Christy Turlington Burns Returns to the Runway After 30 Years

After 30 years away from the runway, Nineties supermodel Christy Turlington Burns closed the Marc Jacobs fall 2019 show at New York Fashion Week.
Although appearing in ad campaigns since her last catwalk, Turlington Burns has been absent from the runway since 1989. She made her return at Jacobs’ show Wednesday night dressed in a feathery black gown and matching headpiece.
The supermodel had initially given up the catwalk to pursue a college degree. Turlington Burns has since focused on philanthropy, starting the nonprofit organization, Every Mother Counts, which works to end preventable deaths caused by pregnancy and childbirth around the world.
Turlington Burns isn’t the only model to make her runway return at the Marc Jacobs show. Karlie Kloss, absent from the fashion week runways for the past few seasons, was also seen walking Jacobs’ runway sporting a gray coat. Kloss has also ventured outside of modeling for the past few years, starting Kode With Klossy, a free coding camp for teenage girls, and filming Bravo’s reboot of “Project Runway,” on which she serves as the host.

Marc Jacobs has a history of memorable runway model moments at his shows. During his fall 2014 show, reality TV star turned model Kendall Jenner made

Rodarte Designers Reveal L.A. Landmark Location for Fall 2019 Runway Show

Rodarte designers Kate and Laura Mulleavy have revealed the venue for their upcoming fall 2019 runway show, which will be an L.A. homecoming for the duo.
They’ll be showing Feb. 5 at 2 p.m. at The Huntington Library and Gardens in their hometown of Pasadena, Calif. The landmark was established by Southern California pioneer and railroad tycoon Henry E. Huntington in 1920, first as a library for rare books, photographs and letters written by the likes of Chaucer, George Washington and Henry David Thoreau, and later as an art gallery for the family’s American and European art holdings including Thomas Gainsborough’s famous painting “The Blue Boy.” There are also 120 acres of botanical gardens, including a Japanese, Rose and Desert ones in which to hold an afternoon fashion show.
“We have dreamt of doing a show at The Huntington since we first started designing. Our grandmother and mother introduced us to The Huntington as children and we have been inspired by its beauty ever since,” the designers said. “We specifically drew inspiration from the gardens for our spring 2007 collection, and it will be amazing to see the fall 2019 collection presented in this location.”
The designers are partnering with JNSQ — short for
