    Default Classify Iconic Former American Supermodel Christy Turlington

    Christy Turlington

    She's often been called 'the most down-to-earth, friendliest, and nicest supermodel.'

    Christy Nicole Turlington Burns is an American model, charity-founder and campaigner, and filmmaker.

    She represented Calvin Klein's Eternity campaign in 1989 and again in 2014,and also represents Maybelline.

    Turlington was named one of Glamour's Women of the Year in 2013,
    and, in 2014, was named included on the annual Time 100 list of the most influential people in the world.

    Turlington initially attracted fame in the late 1980s and early 1990s as a supermodel.

    In 2010, Turlington founded Every Mother Counts, a non-profit organisation
    devoted to making pregnancy and childbirth safe for every mother.

    Every Mother Counts informs, engages, and mobilizes new audiences to take action
    and raise funds that support maternal health programs around the world.

    It was founded after the completion of Turlington's documentary, No Woman, No Cry,
    a film about pregnant women and their caregivers in Tanzania,
    Bangladesh, Guatemala, and the United States.

    In 2013, Turlington directed the documentary film Every Mile, Every Mother,
    which explores Every Mother Counts' participation in long distance running
    to highlight distance from healthcare providers as barriers to women receiving quality care.

    Was born on January 2, 1969 in Walnut Creek, California,
    the middle of three daughters born to Dwain Turlington,
    a pilot for Pan American World Airways,
    and Mara Elizabeth (ne Parker Infante),
    a flight attendant from Cojutepeque, El Salvador.

    She quit smoking after her father died from lung cancer and has since campaigned against smoking.

    She made this tearful commercial against smoking.

    If Christy is 25% or more Native American... then one of her parents must be 50% or more Amerindian.



    I don't seen Amerindian in Christy Turlington's features, nor in her siblings features, nor in her parents features.

    Christy with her late father, (Dwain Turlington, a pilot for Pan American World Airways.)


    With her mother, (Mara Elizabeth (ne Parker Infante), a flight attendant from Cojutepeque, El Salvador.)


    With her mother and siblings: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/femail/a...years-old.html

    I always thought she looked too "different" to just be of Anglo American background. The moment I saw her nose/looked more at her features and found out her mother is from El Salvador, it made sense.

    North Atlantid + Minor Native.

    She looks like a Castiza or less IMO, but judging from her parents, you'd think she'd just be of European ancestry. Maybe she's like Miranda Cosgrove, who is 1/8 Mexican but looks pretty Native/Mestiza.
