Venus in trainers: Helena Christensen

An advertising man for Reebok has an inspired idea

Of all the nineties supermodels Helena was our favourite; curvier than most and in a world where most fashion models look the same, possessing a distinctive but, nonetheless beautiful face.

Possibly our favourite colour Helena photograph

She has just appeared in this striking new advertisement for Reebok trainers wearing, well, nothing except Reebok trainers. Now 41, and the mother of a ten year old, she doesn't do much modelling these days but concentrates on her New York antique shop and her photographic and fashion design careers. Nice to see her back in front of the lens, though!

We have many, many splendid photographs of Helena in our archive and present a small sample here. She was slways happy to strip off for the camera and as she said recently in Elle "I have no problems with showing my body. I’m Danish. Everyone’s naked on the beaches. We don’t really give a shit."
