One thing about being a supermodel is that if you keep yourself in shape and your looks don’t fade, you can continue to work. Christy Turlington Burns has done just that.

Athleta’s new fall campaign focuses on togetherness and motherhood as the central themes to their fall 2022 campaign. Christy Turlington Burns is front and center in this campaign which stars the supermodels’ mom, sister, niece, and sister-in-law.

This fall 2022 campaign was photographed on the beach by Cass Bird. Christy Turlington Burns is the founder of Every Mother Counts, will also take part in an exclusive Q+A with Athleta’s platform AthletaWell which will go live on August 1.
