The Miguel Reveriego shot, Helena Christensen Vogue Spain September 2011 editorial is proof positive that despite popular misconception, there is still life (and work) in fashion magazines for models over the age of 40.
The Helena Christensen Vogue Spain September 2011 editorial is a return to prominence for the 42-year-old stunner. She began her modelling career after winning Miss Denmark in 1986, and then going on to represent Denmark in 1986's Miss Universe pageant.
Christensen was considered one of world's first supermodels, rising to fame as a Victoria's Secret Angel alongside Tyra Banks, Stephanie Seymour, and Karen Mulder.
In this editorial, Christensen shows age is nothing but a number by appearing seductive in high-waisted leather shorts and lingerie.
My favorite image in the Helena Christensen Vogue Spain September 2011 shoot features the Dutch and Peruvian beauty in tight black shorts, elaborate pumps, a black fur sweater, and a fluorescent green bra. She is leaned back in the chair, her gaze exuding confidence, class, and control. The shoot perfectly encapsulates the editorial, as well as where Christensen is in her career right now. 25 years in the game, and still as dominant as ever.
The Helena Christensen Vogue Spain September 2011 editorial is on newsstands now.
