Christy Turlington Steps Into Avon

The supermodel will rep a sexy new scent

Don’t you just love that ultra-feminine feeling you get when you slide on a sexy pair of stilettos? Of course, which is why Avon’s newest scent takes its inspiration from the transformative power of high heels. To front the power-woman fragrance, dubbed Slip Into Sexy, Avon wanted someone sensual yet sophisticated. Who better than Christy Turlington? Fresh off her directorial debut, the stunning supermodel has made it clear that she’s equal parts brains and beauty. Her documentary No Woman, No Cry, which zeroes in on the issue of maternal mortality, had its British premiere in London last weekend. While the scent isn’t due out until October 2011, it promises to be a stunner with oriental floral notes of black raspberry, freesia, violet and orchid. We’re loving the resurgence of supermodels past. Which supermodel are you dying to see make a big comeback?
