Helena Christensen is Red Magazine's September 2013 cover model. The supermodel mom is nearly 45 years old but you'd never now it. And in case you're wondering if she's had any work done to keep herself looking so fabulous, you'll find all the answers you need on that and more in the Red September issue on shelves August 7th. For those who can't wait, here's a sneak peek at the interview...
On why she defended a pregnant Kim Kardashian:
“I feel I let myself down if I don’t speak out about something that is utterly unfair. [With Kim] I looked beyond the fact she’s a public figure and took the very simple stand that a pregnant woman should never be judged in the disgusting ways that are out there right now .”
On exercise and keeping her body in shape:
“Now I exercise. I walk over there [an old boxing club she goes to twice a week] sighing and the hour goes soooo slowly. Like literally, I do a lot of exercises and look up at the clock and seven minutes have passed! I’m glad I didn’t exercise when I was younger, as I think I would have noticed more changes. I started in my mid-thirties and it has kind of neutralised the changing period.”
On plastic surgery:
“There’s a fine line between it looking alright and looking freaky. That’s what holds me back. Can you imagine waking up after having something done and realising they had done just that tiny speck too much? I think the best thing is to get dimmers on your lights and, when they don’t work, switch to candles!”
“I mean if it happens, it happens. We’re having such a good time, it’s not something I ever needed or felt was necessary to add to my relationship. I think relationships are so intriguing and beautiful and complicated. If you can find a partner with whom you feel safe and calm and comfortable, who you feel you can learn things from and who can learn from you, it’s not like you need anything else to seal it.”
