Salvadorian-American activist supermodel Christy Turlington Burns has three covers for the May 2019 issue of Vogue Mexico. Photographer Alique captures Christy styled by Celia Azoulay in Altuzarra, Isabel Marant and Tory Burch.
Christy Turlington was one of the first top models to embrace activism and leveraging her global popularity to turn her gaze on others and not her supermodel self. To reach her goal, Turlington founded Every Mother Counts in 2010.
The nonprofit engages and mobilizes new audiences to support maternal health programs around the world, including the United States where maternal deaths among women of color and women living in states like Texas are skyrocketing. The closure of Planned Parenthood clinics in red states has caused maternal death rates in Texas to reach third-w0rld levels.
