Date: October 7. Venue: Macy’s (Herald Square)
On the sixth floor setting of Stella 34 Trattoria restaurant, guests gathered for some Italian goodness and a night with Cindi Leive (Glamour Magazine Editor-in-Chief) and Calvin Klein Underwear model Christy Turlington. Sparkling wine flowed as trays of carpaccio and focaccia circled about. In conversation with Cindi Leive, Christy revels at her latest CK Underwear ad campaign, reflects on her twenty year reign as the face of Calvin Klein, while reminiscing on past collaborations with fashion figures Grace Coddington (Vogue Magazine Creative Director) and fashion photographer Irving Penn. Despite adversity, Christy continues to prevail. Complications with the 2003 birth of her daughter motivated her to create the documentary film No Woman, No Cry. Mainstreamed on the OWN channel, No Woman, No Cry looks into the barriers women face with critical maternal care. Preceding this film, Christy kick-started Every Mother Counts, an organization aimed at eliminating preventable pregnancy and childbirth related deaths. Christy enjoys advocating her cause via Twitter and uses Instagram to share her world with fans.
