Vintage Christy Turlington – African Queen

My mum returned from visiting my family in South Africa at the weekend – boy, did it make me home-sick.

I then happened to be going through some of my old Vogue magazines and found one of my most favourite fashion shoots, Vogue January 1992 – Christy Turlington does White Mischief and Out of Africa.

Two of my most favourite films. If you have never seen them – the fashion, the story, and the scenery in both are just too incredible. Enjoy…….

  1. That strange, strappy white swimsuit (or is it a monokini?) looks like it draws its inspiration from the film Fifth Element, but if this photo shoot is from 1992, perhaps it’s the other way around?

    Anyway, I wish I could pull off a swimsuit like that!

    • I’m not sure monokinis existed in 1992 – I had just gone into the 6th form & whilst that seems a long time ago – the shoot doesn’t – still looks fresh. I hadn’t thought of the swimsuit as being futuristic – but your right there is something quite alienish about it!

  2. I came across your post while I was plotting my most recent entry. Great pics! I lived in SA for 5 years and have recently moved away. All this talk of safari and safari-style has me missing South Africa terribly!

    • I know how you feel. Once you’ve been bitten by the South Africa bug that’s it – love affair forever – especially the safari. My kids are starting to get to the age where I can take them, without them making some huge noise and scaring the wildlife away! Can’t wait – will need to save some pennies though! Cx
