Helena Christensen's quotes

  • Speaking in grand understatment about her famous catwalk figure; "I have a bit here and a bit there. Or as we say in Denmark, something to the courtyard and something to the street.""
  • In modelling, there is no point in trying to prove you have a brain, so why even bother? I'd sooner save the energy for something more meaningful.
  • I want to live to be 120. That's when I will start worrying about my age.
  • Denmark is like a secret little place with its own special language.
  • A beautiful person is someone who stays true to themselves and their spirit; someone who is self-confident and can make you smile.
  • If I have an hour in a city, I go to vintage stores first because it's so much cooler to find a piece that is unique. I love the thought of some girl having worn it before and living her life in it.
  • I am a serious food lover and Peruvian cuisine is one of the best in the world.
  • I always loved the style of Jean Seberg, Jane Birkin and Marilyn Monroe.
  • Harbour Island in the Bahamas is a wonderful little island with beautiful beaches, a great restaurant culture and friendly, welcoming atmosphere.
  • From the minute I wake up until I go to bed I think about food.
  • Cheese is one of my great weaknesses, I could eat the stuff by the pound.
  • I had never done any serious acting before, but I decided that it was a chance that I should take.
  • I find it utterly bizarre that total strangers write about your life in a completely fictional manner.
  • I felt like I was in the best photography school in the world - I had Herb Ritts, Bruce Weber, Richard Avedon and Irving Penn teach me.
  • I don't look at fashion the way other people do.
  • I believe food is the most brilliant invention ever.
  • Like any woman, I worry about my body.
  • It's really intimidating to go on the beach in a bikini.
  • It's incredible to have been part of fashion history - my whole career has been one big highlight.
  • I've taken my knickers off. My friends told me my panty line was visible, so I went without.
  • I'm a fun person. I like cracking jokes and being completely nerdy.
  • I would love to photograph Stephen Hawking. I am just fascinated by science, I really am.
  • I wasn't worried about turning 40 at all.
  • I love playing around with vintage fabrics and lace.
  • I like people who dress quirkly and differently. Like in womenswear, thank god for Helena Bonham Carter!
  • There have been times when I've bought a whole pound of cheese and walked down the street and eaten it in one go.
  • There will always be a desire for something new, fresh and innovative, as well as a yearning and respect for timeless elegance and beauty.
  • The more people explore the world, the more they realize in every country there's a different aesthetic. Beauty really is in the eye of the beholder.
  • Modelling is a silly, crazy business.
  • So many times I've wanted to crack up, standing there stiff while seven women are crawling round my toes fixing hems and the designer's having a freak-out because the denim cuffs are crooked. I'm on the verge of hysteria.
  • Kate is going to come back, she is going to be super-strong again. Everybody is going to want her again because she is that kind of person. She is very professional and beautiful and she is going to be around forever.
  • I was once stranded on a broken-down boat in shark-infested waters in the middle of the Indian Ocean for five days before we were rescued while doing a 'Vogue' shoot.
  • I still love taking pictures with Polaroid film. For me, it offers the most beautiful way of capturing reality and transferring it onto a flat piece of paper.
  • I am very much aware of the visual side of things. I do a lot of photography. I often take Polaroids of things that strike me as visually interesting, just to remember them and perhaps use later.
  • Women can explore so much in dressing. But if I was a guy I would wear vintage suits constantly. With crazy ties!
  • When you are modelling, you are creating a picture, a still life, perhaps something like a silent film. You convey emotion but you are only using your body.
  • When on the set of a film, you have to play natural for entire scenes in a very unnatural environment. You have to express emotions and interact with other actors and also use your voice.
  • This was all very new to me and I did not want to ruin his film! So we worked hard on that basis of confidence that is needed to collaborate comfortably.
  • There are particular images that I like. Allegro is composed of a series of still life photographs that has been put to speed. There is so much care that has gone into the composition of the cinematography.
  • Some designers retain a sense of humour about what they do, but others are deathly serious and have no life outside of it; they're lying awake night after night constructing dresses in their heads.
  • Let's continue to elevate and support each other, all you beautiful, smart, fun, sexy, hard working, talented, nurturing women out there.
