Can you believe that this woman is going to turn 40 next year? Christy Turlington morphs into a warrior princess in this Grecian-inspired shoot for the August '08 issue of W magazine. The stunning editorial features pieces from Balenciaga, Ralph Lauren, Yves Saint Laurent leather cuffs and some pretty fierce heels from Prada (pictured above, left). As for Christy, well... I guess they don't call her 'super' for nothing.

More from Christy after the cut...

In other Christy news, the supermodel and mum is putting her name towards raising awareness of maternal health issues. She joins Geri Halliwell in lobbying the U.S. government to do more for mothers who suffer side effects during childbirth.

"I've had safe deliveries for both my children because I have had access to skilled medical care. Yet for too many women in the developing world, pregnancy and childbirth is a serious life-and-death issue," said the model, who is also a CARE ambassador.
