Christy Turlington is one of the names that comes immediately to mind when you hear the word “supermodel,” but the star’s modeling gigs are few and far between these days — and that’s just how she likes it.

“Now I feel like it’s a treat again,” Turlington says in her June Harper’s Bazaar cover story, “because I do it so seldom. I can appreciate it in a new way.”

She also dishes on her teenage years at the height of her modeling career (no insecurity there, if you can believe it) and how much fun she had partying with names like François Nars and Steven Meisel. But now that’s she’s settled down (with actor Ed Burns and their two children), she looks back on that time fondly.

The model also laughs at Kate Moss’s very unique senses of humor (Moss teased her publicly for wearing a twinset recently) and cringes at the thought of getting back into underwear for her new campaign for Calvin Klein.

“You know, I’m 44 years old, I’m not 14,” she says in the interview. “I’m healthy, I haven’t done anything to myself, I exercise. But I’m not entirely comfortable with myself in underwear either!”

For more on Turlington’s modeling career and her charitable initiatives, pick up the June Harper’s Bazaar, on newsstands May 28, and visit the site. See below for an exclusive inside look at Turlington’s shoot, and tell us: What do you think of her cover photos?
