Helena Christensen may appear to want to go unnoticed on her way to brunch this week — side note, being able to “brunch” on a weekday is such a luxury — but we can’t help but admire her cute and casual outfit. Pulled together and polished, yet comfortable and easy, this is an outfit worth imitating on those off-days where neither high heels nor sweats will do. Get the look after the jump! Keep reading »
Look, it’s model Helena Christensen tooling around New York, getting checked out by a skeevy hot dog vendor dude! Stars, they’re just like us! We’re really feeling Helena’s fall-forward outfit here, not the least of which because she’s openly defied Standard Matchy-Matchy Rules and has put together an outfit that’s cute and quirky without being over the top. Her outfit is proof that things don’t always, always have to go together perfectly. Keep reading »
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] Keep reading »
Me-ow! What a way to start the week: Eva Herzigova, 36, Helena Christensen, 40, and Claudia Schiffer, 39, in nothing but thigh-high leather boots and big, blown-out hair. Clearly these “aging supermodels” aren’t doing anything of the sort. The three were shot by photographer Kayt Jones for this month’s i-D magazine. (And for those of you who may need slightly more skin, check out the video of the shoot. Yes, we’re naked lady pushers today, so?) [i-D] Keep reading »
Nearly 40, Claudia Schiffer is lookin’ good on the cover of the April issue of Vogue and we have to admit, it’s nice to see a friendly face- not to mention an adult one. In an age where models seem to be getting younger and younger, Schiffer is part of a trend of talented women breaking through the ageist industry and proving they’re as sexy and valued as ever! As Schiffer tells Vogue, i“All of my friends are my age and we are all aging at the same time. We talk about it and moan, but it doesn’t bother me.” And we highly doubt any man could complain about this knock out! Seriously, the confidence of these sexy models, who are not teenagers anymore, are beating the odds of a highly critical, looks based business. Thanks to the women in this slideshow, true beauty is something we all can achieve at every age.
