Christy Turlington Releases New Maternity Line & Inspiring Short Film

Why do we love Christy Turlington Burns? Let us count the ways: She’s one of the original supermodels, she’s incredibly humble and down-to-earth (as we learned yesterday when we spoke with her), and most importantly, she is using her influence to champion maternal heath programs around the world. Her nonprofit, Every Mother Counts, just released a new short film, Every Mile, Every Mother, which explores long-distance running as a metaphor for birth, and the barriers that many women face in accessing maternal care. In conjunction with the film’s release, Turlington Burns has partnered with Citizens of Humanity and Shopbop on a capsule collection of maternity denim that will benefit her charity.
