Helena Christensen still shines like a rockstar
Recently posed for FutureClaw magazine’s Issue 6 in her NYC apartment, superstar HELENA CHRISTENSEN paused to give a few personal comments. Photographed by Gregory Derkenne, she looks stunning in outfits she herself styled… and (spoiler alert) sometimes nothing at all! Gianni Versace himself once said she has the greatest body ever- how could we disagree. We have to admit, we’re jealous of her tan, her body and her over 30 fabulousness …talk about flawless!
In this issue, Christensen talks about icons, love and some of her favorite fashion lines. Some highlights from her words shared with FutureClaw’s editor in chief, Bobby Mozumder:
FutureClaw: Gianni Versace said you had the best body in the world. Who do you think has the best body?
Helena Christensen: All the naked women in Helmut Newtons pictures. The were long, lean, toned…yet feminine and curvaceous.
FC: Read that your favorite female icon is Marilyn Monroe. Who is your favorite male icon?
HC: She’s one, Jean Seberg and Jane Birkin are two others. Their style is effortless, personal and greatly compliment their personalities. I think Willem de Koenig and Lucien Freud had amazing presence and style, not to mention other worldly talents.
HC: If a guy wants to be your boyfriend, he better…
HC: Make me laugh, love and feel. And make me feel I do the same for him.
FC: 19 fashion brands you like (hey, you did say 19 is your favorite number..)
HC: I wish my favorite number was 3 right now… but ok, 19 it is, not in any particular order:
Tsumori Chisato, Camilla Staerk, Isabel Marant, Veronique Branqhino, Marc Jacobs, Peter Jensen, Marni, McCartney, Vanessa Bruno, Dries Van Noten, Comme des Garcons, Helmut Lang, Baum und Pferdgarten, Henrik Vibskov, Martin Margiela, Prada, Sybilla, Edun, Martine Sitbon.
