THE SCANDINAVIAN GODDESS. Helena Christensen!



For those who are not familiar with the term, Scandinavia consists of the three countries Norway, Denmark and Sweden. 


HELENA CHRISTENSEN


The Danish Super model has had a modeling career for more than 20yrs!
So in my book, she's an Icon.
Still modeling to date, Helena has added to her resume, photographer & creative director for Nylon magazine and supported the funding for breast cancer organizations.
What a lot of people don't know is that Helena was a former Miss Denmark and represented Denmark in Miss Universe 1986.
She dated the late INXS frontman Micheal Hutchence and became a world wide name after starring in the music video for Chris Isaak's song Wicked Game.
The video was later featured on MTV's 
"Sexiest video of All-Time"


Christensen appeared on many magazine covers and in fashion campaigns during the 1990s. 
One noted campaign featured her in a 20 by 40 feet (6 by 12 m) billboard in Times Square.
She was in the Victoria's Secret catalog and in their television commercials as one of the signature Angels, along with Tyra Banks, Karen Mulder, Daniela Pestova and Stephanie Seymour. 
                        She also became a spokesmodel for Revlon cosmetics.


With ex love, the late Michael Hutchence.

Today, Helene lives in New York City, has a son named Mingus Lucian Reedus and owns a boutique in Soho.
She was also very good friends with the late actor Heath Ledger and was on her way to his apartment on the day he died :-(
She is a self proclaimed cheese addict!
