The supermodels of the eighties and nineties such as Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Elle MacPherson and Claudia Schiffer are making a powerful return with a number of magazine shoots scheduled for this year.

The August issue of W magazine features Christy Turlington in 'warrior-goddess' fashions by the likes of Calvin Klien, Dolce & Gabbana, Comme de Garcon, Balenciaga, Boss Black, Versace and Prada.

In 1993 Turlington, who is known as one of the nicest and most professional models in the industry, posed nude under her quote, "I'd rather go naked than wear fur," for PETA's anti-fur campaign. She also is the author of "Living Yoga: Creating A Life Practice" a book about another of her life passions.

This stunning black & white photography collection, shot by photographer Michael Thompson is aptly named 'Champion', and reveals the 39 year old Turlington is just as 'super' as she was 20 years ago.
