Turlington Burns has a long-standing relationship with the house, beginning
with her first runway show for Calvin Klein for the Fall 1987 season. In 1988,
Irving Penn photographed Turlington Burns for her first Calvin Klein
Collection advertising campaign. That same year, she became the face of Calvin
Klein’s timeless scent, ETERNITY, for the fragrance’s launch campaign captured
by Bruce Weber. Turlington Burns continued to work with legendary
photographers, like Steven Meisel, Mario Testino, Peter Lindbergh and Jurgen
Teller, for several more advertising campaigns for the Calvin Klein
Collection, Calvin Klein Underwear, Calvin Klein Jeans, and Calvin Klein
Swimwear brands, Contradiction fragrance, as well as three additional ETERNITY
fragrance campaigns.

While leading an illustrious career in modeling, Turlington Burns has gone on
to direct and produce No Woman, No Cry – a documentary film about the global
state of maternal health. Following the release of her film in 2010, she
founded Every Mother Counts (EMC), a campaign to improve the health and
well-being of girls and women worldwide. The organization’s mission is to end
preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world.
