Meet Helena Christensen, a Danish fashion model who has been a Victoria’s Secret Angel and is a former Miss Denmark. See photos, video and a biography of Helena Christensen here.
Christensen is in for a role-reversal as it is reported that she will be joining the photographers in their pit at Saturday’s Façonnable show in Paris. The menswear show is the debut show of her friend Eric Wright. After scorching the ramps on fire, her photography skills are now in ‘fashion’.
“When you are modeling, you are creating a picture, a still life, perhaps something like a silent film. You convey emotion but you are only using your body and nothing else.”
As a biography, Helena Christensen was born on December 25, 1968 in Copenhagen so her age is 40. She won the Miss Denmark title in 1986 and then moved to Paris to pursue her modeling career.
Helena was one of the best models in the world in the 90s. She worked with Tyra Banks, Karen Mulder and Daniela Pestova as an angel for Victoria’s Secret. She was also a spokeswoman for Revlon. She then worked in the music video of Chris Isaak’s song ‘Wicked Game‘.
Christensen owns an antiques shop in Manhattan. She is a co-founder of Nylon magazine and owns a clothing line called Christensen & Sigersen. Her photographs have appeared in Marie Claire and ELLE.
In her personal life, Helena has been linked to INXS frontman Michael Hutchence and Leonardo DiCaprio. She also dated Danish rock band Grand Avenue frontman Rasmus Walter-Hansen for two years and has a son from actor Norman Reedus, with whom she broke up in 2003.
