Please don't ask me why, but I'm obsessed with reading Gwyneth Paltrow's GOOP. So I was extra tickled today when Gwyneth said she'd be sharing her and her friends' favorite books, and that friends list included Christy Turlington. Christy's favorite reads include Faulkner's The Sound and the Fury, Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, and Pride and Prejudice. Gwynnie's? Jane Eyre, Crime and Punishment and The Sheltering Sky by Paul Bowles, which she says "set [her] straight". [Since this newest edition isn't on her site yet, feel free to click through if you're really curious about the favorite reads of Louis Vuitton's Spring 09 face. ] So if you're ever stuck in an elevator with Christy, consider yourself armed for ice breaking.
