Young Helena Christensen

By Elma B.

I just wrote a post on the chameleon like Linda Evangelista and could not help but to do a follow-up on her counterpart, the exotic beauty Helena Christensen.  Helena Christensen is Danish (born in Copenhagen); her father is Danish and her mother is Peruvian. Her grand entry into the fashion industry began after she won Miss Denmark in 1986. 

The well-known video "Wicked Games" by Chris Isaak featured Helena; the video made her infamously sexy outside of fashion industry and around the globe. Helena has modeled for Victoria Secret as their Angel; graced top-knotch fashion magazine covers (e.g., Vogue, Harper's Bazaar, W, etc.); been the face for campaigns of fashion powerhouses (e.g., Chanel, Prada, Revlon, Versacea, Lanvin, Hermes, Valentino, etc.); and has taken up photography (her photographs have appeared in Elle and Marie Claire). Her photography has was exhibited  in Rotterdam, Amsterdam and New York City. For a flashback of the young Helena in the 80s and 90s, please see the photos below.

Most of these photos are of her recently, from between 2010 and now.
