NUALA’S FREEZE FRAME: Christy Turlington and Nuala, her yoga-inspired line produced by Puma, will host an exhibition and silent auction next month for photojournalist Steve McCurry at the Visionaire Gallery in Manhattan.

Nuala stands for natural, universal, altruistic, limitless and authentic. But this venture isn’t all about altruism. Nuala has lined up McCurry, a member of Magnum Photos, to shoot its spring advertising campaign. His work will be on display at the Visionaire Gallery at 11 Mercer Street from Sept. 5-8.
