Helena Christensen is “grateful” she started modelling before social media was created.
The 49-year-old supermodel ruled the fashion world in the ‘90s and along with Christy Turlington, Linda Evangelista, Cindy Crawford, Naomi Campbell, Elle Macpherson and Claudia Schiffer was dubbed “The Magnificent Seven” of the catwalk.
Christensen has an Instagram account which she enjoys using but she is glad she didn’t have to be logged on for self-promotion at the height of her career because she believes social media has taken away the “mystery” from modeling.
Speaking exclusively to BANG Showbiz, she said: “[Social media] is in some ways very positive but at the same time I am so grateful that I started modeling at a time where we didn’t have to take all that into consideration because that adds a whole different dimension and it becomes completely different. There was mystery of just being the girl in the photo and you can make up your own stories about it, nowadays it’s all in your face.”
