Christy Turlington is the new face of Avon's Slip Into.... fragrance.

The 41-year-old supermodel - who has previously fronted campaigns for Yves St Lauren and Maybelline cosmetics in the past - revealed she is delighted to be associated with the iconic brand.

She described the new scent as: "Just like slipping into a pair of beautiful high heels."

Jeri Finard, senior vice president and global brand president of Avon added: "When you think sensual and sophisticated, you think Christy Turlington Burns. Her timeless beauty is the perfect complement to Slip Into.....

"Like Avon, Christy is about more than surface beauty: She works tirelessly to advance the cause of Women worldwide, a passion that really resonates with us."

Christy - who has two children, Grace, seven, and four-year-old Finn with husband Edward Burns -also recently made her directorial debut with a documentary about pregnant women in four different counties; Tanzania, Bangladesh, Guatemala, and the US.

The model decided to make 'No Woman, No Cry' to highlight statistics - including each day 1,000 women die in childbirth and that pregnancy is the leading cause of death for girls aged 15-19 worldwide - after she almost died from postpartum haemorrhage following the birth of her first child.
