It was revealed last month that 25 years after she first modeled for the brand at 19, 44-year-old Christy Turlington is once again the face of Calvin Klein Underwear. She’s also the new face of Jason Wu and Prada. It’s nice to see fashion houses embracing women for their campaigns instead of just teenage girls. Sure, youth is beauty, but it’s a beauty without nuance or depth. Beauty at 40+ is beauty that has ripened into something else entirely, wizened by time and experience, more regal and sophisticated than the fresh-faced splendor of youth. All hail Christy Turlington, Queen of the Cougars!

It was revealed last month that Salma Hayek’s billionaire husband Francois Henri-Pinault was the mystery father of 90′s supermodel Linda Evangelista’s bastard child, and before you clutch your pearls and gasp with disbelief, you should know that little Augustin was not the product of an affair — he was conceived back in 2006 while Henri-Pinault and Salma were on a break. Long story short, Linda Evangelista is now demanding $46,000 a month in child support from her baby daddy. Us Magazine says:

Evangelista, 46, arrived at Manhattan family court on Monday to argue her case; Support Magistrate Matthew Troy called the request “the largest support order in the history of the Family Court.”

Evangelista’s lawyer argued that monthly sum — totaling $552,000 a year — would cover costs for round-the-clock nannies, drivers and security detail to keep little Augustin well-adjusted and safe.

Half a million dollars a year? I think that’s a bit much. I’m a mother, and I know firsthand that all you really need to keep a child “well-adjusted” and “safe” is a monthly WIC check, a Play Station 3, and the Cartoon Network. It’s up to the public school system to do the rest.
