Helena Christensen is a dying breed.
Not just because she's one of the iconic 90s supermodels who will never be duplicated, but because she's not the kind of celebrity who jumps on every collaboration!
Unlike so many of her fellow models who've done collaborations with beauty brands and clothing lines, Helena's taken it easy, with her first partnership being an upcoming lingerie line with Triumph.
Still, the Danish supermodel doesn't regret not boarding the brand bandwagon sooner. She said:
"I never did it, and I probably lost out on a lot of deals because of that, but it just didn't feel right. I always thought, 'OK, you've got what you need, you've saved up what you could, so now you can work on things that inspire you.'"
She also really doesn't care if she has a lot of followers on social media sites like Twitter or Facebook. She explained:
"I'm not ambitious in that regard at all. Whether it's modelling, photography, designing, whatever I'm doing, I like little intimate projects. Most of what I'm doing just now as a photographer is for little underground magazines - not something that everyone is going to see. When someone approaches me, and says, 'we have this great project, it will have millions of viewers,' I think, 'oh god, no! That sounds horrible!'"
But she IS passionate and ambitious about her lingerie line, because she LOVES bras and panties, and she's been an avid lingerie collector for years!
"I've really learned how different female body shapes are, and how many little details you need to consider when you're creating lingerie. How to enhance the parts of a woman's body that are beautiful, how to shape the parts that need to be shaped - and then how different we all are. I try not to create from just an aesthetic approach, but also consider comfort; the technical details are very important. It's the most feminine thing that you can put on your body, so it has to be right for a woman to feel good."
Judging by how her pieces look on her own ridiculously hot bod, we'd say she really knows what she's doing!
