This past Saturday I went to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City to see the new costume exhibit titled “Model As Muse.” I died. And went to heaven. It was an ode to the models of the late 1940s, '60s, '70s, '80s and early '90s. Gowns, magazine covers and iconic photographs littered the different rooms, each decorated and pumping music that went with the showcased decade. Viva el Glamour! I was also reminded of how painfully gorgeous model Helena Christensen is. I mean, do y’all remember Chris Isaak’s “Wicked Game” video? A more droolworthy four minutes of film was never captured. Those hypnotic hazely-green-blue eyes and that long, dark, sandy hair—how I coveted it! And is it any shock to hear she’s Latina? That’s right! Miss Christensen is half Danish and half Peruvian. And she’s 100 percent legendary.
Get This Hair!
