The ever-beautiful Christy Turlington proves that beauty truly has no age, as she appears on the cover of the July issue of British Vogue after an 18 year hiatus. The supermodel, now 45 years old, looks absolutely flawless on the glossy cover appropriately titled, “Ageless Style.” Appearing on a whopping number of 14 Vogue covers between 1986-1996, Turlington’s stunning return after nearly two decades makes us wonder if she really ever took a break, and more importantly, what her skin care regimen is.

Wearing a loose knit mohair Acne sweater and sporting barely-there makeup, Turlington’s natural beauty truly shines. Isn’t there some sort of supermodel Hall of Fame? Because we’re pretty sure she should be elected in immediately for this one.

Appearing on her first Vogue Cover in July of 1986 wearing Donna Karan (pictured below), it seems as if time has truly stood still for Turlington. Seriously, it’s like she is superhuman.

Over the span of her career, Turlington has had contracts with dozens of designers – from Calvin Klein to Versace – as well as many cosmetics companies including Maybelline. She has also proved to be much, much more than just a pretty face, as she has been involved in many humanitarian efforts including CARE, a major international relief agency, and is also an ambassador for Product Red. Turlington even launched her own campaign in 2010 called Every Mother Counts, in effort to stop preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth worldwide. Oh, and did we forget to mention that she created the documentary, No Woman, No Cry, to accompany her campaign? Supermodel, humanitarian, and filmmaker…she truly puts the “super” in super model.
