A Woman a Week

Page 3 girls run for cover.

You have a sex siren double your age who at forty-four is sweeping the board of contenders for the sexiest woman around – and who will outrun, outclass, outshine and outstrip the lot of you. She has charisma and a body to cause tremors in every sex aspiring man or woman who comes her way.

Enter Helena Christensen, a Danish fashion model, former Victoria’s Secret Angel, beauty queen and an accomplished photographer. She has also served as creative director for Nylon magazine, designed clothing and supported funding for breast cancer organisations and other charities.

Christensen was a leading star in the 1990s, appearing on many magazine covers including Vogue, Elle, Harper’s Bazaar, and W, as well as in fashion campaigns for Revlon, Chanel, Versace, Lanvin, Prada, Sonia Rykiel, Hermes, Valentino and Karl Lagerfeld. One noted campaign featured her in a twenty-by-forty-foot billboard in Times Square, bare except for a strategically placed banana leaf.

In 1991 she starred in the music video for Chris Isaak’s song ‘Wicked Games’ and the video was later featured on MTV’s ‘Sexiest Videos of all time’.

Christensen is without doubt a formidable woman, no less a goddess whose body must have been crafted by the gods in celebration of lasting beauty. A woman in her forties endowed with a good figure and a sizzling sexual appeal is at the peak of her libido, and is like a cauldron whose thrust and heat is hard to contain. For the feeble hearted, she’s a devouring creature, a passion seeker whose tentacles are erotically geared to give the maximum pleasure to those of us mortals she favours.

Christensen has proved to be a woman for any season. Beautiful, bold, a sexual icon and a woman who has mastered the art of stripping in her own searing fashion with no defined boundaries.

At the age of forty-four, as these stunning photographs show, she still reigns supreme and is likely to go on until her flame expires – to the chagrin of her adoring fans.

I can’t help but admire and salute her in equal measure.
