She’s already a supermodel and a successful photographer, and now Helena Christensen has added another string to her bow by designing her own lingerie range.
The 43-year-old proudly showcases the Helena Christensen for Triumph collection in a stunning new campaign for the underwear brand.
Her designs were apparently inspired by 1940s femme fatale allure and also feature 1970s bohemian elements and 1980s bondage touches.
What a Triumph! Helena Christensen models her 'Helena Christensen for Triumph' collection which goes on sale in January. The 43-year-old has designed the range herself

‘I am delighted to create my own lingerie line together with Triumph. After three seasons with Triumph Essence, it was a real pleasure to design and create such great pieces of my own,’ says Helena.
‘I have put a lot of personal experience into the collection, selected all the fabrics and decided on all colours – which range from juicy orange to citrus yellow, aqua and a powdery retro mauve-pink.
‘I think this first collection is a reflection on what I have experienced and loved from my career and personal life.'
Helena was photographed at her beach house near Copenhagen, Denmark, for the gorgeous shoot, where she was given full creative direction.

In one image she is pictured
modelling a triangle bra with soft pink tulle covered in black lace and
in another she showcases a push-up bra and high waisted knickers.
Helena, who has a 12-year-son named Mingus with former husband Norman Reedus, also models a loose-fitting
camisole in an art-nouveau-inspired print with citrus yellow straps and a
v-shaped lace panel.
The gorgeous brunette has previously starred in several campaigns for Triumph Essence.
While she designed and modelled three
pieces of lingerie for the brand’s Spring/Summer 2012 range, this is
the first full collection she has created.
The Helena Christensen for Triumph collection will hit stores in January 2013.
