Helena Christensen Is Pro-Nudity Past 40

Could middle-aged women become the new ideal of female hotness? It would seem Helena Christensen thinks so, as the 40-year-old supermodel has been making moves to adjust image standards. She appeared nude on the cover of i-D this month (along with Eva Herzigova and Claudia Schiffer), and is also in the buff for a spread (no pun intended) in Elle‘s January issue. According to the Telegraph, Christensen is, “flabbergasted that people could be offended by pictures of naked women.” In the accompanying article, Helena also admits: “I have no problems with showing my body. I love the female shape. It’s crazy — you can have movie posters with men with machine guns but oh, God forbid you show nipples.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. While we give kudos to Christensen’s embrace of the female form at all ages, we do have to say … do many 40-year-old women look as good as her naked? [Telegraph.co.uk]
