You’ll Either Love or Loathe Christy Turlington’s Cover of T: The New York Times Style Magazine Singapore

Practically everyone loves seeing supermodels on the covers of fashion magazines. And it’s not often that the Singaporean edition of T: The New York Times Style Magazine generates buzz on our forums. But with a cover subject like Christy Turlington, we’re fully engaged. A firm forum favorite since forever, the all-American beauty thrilled us throughout 2019 on Vogue Mexico, in Marc Jacobs’ delightful advertising campaign and on a trio of gorgeous covers for Vogue  Brazil. For April 2020, Christy stars on the latest issue of T: The New York Times Style Magazine Singapore wearing Saint Laurent and Tiffany & Co. picked by Jack Wang for the straightforward black and white cover shot photographed by Chris Colls.

What more could we ask for? Apparently, a whole lot more. “Hate the fringe. Looks like she had a meltdown on day 12 of her self-isolation,” quipped aracic the moment the cover dropped.

“Oh Chris…why did you do this? This isn’t good,” remarked a dumbfounded bluestar.

“It takes a certain kind of skill to take a bad picture of Christy,” added mikel.

“Was the photographer blind when shooting this? I can’t believe that from all the photos taken this was the best one,” proclaimed avonlea002.

Also far from impressed was dontbeadrag: “Seriously, cancel Chris Colls! Stop this beauty murder! All his recent work just makes everyone look horrible.”

Benn98 disagreed with the majority. “I like it actually. Great portrait. And it’s also not like any of Colls’ work so that makes it refreshing.”

“Always found it hard to criticize anything involving Christy Turlington — this included. I happen to love the hair, reminds me of the hairstyle Christy had during the 90s and I’m just really struggling to find anything negative. A thumbs-up from me!” voiced vogue28.
