Helena Christensen, Poses Nude, Looks Amazing at Age 44
Middle age has never looked so good! Helena Christensen -- she of the startlingly blue eyes, dark hair, and rockin' body -- is 44, but the Danish stunner is still an 11 when it comes to her appearance. The former Victoria's Secret model poses in the new issue of FutureClaw, and whether she's in revealing lingerie or in her birthday suit, one thing's for sure: She has some unbelievable genes.
The photo spread feels incredibly intimate. Not only did the photographer shoot the images in the model's NYC home, which is decorated in a downtown-bohemian style, but Christensen herself did the styling -- meaning she picked out the sheer negligee, she chose the fuschia granny panties and too-tight bolero, she paired the strapless black bra with nothing but a swan figurine, and she opted to go completely nude. (In one shot, she poses naked on a chair in front of her shoe collection.)
"There are some of my favorite items in there, yeah. It was interesting to have to go through my own clothes for a shoot. I tend to dress it items that don't necessarily go so well together," said Christensen in the accompanying interview. "I like when style isn't obvious. I always end up feeling more comfortable wearing a combination of something quirky and strange. Maybe style shouldn't so much be defined, but rather felt."
Christensen -- who shot to fame in 1991 in Chris Isaak's sultry "Wicked Game" music video -- isn't just a pretty face and hot body. She co-founded Nylon magazine and is now a working photographer. She also shares a son, Mingus, 12, with ex-husband Norman Reedus (of Walking Dead).
