Christy Turlington finds her inner “Smile!” on the cover-story by Mikael Jansson for WSJ. Magazine, March 2016. Christy proves the art of brilliancy isn’t met in the canvas of color, rather, it resides in the animation of truth. Stylist, George Cortina, captures the ferocity of fashion prowess, moving through the pages with the spirit of a jungle cat. Long, lean limbs make an appearance as every motion has a purpose. Basking in the glory of all black, her body invites intensity as each design fulfills a destiny. And, while fabrics may be stuck to a somber palate the creative cuts make each piece unique. Beauty comes from within as Hannah Murray uses cosmetics that compliment the skin. Makeup is defined yet mysterious, as the most magical part of this face is the arch of her brows. Quizzical looks can switch to a quasi-questioning glare, taking them from sweet to seductive. Soft shadows circle the lids leaving an echo that reflects the drama of darkness. The eyes are the thing and this Supermodel knows how to use hers. Lips are filled with a just-bitten hue as the deep shine rides over the top. Entranced by her intensity intoxicated by her loveliness, we find ourselves staring straight into her soul. A felt fedora fits over her head with a rider’s strap sewn under the chin. Shay Ashual brings brilliance into the mix by pulling her hair into a chignon. Evocative eyes give rise to oneness as strong features fill the screen.
