As this upcoming Saturday is not only the second day of the new year, but it will also mark the birthday of Christy Turlington Burns, it seemed fitting to have Christy take over this week’s Model Spotlight.

What we’ve pulled together are some of our favorite shots – some we’re certain you may have seen before while others are sure to be a surprise. Additionally, you’ll find some Christy-approved quotes and favorite images.

Onwards and upwards we go.

Let’s get this edition of Model Spotlight underway!
