I’m not sure this should be titled “Pretty Pictures,” instead, it should be “Loathe: Helena Christensen Looks Effing Amazing and She is 45.” Because I’m jealous. Although I must say that I am very happy she isn’t overly retouched in this shoot. There are a few shots where her skin looks like that of a thirty year old – which doesn’t exactly make me feel like she is normal, but at least she’s slightly human. I’m not even going to speculate about her “secret” to looking this good because I’ve learnt one thing about models from my many years in the fashion industry: they are freaks of nature (albeit beautiful ones) and there’s no point trying to emulate them, even one who is forty five. Shot by Xavi Gordo.
