In the campaign the 43 year-old sports everything from floral printed dresses, lightweight cardigans and feminine evening dresses and looks pretty good doing so. 'You too can look as good as Helena Christensen if you wear the slightly fusty dress,' accompanies the campaign, making it pretty clear that the brand intends to use the model to make their signature yummy mummy aesthetic look more stylish and less fuddy duddy.
If there's anything that can get us in the gym and wearing trainers, it's this image of Helena Christensen in the latest Reebok campaign. As you would expect, the 43 year old's body is flawless and definitely gives some of the younger models a run for their money. But this isn't the first time she's fronted the brand's campaign. Back in 2010 she stripped down to nothing other than a pair of trainers.
SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED have partnered up with new scouting agency, Unsigned, to look for Britain's next big faces. Over the past two months their team of judges including model Helena Christensen have visited 17 cities cities across Britain in the search for a guy and girl to front the SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED S/S12 campaign.
After two months on the road, the competition is quickly coming to a close with this weekend seeing head scout Cesar Perin search London streets in a large ditch attempt to add another amazing face to the existing line-up of contestants. Hopefuls were taken to the SWAROVSKI CRYSTALLIZED store on Great Marlborough Street and were made to strike a pose for young photographer, Thomas Knight.
This is a very special competition. The winners won't just be thrust into an agency. Instead, Unsigned will nuture and develop the winners to before presenting the models to agencies that the Unsigned team feel will best compliment the new face.
Sometimes, moments just happen to coordinate and work out. But I do think that if I was to say anything, we were allowed to just be ourselves. Each one of us had a very unique look in the sense that we looked different. There was no conformity about our look—and our personalities too, we had very different personalities, and emotionally and mentally we were different—but I think that that put together created this strong force of women. And no one told us to be any different. No one ever came up to me and said, “you need to reshape your body, to lose weight, or to be more outgoing, or less outgoing”. We were just allowed to be us, and I think at the end of the day, isn’t that the whole point of being a human being? To be allowed to be yourself, to be accepted the way you are? Ironically enough, in a business where a lot of styles and looks are dictated in some way, from the point of view of the media onto the audience, I think it’s so great that we got to just remain our quirky selves and have the body shapes that we had without anyone ever pointing a finger at anything. Maybe that’s what gave our careers longevity.
