’s House of Style – considered Turlington the standout talent of their peer group.

“Christy is the most classic beauty,” Turlington Burns’s friend (and fellow supermodel) Cindy Crawford told Harper’s Bazaar. “She’s the only one of us that the Met used as a mannequin. She has the type of beauty that would be described as beautiful in any century.”

Christy Turlington relays embarrassing story about a nude photo

In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, Turlington recounted how nude photos she took as part of her modeling career surfaced publicly.

Turlington said she was watching one of her son’s basketball games when the opposing team got a hold of the pictures and began using them to taunt her son.

“I was surprised it hadn’t happened sooner,” Turlington stated. 

“But at the same time, I was like, ‘This is so rude!’” Turlington added.

Turlington told the magazine she thought she had nothing to be ashamed of but only felt embarrassed when the school turned it into a “bigger thing,” she said of the incident. 

 “All I wanted to do was disappear,” Turlington admitted but quickly added, “I don’t feel embarrassed about anything.” 

“Regretting things is a waste of time,” Turlington explained.

Turlington leaves the world of modeling

But just when Turlington’s career – as well as the era of the supermodel – hit its peak, she quit the industry.

Turlington stopped modeling in 1994 at the age of 25 and attended New York University, where she graduated cum laude with a Bachelor Arts degree with concentration in comparative religion.

Turlington has nothing against the world of modeling, as she still works to this day; however, she said she doesn’t take a salary, believing her work at the 501c(3) nonprofit Every Mother Counts should be to advance causes she cares about.

“I feel lucky to have the option [to model],” Turlington stated. “It’s still my livelihood. I don’t take a salary here [at Every Mother Counts] because that doesn’t feel right, but this is my main job.”
